Step 1 - How To Measure
Step 2 - Attachment Ideas
Sleeve Expansion Anchors
A popular method for hanging your tarps is by using a sleeve expansion joint. Basically you drill a hole and then when you tighten the bolt down it expands the sleeve holding the bolt/tarp tightly. The mounting holes can stay in place all year until its time to once again install the tarps. Available from local hardware stores and many online stores.
A common attachment method we use for our gazebo curtains and walls. There are a few hook types below:
- Cornice Hooks. The cornice hook screws into your structure through the grommet and then you point the L shape head upward to hold the curtain.
- Hanger Hooks.They can attach to almost any surface and removal of the tarp is easy once it is no longer needed.
- Pin Hooks. They have two sides - a sharp pin and a curved hook and up to four prongs total.
- S-Hooks. They resemble the shape S and can be used with any curtain type. Make sure they are in good condition, as they are clearly visible.
- Snap Hooks. A niche application where you want to connect two or more curtains together. The hook clips through grommets with ease.
Lag Screws, Bolts, Nuts, and Washers
One of the simplest ways to keep a gazebo curtain in place. The eye lag screw screws into your structure through the grommet and then you put a small piece of material through the opening of the lag screw so the tarp can blow off.
We use these most often for outdoor applications where the weather can become harsh. These screws will keep your gazebo curtain in place even during the strongest of winds.
The easiest to use curtain attachment method and commonly used for clear Yardistry gazebo curtains. Twist locks use a special oval shaped grommet with a twist lock fastener. The fastener screws into you structure and stays there all year round. When you take down your tarps for the year they will be ready for you next year.
Cable ties are a versatile and reliable option for securing clear tarps in a gazebo setting. Their compact design allows for a discreet and unobtrusive look, while their strong grip ensures that the tarp stays in place even in windy conditions. The ease of use and adjustability of cable ties make them a popular choice for securing tarps in gazebos, as they allow for quick and simple adjustments to be made as needed. Whether you're looking to create a more private space, protect your outdoor furniture from the elements, or simply add some style to your gazebo, cable ties can be a practical and effective solution.
AKON offers a rich choice of industrial curtain hardware, made out of 16-gauge galvanized steel. Our hardware parts are made for heavy-duty operations and are commonly used for welding, wash bays, garages, warehouses, loading docks, retail uses, and other applications.
- Ceiling Mounts which mount directly to the ceiling. The track then allows for the curtain to roll side to side on rollers.
- Wall Mounts which mount directly to the face of a wall or vertical surface. The track then allows for the curtain to roll side to side on rollers.
- Chain or Cable Mounts which drop down from high above to suspend the curtain. The track then allows for the curtain to roll side to side on rollers.
- Threaded Rod Mounts to drop down from high above to suspend the curtain. The track then allows for the curtain to roll side to side on rollers.
- I-Beam Mounts work best when connecting to a truss. Once connected, you simply tighten down the set screw.
- I-Beam clamps which mount to joists, purlins, and I-Beams. The eye hook then goes through the grommets and into the bottom of the clamp.

Common Challenges and Workarounds
The challenge of not having a flat surface to attach the clear tarps to is a common issue in the installation process. However, with the right tools and techniques, it can be effectively overcome to ensure a secure and seamless installation.
In some instances, the beams or supporting structures may not be aligned or parallel to the desired location for mounting the clear tarps. However, this challenge can be overcome by utilizing hook screws or hook snaps. These fastening solutions provide a secure and reliable hold with a high-strength rating, ensuring complete coverage for your gazebo.
When installing a tarp, there are often obstacles that need to be navigated around, such as beams, poles, or other structures. These obstacles can make it difficult to properly secure the tarp and ensure that it stays in place. This is where precision cuts come in. We can make cuts in the tarp that are specifically tailored to go around these obstacles, ensuring that the tarp is securely in place and that it covers the desired area.
Securing tarps or static panels requires both high-quality materials and a reliable mount. A good mount guarantees that the tarp or panel stays in place and offers the protection level you want. One option for a mount is the sleeve expansion anchor, which is designed to provide a sturdy and stable hold.
There can be obstacles that require you to consider whether to install the tarp inside or outside of a structure. Installing a tarp inside can provide added protection from the elements and added living space, while installing a tarp outside can provide added privacy and an outdoor living space. Both options have their own set of benefits and challenges, and it's important to consider which option would be the best for your specific situation.
Precision and accuracy are key. One way to ensure that you get the right product the first time is to create detailed drawings prior to ordering. This can help you to visualize the final product, identify any potential challenges or obstacles, and ensure that all of your specifications are met.
At AKON, we prioritize accuracy in custom products. Before ordering, we offer the option to include detailed drawings in your quote to ensure that our manufacturing process aligns with your requirements.
