          The blind was OK but the plastic fitting for the blind is rubbish -- and you can no longer get replacements hence the blind is now no good-- so be careful what type of fitting you get with your blind

              Not much use with older blinds

                  The original plastic wall bracket for the blind was too flimsy for purpose and mine broke within a few months of purchase. The replacement bracket is made of metal which is an excellent move. However, the original plastic bracket and the new metal one have different spaces between the holes. If you drill a new hole it is too near to the original one. They should have made the brackets the same size.

                    Best Uses

                      We purchased the product to replace the broken bracket that came with the original blind. The one criticism that we do have is that you can't buy the fixing brackets on their own without the chain etc which is all we needed in this case

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      In our opinion the website appears to be inaccurate or requires updating on a more regular basis. The website showed there was one of these products in stock however when we visited the store we were told this was incorrect. We were advised by staff to order the product on line rather than in the store as it was the most efficient way. On doing so we found that the store was still showing, incorrectly, one in stock.
                      We placed our order and in just over 12 hours we received an email informing us that the product was ready to collect in store.
                      So either they had received a delivery between 1920hrs on the Saturday night, when we placed our order, and 1035hrs on the Sunday morning, when we received the email advising us our order was ready for collection, or they had them in stock after all.
                      I cannot fault the service or level of communication though,we were kept fully appraised of the fact the order had been received and then that our order was ready for collection. I do however question their system for updating of stock levels and wonder whether we had an unnecessary trip.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Stupid system, once order completed the website says it is ready for collection but this is not the case, you have to actually wait for an email telling you when it is available. I knew this because of another customer review complaining of an abortive trip to collect something that hadn't in fact arrived. I avoided a needless trip, thankfully, as I live 35 miles away, but as this flaw has been pointed out before I don't understand why it hasn't been rectified.

                          Having read some of the earlier reviews I was very wary about this product. But I had absolutely nothing to worry about.
                          I have to commend Dunelm they have obviously read and taken note of the earlier criticism and ammended the product accordingly. Overall this is a really simple product to install and better than the original fitting.

                            The reserve and collect facility is unlike anything else I have come across. You go through the process on the website and find how many are in stock. You click to reserve (knowing they are in stock), and then receive an email which appears to confirm the reservation. At this point I went to the store, where a member of staff pointed out that in small letters the email says you will be emailed again to advise when the item is in stock.

                            It turned out the item (previously shown as 'in stock') was discontinued.

                              Very pleased with product. As the tube of my roller blind is a bit wider than the part that is inserted I made a couple of plastic shims to take up the excess space. was able to use the same top screw hole as the original bracket and drilled a new hole for the lower screw. With a little bit of thought and DIY this product is an excellent alternate to throwing out an otherwise perfectly good roller blind. Yes I reccomend it!.

                                        Good quality replacement for the poor quality original. It would be better if the fixing holes were in the same place as the original.

                                          These were much better as they are now made of metal! The original plastic ones snapped within about a month of installation and we hadn't had a blind in the kitchen for over 6 months. Would be great if this were the the default mechanism supplied!

                                              I bought these as a replacement for the original brackets which my tenant broke. On the plus side they are metal which is much better than the plastic ones originally supplied with the Dunelm Mill blind, on the minus the screw holes are in a different place on the metal one so I had to make new holes. I have just bought a new blind too and the replacement brackets match the brackets on their new blinds so just unfortunate that my blind is an older one.

                                                    I was a bit reluctant to buy this product due to the reviews. But i bought it and noticed that the brackets are now made out of metal instead of plastic so it is much better.

                                                        The kit is different from the one shown - it now has a white metal bracket. I had to buy the replacement brackets as the originals being plastic, broke. It was fitted quickly and should last. These are what should have been provided with the original roller blind!

                                                              The product is just what I have been looking for but on operation it is poor. When closing the blind the control wheel moves and makes it impossible to operate properly, I have to use the other hand to move the control wheel back into line with the hanging of the plastic chain to operate properly. Still able to work blinds but I have to go through this procedure. Not good, would not recommend.

Got the original with the blind and the blind if mainly for deocoration as my son likes it lighter but when visitors stay it gets put down. On the 2nd Use it snapped and the blind fell of the wall. The 2nd one didnt didnt even get used and snapped and again fell off the wall. The plastic at the screw holes is too flimsy and cannot withstand the weight it has to hold up let alone if it gets used. Disappointed as the old metal ones were superior to this

The roller blinds are very cheap but in the long run your better off spending the extra few pounds to save you the hassle these cause.

Since then the fitting on another blind purchased at the same time has broken. Fortunately no damage has been done when the blinds fell.
                                                                                                  I hope these fittings last longer than the originals.

                                                                                                  I have over the past year made many purchases from your Gloucester store, including made to measure curtains all of which I have been more than satisfied with. My only problem has been the blind fixings.

The problem is that although the blind is neatly located as per instructions between the brackets with the chain cover upermost, the control mechanism has locked and will not budge. I have now removed the control wheel and am still unable to free the wheel. I now need to purchse a replacement control wheel to get the blind to operate.
