How to: Add tension to Dignitet wire curtain
Materials: Dignitet corner bracket, hacksaw, file
Description: While the Dignitet curtain wire looks nice, it is not the most functional since it tends to sag (even when tensioned properly taut, it will sag). The corner bracket alleviates that, but gives a problem when you have 2 curtains on either side of the corner bracket: you then need to undo one of the fixings with an allen key whenever you want to put the curtains in the laundry.
solution: make a cut in the Dignitet corner bracket (on the top, obviously) so that it is a slit rather than a hole.. use a file to get rid of sharp edges.
It’s so small, it’s barely a hack, but it does make is sooooooo much easier to take off the curtains.
-It took about 5 minutes per bracket. You should fix the bracket to something like a work bench when cutting it, since using a vice is most likely going to scratch it.
