These are simple to install (2 hooks, hang blinds from hooks), and they look wonderful up. They do not block out much sun, so not appropriate for sun blockage and privacy. (Looking at other reviews, Yes, the cord can pull out-- that is a safety feature. You just push it back into place.) These are beautiful. easy to size down if you have to (they measure exactly the width measurement, I used scissors to snip and trim for my crooked windows!) I am very happy with this product.
Unfortunately, I should have considered more thoroughly what the quality would be for the price. The price was what I was looking for but Im dissappointed in the quality. We hung them outside on our patio around our hot tub. They're ok. You can see right through them which defeats the purpose of having them. They are SUPER THIN so BEWARE. Im not sure what they even accomplish. 1. Difficult to install 2. Cheap hardware & no instructions 3. Poor quality made from cheap materials 4. Not sure how these can be actual bamboo 5. Very thin/clear able to see straight through them 6. Made in China
I purchased it to screen out some sun during the day because the balcony of my apartment faces the south. It does the job perfectly. I like the fact that it shows/hides just enough that any passerby knows that there is another human being not being able to recognize the face. Here comes a BIG BUT though. After hanging on my balcony for 2 months through some recent humid/rainy weeks, I found molds spreading onto the whole surface to my shock. I hate any kind of molds or bugs. The blind is so big I dared not put in the bath to clean. I took it down and sprayed it with hydrogen peroxide and isopropyl alcohol alternating in turn many times. Some dye was lost in the process that the blind is not solid in color. I assume molds will come back in time. If it is too much and/or too soon, I'll have to look for a replacement other than this product. I am rather sad because I liked this so much before the mold problem.
these are extremely flimsy I ordered them just for decorative purposes so they are fine under blackout curtains that I hung at the ceiling so I need a filler for above the window, they are defiantly not going to block any light and I have now found the same size but way better quality at big box store so they do for what I needed but I would defiantly not recommend!
The porch of my mobile home is screened with 9 panels, covering 3 sides. I bought a blind for each of the panels - some needed to filter the sunlight and some for the overall esthetic appearance. I am pleased with my purchase. The porch now has the feel of an additional room -
If you are expecting to get window coverage and some privacy, don't buy these!
