Curtain Tabs for 1962 Tradewind (original)?

Are these the right curtain tabs for the original track in a 1962 Tradewind?

Yes, but be apprised, they say that they can be sewn in. This should be done, but a home sewing machine doesn't have enough "punch" to poke through the plastic tabs. You'll need a heavy duty machine, or someone to do it for you. Since I didn't have a powerful machine with a strong needle, I punched holes in the plastic with an awl - left and right - and then basted them to the curtains by hand. Several hours of extra work, but I'm pleased with the end result.

If I recall correctly, the proper drape tab for the early 60's, had a round tip that would easily slide in the drape track.

They also could easily be sewn onto new drapes.
