Pleater Rods Please refer to the Order Form for Prices
Our Pleater Rods are constructed from the finest hardwood dowels available in North America.
Each rod is sprayed with two layers of protective coating and then sanded to a silky smooth finish.
We offer four variations or styles of pleater rods: Standard Size Rods, Select-a-Size Rods, Travel Size Rods and the Select-a-Size Trio. (*Note: In all offerings, other lengths are available upon request, more than just those photographed. Feel free to inquire.)

Standard Rods are solid, one piece rods which come in lengths of 12, 18, 24 or 36 inches*. See Fig. 1

Select-a-Size Rods are equipped with a connecting pin covered by a removable safety cap at one end and a receptive port at the other end. They come in lengths of 12, 18, 24 or 36 inches*. Choose two or more rods as you might need. See Fig. 2

These features enable “Select-a-Size” rods to be connected together so longer lengths can be created. Simply remove the safety cap from the end of one rod exposing the connecting pin. Gently slide that pin into the receptive port of another rod.

This eliminates the inconvenience and problem of storing or transporting long cumbersome pleater rods.
The connecting feature is very strong, stable and versatile. (Example: connecting the 12, 18 and 24 inch “Select-a-Size” rods together will create a pleater rod of approximately 51½ inches in length. Other combinations will produce various lengths: 12 + 18, 12 + 24, 12 + 36, 18 + 18, 18 + 24, 18 + 36 etc.)

Travel Size Rods come in lengths of 12, 18, 24 or 36 inches*. See Fig. 3. Each set consists of two rods of equal length. Each rod is equipped with a connecting pin covered by a removable safety cap at one end and a receptive port at the other end.
To use, simply remove the safety cap from the end of one rod exposing the connecting pin and gently slide that pin into the receptive port of the other rod.
The “Travel Rod” feature makes it very convenient and easy to travel with and store your pleater rod. At approximately half the size of a standard pleater rod you can carry your “Travel Rod” virtually anywhere, in your pocket, handbag, briefcase or luggage. See Fig. 3A & B
(Note: All “Travel Size” pleater rods are “Select-a-Size” compatible.)
