The black of blackout curtain inserts woven into the material increases the curtain's blackout strength. The only complaint we had is that the black lining doesn't go all the way to the top of the drapes. Thus, the light will pass through the top portion of the grommets. Not a significant flaw, still, we chose to be picky. If you are a light sleeper or need a curtain to create a cave-dark environment for your home theater or computer operation, this could be a great choice. That's why you can purchase a blackout curtain. This one made the cut with its terrific ability to cancel out 99% sunlight and about 60% external noise. The strength of Utopia Bedding Curtain lies in the fabric it is composed of.

Uberhaus model 38115211 curtain assembly

Hello, Bruce -

Is your question about a retractable sun shelter with curtains manufactured by Uberhaus? See:

Did you purchase it new? If so, the full assembly instructions, including how to assemble and attach the curtains should have been included with the product. If you purchased it new at a bricks and mortar store or through its online site, you should be able to contact the store Customer Service department and ask for a set of assembly instructions.

It seems that Uberhaus is a private label brand name for home products sold by Rona in Canada. If you purchased the sun shelter at a Rona store or the Rona website, this is the link to the Rona Contact Us web page:

I have no idea if you reside in Canada or not. receives questions from people worldwide.

Or, did you purchase the sun shelter second hand without the assembly instructions? I have not yet found the home website for Uberhaus, so you will still need to contact Rona Customer Service and ask if you can purchase a copy of the assembly instructions (PDF downloadable version - Adobe Acrobat Reader software, free, needed; or a print "hardcopy" version.)

Best wishes.

What fabric should you use to make curtains?

Although there is an array of colors and styles to choose from, we recommend picking a darker shade as it will block and reflect maximum sunlight, creating an optimal sleeping solution for you light sleepers out there. The 42-inch curtain comes with 6 grommets. The grommets holes are big enough so that it fits most rods in the market and they also let you slide the window curtains easily. Mind you that each package includes only one panel. So, you might have to order two panels if you have a wide window. Provided the inexpensive price tag, terrific light blocking ability and ease of setting up, that shouldn't pose a problem.

What are blackout curtains used for?

The insulated blackout curtain making it a perfect sleeping solution for baby rooms, office, computer rooms, and bedrooms. Even if your existing panels are not that wide, you can loop one or two extra rings into the grommet to reduce the gap. Cool hack, isn't it? The rings you get with the drapes aren't rust-proof but they are solid enough to get the basic job done. The material, upon touching, is soft and lightweight. However, it is thick enough to prevent harsh sunlight from peeping into the room.

What are the most effective blackout curtains?

Blackout curtain has ability to block light is even more powerful if you opt for a darker shade. The interwoven layers of the drapes are composed of a top fabric layer, a high-density black yarn along with a black fabric layer. These interwoven layers not only enable this drape to efficiently block bright light and noise but it also exudes potent insulation properties. The microfiber coating doubles as a great energy-saving solution by balancing out the room temperature.

Rear curtain won't close fully

It's a sign the mechanism needs a cleaning and lube. Temporarily you might try releasing the shutter ( without a lens mounted ) and locking the release button down. Then CAREFULLY from the back, put a little upward pressure on the metal curtain 1/4 inch or so, to twist the curtain slightly on it's shaft. Don't pull to far or you can do permanent damage. You should have a repair shop take care of it.
