Cord retractor for window blinds Patent #: 5553653
AbstractAn improved controller for opening and closing a venetian blind vanes over a door or window opening. A pull cord is engaged with a pulley, which is moved with a loop cord selectively engaged with a cord lock attached to a handle. A rotatable switch in the cord lock is rotated, the cord lock grasps the loop cord, and the handle is moved downwardly to pull to loop cord. Such movement operates the pulley and pull cord to raise the blind vanes. When the cord lock is disengaged, the weight of the blind returns the components to the original position. A rotatable tilt switch or combination of rotatable tilt switches are attached to a tilt rod for selectively rotating the blind vanes. All cords are completely enclosed so that looped ends of the cords are not accessible to persons adjacent the window blind.
