Whether you're looking for bulk packs, snap in gliders or heavy duty curtain track gliders, our range has you covered!

Curtain Track Gliders FAQs

Which type of curtain track gliders do I need?

Spotlight's selection of curtain track gliders are designed to be compatible with our easy to install curtain tracks. If you have a track purchased from Spotlight it should be straightforward to find the corresponding gliders you need. If you're unsure about which gliders you need, the best way is to remove one from the track to compare the size and shape.

How to install curtain track gliders

Some styles of curtain track gliders are designed to snap in place, meaning all you need to do is push them into position inside the track. Other types of curtain track gliders need to be threaded into the track from the end. To do so, remove the end caps from your curtain track and slide the required amount of curtain track gliders into position.

How many curtain track gliders do I need on a track?

If you have a pair of especially wide or heavy drapes, you may wish to add some additional gliders to your curtain track to facilitate ease of movement and adequately support the curtains. You should have the same number of gliders on your track as curtain hooks threaded into the curtain heading tape. The general rule of thumb is to space curtain hooks 5 cm - 10 cm apart in the header tape.
