Adjustable Sew-in Curtain Hooks Comparison

Adjustable sew-in curtain hooks are available in several versions and various sizes.

There have been several versions of these very popular adjustable sew-on curtain hooks over the years with the Microflex curtain hooks being amongst the most popular.

The microflex range are available in 75mm to 95mm sizes.
I believe Paloma made their own version, but as of 2011 it has not been available from the UK distributor Speedy Products.
True to form Silent Gliss make their own version which is significantly different from the microflex and Paloma versions.
None of the above makers hooks are interchangeable, i.e. you can’t slide the microflex on to the Silent Gliss etc. I mention this as generally the hooks become detached when the curtains go to the cleaners or snap due to general ware and tare. Unfortunately the hooks aren’t generally available as a separate component from any of the manufacturers.

NOTE that although the Goelst hooks used to be interchangeable with the Microflex version and vice versa. As of 2016 it is unclear as to whether their new stock will be.
