This fit perfectly for our application. Keeps the sun out of our Gazebo on the west side when needed. Very easy to install. You can change the pulling cord to either side with slight adjustments ( no directions came for this) If your at all mechanically inclined you can do this. We were able to put two together and make a longer one with a rod on the inside. The first order had a damaged aluminum bent rod from the shipper, and overstock promptly shipped a replacement.
Was looking for something to block the south/west sun from under our pergola while still letting a bit of a breeze through it. This works exactly as needed. It rolls up and down smoothly. Attaches easily and has to sliding rings at the bottom to tie it down to prevent the wind from blowing it around. Can't see through it very well but blocks the hot summer sun which was our primary concern.
These are great. I bought them to shade the sides of my deck where the sun shines so hot that I cannot enjoy sitting outside. They certainly did the job. They shade the sun, but you can still see thru them, so I can keep an eye on the little ones. They look so pretty too.
These sun shades are perfect. I have a covered deck, but the afternoon sun really warms it up in the late afternoon and evening. These shades provide the perfect amount of shade, while still being able to see through them. There is a noticeable difference in temperature when they are down. I bought enough to go around the entire deck and they will come in handy during the late fall/early winter, because they do block some of the breeze. The only negative critique I can give is on the instructions for the device that secures the chain at the bottom. The instructions don't tell you how to allow the chain to roll through this device. It took me forever to realize that there is a little sunken screw that you loosen and this will allow the chain to roll through the device. Other than that, they are very easy to install. This is a great buy. I had previously bought two of these shades on another '*********' site, and they were quite a bit higher. Love the shades and loved the price. Get some before they are gone.
Thin and rather elegant for a sun shade! This did the trick to block glaring, angled late afternoon sun from our covered patio. The shade is particularly nice for us, because it allows for a soft view of the flowering vines behind it, and lets the breeze flow thru, but blocks the heat and glare that previously made suppers on the patio rather uncomfortable. And because it cuts down the direct sun, no doubt out bench cushions will last longer and wont fade as quickly. My gardeners had it up and operational in about 1/2 hour! We prefer to have it completely unrolled, so it falls behind the arched bench that it hangs over. The bottom of the shade has 2 convenient sliding rings in which I have used bungle cords (placed along the vertical back braces of the bench, so not in view) to (lightly) tether it to the back of the bench, so it will not flutter in our soft evening breezes. I put a 6 inch piece of round foam type pipe insulation between the top arch of the bench and the shade, to avoid possible rubbing or stress on the shade from the tether. It is hidden from view, and actually holds the shade out from the back of the bench by about 2 inches. Perfect! In response to a previous review regarding the very large child safety warning tag.....I simply removed it with a seam ripper! No harm, no foul, no children!
Bought these for 2 western exposure bedroom windows - definitely cooler - can still see out.

My son had already mounted, or I would have returned immediately: wrong color (for my paint color which is cocoa), too short to cover, and flimsy. But since already hung I thought I would live with it. Now the bottom rod has come completely off, so shade flips all over the place with any breath of wind. If it wasn't such a hassle, and I still had the container, I would definitely return. As it is a complete wast of money for me. Have liked Overstock very much in my past experiences.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color is BROWN not cocoa
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Bottom rod ripped off within 2 weeks
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Not 72 inches long as described, so any sliding glass door would not be covered
All that I have ordered, has been quality. Just what it said it would be. I am very happy with the product that I ordered. Thank you Overstock.

These were terribly and I am stuck with them. Unfortunately all packaging was thrown away before I came home to see the cheap products and how damaged they were. One came with a rip down the center; the other with a broken chain. Horrible product.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was fine.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very poor quality. One came ripped and the other with the chain broken
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Nothing stated quality, so I guess I got what I asked for.
For the price, I will recommend to my friends. Shipping was prompt and the material itself is good. It was easy to install and it fits perfectly my front porch.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same color as advertised
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. the product is good although the side plastic stopper for the shade is loose
