What are flick sticks?
Flick sticks, also sometimes known as (curtain) wands, are slim poles usually made from plastic, fibreglass or metal that can be used to open and close curtains, without having to pull the fabric by hand. This can be useful if you have delicate or light-coloured curtains that are going to show marks easily.
Can I purchase flick sticks at Spotlight?
Yes, our range of curtains, poles, tracks and accessories would not be complete without some flick sticks. Our flick sticks are made from acrylic and will attach to your curtains or curtain runners with a small metal clip. They are available in clear and white.
Can I use flick sticks with all curtains?
Because the flick stick needs to be attached to the curtain, it is not suitable for use with eyelet, tab top or rod pocket curtains. Any curtain that has header tape attached, runs along a track or hangs from curtain rings, will be able to have a flick stick attached to it.
Can I use flick sticks for anything else?
Flick sticks can sometimes also be used to operate blinds, but this depends on the type of blind and the way it is manufactured. Most blinds that can be operated in this way will come complete with flick sticks, but the flick sticks available at Spotlight could be used as replacements if needed.
How do I care for my flick sticks?
Flick sticks should not need much looking after, apart from some dusting and the occasional wipe with a damp cloth to get rid of surface dirt. Make sure that you hold the flick stick away from the curtain(s) when cleaning, to avoid getting chemicals or fluids on your curtain material.
