I ordered 2 differnt curtain rods from Overstock.com. I liked the other brand. This one was extraordinarily cheaply made. First of all, I ordered the white ball. When the rod arrived, the white balls had rust ingrained into the white ball. I tried to get it off and ended up scratching it. It never did come off. Next the white ball fell off before I even was able to install it. This rod is very cheap. Stay away. There are other ones out there that are better and not much more expensive.
They are not very sturdy. they need to be a bit heavier to hold the weight of 2 panels.

I'm not recommending this to anyone else, because I don't like the way the mounting bracket attaches to the wall. It's a two piece unit, that screws together. I'm not sure if it tells this in the description part of the page, and if it does, I would have given second thoughts about it. The other thing I haven't figured out is the screw on the end of the rod. My shipping box didn't come with any instructions, so I am going to leave it like it is. They are strong rods and will support some heavy curtains. The brackets have two screws, with slots that mount to the wall, so you can adjust the height distance. The screws that hold the brackets together, are in itself a little strange. One screw won't allow the bracket to move, but the other one has a slot. So unless a light comes on over my head, I see no way for it to be able to slide in or out.
This is the second curtain rod of this type that I bought and I really enjoy them both. They are very good quality for a great price. I bought the square ones for my living room and liked them so much I also bought them for my bedroom. I love the style and they do what they are built for, holding up the curtain.

For the price, I really wasn't expecting much. However, these rods are very sturdy. There is plenty of hardware to make sure the rods are secure. I have not experienced any sagging, even over very wide windows. The actual hanging was pretty simple. The directions could have been simpler. They were just a small write up on the back of the package, but over all the experience was pretty straight forward. I received all of the hardware, anchors, and extras that were needed to complete my project. The finished product is lovely. I hung these rods throughout the main floor of my home and I could not be happier.
