I purchased these after seeing something similar at the local hardware store. I am so happy they didn't have what I wanted in stock. I came home went on Overstock and couldn't make up my mind which to buy. These blinds were so easy to put up, 6 windows done in one evening after work. They are easy to pull up and down, lock into place, unlock and let down. They look amazing. I just received more. All my windows will now have them.
