Window Cranks & Blinds

thandlecrank4Windows with cranks have been around for a long time and are still popular today.  One of the reasons is that the casement style windows they open, seal better than sliding windows.  This is great for the function of the window, but what about the function of blinds on a window with a protruding window crank?  For anyone who has these, they probably have encountered this dilemma.  Blinds or shades that flop over a protruding window crank can be dis-functional and ugly.

One remedy for this problem is, installing ‘T’ Crank Handles.  T-handle metal window cranks will give enough leverage to operate the window and are small enough not to get in the way of the blind or shade, unlike other window cranks.thandlecrank3

T-handle’s vary by manufacturer. Fix My Blinds offers t-handles for Truth/Wright windows, Andersen windows, Pella windows, Peachtree windows, and old metal framed windows.  Click here to view them!
