The diameter of these rods are actually .5 (1/2 inch) not .625 which would be 5/8 of an inch. Bid difference in strength on something like this. Don't expect good craftsmanship on these as they are made in China. The lock washer supplied for attachment to the bracket wouldn't let the bottom finial tighten at all and prevented it from going on straight. I replaced them with a nylon washer which seemed to do the job. Had to bend 3 of the 4 I purchased as they hung out of level although the brackets were perfectly plumb and level.
This worked well for my french doors. My only suggestion when you hang is to put a little angle on it so they angle up a little. Once you hang the curtain they will sag a little from the weight so to counter that - hang them with a little angle up to make them level. Other than that - worked perfectly and got a lot of compliments
I had a window that was not uniform on both sides, so this worked very well. I was able to mount one side up next to the wall and another side on the window frame. I had a pair of cotton priscillas, and they worked well with the curtain.
I was looking for swing curtain rods for my new apartment. After checking out all the possible styles and prices, these were by far the best deal. They are perfect for 'framing' my windows with some color and fabric, while leaving me plenty of viewing of the spectacular water and hills outside!
We ordered this item but received someone else's order for something else ten days later. We sent that item back and were told our item is now out of stock. Had they sent the correct item the first time we would have what we had ordered. Now we have to find it somewhere else.
We had to hang curtain panels over a triple hung window with a triple transom window over it. There was no space to hang a full rod across the window, plus we didn't want to cover up the beautiful windows. The swing arm rods were the perfect solution. They're made of a quality metal in a rich pewter color. They were easy to install with one caveat, the screws that come with the item are not of a good quality and strip easily. That's the only reason I gave the item 4 stars for quality instead of 5. I also like that they come in a pair and the price is so right! I wanted to order another pair but sadly they're currently out of stock.
