About Crank Blinds

Crank & Clip Blinds are most commonly installed from a roof (house eave or patio) to the fence – hence the reason they are sometimes referred to as a Roof to Fence Blind. Whilst they are a more basic design and operation than the Ziptrak® Outdoor Blinds they definitely do have their purpose. They can be used in multi-purpose situations and fixed on (nearly) any angle which gives the user flexibility to have the blind as a straight drop blind or relocated into the roof to fence position. They provide protection from UV rays, rainfall and help to prevent wind, leaves, dust etc from entering your outdoor entertaining area – also commonly used to provide privacy.

The blinds are easily retractable and have the potential to protect spaces, furniture and plants from the harmful effects of weather. Crank blinds by Outdoor Blinds Perth are our most value for money product. We utilize the finest quality materials.

Caring For Your Outdoor Blinds

Maintenance is the only key to a clean and enduring Blind.


To apply, lower the blind all the way and apply the spray in the groove between the spline and the track. Do this for the front of the blind only, on both the left and right sides. After lubrication, open and close the blind several times.


Do not use window cleaning detergents to clean the PVC. Clean the blind with Swiftee® outdoor blind cleaner. Do not allow dirt or stains to remain on the PVC for long periods of time.

After Installation

You may need to leave the blinds down for several days to allow the material to settle.
