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

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Silvia A little overpriced for a simple rod
It is just a telescopic rod with a hook-like end. A handy person can probably assemble one with stuff you have around the house for a fraction of the cost. This one looks sturdy and does the job though.
