Ceiling Mount Brackets For Decorative Traverse

While your exact style Ceiling Brackets for Decorative Traverse Curtain Rods may arrive unassembled. The cam assembly portion typically attaches to a plate which lowers the rod down from the ceiling far enough to allow a finial or end cap to be attached.

While you may have a little more wiggle-room with this type of bracket, popping a chalk line first is a good idea to make sure the brackets line up properly.

Slotted Direct Ceiling Mount Drapery Rod

Slotted Direct Ceiling Mount Track installs directly to the ceiling. This type of track doesn’t come with brackets, screws or any other type of mounting hardware.

It’s super easy to install; just screw the track into the ceiling using the proper screw for your mounting surface. We suggest using wood screws and screwing into ceiling joists.

Splices For Multi-Part Rods

Once the brackets are installed, if your rod has been made in sections and includes either an internal or external splice, install the splice before lifting the rod onto the brackets. It’s important to remember that splices don’t provide strength or stability. Splices simply keep the two rod sections from working apart over time. You should always position a bracket as close as possible to the splice to provide support.

Most splices are external and snap into the rod from above, just like the cam assembly. Internal splices fit within the track channel.
