End stop for curtain track?

My flat has built-in curtain track along the ceiling - I think it's a fairly standard thing in Switzerland? I've found the right curtain hooks for it, they all slide in from square hole in the track at one end, but can't work out how to stop them all dropping out again when I open the curtains. I assume there's some kind of stopper hook available but it's not in the packs of standard hooks. Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can buy them? Thanks.

You can get them in the curtain accessories department of any of the DIY stores.
(Jumbo, COOP bau and hobby, Hornbach, Migros do it etc)

Glad you found them. Another tip for you, sometimes you might want to install a stop at the end to stop all the hooks from falling out, and then another one between the second to last and last hook. This will stop you from pulling the drapes too far if you have more than one panel.

Re: End stop for curtain track?

kept forgetting to buy the stoppers, so I finally just put a piece of clear tape over the slot.

Re: End stop for curtain track?

And here I had been using tape this entire time.

The tape (painter's tape) works, but it eventually weakens from being smashed into by the curtain hooks.

I figured there must be some kind of stopper out there, so thanks for all the info. here.
