Sidelight Curtain Spring Rods (Tension Rods) are now available to purchase from the Sidelight Curtain Store. If you already are going to order curtains from us, there is no need to be at this page since all rods are included for FREE with each curtain purchased from us.
Spring-Rods are also called Tension-Rods and Spring Tension-Rods. These curtain rods are the easiest to install and will have your curtains up in less than a minute. They don't require any screws, nails, or mounting hardware. They hold themselves up by way of a spring on the inside that 'pushes' them outward very much like the common shower curtain rods do. They mount on the inside of your window sill or molding/trim. You need 1/2 inch of flat space on the inside of your window sill or molding/trim in order for them to hold into place. Since they mount in front of your window glass, the curtain length in this method will be the exact same length of your window itself They are white/off-white and have rubber ends to prevent them from scratching your molding. With this method the curtains will ONLY cover the glass itself NOT the molding/trim.
There is NO SHIPPING CHARGES ADDED to the purchase of Sidelight Curtain Spring Rods from this page. The $14/pair cost includes all shipping and handling. (Canadian Orders will incur an additional $10 for shipping)
Included with each purchase will be 2 (two) Spring Curtain Rods. One for mounting at the top of your window and will slip into the rod pocket on top of your curtain, and the other will slip into the rod pocket on the bottom of your curtain and will mount at the bottom of your window.
WIDTH BOX: SIMPLY PUT THE WIDTH OF YOUR WINDOW. THAT'S IT!
We will do the math and make the curtains much wider so they will gather or be 'pushed together' and will look nice and full when on the rods. Generally 2&1/2- 4 times as wide, depending on the fabric.
Sidelight Curtain-example: You enter 9" in the WIDTH BOX. Your custom made curtains will be 23"-36" wide. Door Panel Curtain-example: You enter 21" in the WIDTH BOX. Your custom made curtain will be 53"-84" wide.
(If your inside molding is different than your glass size, please enter these dimensions instead. We need the actual width and length of the AREA you want to mount the curtains in)
LENGTH BOX: SIMPLY PUT IN LENGTH FROM TOP ROD TO BOTTOM ROD.
For INSIDE MOUNT (spring-rods), this will simply be the length of your glass. For OUTSIDE MOUNT (sash, cafe-sash, and magnetic rods), this will be the length of your glass plus 4-6 inches, depending on where you want to place your rods.
** If you already have your own rods in place, simply measure from the top of the top rod to the bottom of the bottom rod, and put this measurement in the LENGTH BOX ***
REAL LIFE EXAMPLE: You measure your sidelight window or door window and the glass width is 14" X length of 62.5".
For SPRING RODS you will simply put 14" in the "width box" and 62.5" in the "length box".
For SASH RODS, CAFE-SASH RODS, OR MAGNETIC RODS you will simply put 14" in the "width box" and 67.5" in the "length box". (length plus 5")

Due to the nature of our products, we strongly recommend our customers to request swatches of the fabric (s) prior to ordering any of our products. Images vary and may not describe fabric, color, textures, etc. as they are.
If we make an error we will gladly either replace your curtains at no charge or give you a full refund.
If you make an error or change your mind on what curtain you desire, what we offer is simply our willingness to do WHATEVER we can to make you happy!
