Thumbs up

Hi there everyone, I was wanting to hang tie backs on the ensolite & purchased some 3M command hooks but they didn't stick too well. What have others used?? Your ideas &/or suggestions would be great!!

Thanks,

Why not sew the tie backs to the far edge of the curtains... push the curtains as far back from the window as the curtain rod will allow, then wrap the tie back around the curtain. I've used this method successfully when the tie back has velcro on it... it' wraps tightly. YMMV

When I had my Boler I made a slight cut in insolite and then glued in a plastic hook type thing onto the fg and then used it for curtains and blinds. I never had a problem.

Drapery hooks (the kind used in pleated drapes) work perfectly. Just stick the pointed end down into the ensolite. I sewed small plastic rings onto the tiebacks to hang the tiebacks on the drapery hooks. The best thing is that if you ever want to remove them, the hole closes up. I use the hooks to hang other things too. Cheap & easy & works great!

not being the domestic goddess ( my friends have stated that the only domestic quality I have is that I live in a house!) I just used spring clothes pins, push the curtains open, and then just clip on the rod.

With my Trillium, this location is backed by plywood. As they said in the seventies, "screw at will!"

I took a screw out of the window frames. I ran the screw through the edge of the curtain, then through tie back and then screwed it back into the frame from where it came.

You could run the screw just through the tie back if you desire.

Hey sugarmc--I do the same thing! I painted mine blue and brown to match the curtains!

I used a piece of flat aluminum stock cut to proper length and screwed to the window frame with a threaded "well nut", rubber bushing for the tie back to hook to. Total cost from home deep hole $ 3.00

well nut
