As we have mentioned before, we offer many different brands of wood and faux wood blinds, all with slightly different applications and price points. But without a doubt, we prefer to offer the wood and faux wood blinds that use the "California Clip" to hold the valance in place. Unlike other clips, that are plastic and will become brittle overtime and fail, we have never seen a "California Clip" fail. We are not even sure it can.
The California Clip is a hidden, metal valance clip that works by hooking onto the front of the 2" or 2 1/2" faux or wood blind head rail. When ordered with an inside mount blind, the head rail needs to be installed so it projects outside of the window frame slightly, so that the 1/2" return will sit flush to the wall.
The ease of install and removal is remarkable. The 1/2" returns give the valance a better look as it provides some depth to the finished look - and years later if you ever need to service your blind - the California clips will not break. A great innovation for the old standby of the window covering industry. So, do yourself a favor and get the blind with the California Clip - you will be glad you did.
