Specialized Hold Down Pulley and Cord Lock Systems

Designed and available only through Energy Saving Shades, these specialized hold-down pulleys and cord lock systems have been designed to fit all console or sill configurations. Whether the window is behind an angled console, a flat counter, or above a stairwell, the installation team will provide the necessary hold-down hardware to place the control cord at the most convenient angle and location for operation.

And when we say convenient location, we can assure you that each individual shade pull-cord will be routed through a series of pulleys to the best location for practical use. What does that mean? Well, it means that the Air Traffic Controllers won’t have to reach down behind a console for an errant pull-cord. It means that they’ll never have to pull a shade cord from behind a coffee maker, or a microwave, or from around a monitor. It means that they’ll never have to stand in the stairwell to pull down on a shade cord with the cord-lock on the sill above their head.

Every shade will operate smoothly and efficiently with cords running through individual locks, each within easy reach of its operator. Guaranteed!

And we pledge NEVER to use just a simple cord-lock for a hold-down, as occurs quite often with other companies. Take a look in your cab right now. Are there only cord-locks, like the one seen to the left, holding down the shades? If so, BEWARE! Those cord locks were never meant to be used as directional, hold-down pulleys. And if you haven’t already heard the complaints, the cord-locks, along with the cords will rapidly wear out when installed in that manner. We use cord-locks for only one purpose – to lock cords! With our system, all pull-cord re-directions are made by our stainless steel and nylon pulleys, insuring that the shade cord runs straight through the final cord-lock as friction free as possible, as seen above. We’re so confident of our shade’s smooth operation, that we offer free replacement cords for the lifetime of our shades.

So when you’re ready for your next shade replacement, please consider us…
