    I'm on the hunt for replacement gliders with the rings.

    In the reference photo I have 125 of the ring gliders, however they are 1mm less than my original gliders.
    Which results in them not gliding very well, especially once the curtains are hung.

    JustKampers have some for sale: http://www.justkampers.com.au/silent-gliss-curtain-glides.html
    however is anyone sure of the width that sits within the track?

    Thanks in advance.

    I was wondering if you have found your curtain gliders?
    Like you I purchased some from Just Kampers and found them to be too small.
    I have now ordered some different ones off ebay to see if they fit.

    The grey glider in Mark's photo is not a broken loop style, they are a different style the does not have a loop.
    The draw string on the curtain tape passes behind the slider in the groove of the track.
    I know Trakka used the smaller sliders and matching track, available in both aluminium and plastic on some of their vans.
    I don't know if the loop type are available in the 4mm size.

    Any solution on this? I think I've got 4mm tracks from the original fitout; I'll have to check when I get up to the workshop next time.

    Hi, has anyone found these curtain gliders yet please? We are just replacing our curtains and some of the gliders are breaking. They are the ones that hook around the string. The 4 mm grey ones, I think! Thanks in advance.

    If all else fails send me an email, or better yet one of the busted rings and will let you know what they would cost to remake in Nylon.
    Should be a quick job by the looks

    Get a new track from Camec and shape it the same. Use your old one as a guide. I did this and it was easy. Then buy the the new glides to suit. Easy as. Problem solved. Track comes in 4 meter lengths.

    I'm thinking that will be a good idea. Change the back door one as it's easier to get at. Thanks

    Hey Beegee,
    This is a real option as Nils is good at 3D print stuff. It would depend how many you need between track cost/ time etc?
    Cheers

    Curtains are almost ready to hang in Vyv, yet I'm unable to find suitable guides for the old track. I would be interested in the 3D printed stuff if it possible.
    Cheers
