Since there is no cord, I am wondering if the shade stays up, or if it is just down all the time?

Answer: 
You can adjust the shade manually with the included clips (2 per shade, look like chip clips). You just fold it up or down to the desired level, then clip the excess pleats. They hold them well since the shade is so light.

Answer: 
Hi. I appreciate the easy variety of up and down you are free to choose because of the clips you use. Sooo much better than cords that break and tangle up. The shades look great and really darken up the room as needed. Enjoy your shades!

Answer: 
kay jay,
This shade works by using small clothespin like clips at the bottom to raise or lower the shade to the desired height. This way you can easily put the shade up during the daytime and down at night should you want.

Answer: 
Hi woodtx,
This shade mounts either on the inside or outside of the window frame.
If your current shade is mounted on the outside, you can mount this shade on the inside.
If your current shade is on the inside of the window frame, you will not be able to use this shade.
Mike,

Hello yrrek,
Thank you for your question.
Redi Shade Paper Black Out Window Shades are black on both the inside and the outside.
If you prefer the outside to be a lighter color and are looking for a room darkening option, we suggest Redi Shade Paper Room Darkening Window Shades which are gray, or Redi Shade Fabric White Light Blocking Window Shade.
Thank you for your interest in this product.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful find ! I was searching for a way to sleep during the day. Ran across these. I bought the grey and absolutely love them. They are listed as "temporary" but these will last a while. It has made a huge difference, better than any of the darkening vinyl mini blinds. I may buy the black for complete black out..There have been comments about not sticking. I stuck them with the tape, to the top of the overhang ledge and then, put thumbtacks in...solved the problem and they are not visible. They are stylish and if in doubt, try them: you won't be disappointed. September 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good Very good product Easy to use, no installation required. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fantastic item needed something quick and easy to put on windows in new house until I order permanent window treatments. these look nice and block out light and took about a half a second to put up. perfect. they look so nice - I might keep them up permanently in the spare room October 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Significant temperature drop I use blackout shades in some rooms for the summer, and gray in other rooms. The blackout shades result in a completely darkened room with significant temperature difference. How much of a difference, I do not know, but the blackout rooms feel significantly cooler than the rooms with the gray shades. Waking up in the middle of the night can be disorienting with the blackout shades, so I suggest the windows receiving the most sun be completely covered by the shades, and leaving one shade with a few inches crimped to allow street light in for when you wake at night to use the bathroom. If you live in a rural area without street lights, have a light switch or lamp close by to direct you. The shades come accordion-folded, and if you find that they are bouncing back up, simply keep them in place by tacking them to the window sill. The top of the shades have a stick-grip, but I never use it, as I place these in the windows only for the summer and remove them in Fall. I attach them to the top with tacks as well, and they are further covered by permanent vinyl blinds. I use these year after year and store them properly, by folding them back into accordion, labeling them (floor, room) and then storing them lying flat on a closet shelf. This helps them keep their shape and results in less tears, but any tears that do occur can be fixed with scotch tape, masking tape or duct tape. Stored properly, they last at least a few years. (Not sure how long they last with year-round use, they might lose effectiveness if permanently placed in windows. If you choose to use them permanently, post a question and ask someone who is using them permanently.) Each shade comes with 2 clips (white clips with the gray and black clips with the black shades) so you can adjust them from the bottom at any time to allow in light and for air circulation. You can also cut the shades to any length and width desired. If you want to allow some light into a room, such as in a kitchen, choose the gray shades. These are a good solution for blocking summer sun, but why hasn't anyone made permanent vinyl blackout blinds?! It would be so much easier to just swap out permanent blinds. In the meantime, these are a good solution. Peeved that these are only available in stores and not for purchase online via Home Depot, but you can find them at other websites for shipping, and in larger quantity at a discount.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase These blinds are very easy to install (took about 5 minutes to cut to size and then peel and stick them onto the window frame) and do a great job of blocking light, especially for the extra low price tag! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a quick and easy fix without spending an arm and a leg to do it. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Finally...something that works, is affordable AND visually appealing! These have been a life changer! I have been doing shift work for over 12 years and I have never found an affordable, effective, yet visually pleasing and convenient option to darken my room for daytime sleep. I've used roller shades, mini-blinds, curtains, room darkening curtain panels, cardboard, blankets, you name it. I've found that the most effective method to block light (cardboard and blankets) is the most hideous to look at. The more visually pleasing options (blinds, shades) inevitably allow glaring rays of light in that always seem to find my face. The past few years, I’ve let the visually pleasing factor outweigh the effectiveness factor, but I finally got tired of it. So, I went on the search for a solution and came across these shades on several different sites. These shades are paper and marketed as being “temporary”. They are essentially a really long piece of pleated, thick, black construction paper with a tape strip on the top that is used to affix it to your window frame. There is no roller or pull cord mechanism, as they are simply folded up/down to the desired level and then held in place by two black clips (they are included and are much like chip-clips). You install them by simply measuring your window opening and cutting the shade with a razor-edge blade, such as a box cutter. The shade is pliable enough I just held it up into to the opening, bending the excess portion of the shade outward, and then marked my cut with a white crayon. I used a straight edge to hold my place, and then with several swipes of the blade, they were cut to size. Remove the strip that covers the adhesive and then you’re ready to stick it in place. I attached mine to the metal portion of the inside of the window pane. I removed my blinds, however that wasn’t necessary. These shades would have fit just fine behind them. It took a total of 20 minutes to cut and install 3 shades. Now, I will say that part of the reason these work so well for me is due to my color schemes. My bedroom is full of gray, purple and black. So the black shades showing act as an accent to all of that. Had it not been, I would have probably left my blinds up, so the shades wouldn’t be visible from the inside. The exterior of my house has gray siding with black shutters, so from the outside it looks like I have black roman shades that go with my exterior colors as well. With regard to the light blocking ability, I have to say I’m impressed. I have one single window on one wall and a double window on another wall. There isn’t a glimmer of light visible through my single window. There is a slight amount of light getting through in the middle portion of my double window, however I do have curtains and when they’re closed; they seem to trap most of the residual light. I can’t speak of the longevity of the shade just yet, but I’ll post an update if needed. However, for the job these do and the price (about $6 each), I wouldn’t even mind if I had to reinforce the tape or replace them every once in a while. See the attached photos for further details. These photos were taken minutes apart, during a sunny St. Louis afternoon around 4pm. I had no lights on in the home and no flash on the camera. August 2, 2014
