Bedroom blind help

I took one of the bedroom blinds down to replace a frayed cord. Unfortunately, it came down so easily, I missed how it was hanging there. I've restrung the cord and am trying to get the blind back up. I can't seem to get it to latch in place. Part of the difficulty is that I have to lie on the bed and reach up with the blind. Here are photos of one of the latches and the top rail of the blind. Before I took it down, I noticed that the small tab that's sticking out at the bottom of the latch was under the top rail of the blind. How do I get my blind back up? The rest of the job was easy compared to this.

Not positive but from the looks of the pics, try this. I have marked your photos. First put the blind into the top rail as shown and then clip it into the bracket as shown in the pic of the bracket

Nice labeling. I just needed to hit it a bit harder. Your directions made it easy, peasy!

My pleasure, a picture is worth a thousand words. Glad it worked out for you.

Curtains verses Blines.

My wife took off the blines and installed curtains.
They are a lot quieter.
Just a thought

We took ours off and replaced with the MCR (I think they are called) blinds. They are a roll up Black-out blind and a Sunscreen blind. Sure do like them as opposed to the OEM fold up ones.

I'd love to have those but we just put $1200 into getting the PrecisionTemp and a few other things fixed. The shades will have to wait a bit longer.
