If you are using wall mount curtain holdbacks or tie back curtain brackets, they are easy to install on to the wall. The black wrought iron curtain tie backs are reliable because they are sturdy and strong. These iron curtain brackets can withstand the weight of the fabric if you have heavy drapes. Position the curtain brackets to the wall where you want the curtains to be held, and with an electric screwdriver, mount the brackets in place. The wall mount holdbacks come with mounting hardware. Once the bracket hardware is securely in place, test the weight of your curtains by placing the fabric inside the curvature of the bracket. The brackets will hold the curtains nicely and are pretty to look at, as well as functional. If you are using swag holdbacks, the same directions apply, only you will be mounting these brackets at the top of the window treatments.
