Can blinds be cut to size?

Can you cut blinds that are too wide?

How do you cut roller shades to fit width?
To measure and cut the fabric of the blind to size, first place it on a flat surface.

The best way to do this is with a sharp hobby knife, although you can also use scissors.
Hidden bracket, principle: never pull down to remove. push top headrail in to losen the bottom rear. Then lift rear. if you can’t find any visual clue, roll the shades all the way down, use a flathead screwdrive to push up middle of bracket while pulling the headrail away from the window glass.
