I have made many roman blinds in the past but always used a cleat. Thought this would simplify operation of the shade and be neater.

I'm making Roman shades and needed a device for locking the cord in place when raising the blind.
J G on Jul 21, 2017
These are the kind I always use on Roman shades. I'm not a beginner, I've only used these types of cord locks. I operate a drapery workroom. Glad I found your site.

The locks are more convenient than using cleats to hold the shade open.
BONNIE C on Jul 16, 2017
I was happy to find cord locks at a reasonable price.
They offer a more professional look and are handier to use.

making roman shades. these are far cheaper than other cord locks online. Hope they work well.

I am going to make roman shades and couldn't find the cord shade locks anywhere in my town or that weren't outrageously expensive on line. These are reasonably priced.
JUDY S on Jun 27, 2017
I have previously made a roman shade for my kitchen window and didn't use this lock which was a pain trying to lock it.. I am making another one and I need this since we use this window a lot.

How do the 3 cords feed through the 3 cord shade lock?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thru trial and error, my husband and I took a large paper clip and made a small hook on one end-could also use a small crochet hook, etc. On the body of the lock one side is "angled"--your three cords MUST enter from the straight side and exit from the angled sideabout six inches. Then tip slightly forward the lock to move the brass roller forward and with your hook pull the 1st cord down between the brass roller and the white roller thru the 1st channel. Pull the remaining cords thru making sure each pulled cord is between each space/channel on the lock--there should only be one cord thru each space. We found it easier to thread before installing on the frame. I hope this isn't confusing--once you do one it will make sense--good luck!
How does cord shade lock work?
A shopper on Feb 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's the same mechanism that's used on mini blinds. Pull the cord one direction (either left or right, I forget which!) to release it and lower the shade. Pull it the opposite direction after raising the shade to lock it. The last couple steps of this Roman shade tutorial will show you how to install this cord lock:
