The blinds should be 2 inches wider than the glass in the window and it should be 2 inches taller than the window to make sure it overlaps the glass. It is possible to install blinds on metal doors with a few materials. To drill the hole, first locate where you want it with a pencil. Then use a center punch with a hammer to tap a small indent right where you want the hole. If you don't have a center punch use a nail. If you don't tap a center mark, your drill will skate right across the surface of the door and scratch the paint. Though a door may limit the way you install your blinds, it's not impossible. You can't use an outside mount since it will restrict the door's movement, and you can't install an inside mount on the door since most doors do not have enough space, but you can install an outside mount-type style on the door itself. Drill the door hole, insert the lens from the inside and the sleeve from the outside, then screw them together for a peephole. For a splinter-free hole through a wood door, use a brad point bit. With metal, fiberglass or composite doors, use a standard bit. When you're drilling into harder material such as sheet metal you need to drill a pilot hole in advance. For thicker metal, it may require more than one screw to drill through the surface. To save time and labor, you can use self-drilling self-tapping screws to drill into metal.

How to Install Blinds on a Metal Door Mount the brackets 2 inches above the window and use a measuring tape for adequate placement. Align one bracket up against the marks you made with one hand and with the other hand, use a drill to attach the brackets with self-tapping screws. Slide the head rail of the blinds into the brackets.

Use a Magnetic Hook If you have a metal door, thumbtacks won't do the trick. However, you can still use the ribbon method with a slight modification. On the back of your door, near the top, place an upside-down magnetic hook such as one of the Bullseye Magnetic Wreath Hooks.

Regular drill bits can't cut through steel, so you need a heavy-duty, hard drill bit to do the job. There are two types of drill bits that you can count on for metalworking projects: titanium and cobalt. Titanium drill bits are high-speed steel drill bits (HSS) that have a titanium oxide coating.

A reverse peephole viewer is exactly what the words sound like: It reverses the effects of a peephole, meaning it allows you to see inside, from the outside. The viewer's lenses reverse the effect of the peephole's convex lenses, and easily fits in your pocket.
