Installing Poles

Step 01: Cutting poles to size

Curtains LESS than 2.4m wide

  1. Mark the total width of your curtains (or pair of curtains) on your pole
  2. Mark the total width of your curtain width on your pole(both curtains if you have a pair)
  3. Cut your pole down to size with a hacksaw
    Curtains MORE than 2.4m wide
  4. Your pole will arrive in 2 pieces
  5. Divide the total width of your curtains by 2
  6. Mark 1/2 your total curtain width on each pole
  7. Cut each pole down to size

Step 02: Installing your brackets

  1. Measure the length of your curtains from the floor and mark the installation height.
  2. Hold the bracket against the wall so that the top hole is in line with your installation height. Mark your drill holes.
  3. Carefully drill your holes
  • Brick walls: Use a 5.5mm masonry drill bit, and insert rawl plugs
  • Plasterboard walls: Use an ordinary 5.5mm drill bit and insert rawl plugs
  • Wood frames: Use an ordinary 2mm drill bit to create a pilot hole
    For poles over 2m make sure that you mount the centre bracket so that the pole sits level with the side brackets.

Step 03: Mounting your poles

  1. Place the pole ends on the cup of each side bracket and slide them into the pole. Only the pole end should rest on the bracket, not the pole.
