Operating Instructions for GlideRise IV™

MCD’s GlideRise IV™ technology is a major advancement in manual, spring roller window shades. They utilize a very high-quality spring roller system and auto-stopping mechanism encased in an aluminum tube. GlideRise IV™ represents a huge step forward in quality and innovation.

Shades are easily lowered by hand to virtually any position and retracted with a pull-to-release movement. MCD’s unique technology allows for a controlled and user-adjustable ascent speed and MCD’s AutoStop™ will stop the shade at a predetermined set point every time it’s raised. The shade ascent speed and stop point can both be easily changed if desired.

If necessary, the spring tension (Speed) and stop position can be adjusted before installation by simply turning the appropriate adjustment screw at the ends of each shade using a flat blade screwdriver.

GlideRise IV™ Speed Adjustment

*Flat blade screwdriver needed. Push in adjuster with screwdriver before adjusting.*

Your shades were set to the ideal speed at the factory and should not require any adjustment. Fine increases or decreases are easily made using the appropriate adjuster.

To adjust the speed at which your shade retracts first identify the speed adjuster – the speed adjuster is BLACK in color – it may be on either end depending upon shade configuration. Turn the adjuster clockwise to increase the spring tension and ascent speed. Turn it counter-clockwise to decrease the speed.

Test your shade after adjusting by lowering and raising the shade as normal.

Caution: Over tensioning may cause the shade to “stick” at its upper limit. If you have to “break loose” the shade to lower it, the tension is too high. Release tension until the shade can be easily lowered without having to break it loose, yet allowing it to fully retract.

GlideRise IV™ AutoStop™ Adjustment

*Flat blade screwdriver needed. Push in adjuster with screwdriver before adjusting.*

To adjust the point at which your shade will stop when raised, first identify the AutoStop™ adjuster – it may be on either end depending upon shade configuration. The AutoStop™ adjuster is GRAY in color. Turn the adjuster clockwise to lower the set point and turn the dial counter-clockwise to raise the set point.
