    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.

                            The valance rail is next to impossible to fit. Even consulted the picture on the web site and that is completely confusing; in fact I would strongly suggest it is wrong because the position of the valance rail in the picture is impossible to achieve

                                    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!

The tandem curtain track hasnt been specifically designed for this purpose so we would not recommend this as it may effect the way it works. We are not saying it cannot be used, but it may be less effective. Thanks again.
