Features of working with roller shutters and systems on brackets
The design of roller shutters is thought out in such a way that most of these systems can be removed and installed as desired. If necessary, it is possible to detach the whole structure or only the shaft with the sheet. If the entire system is dismantled, it is either removed from the Velcro or clip, or removed after unscrewing the screws. In those cases where you only need to remove the shaft, use a screwdriver to bend the special fixing tongue and pull the cloth toward you.
If none of the above options are suitable, then you have to dismantle the entire structure together with the brackets. They are usually fixed to the metal corners with hexagon screws. In this case, simply unscrew the bolts and remove the shutters.
It should be noted that the screws are first unscrewed at the bottom of the structure, and then - at the top. Otherwise, the system may simply collapse or deform.
On the mansard-type windows and plastic profiles, sunscreen filters are often fastened with special removable clamps using clamping keys. The key simply rotates clockwise until the required degree of fixation is obtained. To remove the system, you need to use such a key by turning it in the opposite direction.

In the case of working with specific designs that have been custom-made, you may need the help of professionals. This point needs to be taken into account even before the systems are installed. After troublesome care of light filters quickly tires and significantly reduces the level of their practicality.
