Payless Décor’s Premium Bamboo shades come with a universal “L” shaped metal bracket for installation.  There are several sets of holes on the bracket that will allow you to back, top, or side mount the shades depending upon how it is turned.  There is a portion that is threaded that comes down like a screw with a wingnut and washer attached.   

The Premium Bamboo shades will be routed at the top.  You will need to unscrew the wingnut and remove the washer from the bracket.  Then, you just slip the shade over the screw portion of the bracket.  Next, just replace the washer and wingnut and then the shade is installed securely. 

The bracket is about 2” deep by about 1 3/8” long.  In order to inside mount these, you will need a minimum depth of at least ½”.  If you want a flush fit (where your shade is fully recessed) then you need to have at least 2” of depth. 

To back mount, you will utilize the back set of holes.

To top mount, you will utilize the upper set of holes.

To side mount, you will turn the bracket and use the back set of holes.

The hardware will be exactly the same for inside and outside mount.  Screws and dry wall anchors will also be included in the hardware packet.

Make sure to check out the measuring guide before ordering so that you will get a perfect fit:
