What Are Some Tips for Installing Drapery Holdbacks?

Some tips for installing drapery holdbacks include making sure you fasten the hook-shaped holdbacks to the jack and king studs beneath the drywall in an American home. Another prime spot for installing holdbacks is at the top of the window for drapery.

Install drapery holdbacks by measuring the distance from the curtain rod to the floor then dividing by three, measuring up from the floor to one third the height of the curtain, positioning the holdback with the hook toward the window and marking the location of the mounting holes on the wall with a pencil. Install it within three inches of the window's edge.
