Does this work for Velux Venetian blinds

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 4.2 out of 5 by 20.

At our commercial office building we have mini blinds that have a large eye for the pull cord and required a pole with a hook on the end. After exhausting our search for the correct poles we gave these a try. The rods are nice and sturdy, and have a good quality hook on them.

My skylight is an older model and the hook would not go into the ring to lower or raise the skylight. My son-in-law had to grind the end off so it would fit into the ring. I was able to get a good sales clerk at Home Depot who had me take the broken old one and liquid weld it. I now have the old one to do the job.!
