I purchased this double rod set because it was suppose to extend 144 inches, and at that, it fails. There is simply not enough rod at the unions to extend 144 inches without sagging and becoming unstable. This bowing is particularly bad with the shorter inner rods (which are two sets, connected at the center, not a long bar like the main rod). I had to purchase copper tubing from a big-box home improvement store, use spray paint, and use that half-inch piping (secured with clear silicone on the inside) to firm both smaller/inner bars.
The kit supplied to secure the bars to the wall is also a joke. While you're at the home improvement store you'll want to buy some real anchor bolts / self-securing drywall screws. The plastic inserts provided may be sufficient if you're only hanging two sets of sheer curtains.
Parts were missing from the adjustable section. I ended up not putting the adjustable sections in until over a year later, so I don't feel comfortable enough to ask for a return or new item on this. If I had bought this in a brick & mortar I would feel fine about walking in to see if they would just give me the couple pieces missing. Lesson learned, I'll buy local on these type of items next time.

I bought the double rod set 11 months ago because it stated that it extends to 144in. That may be true for the front larger drapery rod....but not for the sheer's rod. Our window is 128 inches & the rods are set 134inches apart. The middle bracket is at 67in. At least once a month one of the sheer rods falls in half. (yes I do pull the sheers back so they just aren't sitting there). And they are already beginning to sag, I wish I was more handy to figure out a way to extend them with a separate pole, but haven't (and really, I shouldn't if the product states they extend 144inches)
Our second set is on a window that is only 100in across & we have never had a problem with that set.

The product arrived with the larger pole bent and the ends scratched up and rusty. Unfortunately, I didn't open the box completely until a few months after I received it (because I didn't have access to a drill to install it until then). My mistake for not checking thoroughly when I received it. But I'm still really disappointed that an item with so much damage would be sent to a customer.

The product description is misleading. The window I was trying to fit is exactly 144" wide, so I needed a double pole that would extend that far. The product comes with a main pole, which does extend to 144" inches, but the double pole feature is obtained by using 2 "add-a-rod" pieces that extend up to 70" apiece, therefore only allowing for 140". We ended up using the curtain rod and just shortening in on the window, because it was the only curtain rod long enough I could find anywhere, stores or online. Overall, it worked out OK, but the description is misleading.

First of all they sag. I have lined silk curtains and after a month they started to sag between the rods (and I'm using two center rod brackets. Secondly the rubber gaskets which hold the rods together are very cheaply made. I'm using 2 inch loop rings (anything smaller won't move) and they get caught up every tine they hit one of the joints. I've partially solved the problem by putting 6 inch strips of Teflon tape over the rod at the joint points.
I debated rating this as "fair" as the delivery method is quite risky and for a rod this long, the three support pieces are not sufficient, it's too long of a span between supports. The long box isn't cushioned with those plastic pillows filled with air, so our first rod arrived crimped at one, crushed in transit, so one end of the two rod halves was oval instead of circular. Luckily, we were able to send it back and get a replacement, but the replacement arrived with the top section also dented in, we were very fortunate to find both rod halves still circular, but I think that was a close call. This may not be a problem for the curtain rods that are shorter, where the box is not that much longer relative to it's width, so slenderness ration would be less.
The span length between supports is simply to great for too few supports, we had to MacGyver another support in, luckily the curtains when closed cover this, but not so much when open. Since this span length is so much greater than the next smaller size span length, the manufacturers should be realistic about the span length between supports, and also I don't think this rod will make it to 144 inches, as it is we barely have any overlap and are spanning 130 inches.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The pewter finish is a bit duller than the picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fine but shipment may easily be crimped in transit and not enough supports between the long spans of the rod
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Good except I don't think one can span 144inches with this rod
The product meant my needs and looks beautiful in my home. The thick rod and the red curtains really make a statement as you enter the house. The bold and thick black rod look expensive but in actually they were moderately priced.
