The metal brackets used with Heavy-Duty Curtain Rods and Decorative Traverse Rods aren’t decorative, that’s for sure. But, most include a plastic bracket cover. And, the bracket cover can be painted your wall color so it blends in. The bracket covers simply snap over the metal hardware.
You don’t have to worry about how many brackets to buy
because we’ll always include the appropriate number for your
width, rod and drapery style automatically.
And, you have a great deal of flexibility with bracket placement. Brackets for Heavy-Duty Curtain Rods and Decorative Traverse Rods can be positioned anywhere along the track. You do need to position one as close to the end as possible since there will be more weight where your drapery stacks.
No, we’re not trying to be cheapskates, we just don’t want your treatment to fall down because we sent you the wrong type of screw for your mounting surface. You need wood screws if installing into studs, the properly certified and weight tested hollow-wall anchor (not those plastic push-in ones) for drywall, masonry screws and toggles for block, etc. Visit your local hardware store to find the right screw for your mounting surface.
You really can’t skimp on brackets. And, the base of the bracket is shaped to provide maximum strength and stability. So, you can’t modify them without weakening your treatment. If you can’t remove the trim from the window, then you’ll have to switch to ceiling mount. Modifying the brackets, or using fewer brackets than recommended is not an option.
