Frequently Asked Questions


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Does the tape work on shower curtain rods?

YES, as long as you clean the top of the curtain rod very well, the curtain slide tape will adhere to the curtain rod allowing the shower curtain to move freely across the rod.

Does the tape work on telescoping or extension type curtain rods?

YES, you must install the curtain slide tape so that it stretches across the extension point in the curtain rod (do not press the tape tightly into the joint) and this will allow the curtain rings to slide smoothly across the joint in the curtain rod. Note - you must apply the Curtain Slide Tape after the telescoping or extension rod is installed because once applied, you will not be able to further adjust the length of the curtain rod without removing the curtain slide tape.

How long will the tape last before it has to be replaced?

Given normal use conditions where the curtain is opened and closed a few times each day, we expect the curtain slide tape to last for several years before needing to be replaced.

How thick is the curtain slide tape?

The Curtain Slide tape surface is a hard plastic teflon®-like material that is approximately 0.010 inches thick with a high-stick acrylic adhesive on one side. In comparison, Curtain Slide tape is about 5 times thicker than a normal piece of Scotch® Magic™ Tape which is 0.002 inches thick. Since the surface material of curtain slide tape is very slippery, much harder and much more durable than other tape products, it is a terrific and long lasting solution for helping curtain rings slide easily across the curtain rod.

Can I remove and then re-apply the Curtain Slide Tape?

No. Removing the Curtain Slide Tape and re-applying it on the same curtain rod or another curtain rod will reduce the effectiveness of the silicone adhesive backing. This will void the warranty.
