I've bought some curtains for DS2's room and they need hooks that go one a track (http://www.terrysfabrics.co.uk/prod/curtain-tracks/harrison-accessories/harrison-glide-hook-white?cmp=googleproducts&_$ja=tsid~46878&_$ja=cgid~15303983817|tsid~44542|cid~276976617|lid~74136286497|nw~search|crid~50682788097|dvc~c|adp~1o1|bku~1&gclid=CjwKEAiAhcGjBRDot_fjjtPKrgsSJACNYh762jc4qZcehYk4hQRzoaCBdGZT02-88xHzTS1y3eUzOBoCBi_w_wcB) but I've got curtain poles (http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/6244073.htm?CMPID=GS001&_$ja=cgid:17471325753|tsid:59157|cid:199888953|lid:92281723593|nw:g|crid:54430776873|rnd:13299143863916439373|dvc:c|adp:1o5|bku:1).

Are there any hooks I can buy that link the two or do I need some new poles?

When you say the curtains need those glide hooks , not sure what you mean.

I would have thought you could just take off the glider hooks and replace with normal curtain hooks which would hook into the loop under the curtain rings (Much as the hooks would go into that loop on the glider hooks.

That probably isn't dreadful clear and I may have misunderstood in which case I apologise

If the curtains have normal header tape then I can't see why you couldn't just do that .

I just typed out a reply only to realise it was exactly what Hocus said.

Take out the glide hooks and replace with regular curtain hooks.

Assuming the curtains have header tape fixed on the back you can thread these style upwards through the pocket at the relevant level starting with the less coiled end and onto the rings through the small eyes until the end faces downwards.

If your header tape is similar to this then yes exactly as Pipbin says buy the hooks she shows and insert as in link above. and insert as above . Then just hook through the little loop on the bottom of the curtain ring.

Good luck

Pipbin , LIZS , Cross posted with LIZS but nothing like a consensus grin.

That is amazing, thank you. I'm so annoyed, I had this problem before and bought those exact hooks but couldn't seem to work it out!
