Stretch out the curtain. You will see two horizontal pockets on the top edge, and two loops on the top corners.
In the Interstate, turn both visors until they're angled straight down. Unclip the inner end so they're just hanging by the outer end.
Slip one curtain pocket over the driver's side visor, with the pocket facing the inside. It should slip on far enough to clip the inner end of the visor back in place. Leave the visor hanging down.
Now slip the other pocket over the other visor, same way. Again leave the visor hanging straight down.
Then take the upper corners with the loops, and attach them to the clothes hooks located just behind the driver's and passenger's doors, above and behind the seats.
Forget about the little Velcro pads that are supposed to hold the bottom corners. The glue that's supposed to hold the Velcro to the interior molding is weak, and doesn't stick as well as the Velcro sticks to itself. Instead, just make sure the lower ends hang straight between the door and the seat.
The privacy curtain works best if you push the steering wheel as low and in as it will go using the adjustment lever on the underside of the steering column. You can still swivel the front seats with the privacy curtain in place, if you're careful.
Once the curtain is in place, it's best to go in and out by the side door only.
