The Method


Measure the width of the window you're planning to use the track for. Once you've worked out the measurement, connect the track together using the connectors provided in the kit until you've reached your desired length.

Add the track sliders on to the track and secure on the stoppers at either end - this stops the sliders falling off.

Remove the stickers on the back of the track to reveal the adhesive strip. Install the track above the window and press firmly for approx. 30 seconds. The track is designed so it can be used on either the ceiling or a wall.

Slide the pleat hooks onto the tape heading of your curtains. These should be placed each at an equal distance apart.

Things To Keep In Mind

  • Due to the strong adhesive on the curtain track, it may remove some of the paint on your wall/ceiling when removed.
  • The curtain track I used recommends to only hang curtains with a max weight of 11 pounds.
  • The more curtain panels you use/the wider they are, the more fuller the gather will be.
  • The original curtain track kit didn't come with loads of sliders - so I had to purchase additional ones.
  • The adhesive track comes in sections which you connect together. This means the length is easily adjustable. The track can also be cut to size using a saw.
