Default Drapery carrier for rear curtain

My wife is trying to make new curtains for the rear window of our bird. Does anyone know where to get the small plastic carriers that go in the track? As we have a rear bedroom coach, the track is 92" wide so it would be hard to replace it. She is pretty handy at sewing so is hoping to make one herself, but need those clips. Any other ideas or successful modifications would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

I think the hardware is Kirsch. (Kirsch.com). I was able to get a few additional plastic sliders at a place here in Salt Lake City known as "State Trailer Supply" (They are a big supply house for Travel Trailers, 5th-Wheels and Motorhomes). State Trailer isn't cheap, but they usually have a much better selection than places like Camping World.

Someone has posted link for the round plastic sliders before. I think it was Camping World that had them.

Default Drapery Repair

We had a problem with the plastic feet coming off our rear drapes as a result of age and sun exposure. We purchased some replacements that come with an elastic loop that can be sewn to the bottom of the drape. They fit the existing track and provided some lan-yap so the sewing tolerances weren't so close as on the original. Source of these was Curtain-Tracks.com located in Bellaire, Texas. We used RECMAR T Glides w/elastic that were originally designed for Airstream installs. We got them for $5/bag of 14. They have been in for a year now and are working well.
