New Ziptrak® Centre Release lock

Stan Bond is proud to release the NEW Ziptrak® Centre release lock. The new Centre release lock allows you to easily lift the blind from the centre without needing to unlock the clips on each side.

The new central lock release mechanism is mounted inside the recess of the Ziptrak® bottom rail, and it consists of a handle which will retract a locking tongue on each end of the bottom rail by pulling it in the up direction, the locking tongues retraction will allow the bottom bar guide to move pass a mechanical stop mounted on the face of the Ziptrak® bracket channel.

The pulling of the handle up can be done by hand, or by using a pull stick, which eliminates the need to bend down in order to reach the handle. By pushing the bottom rail down to its locking position the shape of the mechanical stops on the Ziptrak bracket channels will cause the locking tongues to retract, and spring out again at the locking position automatically. The operating handle of the new locking release mechanism can be mounted in an offset to the centre position to overcome obstacles.

In the near future, we will announce the development completion of an optional reverse handle to release the lock from both sides of the blinds, and special mechanical stoppers for face fix installations.

Customer Reviews


I had three sets of day-night blinds installed and a Veri-shade. Very happy with the total experience from Stan Bond. Professional advice, personal assistance, on time, easy to deal with. I benefited from the suggestions and care taken by each staff member. The blinds and shade look lovely and perform exactly as I had hoped.

It is so rare these days that a company offers such wonderful service and quality of product. From the very start to the very end, nothing short of pure excellence. Jenny was amazing with her suggestions and ideas, her patience very much appreciated and her ability to get the job done within limited timescales very much appreciated. This is my second experience with this company, internal shutters and curtains to go to complete my home and I will not even bother to get quotes elsewhere. Thank you Jenny, and all the team at Stan Bond - don't ever close your doors please!

We found Stan Bond to have really friendly, knowledgeable staff, they were reasonably priced, had fast turnaround and the installer was efficient and cleaned up after himself and was of minimal disruption to our office staff who were all working throughout the installation process. Very happy with the service, we would definitely use again.
