Cordless & Skylight Pole Ends

Posted on: October 1, 2011

Some windows are just out of reach – and because of that, we sell telescopic poles with specially designed ends to raise and lower your Cellular Shades without difficulty.

There are two types of Poles we carry– because of the types of shades CellularWindowShades offers:

This Balconly Skylight Pole is used with our Cellular “Balcony” Skylight Shade (termed “Balcony” as part of the Symphony Shades line of “classical” music allusions).

The cork screw is the portion of the pole end that fits on a “standard” pole — these are variously sold as painter’s poles, pool cleaning poles, extension poles, etc.

The “finger” portion (with the fitted plastic cap) is what grasps the HANDLE present on the bottom of the Skylight Shade (see the shade illustration, below).

The “finger” can grasp the handle for an easy pull down, or it can be fitted under the handle to give the shade a push up. The plastic tip protects the shade’s handle & bottom rail from scratches.


The other pole is made specifically for our Cordless Shades. These shades have a clear, hard-plastic handle with a large flat surface, and a small hole in its middle area (see below):

The Pole End for the Cordless Shade is a bit of a queer bird – with a “beak” at one end (which fits the hole in the handle for en easy pull-down) and “wings” at the back end, which support the bottom rail of the shade when raising the shade. The picture below shows the shade being pulled down.

 The same Cordless Pole End can be used to raise / lower the  upper portion of a Cordless Top Down Bottom Up shade. Here is a top being raised:

If you are shopping for POLES — keep in mind our poles each INCLUDE one Pole End! If you order the “Cordless Pole” or “Skylight Pole” the entire pole, with its specified end, is what will arrive at your door. No need to order the two separately.

Poles come in two models: one extends to 6-feet; the other extends to 12-feet.

Should you have questions on these products, let us know! That’s what our Service Team is here for, to help you.
