The item is sturdy and well built - however the finish is very poor. The first set received had the paint chipping and peeling around the screws and wall end of the arm. The second set received had apparently been "dinged" at some point - while the arm was not dented, the paint was peeling and when touched entire flakes would drop off. Returns were easy - but I would not recommend these because of the finish.
I bought these tiebacks to match the curtain rod also sold on Overstock for spare bedroom. The rod was very good quality, these tiebacks are a disaster. The one tieback is ok quality, although the paint is a different finish that the rod, it's less shiny. The other tieback is horrible, the paint is splotchy and is chipped in several places. They came with no hardware or instructions to mount them. Shame on your overstock. Im usually so pleased with your products, but not today.

Very impressed with the curtain holdbacks; they are excellent quality, heavy, solid metal. I bought them to match the Bold Pole Metal Curtain rod and they match perfectly! Couldn't do without them because we pull the curtains back daily to let the sun shine in!

These hold backs are much more convenient than tie backs for drapes when you want to let lots of light in or enjoy the view. Just be sure you allow for the extra width due to the placement of the hold backs outside the window frame when you are choosing the width of both your curtain rod and your drape panels.
I was not aware that the product would not be in new condition. When it arrived it was clear that it had been opened and taped shut again. The hold backs were chipped. This was my first experience with overstock and I will be more careful in the future if I ever order from them again.
I bought these tie back to match the curtain rod. They are wonderful.... strong and beautiful to look at. I have the brass color. After 3 years they are just as shiny and new looking as the first day we installed them. By the way, the curtain rod that matches these tie backs is your best bet for strength if you need something 144" long. The rod also comes with nice brackets to keep the "span" sturdy and all pieces are color matched perfectly.
