 Tapestry Install for Bendable Rods

Step 1t

Drill2 and tools

Tools needed: Phillips screwdriver, pliers, tape measure and hacksaw. If using the anchors that come with the kit, a 3/16″ drill bit will also be needed to make a pilot hole.

Anchors are recommended when installing into drywall for walls and ceilings. The anchors included in the kit are for drywall and prevent the screws from sliding out of the wall or ceiling.  Most homes have drywall, it’s made from a plaster sheet that has been sandwiched between paper and became popular in the USA in the 1950’s.

A pilot hole is a small hole drilled before driving a screw or anchor into the wall or ceiling. The hole helps by making installation easier; plus it ensures that the anchor and screw will be installed straight, because it will follow the path of the pilot hole.

Additional materials will be needed if installing in concrete

Prepackaged kit Ceiling Mount Brackets all labeled

 

Open the kit and lay out the pieces. They are labeled for your convenience. If you plan on using a bendable rod for the top and bottom of the tapestry then additional end caps will need to be purchased.

*Note: The pieces pictured on the left are for prepackaged kits (Standard or Medium Duty Kits).

We’re pleased to announce our NEW Bracket Construction for 2015! The plastic ceiling mount brackets AND the plastic one inch wall mount brackets are replaced with metal.  We also updated our wall mount brackets.  Our new ones (shown below) have a sleek design and better construction. They fit flush to the wall and are not as noticeable as the old design. The response has been overwhelming and our customers LOVE the changes!  

We strive to provide great customer service and top notch products!

 

 

2015 Wall Mount Brackets for Bendable Rods

 

Wall mount brackets are sold separately and do not come with the bendable rod kit. There are several sizes to choose from.

Option 1: (1” Projection Wall Bracket)

The 1” projection wall mount bracket does NOT require installing the ceiling mount bracket onto it.

 

Option 2: (1 7/8”, 3”, 5” Projection Wall Brackets)

All of these brackets also require the ceiling mount brackets to be used with the wall brackets.

 

 

Bending rod for straight run

 

Please keep in mind that the bendable rod is shipped coiled. Use caution when uncoiling the rod. Handle with care so the rod doesn’t snap uncontrollably. Gently bend the rod over a chair, pillow or with your hands like the picture on the left. When the rod is bent in the opposite direction than it was coiled then the rod will straighten out.  If a certain curvature is needed then bending the rod in the same direction as it was originally coiled is recommended.
