Up and Down Ropes / louver ropes

Up and Down Ropes
Up and Down Ropes

We always can’t distinguish which one of the ropes of the louver controls the direction we want to control since there aren’t tips on the ropes. Up and down rope can solve this problem. Cone shows the directions clearly. They would point to two directions when the rope becomes curved, so we can easily draw back and shut down the curtains.
