Add Hole to Belt

Referring to mark made with marker, add a hole through the belt using nail and hammer along a flat, level surface.

Attach Belt to Wall

Use measuring tape and pencil to mark the wall at approximately 4 feet up from the floor. This is a great range for drapery panels approximately 8 feet in height. Wrap belt around drapery panel, then use drill or screwdriver to secure the belt directly to the wall approximately 10 inches in from the front edge of the buckle.

Secure Belt to Drapery

Tighten belt around drapery panel, securing in place with additional hole.
