ONE DIY ‘genius’ said that she is constantly asked how you can hang curtains when renting, without having to drill holes in your wall.
Jennifer has now revealed that indeed this can be done and it is so much easier than you think.
Taking to her TikTok account, Jennifer explained that all you need to ensure your curtains can be hung without damaging your walls is broom grippers.
Posting under the domain @offliveoak she said: “Y’all asked for a renter-friendly way, to hang curtains, well I’ve got it for you.”
“While standing in the 3M command section in Target, I saw these broom grippers, and thought, the diameter of a broom, and the diameter of a curtain rod is the same. So lightbulb moment decided to install these broom grippers horizontally” she added.
Jennifer placed the broom gippers in place of the brackets that come with a curtain rod.

“For my windows, I put up four. To give it a finished look, I made sure I had even amounts of fabric on each side of each gripper before I firmly pushed the rod into place” said Jennifer.
Adding: “This completely hid them and I loved the way it turned out. It’s very secure and sturdy too, I don’t have any fears that this is gonna fall.”
Jennifer’s post has already reached a whopping 2.7 million views in two days, and TikTok viewers have responded in gratitude to the hack.
“I own my house and I’m still gonna do this. I hate hanging curtains” commented one person.
“Take this down immediately. Call 3M and pitch this immediately. I guarantee they will launch this as their new product line in 2022. Go girl!” added another.
A third commented: “Not just for renters…Genius.”
