Finger pull for mini blinds?

I like the new type of mini blinds that adjust up & down as well as open/close just by lifting the bottom rail. No cords & no stick. But I have one window where the blind goes behind a radio that makes it difficult to keep a grip on the bottom rail. I thought a snap-on finger pull would be an obvious accessory but I can't find any in stores or online.

Is there such a thing? Maybe I'm searching for the wrong name product?

While accessories are harder to find these days, they're called "Shade Pulls". If you search for that, a lot of sites come up. I've also seen them at Lowes.

@Shadeladie: Using that name all I got were hundreds of hits to window *shade* tassles, pulls, protectors, etc. Nothing at all for miniblinds.

I'm not too familiar with mini blind pulls. I'm not sure there is anything specially made for them. Would any of these work?

Blind handles

Much closer to what I envisioned. I pictured a brass hook finger pull like what used to be on library card catalogs, but that snapped or adhesive-mounted to the bottom of the miniblind rail.

Well if this is just something you're envisioning and haven't actually seen, then I'm going to guess there is no such thing. Maybe an invention is in order?
