I ended up making two fancy adapters that connected to the motor and matched them to the 2.100" i/d profile of the tube. Also, the motor easily powers the 105" screen on the 2.25" tube. Thanks to you and rollertrol for all the help I received; awesome support, and I will do business again. Thanks again, Iain."

  • "We recently completed a remodel of our living room, and we used Rollertrol motors in a pretty fun way that I thought you might appreciate. After about two years of trying to figure out how I was going to make it all work, I came across your product online, and was amazed how well it worked for our application. The simplicity of the design, and the functionality made your motor the perfect way to accomplish what I had in mind. I particularly appreciate the ease of setting the limits. Even the speed at which the motor operates is perfection!

We got them up no problems – they fit the windows perfectly and the motors and remotes were simple to set up – worked exactly as your instructions said they would. I would like to thank you for your fantastic support – without you pro-actively following up on this I doubt I would have had them in time. As it is, we were all installed Saturday 11th - in time for my renter arriving tomorrow. Thank you and best regards"

    - MG, Kowloon, Hong Kong
  • "Adrian: I thought you might appreciate a note on how well your motors integrate when changing a new (2013 model) Velux skylight from manual venting to electric. Four screws removed and the Velux manual chain drive is out. Four screws in and your motor is mounted. Then, the plastic housing from Velux (previously removed to access the Velux chain mechanism) can be trimmed about one inch in the middle (to extend the length of the slot where Velux has their chain rise up) and the plastic housing fits nicely over your motor. That, combined with the screen, gives a pretty good closing for bugs. A little more creative work is needed between the Velux screen and the housing, but it fits well."

    - GR, Clermont, Florida, USA
  • "I have an ongoing remodel project that includes motorized patio shades mounted in a concealed pocket and to be remote controlled. My first contact with RolorTrol was a reply from Adrian. My project could not have gone more smoothly with the careful and thoughtful guidance from him. RolorTrol should pat themselves on the back in their perfect selection of a person to fill the job of Customer Service. Lest I not slight RolorTrol, their shipment was timely, they kept me posted on the progress of the order and the motors Adrian steered me to were perfect for my application. Could not recommend Adrian and MotorTrol more highly."
    - JH, Hot Springs, Arkansas, USA
  • "Thanks, Adrian. I really appreciate all the tutorials you set up - they helped me a ton getting everything set up today ... everything is working beautifully."
    - JW, Los Angeles, California, USA
  • "I helped my son install your blinds motors a few years ago. I was very impressed. I saved quite a bit by purchasing your skylight motors and controls for use with three Velux manual venting skylights. Including the interface to our Insteon home automation, the net saving for three 21x26 skylights should be about well over $1000.00."

  • "I bought four 74" blackout shades from Home Depot. They were Bali cut to length shades which they trim for you. One end is easily pried off. The end with the spring motor succumbed to being placed in a vice, and a fair bit of wiggling. The cardboard tube is 1" in diameter. However, the wall thickness is 1/4" making it necessary to ream out the wall to 3/4". I did this with a long 3/4" bit that is used for drilling the holes in joists for electrical wire installations and retrofits. I put the bit into the same vice and reamed out the cardboard tube by rotating the tube and shade while pushing it into the drill bit. A little bit of work, but not too hard to do. I have not tried putting the drill bit into a drill yet - but I suspect that will be a lot easier. I just know that the manual method will work. So the next thing is to insert the motors when they arrive, put up the brackets and shades, and wire the whole thing up. The cost for the 4 shades was $211.48 plus tax. And my order with your company was $359.00 for 4 non-radio motors, a 5 amp power supply and your least expensive RF controller. Total: $570.48. Blinds.com charges $2039.00 plus tax for the same result."
