Curtain end stops

At the end of the curtain track, there are end caps (stops) that prevent the clips from sliding off the end. These are screwed to the track.

I had one break this weekend. I have been surfing to fine replacements with no luck. Any suggestions where to find a replacement?

I just put a small stainless steel screw into the track as a replacement end stop. Don't put it in so tight as to distort the track.

Screws have it...

From what I gather, use a small stainless screw and keep your eyes out for replacements if they come along. Thanks.

Not quite the same

Mine have a more rounded edge.

Thanks. The search goes on...

End Caps

Try the mothership (Airstream) in Ohio. I bought several there last summer.

They use those on the curved track sections in the front and back. My dealer had these in stock when one broke last year.

Interestingly enough on my 2004 with the straight track sections, they just place a screw at the end of the track with the edge of the head just over the track end to keep things from sliding off.

Those used in newer Aristreams are shown below. You can get them at an Airstream repair center, I know. We bought some at Oasis RV in Tucson. There are two differnt caps for opposite ends of a track.

If you can't find them you can screw a short screw into the end of the track to keep the glides from coming off until you find the end caps. Be sure not to put a screw in that's too big or it will deform the track.
