We had an idea to use curtains to cover a closet with filing cabinets. The doors wouldn't allow us to open the drawers on the files so curtains were our answer and with an odd opening, a rod wasn't going to do it. But this spring rod was exactly perfect! Thanks. And to top it off....it was extremely easy and high quality. We put up the center hook but actually, it is only precautionary as the rod really held well without it.
This tension rod works very well and is a solidly built. I didn't need to use the enclosed center support, but one is included with the rod for heavier applications. I didn't use the screws to mount the rod either, but they would make this even stronger for heavy curtains or applications that require more stability (around children, curtains moved frequently, etc)
Really great!!! I live in an apartment building and we aren't allowed to put up "rods' ourselves, "they" charge to have the maintenance put up approved (aka...buy from them😞) curtain rods...I can put these up....no nails/screws ,or damage to walls...a BIG plus is I can take them with me when I leave!!!!😂 (Anything attached has to stay---)
We needed a long adjustable spring tension rod for 4 single panels of light curtains and 4 panels of sheers behind them, all grommets so it was easy to combine the 4 sets on the same rod. We put this rod over an archway in a hallway so it went from wall to wall (88"). We didn't use the screw mount, just the middle bracket for security and twisting the tension rod until it was very tight. It's been 3 weeks now and neither the rod nor the 8 total panels haven't moved at all. Very nice look, modern and attractive. I would highly recommend this product.
The idea is a great one. However. you really have to put the rod in tightly. It seems to "unwind" over time. Since we have a SleepNumber bed, it is the best solution we could come up with. The "skirt" I chose is very light weight since I had to use two panels per side. The skirt weight is fine. It is just this propensity to unwind that occasionally is annoying, but no big deal.
We purchased this for a sliding glass door that was about 67" wide. It works fine for light panels and is stable. You have to be conscious of the weight of the fabric if you want to use the tension setting instead of installing hardware because of the possible need for middle support. But the tension function is working well two months after installation. We placed two panels on it for coverage and can gently open and close them with our hand.
This rod is fabulous. I purchased some time ago with in this year and it is does use the spring tension as the plastic ones do from the Dollar Store.No problem with it at all and has held up nicely. I have 2 grandchildren ages 8 and 9 who use the shower and they have not pulled it down.I chose not to skrew it the wall as I have all new tile up. This is perfect for any shower!
