We purchased these to hang on our front porch as we have full afternoon sun. These worked so well, all our neighbors asked where we got them. We live in military housing and have neighbors all over. We are limited to he things we are able to do to the house so these were an excellent option. They come with 3 hooks. Once the hooks are installed, you simply hook the shade on and anchor the rope. We have had them for a while now. The only negative was that birds built nests on the tops of them and began eating away at the sides. We have been very pleased with them as they have provided a good amount of shade (and few degrees cooler on the porch) and more enjoyment a as a family together. Being a military family, that is the most important aspect!!

We had these blinds in another color hanging on our west-side open covered porch for 11 years. Despite being outside year-round through summer heat, winter snow, and frequent wind, hail and rainstorms, they were still fully functional although a bit bent and faded. We replaced them with these white blinds after changing porch furniture. The new blinds are the same with the exception of an improved pully mechanism which is now metal rather than plastic. Although they were easy to find in stores 11 years ago, Wayfair is the only place I found them this time and it was worth the search. They are incredibly easy to hang. The light weight allows them to move with breezes while blocking the heat of the sun. Much better than traditional slat blinds or heavy roll-up fabric. I lower them every day during the afternoon and they can reduce the temperature on my porch by at least 5 degrees, also reducing the temperature in the room inside the house. These are an incredible bargain in every way and they look fantastic.
EXCELLENT for our outside purposes
MAGGIE from ST. CATHARINES, ON – Verified Buyer
We placed these blinds around the outside of our swimspa/ hot tub which is covered overhead. It keeps the dirt out, blocks sun while still being able to see through them from the inside (ONLY); COMPLETE PRIVACY on the inside... awesome!!! (no more bathing suits needed!) They're cheap enough to replace if they get broken in places by super-heavy winds (but ours took a heavy beating before we need to think about that and will order more of same).
Annoying safety feature
Tiffany from Illinois
There is some sort of mechanism in these blinds that is a child safety feature of some sort and it is just an annoying pain. I have small children and I'm all about safety, but this mechanism makes it nearly impossible to get the blinds up and down. There has to be a better way. It seems like the larger size the blind is the more difficulty it has. If it weren't for that one little problem then I would definitely give it five stars.

Purchased 5 blinds as replacement sun shades for my screen porch. Exact replacement for what I had installed several years ago. Easy to size to fit, cutting the ends with a circular saw when rolled tight. Installed in few minutes, maybe 30 minutes total for the 5 blinds.
Sandra from Cornwall, ON – Verified Buyer
Bought these for our patio. Exactly as shown. Second set, the other lasted over 8 years and hang out rolled up all winter. Good product!
Colin from Geneva, IL – Verified Buyer
We needed these blinds to replace the ancient blinds on our exterior front porch. These matched the old ones so perfectly that I did not even have to change the location of the hooks that they hang on. They seem very well made and I expect that we won't have to order another replacement set for twenty years or so. Hope that you still have them in stock then. Thanks.
Great Price but Damaged
A Morton from Colorado – Verified Buyer
The blinds look great and were easy to hang. I love that they block a lot of the light but that I can still see our mountains through them. They are also the cheapest 96"x72" I could find. I like the material it's made from, you can tell it will do well all-season. They did arrive unopened in plastic wrap and with extra padding around the ends but after removing the plastic I noticed that one of the corners was chewed up (perhaps by a mouse) before it was padded and packaged. Luckily for me it's not visible since it faces out on a second floor deck but it was clear that the company lacks quality control and perhaps mouse traps.
Wow, these are the best!
JC from Cape Coral, FL – Verified Buyer
Bought these for my front screened porch. what a lifesaver. they keep out the hot Florida sun during the day and an added bonus--they keep the rain out too! drops the temperature on the porch area about 10 degrees and my cats couldn't be happier! Pros: great value, easy to assemble, I was able to hang them all by myself with only a few tools
My Oval Roller Blinds
Beverly from Punta Gorda, FL – Verified Buyer
The product came and was exactly what I had expected. The purchase price was half of what other places were asking for the same thing. The shades looked great. They were very simple to hang and serve their purpose very well.
