Hi alewater, 1. Cut the bottom keyhole off the bracket and use top hole only - you may find the batten is only stuck to the wall so you will have to screw into the wall below. 2. Buy a different bracket. 3. Remove the batten and buy some paint. Regards S
Hi alewater, Very likely that you have steel lintels above the window opening so you will have to screw into these. Once you have drilled a pilot hole in the steel any hardened steel wood screw should be ok. Regards S
