You can get both kinds, including the elastic, from Vintage Trailer Supply. I just got two bags of each three weeks ago.

The original 1969 drape tab was spring loaded and cost over a couple of dollars each.

Most likely then, someone upgraded your drape tracks with the new style.

The new style uses "T" as well as "G" tabs, as you see them from the side.

Or, perhaps they used the early 70's type which is directly sewn on to the drapes. Those are called Kirsch tabs.

Not to confude you, but which ones do you now need?

VTS is great, I got some sliders for our '64 from them and they fit perfectly. I went to Allied Trailer supply in San Leandro for something else, and saw they had some other types that VTS doesn't have.

Roller Shades, Curtain Track, Awning Tack
