  • What do I do if The Curtain Shim doesn’t fit snugly between my blinds and the window frame?
    Felt furniture pads work well, just apply as shown.
  • Does it come in other colors?
    Sorry, no it doesn’t. But the hooks can be colored with markers to match the rod. (see Image below)
  • How do I keep the rod from sliding when opening/closing the curtains?
    Place a zip tie or rubber band around the rod next to the outside edge of The Curtain Shim hooks as shown.
  • Can I use curtain panels and shears at the same time?
    Yes! For a layered look, place the shears on a rod and hang them from the smaller rod cradle on The Curtain Shim. Then hang the curtain panels and rod on the larger outer rod cradle.
  • Can I use a Valance?
    Absolutely! Hang valances on the Larger outer rod cradle. To add a more dramatic look, place panels or shears (or both!) on a rod and hang them from the smaller rod cradle.
  • How do I hang pocket curtains?
    To hang pocket curtains and hide the rod cradle, you will have to carefully cut a slit into the back side of the pocket. 1st, place the pocket window treatment on a rod and place it on the rod cradle, spreading the window treatment across the rod how you want it to ultimately look. Look behind the window treatment and locate the rod cradles. (pic 1) Next, Mark the location of the Rod cradle. (pic 2) Then remove the window treatments from the rod. Carefully cut a slit in the backside of the pocket, making sure you do not cut through the front side of the pocket. (pic 3) You will want to make the slit about 2–3 times wider than the width of the rod cradle to allow for gathering. Reinsert the rods through the window treatment pockets, align the slits to the Curtain Shim’s rod cradles, and slip them through the slits of the window treatment. Then spread window treatment to desired look.
  • How can I use The Curtain Shim with vertical blinds?
    Hanging Curtains to Vertical Blinds – Using Zip Ties The Curtain Shim can help you hang curtains over vertical blinds with absolutely no damage to walls. Simply place The Curtain Shim on top of the brackets and securely tighten two zip ties around The Curtain Shim and the bracket as shown. Hanging Curtains to Vertical Blinds – Permanent Installation First, make sure the head rail of the vertical blinds is slid fully forward by placing The Curtain Shim on top of the bracket. The screw hole of The Curtain Shim should rest easily on top of the screw that attaches the head rail to its brackets. If it does not rest easily on top, slightly loosen the head rail screw, pull the head rail toward you, then retighten. For brackets with screw slot: 1. Starting at the control end of the blinds, remove the first vane (or slat) for easier access to the bracket on that end of the blinds. 2. Place The Curtain Shim on top of the bracket as you did in the first step. Hold in place and mark the location of the bracket screw slot on The Curtain Shim. 3. Drill a hole anywhere along the mark on The Curtain Shim, using a 9/64” drill bit. Using the screw provided, attach The Curtain Shim to the head rail bracket as shown. Hand tight only, do not over tighten. 4. Re-attach the vane, slide your blinds open, then attach The Curtain Shims to the other brackets in the same manner are above. 5. Place your curtains on your rod and place the rod on the cradles. For brackets without screw slot: 1. Place The Curtain Shim on top of the bracket just like the above instructions. Hold in place and drill a hole through The Curtain Shim and the head rail bracket, using the same 9/64” drill bit. Making sure you do not screw through the vertical blinds head rail. 2. Using the screw provided, attach The Curtain Shim to the head rail bracket as shown. Hand tight only, do not over tighten. 3. Place your curtains on your rod and place the rod on the cradles.
  • Is there a weight limit to consider? Or is there a ratio of how many inches per shim set for large windows?
    A pair of The Curtain Shims holds about 10 lbs. Of course, the addition of shims will help with extra weight and weight distribution. 1 pair of The Curtain Shims for windows up to 48", add 1 of The Curtain Shims for every 36"-48" inches (36" for heavy drapes or blackout curtains, 48" for unlined, lightweight curtains or shears).
