What Hardware do I Need to Hang Pinch Pleat Drapery on Curtain Rods/Poles?

This is probably the most frequently asked question from our clients who order custom curtains with pinch pleats for the first time. While there are multiple hardware options based on price and quality, we are ardent fans of the functional efficiency of a simple clip and pin mechanism.

See images below for a handy reference but in a nutshell, drapery pins are inserted into the back (lining side) of the panels through the heading tape. The sharp, pointed end goes into the tape, directly into the center of each pinch pleat. Then the curved end of the pin goes through the eyelet of your drapery ring/clip or rod carrier.

And that’s it!

You’ll get a super tailored, polished look from the front – and your new pinch pleat drapes will glide smoothly over your drapery rod.

You can see examples of a few commonly used hardware options on links below. We hope these help!
