This innovation from Hunter Douglas makes it easier than it used to be to adjust rails on your shades. There are things to consider though. You can over turn the mechanism. If you over-tighten the bottom rail you can raise the shade too much, causing the bottom rail to no longer be in its proper place at the bottom of the window. You can also over-loosen the mechanism causing the cord to be pulled out of it. You DO NOT want this to happen! It can be restrung, but it is a hassle. Is really like this innovation by Hunter Douglas to allow you to adjust rails on their shades.
