Need replacement curtain rods for my Campster

This one shown is intact but several others are broken off at the ends of the rods. I don't know what these are called to search for them or whether they are still made. Any help is welcome.

That's going to be really tough to find. If it were mine, I'd just drill a hole in the end of it, replace that brass nub with a screw, and call it fixed.

Not a bad idea... I could use wooden dowels and just add screws at the end to fit the bracket. But I found out they are called sash rods and have found them, just not (yet) in the right diameter. I need to go out and verify the diameter and length.

Yeah that would do it Mike. Even a screw into a piece of dowel inserted into the rod ends. If not here is a thread that shows other styles that Bobbie might have to switch to.
Curtain Rod Brackets...I need suggestions

A lot of stores have these kinds of rods, usually meant for shears.

I think just wood dowels, with screws, will work great. I can match the screw head size to the existing cap.

That would do it. Maybe even go with a slightly larger diameter and cut a slot near the end to match the hanger.

You shouldn't have any difficulty buying new rods such as those. Any drapery store will have them and maybe even Walmart or Home Depot.

I did find similar ones a few places but it is unclear whether they'd fit or not. Brackets look the same but caps don't. But Ace supposedly has them in a smaller size so I'm going to look (they're local) and see if they would work before ordering.

The end item on a curtain rod is called a "final" probably spelled differently. It is the decorative piece on the end of curtain rods, lamps and ceiling light fixtures.

Hey Bobbie Mayer:

I need to find some of those brackets with curtain rod holders so I can hang curtains in my Casita. Your 3rd photo shows the entire unit I need for all my windows. Where can I get sets of these screw-on the window frame rod brackets?

My guess is those were custom made by someone.

I did find a rod that might work but haven't tried it yet.

Let us know how it works out, as we are looking for the same. I figured walmart would have something that would work.

thanks~!

The cafe rods from Ace worked- they had the longer ones in the store- they do not seem as secure a connection with the newer design, but since they work I'll live with them.
