Abstract:
Apparatus for cordless operation of blinds and shades (10). A pair of actuators (14, 15) are in spiral engagement with a spiral wand (13) coupled to a rail mechanism (11) from which the blinds or shades (10) depend. Each actuator (14, 15) is biased into driving engagement with the wand (13), one of the actuators (14, 15) rotating the wand (13) in one direction when raised or lowered and the other actuator (14, 15) rotating the wand (13) in the opposite direction when raised or lowered.
