    • Bottom Width: Measure the width inside the frame at the bottom.

    Record the smallest measurement to ensure the blind fits perfectly inside the frame.

    • Left Height: Measure the height inside the frame from top to bottom on the left.
    • Middle Height: Measure the height inside the frame from top to bottom in the middle.
    • Right Height: Measure the height inside the frame from top to bottom on the right.
