Pole to Skylight operator connection

A home owner from seattle says:
Hello,
I am looking for the parts that would let me connect the pole shown in picture 1 and the Skylight Operator, Angle Drive in picture 2. I have been trying to do that for years.
It would be great if you had some ideas.
Regards,
Yves

Thanks for contacting us! Please take a look at our 39-214 Metal Hook, 39-247 Eyelet Adapter, and our 39-336 Universal Joint with Pole Ring. You may be able to adapt one of these parts to work with your pole.

Thanks for the quick reply. It looks like there is no standard part for the pole connection, I will need to customize something with the parts you mentioned. One thing also that bugs me is that I cannot get the cover of the box (picture 2)to sit squarely on the frame of the box. Somehow, no matter what I try , I cannot close it nicely. I am assuming it has to do with the chain and the wheel inside but I have not been able to figure it out. Anyway, I'll order the par you mentioned in a few days. I appreciate your input.
Regards
Yves

Thanks for getting back to us! I hope you can work something out. As for the cover, I'm not quite sure what the problem could be. It definitely sounds like some internal mechanism is sticking out, even if just by a tiny fraction. Have you removed the cover entirely to see what the problem may be?
