3. Hammer
4. Drill with a screw attachment
5. Tape measure

You may need the help of an electrician at this point. Using a drill, fix the head box to the wall and screw in tightly using the screw attachment of your drill.
Step three
Feed the curtain from the head box through the guide legs and pull the roller shutter shut. Then fix the lock onto the roller shutter with the instructions provided. Finally you need to fill the sides of the guide with silicone to secure it into place.
Step four
