Where should curtain holdbacks be placed? Tip. As a general rule, holdback hardware should be mounted anywhere from halfway up the window to one-third of the way up from the bottom of the window. A higher position allows for more fullness in the top part of the curtain, and a lower position creates more fullness at the bottom.

How high should curtain holdbacks be? To achieve proper placement, again measure the length of the curtains and divide by three. Hang each tieback a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain. If, for example, the drape is 100 inches long, you would place the tieback 33 inches from the bottom.
