Product Overview

The ZXT 200 control rod is used to operate out-of-reach VELUX manual skylight blinds. Move your blinds up or down to the desired position on the glass to adjust incoming light.

  • Consider upgrading to a solar powered blind which is eligible for a 30% federal solar tax credit and operated by remote control
  • Hook is shaped like a 7, so it is referred to as the 7-hook control rod
  • Not designed to work with VELUX venetian blinds
  • Telescopic rod collapses the control rod into a smaller size for easier storage

I just had two skylights with pre-installed manual venetian blinds installed. The description on the home depot website says that the ZXT200 is not compatible with manual venetian blinds. But on the Velux website, PAC/PAD/PAH Manual says that zxt200 is what I need. Is the home depot description wrong?

4 - 6 ft. Telescoping 7-Hook Control Rod for Manually Operated Skylight Blinds is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 4 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from Contractor installed and it looks good and I love the blind!! Contractor installed and it looks good and I love the blind!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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 3 out of 5 by from Best value found It was really easy to assemble and to operate. Package was not so good.
Date published: 2016-06-21
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.
