This brief tutorial will explain how easy it is to determine the correct size Hideaway Helper lockdown shade for any window in your building. It’s as easy as 1-2-3!

STEP 1:

Measure to find the width and length (in inches) of the window only. For further clarification, check out our quick video on How to Measure for Hideaway Helper Lockdown Shade.

  • Tip: If your window does not measure to the exact inch, round DOWN if the measurement is to the ½” or less and round UP to the nearest inch if the dimension measures above ½”.

(EXAMPLE) Window dimensions that are 10 ¾”W x 36 ½”L would be rounded to 11”W x 36”L

STEP 2:

Use the chart below to see if your window dimensions match of our standard size Hideaway Helper lockdown shades. It is best to look at the Description section to find a match.

  • Tip: All Hideaway Helper lockdown shades measure approximately 4” wider and 6” longer than the dimensions of the window that it is covering. Those are the first dimensions shown in the chart below. This allows for guaranteed full window coverage: 2” on each side, 2” on top to accommodate the industrial strength Velcro adhesive, and 4” at the bottom.

(EXAMPLE) Using the same window dimensions from above, a window that measures 11”W x 36”L would fit into a  Hideaway Helper Size B.
