Making Curtain Tension Rod
Curtain tension rod – A tension rod is the perfect curtain rod if you do not want to deal with props, screws and precise measurements. They are used to hang curtains for curtains, bathroom drapes and everything you need from a quick hang-up installation. You may need to create your own draw bar to fit a particular area in your home or match a particular decoration. Examine the window frame, the door arch or the area where you want to have a tension bar. Consider the purpose of the suspension of the tension rod, perhaps through pure curtains in the window behind the more formal curtains. Measure the width of the range from side to side on the draw bar.
Metal shafts or metal pipes for your stalks. They must be very close to the diameter, but one of the metal shafts must be able to slide comfortably into the other. The length of the metal shafts depends on the width of the clamping beam area. If the window frame is 36 inches wide, each metal shank should be 20 inches to 30 inches wide.

Purchase a spring in a hardware that is tightly screwed tightly into the slightly larger trees of the two metal shafts. This must be a strong spring since so much pressure has been exerted to give perfect curtain tension rod to hang the bar. Find two plastic or rubber covers that fit on each end of the bars. A rubber stopper is a little better choice than plastic because it simply spreads into the cracking of the wall for better grip.
Mount your best curtain tension rod by attaching the rubber or plastic plugs to one end of the metal shafts. Slide the spring down onto the larger of the two metal shafts. Insert the other metal shaft into the open end of the main shaft against the spring. Hold the draw bar in the hand at the intersection of the two shafts. Place one end of the tension rod about 1 inch back from where you want to end it. Slide or pull the other end of the rod when you are working in place. The more the two ends reach the correct point, the higher the tension in the bar. Hang your curtains, curtains, or attach decorative handkerchiefs to the tie bar, and you’re done.
