How do I get these outdoor shades to go up?

I moved into a rental house with outdoor shades on the windows that only have a spoke like mechanism at the top to open the shades that necessitates getting on a ladder and manually rolling it up or pulling it down. There is no pull mechanism. Is there a special tool for turning this thing? It is a major hassle so I have just left them down to keep the sun out...but with fall here I would really like to get the shades up without the ladder. See the photo please. I've never seen a shade like this.
