Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1234ken Telescoping Pole
The caveat here is that the pole is not very useful for pushing the blind back up since there is no way to insert the hook for that operation. Also the hook is rather large and it can be difficult to place the hook in the blind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Annie Great price, does the job
Just what I needed. A simple pole to open the skylight that's just a little out of my reach. Don't know why others I found are so much more expensive. This one's lightweight but seems strong enough to do the job and should last.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Zip WORTH THE MONEY IF JUST FOR THE EASE OF IT
We bought this item after reading some of the reviews. You could easily make something comparable but I guarantee it won't work as smooth as this one and you could end up damaging your blinds trying to save a few bucks. If you have blinds that are more than 10 feet up you may want to get the extension for this item. It has a locking button to set the adjustment in 1 foot increments. Overall a very easy to use and convenient time to have when you want to open and close your Skylight Blinds.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucy Very functional
Blinds to go and Next day blinds charge over $100.00 for this product. They recommended that I go to Home Depot. Only problem was the blinds' person at Home Depot said I had to buy my blinds there to get the hook. Not so, just ordered it online....so don't try to get at the store directly. Wished I had ordered two....one for each room with skylights. But the rooms are just across the hall, so easy to use in both places.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DRR Super useful!
This telescoping skylight blinds rod saved me money since I did NOT need to purchase a more expensive automatic blind opener/closer. It is easy to use and store. Very pleased.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by S1s2 Very flimsy thin metal. Over priced. But gotta have it.
Not many options out there. I can tilt the blinds with it. But I still have to use a ladder to open the blinds due to the thin metal. It bends like it's going to break!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeanne This rod has the features I need.
The rod meets my requirements:
1--it telescopes enough to reach the skylights
2--it hooks easily into the bracket that opens/shuts the blinds
3--it hooks into the bracket that pushes the blinds up and down
