Shower Curtain Rings – Vinyl shower curtains or curtain liners are more vulnerable to breakage in their suspension holes, near the top of the curtain. Vertical weight or force, transferred through the cups of the molded suspension holes, can cause the curtain to tear. To reinforce the holes in the top of the curtain or siding, trim the top edge of the curtain and create new, stronger suspension holes, using metal rings. The eyelets are paired rings, which when placed on each side of the curtain fabric and compressed together, create lasting suspension holes. This simple repair takes less than an hour.
Remove the curtain from the shower bar and suspension rings or hooks. Place the curtain face up on a flat surface. Make a uniform horizontal fold along the entire top edge of the curtain, approximately 1 1/2 inches from the trimmed edge. This step is simplified by folding the top of the curtain over the edge of a ruler. Center a wooden block below the first hole mark to hang. Place the cutting edge of the vertical drilling tool over the mark and strike with a mallet to form a new suspension hole.

Place the anvil in the wooden block, in the frame of the first suspension hole. Remove the clothespins from the top of the curtain. Use a cleaning cloth and a little alcohol to remove marks from the hole position. Insert a curtain-hanger hook or ring into each buttonhole and hang the reinforced shower curtain on the shower rod.
