Answers to all your curtain-hanging questions.
Does the window trim need to be a certain width?
Window trim must be at least 1/2 inch minimum in width to one inch maximum in width to accommodate the Kwik-Hang bracket.
What size curtain rod should I purchase?
Curtain rod size depends on the type of curtains you want to hang.
- 5/8-inch rods: Ideal for sheer or lighter curtains. Fits rods 1/2 - 5/8-inch diameter.
- 1-inch rods: Best for heavy curtains or drapery. Fits rods with 3/4 - 1-inch diameter.
Do I need a center support bracket?
We recommend using center support brackets for windows wider than 60 inches. You can use this guide to help:
- Up to 60" window: Standard Kwik-Hang brackets.
- 61" or 120" windows: One center support bracket.
- Windows 120" and wider: Two center support brackets.

How do Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks work?
Every Kwik-Hang curtain holdback has a set of pins that attach to the side of the window trim and secure it in place — no drilling, nails or damage required.
Do Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks work with any type of window or curtain?
Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks work on windows that have wooden trim. The window trim should be at least 1/2 inch wide to fully accommodate the holdback. Not recommended for use on oak, pvc or metal trim.
Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks are suitable for all curtains and drapes.
What tools do I need to install my Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks?
Kwik-Hang’s curtain holdbacks use the same technology as our damage-free curtain rod brackets. Just use a hammer to tap each curtain holdback hook to the side of your window trim (no drills, screws or nails needed!).
Where do I mount my Kwik-Hang curtain holdbacks?
Ideally, curtain holdbacks should be placed 40 to 48 inches from the floor, but this also depends on the placement of your window and your personal preference.
