Frequently Asked Questions:
Can stair rods be used to hold my runner in place?
Stair rods are for decorative purposes only. You will need to use staples, tacks, adhesive pad, tack strip or some other means to attach your runner to the stairs.
How should I figure out the length of stair rod I should be ordering?
It is recommended by the manufacturer that you order stair rods at least 1 ½ inches longer than the runner length. This will give you ¼ inch space between the bracket and runner.
It appears my runner is a non-standard size. Can stair rods be cut to size?
Yes, stair rods are easily cut to size with a hacksaw or you can request we cut them for you. The manufacturer recommends a hacksaw blade with 12 to 24 teeth per inch for a smoother cut. Please remember, once a stair rod is cut it becomes a non-returnable item.
Can stair rods be placed over my existing carpet?
Yes, just use longer screws (typically 1 ½” or longer) which can be easily found at a local hardware store.
Can I clean stair rods once they have been installed?
The stair rods we offer have a protective lacquer coating. This will help to resist tarnishing. Just clean rods with a dry soft cloth. Remove stair rods if you will be cleaning your carpet or runner with liquid or chemicals. Simply reattach when area is dry.
I see there are tubular (hollow) and solid core stair rods. Are the hollow stair rods as durable as the solid core rods?
Both rod types are equally durable and under normal use the tubular rod will not dent.
Is it possible to bend stair rods for use on curved stairs?
Yes, the manufacturer recommends using solid stair rods from the Dynasty or Heritage collections. Once stair rods have been bent they become a non-returnable item.
