Question 68 safari with window tracks

Does anyone know if there are stainless steel doo-hickies that I can use and re-sew on my curtains instead of the plastic doo-hickies that crack and break all the time????
Amy

Curtain Slides

Amy, If you have one off the curtain take it to a drapery shop and see if the can come up with one that will work for you. That is what I am going to do when I get to that point on my restoration. If you find something that works please let us all know. Also, it would be nice if you could post a picture of anything you find with your comments on installation. Hope this helps... Ed

What type of tracks do you have? Is it the type for G Sliders that is just a thin strip attached sideways on the wall? Or is it the flat one that the slider fits inside a groove to slide?

curtain sliders

here is the ones that were in my A/S when we got it. They are the old fashion hooks. They do rust after several years, but they do last longer than the plastic and you can get them at walmart or dollar store. As for the slider part, you can get them online. Try outofdoorsmart.com. They have reasonable prices on there slides, the cheapest I have found and great shipping prices also.

you should be able to use the metal ones. did you look at the outofdoorsmart website. They have them. I saw some on there that were all metal that you might be able to use.

I found a different plastic doo-hickie at vintage trailer. They come in a pack of 25 for less than 5 buck. Sure beats 30 cents a piece. They look much sturdier. I will let you know when I get down to my sewing project. I will continue to look for a stainless substitute. The old style (can be found at Inland RV) and are pretty good since they've lasted 40 years.
