Maximising the magic of Porta Fox blackout blinds - ensuring perfect suction adhesion

Welcome to the world of Porta Fox, where we understand the importance of creating a peaceful and soothing sleep environment for your little ones.

Our blackout blinds are designed to make daytime naptime and bedtime an absolute breeze, but they do rely on suction cups to work their magic.

In this guide, we'll share some tips and tricks to ensure those suction cups stick flawlessly, so you can enjoy undisturbed sleep and restful nights for your kids.

Tip 1: Start with a clean surface

Just like any other suction cup-based accessory, our Porta Fox blackout blinds need a clean surface to work effectively. Before attaching the blinds, make sure the window or glass surface is free from dust, dirt, and any residue. A quick wipe with a damp cloth followed by a dry one should do the trick.

Tip 2: Moisture matters

Did you know that a bit of moisture can make all the difference when it comes to suction cups? To enhance adhesion, moisten the suction cup slightly with water or a small amount of Vaseline before attaching it to the window. This helps create a better seal and can significantly improve suction.

Tip 3: Press and seal

Once you've moistened the suction cups, firmly press them against the window or glass surface. Apply even pressure to ensure a secure seal. Make sure there's no trapped air between the cup and the surface. Our Porta Fox blackout blinds come with multiple suction cups, so distribute them evenly for the best results.

Tip 4: The Wood Challenge

For those who plan to use our blackout blinds on wooden surfaces, we understand that suction cups may not be the ideal solution. However, we've got you covered! Each Porta Fox blackout blind set includes double-sided Velcro strips. These can be used to secure the blinds to wood surfaces, providing you with flexibility and functionality. You may need to purchase additional Velcro if you intend to hold the entire weight of the blind this way.

Tip 5: Maintenance Matters

To keep your Porta Fox blackout blinds in top-notch condition, periodically check the suction cups for any signs of wear or damage. If you notice any issues, replace the suction cups promptly to maintain optimal suction performance.

 By following these simple tips, you can ensure that the suction cups stick securely, providing your little ones with the darkness they need for peaceful sleep. Say goodbye to disruptive daylight and hello to restful nights with Porta Fox. Sweet dreams await!
