How do I extend this rod? It came collapsed and no amount of pulling or twisting will extend this. Instructions???????

There should be a button that pushes in to release the rod and pull it out. I have noted that on mine if you drop it on the end the button will deform and then will be unable to be pushed in.

Hi Birdy. The 7 hook control rod will work on your skylight blind/shade or any VELUX manually operable shades manufactured from 2010-present day that are installed in our FS or FCM model skylights. This control rod was specifically made for that purpose.

How do you connect these two? The end that has the hook has a cover we find hard to remove.

Can this work on cordless top down blinds on tall windows (To move the "top" part of the blinds up and down)?

I don't know about that. I bought mine to raise and lower my cellular shades in a skylight. The cellular shades have a metal piece with a hole in it that the hook on the rod slides into. If your blinds have the metal piece with a hole for a hook, it should work.

Answer

I don't believe our Rod will work on a Hunter Douglas Shade. Our hook is in the shape of a 7. In looking at photos of the Applause Honeycomb Shade, it appears to have something that you would grip with your fingers. I did not see an opening of any kind that would accept our 7 hook system. I hope this is helpful. Thank you for choosing VELUX!

I needed an extra long rod for the blinds in my stairwell. This is not the ticket. You cant tell from the photo or the description, but the hook end of this thing is gigantic. Unless you live in a giants mansion up in the clouds, it will not fit your blinds.

You can add extension pieces to make this control rod longer. The ZCT 100 will add an additional 3 feet to your current rod and you can multiple extensions if needed. The "7" hook control rod will operate manual VELUX shades produced from 2010-present day. If you have a VELUX shade manufactured before this time period, you will need a different control rod called ZCT 300. Please contact VELUX directly if you need additional assistance.
Enhances the kitchen-screen removal
Customer review from veluxusa.com logo
I,ve had a velux skylight in the kitchen for 8 years now and love it! I also have a bug screen installed which I have been trying to remove for cleaning but have had no luck. There are 2 tabs at the bottom which I can unlatch from the screen but still cannot remove the screen. Before I break it I would like to throw this question out in hopes of getting a reply. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Boston, MA
hand crank chain stuck
Customer review from veluxusa.com logo
I like my Velux skylights, but yesterday I tried to close one of them and found that it would not close all the way. I have a hand crank and can't find any instructions online on how to fix what looks like might be a very easy thing to do. It appears the chain won't go into the base. (2 years old)
