I purchased this item because of the size and price but have realized that it was not worth it. I purchased this item in June for a bathroom makeover and didnt install it until Mid July and by the end of November (4 months later). The hardware that holds the rod up is completely rusting and is now passing onto the rod. I contacted Overstock to be told that theres no warranty on this item and they cant provide me with the manufacturer's info ( i wanted to see if I could buy a replacement part). Save yourself money & time and invest in something better!
We purchased a 6' tub and were having trouble finding a rod that was long enough, with out having to spend around $100. After reading others reviews we thought this would be perfect & it was. We had to cut it down a few inches, but that was very easy to do. I would recommend this if you need a longer rod than the standard sizes available.
I searched many, many sites looking for a curved shower rod to fit a 6 1/2' tub area and this was the one! Be sure to consider which side of the tub you want the stationary section to be attached. And, best of all the extra room it provdes is fabulous!
We are rehabbing a home we purchased and ordered this for the single bathroom. Somehow I ordered this too long version for our standard tub size. As the rehab was off schedule, I missed the time to exchange it for a smaller size and am now stuck with this rod that has no use to us. Next time, I will order from Home Depot or some local site so that I can return it if wrong.
One mounting bracket was not squared up to the rod, instructions could be better. It tells you to drill a 3/16" hole for the anchors which are 5/16". Kind of hard to get something that is 5/16 into a 3/16 hole. It could also use some kind of a locking devise on the short end for a little bit added support.
This rod was NOT one gentle curve as the picture shows. It was straight for about 10 inches, then the curve in the middle, and straight the last 10 inches on the other end. So it really didn't work for the jetted tub we wanted to enclose with a curtain. However, we were able to return it.
ordered this rod feb 2 2012 to my relatives address in Ohio since there is a ridiculous shipping price for canadian residences way over a hundred dollars...anyway visited my family just a few days ago and picked up the rod ... box was totally intact and unopened, when i got home(back in canada) opened the box up and wow...bar had no mounting hardware, bar had deep gouges on the front curved part, dented on the bends, end plates are tacked on by welds, overall JUNK!!! Never will I buy anything from here!!! Not able to return because of over the 30 days and I KNOW i will get the run around from these people about it!!...spent over $56 dollars for a very poor quality piece of pipe!!!
Sent this and it took forever to get, then it was missing parts so I couldnt use it for the holidays. They gave me some BS about shortage of people and ALL KINDS OF EXCUSES> This is the 2nd time I have had problems, I wont be ordering from them anymore. It was the pits the BS emails I kept getting from them, excuses and more excuses/
Well it's only been up a week, Installation was easy. Had to cut off both inner and outer rods to fit. Rod seems sturdy, thicker metal than others i have seen. The mounting brackets are a little off chrome color where there are welded to rods, but barely noticeable. Worked well.So happy to have found this. But too early to tell if it will rust. Hope not! Other than the OUTRAGEOUS Shipping costs, which was more than the rod cost. Good Product.
The rod was delivered by ups. I opened the box and found that the adjustable mounting plate was off. I grabbed my welder and rewelded it. No problems but if you don't have a welder then it can be a problem. But the look and product I would recommend to everyone.
I thought this curved shower rod was a great idea for our bathroom and would provide more room in the shower while showering. The issue I had, that I did not previously think about, that a curved shower rod takes a lot of space out of the room itself being that it curves outward. The tub being right near a vanity, didn't provide enough space. Unfortunately, by the time we remodeled the bathroom, it was too late to return this one. Just something for buyers to think about - quality was good though.
