Easy Way to Hang Curtains | Home Hack

Take a square piece of paper or cardboard and cut out a corner to match the corner of the window. Decide the height you want the curtain to be mounted above the window and mark the cardboard. Make holes where you’ve marked. Place the cardboard on the wall and mark through the holes, onto the actual wall. Do this for both sides. Use a command hook with a heavy load capacity. Place the
command hook and wall mount onto the wall lining them up with the marks
you’ve made. Wait 30 minutes for the command hook to become secure and hang your curtains.

  1. What kind of curtain rod did you use (material, length, etc.) I bought one that has three pieces that extend to 120" but I don't think it's strong enough.

  2. I've been doing exactly this since at least 2006 through several different moves. It does work great, though I wish 3M made a special rod-holding hook for the purpose — it would be a little better if offset another half inch or inch out from the wall, for example.

  3. what size rod fits in the hooks? and thier site does say that each hook holds 5 lbs. is that strong enough?

  4. Thank you for this youโ€™re a lifesaver I paid a lot of money for the curtains rods that I have for moved to an apartment for the wall so hard you canโ€™t even get a nail through it and then on top of that if I damage the walls Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll be held accountable so these were so much easier now I have to figure out how to get the money back from the curtain rod that Iโ€™ve already purchased around December ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  5. I want to hang outdoor curtains on my condo balcony. I'm wondering: could I put one of these heavy-duty command hooks on either side (they'll be affixed to wooden surfaces) and then string wire across? Has anyone tried this? My curtains have velcro-closing tabs.

  6. I am SHOOKETH. As a twenty something in her first apartment I am mesmerized and amazed and mad at the amount of time Iโ€™ve spent doing this

  8. Seems more beneficial for the purpose of marking the holes evenly for rods rather than Command hooks. The c hooks appear too flush on the wall.

  9. The coefficient of friction of brushed steel on brushed steel won't keep that shit still. You're going to be pulling the rod around instead of the curtains. Spray the contact area with flex seal (outdoors)

  10. Works on one side, but not for the other. After many failed attempts I just gave up. Iโ€™m going back to the old fashioned way.

  11. When I see great videos like this, I shrink back in stupidity and look around to make sure nobody is watching me watch this:-) absolutely terrific video! I will be replicating this great hack

  12. Maybe okay if curtains aren't going to be hung by rings and need to slide to open and close curtains. I see me sliding everything right onto the floor.

  13. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ŠI have been doing this for the last 6 yrs on my duplex that we rent. I was always looking for ways to save money and not ding up walls. 3M products are absolutely amazing, and a complete GODSEND!!!!

  14. QUESTION: Would I placing the Command strip with the hook that came the strip? From there would I be hooking the bracket onto the Command hook? Or, do I use the Command hook in place of brackets? Has anyone used a Command strip on the bracket its self?
