Complete darkness is easily achieved by ensuring that there are no gaps around the window where light can enter. Easyblackout fabric attaches directly to VELCRO® brand hook fastener (included) on the window frame.  You can also use it with our suction cups (not included in this kit) to use your easyblackout when away from home.

Between uses, instead of removing your blackout blind, you can use our magnetic tiebacks (pictured, but not included) to hold your blind open - these are available to purchase separately on our Accessories page, and you can see them here.

Each kit includes: easyblackout blackout material, self-adhesive VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape and instructions. There is enough VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape included to make one blind of the maximum size.  If you wish to use your kit to make two or more smaller blinds, then additional VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape may be required.  All that is required in addition is a measuring tape and scissors.

Easy to use easyblackout blackout blind kit

  1. Cut the easyblackout blackout material to the shape and size required (or cut to make more than one blind).  Where possible we suggest allowing an overlap of approx. 2cm on each side.  This 2cm excess should 'fold around' and sit against the window recess or surround.
  2. Apply the self-adhesive VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape (supplied) around the window frame.  Please note that this is suitable for upvc frames and is not recommended for wooden frames where the adhesive may pull paint away when the VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape is removed.  For wooden frames we suggest using our easyblackout kit with removable Frame Fasteners instead.
  3. Press the easyblackout material against the VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape and hey presto, blackout!

Available in a range of colours and sizes, simply cut to fit.  This material will not fray and does not require a hem.

►Width and drop Please note that either side can be used as the width or drop, ie each kit can be used either way around.

►Cutting Service We can cut your blind to size if you wish.  Please measure your window including all of the frame, ie from wall to wall.  Please add 4cm to the height and to the width measurements.  This gives the small overlap on each of the four sides which is required for best blackout.  Please note that we will cut the size you tell us, we don't add the 4cm.

Please make sure  your measurements are accurate and take account of any protruding handles as we cannot refund cut to size blinds unless we have made a mistake.

The smallest size we cut is 29cm in either height or width.

We normally only send offcuts of a substantial size, but you can tell us in the comments box during checkout whether you wish to receive these or not.

►Difference between 'easyblackout' and 'original' blackout kits? With both kits, you stick VELCRO® brand hook fastener tape around the window frame. With the original blackout kit, you also stick self-adhesive loop fastener tape to the blackout material, but with easyblackout there is no need to do this as this material will attach directly to the VELCRO® brand hook fastener on the window frame. Easyblackout also works with our suction cups to make it portable or if you prefer not to stick tape to your window frame. The original type is a lighter material and more compact if rolled or folded between uses. In terms of blackout they are the same.  Both can be used with our magnetic tiebacks.

►'Seconds' easyblackout kits: From time to time, we have some easyblackout material that isn't quite perfect in appearance - it is perfectly usable, but may have some small marks so we can't sell it as 'first' stock.  We think it would be a shame to throw it away so we offer these kits at a discounted price.  It is a bargain really, because when your blackout is up, you can't see it anyway!
