Attaching your drapery or sheers to rod

Attaching your drapery or sheers to rod is simple!

We have several ways to attach your drapery or sheers to our bendable rods, such as a drapery pin, drapery clamp, pleat hook, pear hook and adjustable hook. Order an equal amount of hooks as you would rollers; we recommend 4 rollers per foot of rod. The only exception is a shower curtain, which will normally have less per foot of rod. For a shower curtain application, outdoor drapery or any drapery with grommets, you would use the pear hooks with the grommets. Order the same number of pear hooks as you have grommets. Each option is explained below.

Method 1: Use our drapery pin with a pleated curtain. One end of the pin goes into the ring of the roller, the other end of the “S” is to pin through the pleat. Position this pin about 1-3/4″ below the curtain top so that curtain barely touches the ceiling, the rod is therefore covered by the curtain. You can also position the pin higher to allow the rod to be exposed. *Also checkout our valance kit to completely hide the rod.

Method 2: Use hem and trim tape to create the facing then use the above mentioned drapery hook. This will give you a seamless drapery.

Method 3: Use our clamp hook. The clamp portion will hold onto the drapery and the hook goes into the ring of the roller.

Method 4: Use our pleat hook. The pleat hook goes on the back of draperies that are not pleated. Pinch the fabric into the metal prongs to create a pinch pleat drapery look.  The hook goes into the ring of the roller.

Method 5: Use our pear hook. The pear hook is perfect for shower curtains.  The hook opens up to go into the circle bracket of the shower curtain and also connects to the ring of the roller.

Method 6: Use our lengthening hook. Use back side of curtain fabric to wrap around the paper thin portion of the flexible hook, then either stable or sew the piece in position about 1/2″ to 1″ below top of curtain. The hook will allow your curtain height be adjusted to 1-1/2″.

All of these options can be purchased through us. Call today at 317-273-8343 (M-F 9am-5pm EST).

Adjustable HookLengthening Hooks:

 

This is a great way to have your draperies sit in front of the rod when you do not have pleated draperies with a large buckram (our custom draperies do so you don’t need this for ours). This option conceals the bendable rod  and mounting hardware without using a valance. Use on the back side of curtain fabric, 1/2″ below the rim, folding the fabric around the  plastic with arrow hole pointing up and exposing the thick hook channel. Then, sew or staple your fabric into place. The hook is removable by sliding it downward.

Curtain height can be adjusted to max. of 3″. Order an equal amount of hooks as you would rollers; we recommend 4 rollers per foot of rod.
