The video instructions are for the latest version of the Swish Superluxe corded tracks, though the principles are the same for all versions of the Superluxe tracks. Indeed they will also be applicable to the many other corded curtain tracks.

Swish Superluxe Cording Instructions, also Supreme Glide.

Below are the instructions for assembling the Swish Superluxe curtain track.

Its in three parts, the first dealing disassembling your track, the second assembling a track corded from both sides, starting around 3 minutes into the video, the third assembling tracks corded from one side only, starting around 10.5 minutes.

The video demonstrates the procedure for tracks corded from one or both sides.

You should watch the video from the beginning, the difference for tracks corded from one side only is detailed around the five minute and 55 seconds mark.

The video’s in five parts:

🕔 Time Chapters:

  • 00:00 Disassembling
  • 01:53 Assembling the track; track corded from both sides
  • 05:30 Important to support the track at the pulley housing
  • 05:56 Tracks corded from one side only
  • 08:37 How cording systems work, all tracks

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, remove all the parts and give them a clean if necessary.

If your 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 one side only you will leave a loop for adjustment as below

Push the master carriers to the ends leaving the loop, then pull the cords from the down pulley, watching the loop at the master glider, and loop it over the ‘lug or cleat’ as it becomes taught

Swish Cording Instruction 10

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 all the load is exerted when you pull on the cord to open and close the curtains
