Attach T-Connectors to Threaded Pipe

Fasten T-connectors to the ends of two threaded pipes. These are important to ensure proper weight distribution for longer pipes, which could sag once drapery rings and panels are added.

Add Threaded Nipples to T-connectors

Connect threaded nipples to the open threaded ends of T-connectors until tight. Tip: Threaded nipples are needed to attach various plumbing hardware pieces to each another. It's important to account for how many are needed while still at the home improvement store. Without the proper number of threaded nipples, most pieces cannot be attached to one another.

Attach Metal Flanges to Galvanized Metal Nipples

With the threaded nipples attached to the T-connectors, add the flanges. Screw in place by hand until tight.
