What are the dimensions of the complete outside measurement and what is the dimension of the flange which fits in the opening. Also what is the height of the accessory tray? Also does this accessory come complete with the pick and click brackets to mount a solar 2246 skylight shade? Is a installation manual available showing the dimension?

Answer: 
If you have built the curb for the skylight to the dimensions specified by Velux for the skylight, which I think is about 49 1/2" x 25 1/2" for the 2246 skylight, then the assembled frame will fit precisely over the outer edge of the skylight curb. It comes complete with the pick and click tabs.

First, you should see a link towards the bottom of the web page that says "downloadable PDFs." This should get you what you need in regards to installation.
Second, your question requires a two-fold answer. If you order a FCM skylight with a blind "factory-installed," then the accessory tray comes pre-assembled with the blind installed. If you order the accessory tray by itself, then you will have to put it together. It does come as 4 pieces and the pick-and-click brackets are pre-installed. The accessory tray is designed to sit down on the curb and "hang" inside the opening. It becomes like a skylight frame. The accessory tray, therefore, requires a certain inside dimension for it to fit down into. We would be glad to supply you with our accessory tray minimum dimensions chart if you call us at 800-888-3589. We can also answer any other questions you may have.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to assemble and install frame for Velux blinds We installed three Velux 2246 fixed curb mount skylights during a re-roofing project a while ago. Now the summer has come, we decided to fit the Velux blackout blinds to see if we can cool the room a little more. As part of buying the blackout blinds, Velux recommends these accessory trays (better described as blind frames) are also bought and I have to say that, having done this project, you probably couldn't install a Velux black out blind without one. The frame kit is very easy to assemble and install. It is basically a plastic frame that drops into the existing curb mount skylight hole to which the blind attaches. Assembling the frame is very easy and takes about 5 mins with the aid of a power screwdriver. To install the frame, you head up on the roof and unscrew the skylight glass from the curb. This has about 10 Philips screws and takes a couple of minutes with a power screwdriver. You then take the included foam self adhesive seal/gasket and apply it to the top of the curb mount, trimming off the excess using a pair of scissors or a sharp craft knife. Once the foam gasket is in place, you drop the assembled accessory tray/frame onto the top of the gasket, line it up and re-install the skylight glass. The only thing you have to remember when installing the accessory tray/frame is which end of the frame you want the blinds to be located at as only one end of the frame has the locating clips for the blind. We have two skylights side by side so I had to remember to make sure both frames had the blind location lugs at the same end of the skylight. Once the accessory tray/frame is in place, installing the blind is simple and takes about 15 minutes. We installed two of these and it took me about an hour to figure out what to do (the instructions are pictorial, not written), remove the skylights, apply the seals, line up the frame and re-attach the skylight. One note is that we made the skylight curb from 2 x 8 lumber to the size recommended by Velux. The assembled size of the accessory tray/frame is slightly smaller than the finished size of the curb and you will have a 3/8" to 1/2" gap to fill (with a filler strip or similar that this kit doesn't include) to fill the gap between the interior of the wooden curb and this plastic blind frame. The acessory tray frame includes a pre-fitted white rubber gasket to ensure that this gap can be filled with a snug fit to whatever filler material is used. The only cons in the whole process was that the frame itself was dusty from the plastic dust that had been created when the frame was cut at the factory and its pretty expensive for what is basically a simple white plastic frame. I would also recommend wiping clean the interior of the skylight glass before it is refitted as the plastic tray/frame will make it impossible to clean to the very edges of the skylight glass on the inside.
