Preperation

  • Make sure the window is clean where the suction cups are going to attach
  • Starting with an upper corner of the window, work across the top first, then down the sides, and finally along the bottom
  • As you go around the window, adjust the size of the Blind to fit using the Velcro patches. 

Troubleshooting

When a Gro Anywhere Blind has been stored away the suction cups can become flattened and won’t stick effectively to the window (this sometimes happens with brand new Blinds that have been flattened in transit). The suction cups stick better when the surface to which they are stuck (and the suction cups themselves) are clean and free from dirt. In addition, changes in temperature or humidity may gradually make cups lose suction. In order to achieve the best suction:

  • Clean the window you are applying the suction cups to with soap and water (they won’t adhere well to a dirty surface). De-grease the glass with rubbing alcohol if necessary (bathroom/window cleaners usually leave a residue). Wipe clean with a soft lint-free cloth.
  • If necessary, wash the suction cups with warm, soapy water, rinse them off again and pat them dry with a lint-free cloth. (Dirty suction cups will not stick as well). Make sure both the inside of the suction cups and your window are clean and dry before application.
  • To enhance suction and help keep the seal tight, dampen your fingertip with water and lightly moisten the inner rim of the suction cup. If this does not work, a tiny dab of Vaseline or cooking oil may be rubbed on the rim of the cup. Moistening helps create a tighter seal. The key is to not get too much moisture... just barely enough to coat the surface.
  • Press the centre of each suction cup all the way down firmly to the glass and keep firm pressure for about 15 seconds, then gently release the pressure until all the air bubbles inside are released and a vacuum is created to firmly seal the cups to the surface. (What you are trying to do, is to push all of the trapped air between the suction cup and window out from behind the suction cup). Try not to let the suction cups slide, if they slide easily you might have used too much moisture.
  • The closer the suction cups and the window are in temperature, and the closer this is to "room" temperature, the better results you will have.
  • The suction cups may need to be 'burped' periodically by pressing down on them to remove any air that may have seeped in.

If a suction cup still won’t stick:

  • Try rolling it between your fingers to reshape it
  • To return some elasticity to a suction cup, or if it has become flattened or deformed, place it carefully in boiling water for 2-3 minutes (when children are not around). This will help 'reset' the plastic and make it more flexible, allowing it to return to its normal shape.

Removal — Important

When it’s time to remove the blind, or if you are taking it down to go on holiday, remember:

  • Don’t grab the blind and pull - this risks serious damage to the window glass. Simply pull on the release tab of each individual suction cup to break the suction. The ‘release tab peeling action' lets air in, and the suction cup stops sucking (this also eliminates damage to the cup edge caused by the 'finger nail removal picking action'). 
  • Please note that pulling on the blind to remove it from the window may lead to damaging the eyelets and the blind, and will cause the glass to flex leading to possible window breakage.

Limitations of use

For temporary use only, remove from window when not in use. Do not use on windows that have damaged edges, visible chips, cracks or any other glass or frame damage. Do not use on laminated, textured/patterned or leaded glass or windows with internal wire strengthening. The Gro Company will not be held responsible for any glass breakage resulting from use of the Gro Anywhere Blind. The blind can be safely applied to normal single or double glazed windows in good condition.

Great, but needs to be a different colour
Susan

Found the blind amazing with one Big exception. In summer evenings when the sun is still warm & glaring through my sons window, the blind does block out the light but also turns the window into a radiator!!

They need to be silver or something on the reverse to not absorb the heat. End up opening the windows, but the blind falls off & light comes through were the opening is.

We live in the uk, so it's it often sunny with heat, but do find this very annoying when it is.

Fantastic
Jo

I brought one of these to go in my son's room as the light disturbed him when he was a baby, he's now 3 and a half and we still use it on a nightly basis, we also have one for our baby daughter now too!! I Love that when we go away we can just pack it up and it will adjust to any window! It works better for us than a simple blackout blind as fits snug to the window by the suction cups. Would highly recommend!!!

Does the job
Johanna

We bought one of these for our daughters bedroom as she was a summer baby and it worked a treat. She slept longer instantly and I have used it with both my other daughters since. So easy to use and transportable so ideal for travel. Highly recommend!

Another practical and well designed product from gro.
Grace

Brilliant blackout blind and easy to put up on most windows. We use this at home every night and works great but I often find its falling off by the morning (12 hrs up though) also on old windows it sometimes doesn't hold up too well. Could with a little extra material on the edges to block out that bright light in the mornings especially as it's getting lighter now. Other than a few tweaks that generally you can do yourself it's great.

Good quality, does what it says on the tin.
Tracey Miller

We bought two of these blinds when our son was born to use on holiday. The worked really well, not only for him, but for us too. They kept the room really dark until we were ready to wake up even in summer when it was sunny at 5am.
Really good product, easy to pack away, made with good quality fabrics. Worth every penny!

Granddaughter napped easily at my house today for the first time
Val

I look after my granddaughter one day a week .Nap time has always been problematic as the room is lighter than her nursery . This arrived today , easy to fit , stayed up well and made the room very dark . She made a cursory cry when I put her down and then slept for an hour and a half . Great product . If the window facing side could be silvered to reflect sunlight it would be perfect .

A must-have for fussy sleeper!
Aoife

Was given this as a gift recently and am very pleased with it!

It works brilliantly for our 11month old who is difficult to put to bed during the day. And especially useful during these longer, lighter evenings. We use it both at home and when we go on our travels. Very portable.

Would recommend to anybody.

excellent item
Rebecca

Great item, we take this on holiday or when staying with grandparents, it's so portable and doesn't take up much luggage space. Am also convinced that the blackout helps my little one to stay in bed a little bit longer, so parents get some chance of a lie in ;-)

Excellent item
Becky

Got this to take away when we're away from home and it's so portable it's brilliant! Plus it folds nice and compact so doesn't take up much luggage space, it's so worth it to ensure my little one gets a good night's sleep - and I'm convinced the black out helps him to sleep that little bit longer, so parents get a lie in! ;-)

Keeps out sunlight but not for too long
Fiona

We bought this for our son's room, his windows are floor to ceiling and we only bought 1 pack of Gro Blind so it's not enough to cover all of it. However it does keep out most of the sunlight. Only downside is it doesn't stay up long enough, the corners pop off soon after putting them up...

One of the best (Gro) inventions!.
Eleanor

I bought a Gro Anywhere Blind to block out more of the light from my twins girls room as they had started to stay awake at their daily nap time rather than sleep as it is still so bright in their room. I did not no quite how good this blind would be until I purchased it myself, as even if it blocked out more of the light than their (supposedly black out) curtains I would be please. I fitted it with true ease and when I closed the blinds even without the curtain at their daily nap time it was pitch black! Absolutely incredible. One of the best blinds I have owned and I even purchased another for my room, so we can all sleep soundly in the dark!

Gro Anywhere Blind
Nooren

My Baby's Cotbed is infront of the Glass Window. As Spring/Summer is ahead so these blinds would definitely help her not to wake up coz of the crispy sunshine which comes directly on her. The room will remain dark too plus the gud thing about these blinds is that they are portable too. I would love to have these blinds. Fingers Crossed until 9th March ;)

Good quality must-have item!
Mealie

What an amazing piece of kit! It is a must-have essential item for travel and every day use!

We bought this blind for going away on holiday, and it made all the difference. Our daughter slept throughout the night, as the holiday villa had very light blinds which let the sun through.
It was easy to put up as it has suction pads, and also easy to fold up and take with us. It was light and easy to pack.
The fabric is really good quality and looks nice with the black fabric with stars on.

We loved it so much, that now we have got back from holiday, we use it in her nursery, just to make sure that no light comes through. Really can't recommend this enough.

Brilliant!
Emma B

We loved the Gro blind! It was and still is fantastic for taking anywhere! The Velcro means it fits on any window! It does have to be correctly velcroed as on smaller windows it can let a small amount of light through! We would buy another if needed!

Great product
Fran

It's so easy to attach to any window with the suction cups and has really helped our daughter nap during the day, blocks the light out really well

AMAZING PRODUCT !!
Christine

We live in Australia and I have 3 grandchildren under 2 years old.

How handy would this product be for both home and travelling.

Just what we needed!
Nancy Cullinane

This was just perfect over the Christmas period when we were visiting friends and family, most of which didn't have blackout curtains etc! Fitted most of the windows we used it in!

Versatile and easy to fit
Annette

Fantastic versatile blind not only for use in my home but great to take on holiday and so easy to fold up to take to grandmas too!

Blinding Product (5stars)
Brooke

I love this blind, it really is one of those worthwhile buys, handy, folds up & fits in your bag & can be taken anywhere. The moon & stars look really tranquil & my baby has a really good rest when I use it. I've rated 5 stars & certainly would recommend :)

Great for travel, not for frequent use
donna

Gro anywhere blind is great for infrequent use, only because I have a routine where my baby sleeps and wakes three times a day in his cot. Wake up involves opening the blinds, singing a song etc, and disconnecting the suction pads every time, whilst holding a baby is really awkward. It really does the job of being a total blackout though.

Definately worth having
Louise Hanlon

Great product- we found it really makes a difference to our daughters sleeping. Little bit fiddly to fit and the suckers dont always secure themselves very well and need a couple of attempts.

Brilliant
Rebecca Gordon

I have used two blinds on our windows at home for some time now, even though my little boy has blackout curtains and they are brilliant, they stick really well and I have taken one on holiday with us and they travel well in the bag provided

Great idea and has proved useful, but suckers not 100%
Samantha

I have used this a lot and it has proved really useful when staying away from home. But it can be a bit of a pain to get up sometimes, as the suckers don't always suck! We have always managed it in the end and I would still recommend it, particularly as I see some improvements have been made since my purchase.

Love it
Tam

We only have wooden blinds in our nursery and as we rent we are unable to put up any curtains. The Gro Blind is fantastic. I have it stuck to the window and it has made such a difference to the room. It's now nice and dark and my baby's sleeping has improved. Highly recommend this product.

Fantastic product
Danielle

This is an absolutely fantastic product and can't believe I have waited so long before getting one,my daughter sleeps so much better as her room is usually very light and it's now pitch black.would recommend to any parent and adults also

Fantastic product
Alison

Bought this to use for when my little girl stays at grandparents and it's superb!! Really easy to put up and keeps the room dark even when daylight outside so she doesnt wake up at the crack of dawn!! Very happy with this would recommend to anyone

Best invention ever
Shell

I have even recommended this blind for an adult who has a streetlight outside of her window. I think my summer nights could have been 10 times worse if we did not have this for our sons room

ome and
Em B

Great product, stays stuck and really blacks out. so means more sleep for everyone-happy days. we use it at home and it's always packed in the suitcase when we travel.

Versatile, good quality blind - love it!
Luca bear

I highly recommend this product. We take it away with us where ever we go. It fits all windows, and is adjustable. It does a fantastic job of blocking out the light. We're currently using it in our room until we buy a permanent black out blind as it's so good.
Easy to put up, stays up well and easily transportable.

Light nights + gro anywhere blind = sleeping child and happy parents
Rose

Light nights were meaning my little boy refused to go to sleep at his usual bedtime so I needed to do something quickly about it! The gro blind is very easy to put up and will re-size to fit most window sizes plus most importantly, the blind blocks out all light very effectively. We're really pleased with our purchase.

Brilliant for daddy and baby, home and away!
Alfie's Mummy

I got this blind primarily to use at the family caravan to keep light out of the bedroom so baby could sleep. I thought I'd try it out in our master bedroom at home. My husband works nights and when he came home he was amazed, the room was so dark he had to leave the door open to let light in from the hallway so he could get undressed for bed.. I've tried everything to keep light out of our bedroom but this really works.

Great product on travel or at home
Celine

I am using the blind on the window in my son's room and it is great to block the sun, especially during the summer nights. I take with me when going to friends too. I have had it for the past 3 years and it is like new. Great quality!

Really makes a difference
Manon

Bought it for our holidays and made all the difference. Our then 10 month old could nap like he was at home. Even used it in our bedroom over summer, to make the nights last a little longer :-)

Couldn't live without it
ladybird1088

Once summer came in my daughter struggled to sleep with so much day light coming through the window. I put this up and she napped for 2 hours straight, and has since slept 12 hours every night with two 2 hour naps everyday, she's 14 months! It comes everywhere with me when we stay away over night and it is truly a brilliant product. In the summer I can still open the window without it effecting the blind to keep little one cool. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone.

Amazing Product
babyalves

Amazing product to block out the daylight while you are away. Very easy to use and takes no space in the suitcase. Highly recommend this product.

Super
Carol

really good - easy to adjust to a smaller size, and the suckers are v good (I thought it might not stay up on the window very well, but it was fine). Just as useful for a grownup who likes a dark room too !

Blocks out sun
Todd

Great for blocking out sun in early morning/evening. Keeps our baby snoozing thru til 8am .

Great product for your hols
Sarah

We bought this for visiting family and going on holiday, and I have to say it was a very worthwhile purchase.
It's big enough to fit any window, but folds down small enough to pop in your bag, or store away when not in use.
