I got my blinds from JC Penney in the mail and thought this would be a good day to put them up. I spread the contents over the table, opened the directions, and checked to make sure all the parts were there. Guess what? ...they were! lol except for one little problem. The brackets mount up and back which will not work since my windows slide to the side and the track is mounted inside the casement. I need the optional side mounting brackets which are not in the standard package. Since no one at the store where I ordered them mentioned that, I did not know to order the optional side mounting brackets. I now have a special order in for the optional side mounting brackets and they should be here by Oct. 22. So the blinds sit here for another week before I can install them because I don't have the optional side mounting brackets. And yes, I have to make a big joke out of the optional side mounting brackets or I'd just be so frustrated that they're sitting here all ready to install if I only knew to order the optional side mounting brackets in the first place.
