Take your window treatments to the next level with this decorative 90-inch adjustable curtain rod. Made with a rich, luxurious finish, the rod features elegant finials and expands from 48 to 90 inches, so you can create the perfect fit....more
One problem is that the ends are quite large and if you must install them in a cramped amount of space you may find the ends bumping each other if you have adjoining windows. We have angled windows and that happened to us. Not a great result but a temporary fix for the winter. Another problem is that the mounts are too long so that the curtains do not touch the walls. Drafts can definitely come around the sides and top of the curtains. If the mounts were shorter, more air could be blocked. The sections of rod do slide together beautifully. One had a few minor scratches. If you like the bulkiness of the style and don't have to mount them right next to each other on more than one window, these are fine to get. We bought these in the long and short versions. Only one package had a defective screw which was mangled but otherwise all the hardware was in good shape.
I bought these curtain rods for a large living room. The ends are a large 2" diameter, so you would want a larger sized room for this look. I also bought the longer curtain rod for my sliding glass window and without the middle support the rod sags just slightly with the curtains. The 48" to 90" rod supports just fine and doesn't sage in the middle even with the curtains closed. The end round balls are made of plastic but you can't really tell unless you touch them. I also bought the half round curtain tie backs and love the look they give the window.

How accurate was the on site description of the product? the product review is accurate
I've used these rich, dark brown color rods for 42" windows and recently purchased two of the 144" wide. They are not flimsy!
The widest rod works as well with the draperies as the 42". Since the rods come with supports, there is no difficulty in holding the144" length firmly when the draperies are hanging. The price is a third what I would pay for a similar look.. I'm ordering two more of this widest size for another room.
Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes

I was nervous given some of the negative reviews, but I was extremely pleased with these rods especially for the price. They are metal, not plastic. They do expand to a larger width without sagging. I'd buy these again without hesitation.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? right on
Please tell us about the quality of the product. very pleased with quality of rod - very sturdy and look amazing
How accurate was the on site description of the product? very good
Happy with the quality, design and color of these rods (got the brown ones). Only issue, the rod is in 3 pieces and making the curtains slide on the rod can be challenging. It's definitively not smooth. That works for me as my curtains are not intented to be opened and closed every day.

This is a great, heavy duty (larger) curtain rod set (has all parts).
Perfect for a log cabin, which is where they are going. Color is lovely dark bronze. We don't care that decorative ends are plastic...don't look like it from a distance & more lightweight. As far as ridge where rods fit together...we just put silicone tape over it & colored with marker. Great set for the price :))) !!!
What is the 'clearance' distance between 'back' of the rod and the wall? Looking for a double rod set with enough clearance to hang neatly out beyond existing shades hung outside of the window opening.okiejoe7 on Dec 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Can the curtain be looped straight over/through the rod (if it has the fabric slots), or will I need to buy the (circular) hardware rings?jennaehunger on Nov 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Are these rods suitable for "outside" use? Inside a covered patio, for instance? Many thanks, Janet.jintyoo7 on Aug 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I would say probably so. Because they are so reasonably priced, you are safe to put up and if/when they do wear out or weather they are easy to replace. They are a very dark color so they may show dustphoenixgirl123 on Aug 22, 2013
No. They are a good quality in a controlled enviornment. If you put them outdoors in the elements, the moisture result in rust and loss of the finish.emmahn on Oct 9, 2013
Hi my3children, we were able to verify this information with our support team. The 48-90" Bold Pole is made up of 3 pipes. Two side pipes extend from the main center pipe. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Jun 4, 2013
I want to find a rod that I can use on a patio door and pull the curtains to one side. Most rods have a center bracket and does not allow this. Do you have a rod that would work for me. Thanks for your help.mlsmithins on May 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I bought the rod set that expands to 244 inches. Which what they do is send you two rods and you are suppose to combine them in to one. I put it up on my window and because my window is so wide I had to use the center bracket. But, most patio doors are not as wide as my windows I'm pretty sure. If it is the standard patio door, you can get away with buying on of these longer rods and not installing the center bracket. That's my opinion. I haven't tried it so I can't guarantee that that would work. But it is work a try. These rods are really nice for the price.vanmon on May 19, 2013
I need rods that extend anywhere from 140-160" each. My challenge is that the middle 4' of my regular windows do not have anyplace to mount hardware as there's a 4' wide half-moon transom centered above my windows.
1) Can I securely mount two center brackets about 50-60" off the exact middle (25-30" from each side)?? ; and, if yes, than
2) Do you have Bypass Brackets that will allow C Rings to split to the two side ends of the rod?mythreegirlz on Apr 30, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you mythreegirlz for allowing us to help you with your questions about the Bold Pole 48 to 90-inch Adjustable Curtain Rod Set. Now I found a curtain rod, product number 13129992. It is identical to the one you asked about only it is a curtain rod that spans 144 to 240 inches. That should be long enough for that. Now the Transom window in the middle should have enough room for some sort of support to be mounted to it for the rod support and if it does not and you need to put a couple of off set supports then that should work as well. The large rod comes with enough supports to acomidate this need. Now we do not carry a bypass bracket that you are wanting to use but if you go to one of the 2 big hardware stores,(I can't name them but you know who I am talking about) they carry the bypass bracket you will need. We hope this helps and I appreciate being able to learn a little more today about windows so thank you. Thank you for your business and shopping at Overstock.com. Have a great day.overstockcustomercare1 on May 8, 2013
I saw this question posted previously but didn't see the answer--and I would like to know the answer, as I'm considering buying it for a sliding glass door (78" wide) as well: What is the weight that this bracket can hold w/out using the center bracket? [I want to use this for the extra-wide blackout curtain over a sliding glass door (76" wide), and want the entire curtain to slide to one side.]bapgyrl on Apr 15, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us bapgyrl. We do not recommend using this rod without the center bracket. The standard is that rods extended over 72" should have the center brackets mounted, but it may be okay.The two brackets can handle the weight but the center of the rod may sag. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

I did 5 feet without a center support. It is a bit unstable. I am careful when I close the curtains. I would not go any longer than the 60 inches without the support.dakotanurse on Apr 21, 2013

The question below about how far out from a wall do the brackets hold the rod was not really answered. Are you saying the bracket itself is adjustable, or does the bracket hold the rod only in a fixed position, e.g., 4 inches from the wall?sascha09 on May 21, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The Bold Pole brackets are adjustable between 3.5 inches to 5.5 inches from the wall.overstockcustomercare1 on May 23, 2012

How many inches out from wall do brackets hold the rod? on Mar 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The curtain hardware is adjustable from 48 inches to 90 inches long. So it just depends on how close you prefer it to be, and the dimensions of your wall. It can vary per installation due to different wall dimensions and window placement.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 26, 2012
