Hold up one of your smaller panels to determine the positioning of your top Velcro. Curtains are SIDE mounted to some top surface "UP" from the lower edge of that surface typically from 1-3". You just need to determine WHERE such that the bottom of the curtain overlaps the floor by about an inch or so, but according to YOUR preference. Peel and stick the adhesive-backed Velcro® horizontally across your top attachment surface. If it doesn't stick well (rough cut wood or stained surfaces), reinforce the adhesive Velcro with a staple gun. The top surface is your most important attachment surface (good 'ol gravity). Velcro® tape helps to keep the curtains aligned. It is a pretty strong hold in the middle of the panel but weak at the two ends that will require marine snaps (below).
Elastic cord acts as a rib that braces the curtain in the wind. Elastic cords are often place where panels turn a corner but can be placed anywhere to add significant stability to your panels. Fasten the provided D-rings above the panel and below (typically into floor). The cord is NOT fastened to the panel itself in any way. Elastic cords are particularly important if you have a panel that straddles a corner taking a path INSIDE the column. In this case the cord acts as a false column giving the panel something to go around to maintain a crisp corner.
