The worst twin track design........EVER!

    • Difficult To Hang

    Best Uses

      This is a good quality product for a decent price with an APPALLING design flaw.

      Takes a little studying of the instructions to establish what to do, unlike 5 previous Harrison Drape twin tracks we have which had been easy to fit years ago. Dunelm have clearly revised the instructions with marginally better ones though, (we bought 3 tracks and the instructions with 1 are really, really bad in comparison to the other, haven't opened package 3).

      There is no contents list on the packaging so you will unpack it before you realise it has valance hooks but NO curtain hooks! The curtain track is pretty good, easy to add more track gliders even once the track is up and a sturdy construction, good heavy duty draw strings and a natty 'tensioner' to fit to the wall, all good so far.

      However, here comes the completely negative bit......the valance track is totally impossible to fit properly. It has only 2 arched, supporting fitting brackets placed at approx. 1/4 and 3/4 way along the track, BUT there is little to NO support at either end of track. Nothing to support the last couple of feet or the curving ends of the track.

      At the very ends of the valance track there is a tiny hole, you are expected to 'push' this onto a small 'fitting location' and snap it into place. Trouble is this 'fitting location' sticks up a mere 1 1/2 mm, yes I do mean mm not cm. There is barely enough there to tuck into a hole let alone snap into place, certainly not enough to provide any support whatsoever to the curved end and 2 further feet at either end of the valance track.

      What we ended up with on completion was sagging valance barely supported for a couple of feet either end, with the centre sections fully supported to such an extent the track arched along the centre. Looked rubbish, though the curtain track was perfectly straight, the valance brackets fit to it so no reason why this shouldn't be straight as well - completely let down by the saggy unsupported ends.

      The two remaining products are being returned to the store. Have been obliged to undertake a bit of DiY adaptation to make this one vaguely acceptable but may yet tear it all down and return it as 'not fit for purpose'.

      Good quality, rubbish design, buy at your peril. We are experienced at curtain hanging and the various fittings of tracks, this is by far the worst, most unacceptable EVER.

      Product design would only be acceptable if it included 2 further valance brackets at either end, just before the curves of the valance, leaving the 'fitting location' thing to hold only the very ends of the track in place against the wall.

        I don't agree with the reviews about it being difficult to put up at all. I don't do DIY at all but it only took me 15 mins to do-just requires basic common sense. Great item really pleased.

                  Good quality, and not difficult to fit

                    This is a fairly well-made and robust product, although perhaps the 122/218 mm size coud do with two centre supports instead of one. The instructions are clear, with rather small diagrams.

                    The valance rail is not the most solid, but perfectly adequate. With a little thought the method of fixing can be deduced, and is mentioned in another review. Fit the valance brackets so that the pointed sides are perpendicular to the wall, remove the plastic plugs from the end of the valance rail (those marked 'Remove'), tilt the rail up slightly at the front, thread the top spike of the bracket into the end of the rail and through the topmost hole. Fold the rail down to the horizontal. Done.

                    You can add additional sliders to the rail, and fitting the curtain hooks is no more difficult than with any other rail. A good product I'd use again.

                    Instructions very difficult to follow

                          It took hours to make sense of the instructions they are very difficult to follow. I am sure it does not need to be so awkward a job, we would not use this again, there were not even any hooks for the curtains. It looks nice now it is up, but is not worth the effort, if we had read the reviews first we would not have used it.

                                The instructions and the web photo are misleading. [...]The flat bracket gets slotted behind the wall bracket, with angled bits pointing away from the track, held to the wall under the main fitting. The pelmet rail clips over the flat brackets (there are holes in end of pelmet rail, these locate over the pointy bit of the flat bracket and click into position)Easy when you know how!! They look great and work a treat.

                                        I agree with other reviews, this was not easy to install, but my main criticism is that it is not possible to add extra gliders. The number supplied is not sufficient to allow the curtain to hang properly, and I had expected to be able to buy spares and add them to the rail, as I have done with other brands of rails. [...]

                                              My neighbour installed the rail for me and I got the running commentary. The instructions are, as stated by another reviewer, sparse and incomplete.

                                              Another issue is that once the rail is up, try and figure how I attach the curtain hooks to the rail is well nigh impossible. I've been at it for over an hour and am still no closer to a working solution.

                                              Great idea, well made but not user friendly. It is for the lack of user friendliness that I would say it is poor value for money.

                                                  This is not a easy Rail to hang, because the instructions are very bad and there is no contents list. My freind and I had a hard time working out how the vallance rail fitted to the curtain track. We are both good at DIY and Have a lot of experince I am 62 My freind 76 and a retired Tradesman in building etc. If you buy this product try to find out how the vallance fits to the rail before leaving the shop, as it could save you a good few hours of going mad. once it is compleated you will be happy with it im sure.

                                                  The product is well designed for the hanging of curtains and is very robust,but the pelmet rail instructions are so poor I have no idea how to fix the rail to the ends of the curtain rail. I am an experienced DIYer and a technician by trade and after studying the product for over an hour, I still could not see how to achieve a positive fix for the rail.

                                                  This is not a product that a layman should try to hang. It needs precision to hang the rail at the correct height for existing curtains. You need a baton you cannot drill this many holes into lintels above windows and you need a heavy duty drill not your usual DIY elctric drill from B&Q if you decide to try. The instructions are very difficult to follow. The rails cost over [$] for three and the fee I had to pay to get a builder in for a few hours to fix them doubled this easily. Not a cheap option!

                                                      hi R J, thanks for your question. You will be able to hang the net curtains in place of the valance yes, allowing you to have both net, and standard curtain. Kind regards

                                                      Hi Puddycat, thanks for your question. The valance piece should fix on the underside of the main track / bracket. The pack does include full fitting instructions however. Kind regards
