No. On our preassembled Uprights, CastleTop® slots will sit in the same location as our current industry standard slots. On the retrofit/replacement piece, our instruction sheet shows you exactly where you need to cut it to match your existing slots.

Yes! The ‘V’ slots in CastleTop® are located in the same location as traditional slots in standard Uprights.
Retrofit pieces are sold per unit and include two rivets per CastleTop®, along with an assembly instruction sheet.
The slots in the CastleTop® are open on the top (which makes set-up faster), but there is also a deeper cavity to secure the hook-end in snugly. If knocked over, the drape support could pop out, but it will not tear the slots and damage the Upright like with traditional Pipe and Drape. Many people see this as an advantage that the section will disengage before the entire wall falls.
*CastleTop should never be used where tip-over may cause injury.
Designed for universal use, we have not been able to find Drape Supports on the market that are not compatible with CastleTop®.

We have applied for US and other patent protection - its unique design is currently Patent Pending.
If you purchase CastleTop® preinstalled on an upright, we will still be punching the traditional slot below CastleTop®, so for these special applications, you could run an additional Drape Support directly under the one sitting at the top of the Upright with the additional layer of drape. We also offer the Universal Clamp that can be attached anywhere on the Upright to create a valance placement for an additional layer of drape on the same support.
Where to begin? No more torn slots, no more ripped drape from torn slots, faster set-up, cleaner and “no top bump” drape walls, affordable, one-piece system compatible with your existing inventory, extended product life… the list goes on!
