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 simple touch-n-release motion. MCD’s unique technology allows for a controlled and user-adjustable ascent speed and MCD’s AutoStop™ will stop the shades at a predetermined set-point every time it’s up. The shade ascent speed and stop point can both be easily changed if desired.

The most exciting and useful feature of MCD’s new GlideRise IV™ technology is the ease of adjustment. Shade spring tension (speed) and stop position are now adjusted very easily, while still installed, simply by turning the appropriate adjustment dial at the ends of each shade.

All shades are delivered already tensioned (Speed) and set to stop at the appropriate upper position (AutoStop™).

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 that your shades retract, 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 shades after adjusting by lowering and raising the shade as normal.

Caution: Over tensioning may cause the shades to “stick” at their 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 setpoint.
