Production & Delivery Lead Time

Our lead times vary from time to time. This is because all of our products are hand-built to order and production times can sometimes fluctuate. Please keep an eye on the red banner at the top of our website, which will give you an indication of current lead times.

Current Lead Time: 4 weeks

Your Window Pods® are supplied pre-assembled and ready for you to install. There is no need to alter the product if you have ordered correctly. If you have any concerns, please click here to view our installation videos.

If your Window Pods® have been supplied naked, we recommend that they are carpeted prior to fitting. We suggest that the face of the Window Pod® is carpeted and wrapped around the rear forming a 1” overlap round the outer edges of the frame and the inside of the aperture. This eliminates any chance of the blind rattling against the plastic when you are driving. An instructional video on how to carpet correctly can be found on our website here.

Window Pods® are designed with ease of fitting in mind; however, you may find it easier with an extra pair of hands to hold the product in place while you screw in the provided fixings.

IMPORTANT: When unboxing your Window Pods® do not use a blade as you may sever the cord which suspend the blind. Once your products are out of the box check that the blind handle is central to the frame, you may need to centralise this if it is out of alignment. On most Window Pods® you can move the top rail of the blind which is fixed into the Window Pod® with a small amount of pressure.

Even though great care is taken into preventing this from happening, we often cannot control the conditions in which the product is transported.

It is important that the fixings are not over tightened, as this can pull the Window Pod® in too close and warp the plastic over time. If you have over tightened any of the fixings, just back them off slightly before finishing off the installation.
