Remove blinds & shades from brackets can be tricky if you have the "hidden" type brackets. Generally, a bracket is designed to:
  • Hook or Support the TOP FRONT headrail
  • Support or Clip the BACK BOTTOM headrail
If you have Hidden, Spring Loaded Brackets:
  1. PUSH the top front headrail (to compress the spring)
  2. Grab the back of bottom headrail, pull the bottom down while tilting the top front rail upward

The pictures below show you how to remove a headrail from brackets.

    2. if there's "tab" at rear bracket, then push that tab toward the glass so the rear bottom drops out
    3. inspect top and rear bottom, if there's slot, stick the flat head screw driver in there & turn
