The Grommet tape is 100% polyester 3-1/8″ wide and has 1-5/8″ ID (Inside Diameter opening) grommets, or 2-3/8″ wide and has 3/4″ ID grommets, which fit all popular drapery poles. They are evenly spaced with approximately 8 grommets per yard. Plastic spacers built into the grommets allow you to form shape retaining folds. This is figured for double fullness.
HOW-TO MEASURE: Just measure your Drapery rod in inches, multiply it by 2, then divide by 36″ to get the yardage you will need. If you like it extra full, you can always increase to 2-1/2, or even 3 x’s for lighter weight fabrics.
Multiply the yardage figure by 8 to figure the amount of Decorative Snap-On Rings you will need. Save any extra rings for future replacements if necessary. Note: It may be necessary to adjust cut width to accommodate spacers. (Allow ending hole on EACH end to go back to the wall.
DECORATIVE RINGS: Snap into the grommets and come in metal finishes and colors. They are interchangeable. Their smooth plastic material does not scratch the paint or finish of your drapery hardware. They are Rust Proof because they are NOT metal, but a light-weight plastic that moves easier, and thus are washable
