  • Patent number: 8091606
    Abstract: An operating wand has a handle, an upper rod connected by an intermediate rod having one end pivotably attached to the upper end of the handle and the opposite end pivotably attached to the lower end of the upper rod. A sleeve slides along the upper rod between a first position and a second position. When in the first position the sleeve covers a portion of the upper rod, the handle, and the intermediate rod, keeping the handle, intermediate rod and upper rod in a co-linear alignment. When the sleeve is in the second position, the handle and intermediate rod are fully exposed allowing the intermediate rod to be moved relative to the handle and the upper rod so that the intermediate rod is normal to the handle and normal to the upper rod. With the sleeve in the second position the wand can be operated like a crank.

  • Patent number: 7434353
    Abstract: An electric blind includes a frame, a plurality of horizontal slat units, and a stepping motor. The frame has two side vertical rods pivotally connected with the slat units, and a linking rod is fixed with a lengthwise side of all the slat units, possible to force the slat units synchronously swing for an angle. The stepping motor unit is composed of a stepping motor and a controller. The stepping motor is positioned in a cavity of one of the two side vertical rods, connected with a slat of the salt units. Further the controller controls the rotating angle of the motor, and the stepping motor can rotate idle in case the motor should meet an exterior force (for example, in case of the slat units already swung to the largest angle), or the slat units are manually moved any time. Thus the electric blind may not easily be broken or damaged.

  • Publication number: 20080099157
    Abstract: A device for winding a suspension cord of a blind is provided to wind a suspension cord disposed on a blind. The suspension cord is spirally wound about a cord spool through a spiral guide groove of a guide component, and then arranged along the cord spool in sequence. Additionally, when the cord spool is connected to a power resilient element as a power source of rotation, friction force is applied to the cord spool through an adjusting component to adjust the output torque of the cord spool, such that the torque applied to the cord spool by the power resilient element can be balanced out with the torque applied to the cord spool by the gravity of the blind.

  • Patent number: 7302738
    Abstract: A safe disengaging device for the pull cord of a blind includes a male support base and a female support base. The male support base is fixed on the upper frame of a blind and provided with a protruding clasping block having its upper side formed with an engage shoulder. The female support base has its lower end tied with a pull cord and its upper end extending upward to form an elastic member corresponding to the clasping block of the male support base and having its upper free end formed with an engage hook to be engaged on the engage shoulder. When the pull cord is drawn by an excessively great force, the elastic member will be disengaged from the engage block, and the female support base together with the pull cord will fall off, avoiding accidents caused by improper operation of the pull cord and elevating safety in use.
