For those of you who would like to read through how to dismantle and assemble your track the details are below.
First remove the track from the wall or ceiling and lay it out somewhere you can work on it, giving yourself enough room and lighting to work comfortably, and remove all the parts and give them a clean if necessary.
If you track is corded from both sides, then each cord loop will have one master carrier
if your track is corded from one side only, then the loop will have two master carriers
The knots which secure the curtain cord to the master gliders don’t need to be fancy
for tracks corded from one side only, then one overlap will be knotted as above, and the other will have the cord looped over the cleat as below
if your Swish Superluxe track is corded from one side only, then it will look like this once the cord and master gliders are inserted
you then need to insert the gliders, note these run in behind the cord, i.e. the cord lies flat against the track profile ( make sure the cords lie flat without any twists )
for tracks corded from both sides, the cord is would round the pulley wheels inside the pulley housing as below
if the track is corded from one side only then the one side will look as above, and the other as below
Superluxe curtain tracks corded from both sides will have what is called a double center return pulley and a center joiner, for other brands such as Silent Gliss these are also referred to as an intermediate pulley and joining bridge
for tracks corded from one side only you will leave a loop for adjustment as below
with the master gliders pushed as far back as they can go, pull the cord so that the loop tightens and hook it over the cleat. for tracks corded from both sides this won’t be necessary.
one last point to note with the Swish Superluxe track; there is a slot in the back of the down pulley housings, it is important that you place the last bracket in this slot so that it supports the track at the end where the all the load is exerted when you pull on the cord to open and close the curtains
