MOVEABLE ARCHED WINDOW TREATMENTS
Beaded Pull Cord - the beaded pull cord is used to open and close the shades. The beaded pull cord comes out of the shade guide arm and "loops" back returning to the guide arm. This continuous loop allows for smooth, easy operation of the shades. The bottom of the loop (towards the floor) should be approximately 48" from the floor and fastened in place with the cord loop tension bracket. Go to Beaded Pull Cord to view a photo.
