Slide on Drapery Rings

Count how many drapery rings are needed, depending on where they will be placed in relation to the threaded pipe. Slide drapery rings into place.

Add Galvanized Metal Elbows

In order to connect each section of the drapery hardware system to another, elbows must be attached. With all the drapery rings in place, screw elbows to the ends of threaded pipe, then attach each section.

Install Hardware System

With all threaded pipes and elbows tight and in place, and with the help of a friend, raise the hardware system into place by standing on a ladder. Using the chalk marks on the ceiling as a guide, attach each flange to the ceiling using drywall screws drilled directly into joists.
