Day / Night shades can be a problem to lift and lower, in part, because the area for your fingers is quite small. We came across Shade Handles at our local RV shop that are designed to assist in raising and lowering the day / night shades. Each set comes with four handles and 8 screws. We first measured where normally placed our hands to raise the shades, then predrilled two holes for each handle. In our case, the night shade handle had to be installed upside down because of the curvature of the shade's Aluminum grips. The day shade handles were placed 3.5 inches outside the night shade handles to insure plenty of space between the handles. Once the handles were secured with the screws, raising the shades was considerably easier than without the handles.
