What are Folding Bars?

How do mounting Brackets effect my measurements?

U brackets add 1/2 inch to the end

L brackets add 1 1/4 inches to the end

I brackets adds 1.5 inches from the end to the first screw hole and then 10/16 to the next screw hole

How many mounting brackets do I need?

The majority of installations use mountings on the both sides of the window, leaving the top and bottom unmounted.
If using U brackets you will only need 1 bracket for every 2 ends with a 1/2 bracket for an odd end.

Example: a 48 inch wide by 60 inch window would have 7 ends on each of the 60 inch sides needing 3.5 U brackets per side which equals 7 U brackets
(with the 7th cut in half)
