Why do I have to cut my EL on both sides?
Our Easy Lift shades are designed to be used as one shade only, and cannot be cut in half. They have internal cords that are evenly spaced apart, and trimming them on only one side will make the shade lopsided.
For instance if your window measures 25″ in width, you will need to cut your shade on the 25″ mark on the ruler on either side to make sure the shade works correctly.
Cutting past the minimum width markers may damage the internal cords and lifting mechanism of the shade. Please note that if you cut the shades on only one side and the shade is uneven, this is not covered under warranty.
