Curtain Pole Conundrum

644 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Colbyt

Hoping for some help with a curtain pole conundrum that has left me scratching my head for a solution.

I have a long pole in my bedroom where I have double patio doors. It requires centre support for the 2 individual sections of the pole. However, the is no space to put a centre bracket as there is no space between the top of the doors and the coving.

After some research I figured a centre bracket from the ceiling would work. However the centre brackets are too short. I need a the bracket to be 140mm long to reach from the ceiling to the pole.

I can't raise the pole as the coving won't allow it.

I've searched and searched for a centre bracket that is long enough and found nothing.

I wondered how I might make a plinth for a centre bracket but surely that would look terrible.

Argh..... it's driving me crazy. :vs_cry::vs_cry::vs_cry:

Any suggestions or help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks, Louise

A photo or even a sketch would surely help your position here. Worst case, get a piece of plumbers strap and fab up an extension. You can screw the strap to the ceiling, and the too-short bracket to the bottom end of the strap. Can paint it white if you want.

Google "screw hook".

Mount the rod from the ceiling and buy longer curtains.
You need a Kirsch 5618 or 5619 center support bracket.


The left end of that image shows the wall portion. You need 1.624" of wall or wood to mount that to. Works with 1-3/8 " poles also.
