I had my drapes hanging for over a year ,. But was always careful not to put any weight on them for cleaning them. From the beginning I could tell the curtain rod I had wasn't heavy duty and I was always worried that the weight of those drapes would pull down the rod. it did., when i wasn't watching my feet and stepped against the wall it was enogh pressure to snap thhe rod off and break the center piece. The anchors were left in the wall and when I looked closely the wall mounts weere heavy PLASTIC! This rod its teully meant for the heavier type of drapes
These rods allowed me to hang the curtain panels that pulled all of the design elements into focus in a room where I had no way of using traditional rods. The "dummy" panels look just as though I have open drapes flanking the wall of glass. Perfectly frames the view without a lot of distracting heavy fabric or metal.
The second rod is weak, and if you want the main drapes to be hung by grommets, or wide curtain rings, there won't be enough space between the two rods. Also, despite what the picture shows, this price does not include curtain rings or metal 'tie backs'. Had i know this i wouldn't have purchased this set.
