8 8 Vertical headrail » Will no longer require unscrewing the endcap as only one endcap will be on the product in the box—the 2 nd endcap and spacer are located in the hardware box » Before cutting, the associate will need to remove the cardboard insert attached to the tilter and cut as they do today (the machine will still punch a hole in the headrail but it will no longer be utilized on this new product). » Once cut and the associate removes the extra carriers, they can attach the spacer as they do today and then attach the endcap by tightening the 2 screws at the bottom of the endcap Vertical vanes » No changes to current cutting process Changes to consider when cutting Vertical Product

9 9 1) All hardware is contained internally in faux head rail 2) Plastic wrap has been removed, utilize Velcro strap for larger blinds 3) Valance now measures packaged blind width, NOT labeled package width i.e. Green Box: 35x64 (blind measures 34 1/2”, valance measures 35”) Blue Box: 35x64 (blind measures 34 1/2”, valance measures 34 1/2” 4) Place valance in notch on squaring block, on second cut, for both inside and outside mounts Levolor Faux & Real Wood Packaging/Product Changes *note: all new packages will be in blue boxes, not white
