The most popular kind of patio blinds is the vertical variety. Vertical blinds work two ways. First, they can be opened and closed by twisting an attached plastic stick. This controls the amount of light and visibility allowed into the home. Second, they are usually on a track that allowed the blinds to be slid into place on one side of the door. This is so that the patio door can be opened and closed without fear of damaging the blinds. Most people prefer this type of blind because of its ease of use and affordability.
Tilt Control. This allows you to control the tilting function. Connected to the tilt control is a long rod that lets the blind be titled open or shut out. When tilted open, the blinds will reveal the gaps between the slats and when shut out, it offers total privacy.
First and foremost, probably one of the most important blind accessories is a cleat or a cord holdfast. A cleat can be a plastic or metal object with two projecting horns to which cords may be fastened by winding the cord around the horns, to keep them from slipping. A cord holdfast as the name depicts is used to hold the cords "fast" by winding the cord around a peg which is normally angled at about 45 degrees. So that when a blind, for example a venetian blind, is pulled up, the cords can be secured to the cleat or holdfast to prevent the blind from coming down.
Slats. This part is pretty self explanatory. The slats are the parts of the blind that run either vertically or horizontally depending on your type of window blind. Slats are also made from various materials like wood, fabric, bamboo, vinyl or aluminum. Groovers. These are used exclusively with fabric blinds to cover and protect the fabric. Usually when groovers are not used, weights are at the bottom of the fabric slat.
