I have a rental house where it isn't practical to install a tub surround, so I bought a track to suspend several shower curtains to create an enclosure. Not ideal, but it's the best I could come up with. I bought the track assembly from IKEA. It's extremely clever and well made---which is the problem. The tolerances are needlessly close and the assembly is exceptionally complicated.
I got it together and installed, but I don't think it's going to work. The little plastic things (neoprene, I'd guess) that the hooks for the shower curtain curtain go into have tiny wheels that are supposed to run inside a track in the aluminum frame. The tolerance is so close that some of them wouldn't even go into the track easily. I know that if they won't slide easily one at a time by hand, they're sure not going to move as a group while being pulled by the shower curtain.
Widening the opening of the track won't work---the little wheels fit over rails inside the open edges. Can anyone suggest a lubricant that won't damage neoprene or aluminum, and can survive the climate created by hot showers?
