Which curtain sliders do I need?

It's a 70 sovereign international land yacht. The pics are of the window by the front gaucho over the credenza. I was thinking the t sliders with elastic on them but I think they are 1/4" and it looks like the opening on mine is that big.

From Vintage RV Supply "large eye sliders" with "curtain pin hooks". Other curtains in the 70 probably use "large sew in sliders"

I was afraid of that. I liked the idea of the elastic on the other style. Oh well. Thanks so much for the reply. At least I know what to order now.

I don't really sew. A quick way to attach the sewn in sliders is with a "Buttoneer".

The correct drape tab is called "Kirsch drape tab".

A few Airstream dealers have them, as they are slowly becoming obsolete.

No elastic, just a sew on tab.

I used the eyelet type, cut 2" pieces of 1/4 elastic and inserted it in the eyelet. Gives you some play room for fitting them and they were easier to sew on with a machine that way.
