Found 29th Mar 2013
We have used these in our children's rooms; they do a good job of blocking out the light and are pretty simple to fit.

2ft - £5.31
4ft - £8.62
6ft - £12.64 - This is a bargain as 6ft ones are regularly £20+

Various colours available, plenty of choice.

The reviews make for painful reading, these blinds are a false … The reviews make for painful reading, these blinds are a false investment. People repeatedly saying that the flimsy plastic cord breaks within minutes and that the blind is held together with cardboard. Stories of people waking up in the morning after putting it up the day before and it's fallen apart in the night, yes the first night! You have been warned...



some do

hundreds that say otherwise though

at the price quoted i am happy to take a chance if it breaks the first night i will return it anyway

Could do with something like these, thanks.

I've had 2 up for 3 years at least. Perhaps I followed the instructions properly...

Don't know why I went a bit yoda there

You really need to ask that mark? You think they would sell these in varying downward lengths? Get a grip man

A man he must be. Actual lol

It's all about the fixings quality at the wall ..... 'siso' as they say. The blinds are as similar quality to other makes, DIY level 3/5.

I've found them very good, had them in some rooms now for over 4 yrs and still good, just ordered though some more dif colours lol lol fancy a change, and ordered couple etc for other rooms

Just bought and fitted two...brill

I bought 7 of these for the same window in 1967 and 3 are still up, hot.

Great price

do they really black the morning sun out ??

do they really black the morning sun out ??



Yes they do

FYI: Ikea also do (or did) blackout blinds - though have found they shrink significantly in the sun, their white ones from a few years back do anyway!

These were popular during the air-raids in WW2. Given that North Korea have declared war, I can see these becoming popular again. Are they still effective in modern warfare though? What, have I missed something?

just picked mine up

many thanks easy to fit look a decent quality very happy with the price

Nightmare to fit oO

Of the two I bought one said remove 30mm to account for the brackets, one said 12mm.

Luckily I was sensible and cut off 30mm for both otherwise it would have been too wide.

I got ones like these from Harry Corry for £18 last year. They are on purple and does the bedroom good. The only thing is rhe inside lining near the room has started to chip. They keep 99% of light out but of you have them hanging inside the window frame and not directly to the full length of the wondow itself you will get strips of daylight down either side. But I use mine with lined cuetains

Avoid these. I installed them on Monday. The material came away from the cheap cardboard roll yesterday.
