5min Van Divider




Introduction: 5min Van Divider

About: Currently splitting time between college, work, Army, and my own studio. My interests range the full spectrum, but is always willing to help.

Trying to camp in a van? Need a break from the kids?

How about a privacy curtain?

Using three command hooks, string/twine, and a shower curtain; you're almost done!

Step 1: Attach the Anchor Points

Stick the adhesive on the hooks, then on any secure plastic paneling around the driver and passenger seat

It's a good idea to clean the areas off before applying the adhesive sticker

Adding another anchor point above the console adds stability and height to the curtain

Step 2: Thread the Curtain

Thread the twine or string between every hole, in a weaving manner, so the curtain folds nicely and slides along the length easier.

Step 3: String It Up

Tie the twine to one anchor point, loop it over the center anchor point (if applicable) then tie it tight over the last hook.

Tying a perfect loop on one end can make it easier to string up and take down

    Great idea. I'm going to use Command hooks, 2 to each side, one at the driver and passenger panel, one at the rear passenger light. Cross the strings, instead of just tying it to the front console. That's the plan.

    My van has metal "walls" and I use clip magnets to achieve the same thing. The only issue is that the magnets could damage the paint. You can cover them with a thin fabric to avoid this. Definitely a good thing to have when camping for a myriad of reasons!
