Installing Pelmets Sitting On Architrave

Step 1. Consider drop height:

What ever the distance from the top of your architrave to the floor is your drop. The finished drop for curtains made to Easy-Track specifications should be between 2.5cm and 3 cm less than this, this will allow the curtains to hang between 1cm and 1.5 cm above the floor.

Step 2. Fix small silver brackets to top of architrave, small gold brackets on wall next to architrave and mark centre:

Using a cordless drill - screw small silver brackets to top of architrave with small end facing up towards ceilng. Attach small gold brackets on wall at same height as top of architrave. Measure outside architrave to outside architrave half this measurement and measure out from one side, pencil mark this point on top of architrave - this is your window middle point.

Step 3. Before attaching pelmet to wall:

When screwing into small bracket in wall from underneath position the tip of the screw as close
to front side of bracket hole as possible, this will force track closer to the wall as screw tightens up.

Step 4. Fix pelmet to wall:

Place tiny screw on cordless drill end and place drill in a position you can easily reach from ladder. Lift track up from the center and place on top of architravel. Align middle track pencil mark with middle wall pencil mark. Using smallest screws while pushing track hard against wall screw, screw track to bracket. One screw should hold it till you organise yourself to put the remaining screws in.
