Need Info on Folding Door Track Tabs

Since my 63 Overlander didn't come with the actual folding accordian doors, I am in need of the tabs that slide along in the track so I can sew them to some curtains. I have seen a number of differnt style curtain slider tabs for sale on various A/S-related websites, but do not know what I am looking for. Anyone have a picture of or suggestions for what I need?

-Thanks
Tracey

Accordion door Tabs

Here is what I have. The one on the left is for the door. The one on the right, I am told is for sewing into fabric. Sorry about the blurry pic. But you get the idea.

Squrlgurl,
I'm looking for the same tabs. I'll try to get a picture of what they look like. It may take me a while. I have not had much luck locating them. I was going check out company's who manufacture window coverings and see if could find something close.

No Idea, I only have the one extra one. I have seen the others someplace, just don't remember where. Problem is if you get used ones they too are 30 to 40 years old. Argh !

No Problem. Let us all know if you happen to stumble across a bunch of them. My door is in tough shape. Red Green would be proud of my duct tape skills.

YAY! Thank you C Johnson. I actually think I saw the sew-on tab on the right for sale somewhere....maybe at RVWorld in Annapolis. I will check and get back to this thread if I find them.

I am assuming that I will have to remove the track from the frame, slide the tabs on and then re-screw the track to the header. Any thoughts?

Yep, you do have to remove the track. Be careful not to dent it. Dents in the track will prevent the tabs from sliding well.

Funny this all should come up now. I just purchased an accordian door and it came with all of the original tabs. Glad to know there is something available to replace them with if need be. Now I just need to get the aluminum mounting strip polished, sew up a loose seam and install the whole thing.

They are also available in Camping World, in boxes of ten, as well as our favorite vintage Airstream parts store, Inland.
