After installing Curtain on Rod type curtains, if you feel tough to move curtains, you may need to try out installing the Grommet Kit, and here are some benefits:

1. Smoother for SwitchBot Curtain to push/pull drapes.

2. Work more efficiently.

Grommet Kit Installation can make "incompatible" Rod curtain drapes work well:

As for the Grommet Kits, you need to install them with the plastic strip pulling as tight as possible. Try to reduce the number of the plastic hole between two plastic clips. See the picture below.

(In the picture, only leave 3 holes between each plastic clip so the Grommet Kits is installed pretty tight. Also, the Grommet Kits is recommended to install on the inner fold of the curtain drape so it will be invisible looking from the bottom up.)

When it is installed correctly, the eyelet on the curtain drape would always be staying in a relative verticle position to the rod. So when you open or close the curtain drape, it will fix the "stuck problems".
