This is an adapter to attach a Futaba S3003 servo to the hexagonal shaft of a blind. The blind is from Home Depot called "Cut-to-Width Faux Wood Blind". This should work on a variety of blinds though. You will need to cut off the mounting holes of the servo on one side to get it to fit into the channel. I am using a NodeMCU to control it.

that's exactly what I am looking for to turn our blinds at home.
we have exactly the same blinds and I only got the blue little servo motor, will that be enough power to turn the blind?
I am heading to the blog page for more detail

Sorry for the late reply! I'm not sure if you tried it already but those small blue servos don't seem to have strong gears and tend to break easily. It would also depend on the size of the blinds themselves. I have been using the Futaba S3003, it's cheap and it's solid.
