  • Patent number: 5417271
    Abstract: A mounting system and method for mounting a decorative window treatment, such as a valance or lambrequin comprising a first complementary member having a resilient spline portion extending along the length of the member, a second complementary member which is adapted to interlock with the first member and the decorative window treatment, and an adhesive strip for attaching one of the complementary members to a headrail of the window treatment. The spline of the first complementary member has a pair of opposing spaced apart arcuate half portions separated by a gap and an adjoining channel portion for flexing the arcuate half portions towards each other during the interlocking of the first member with the second member and the window treatment.

  • Patent number: 4390055
    Abstract: A drapery support system includes a conventional rod adapted to slidably support a plurality of carriers. Each carrier has an upper section that engages the rod and a downwardly depending section taking the form of a U-shaped plate with the outer section of its bight secured to the upper section so that the two plate-like arms project downwardly. The arms extend parallel to one another and normally to the axis of the rod and are spaced along the axis of the rod. Holes formed through the two arms act as female sections of a snap fastener to receive a pair of male snap fasteners secured at spaced points along a tape joined to the upper edge of the drape. The spacing between a pair of male snap fasteners on the tape exceeds the distance between the two arms of the carrier so that the drape section between the fasteners extend freely in a drape-like roll.
