As usual my order arrived well-packed with all hardware and simple instructions. What a terrific drapery rod! I've gone to these exclusively and am absolutely satisfied. (I purchased the brushed nickel finish) Easy installation. Sturdy manufacture. I use mine (I have 4 rods in 2 sizes) with grommet top lines drapery panels to make opening and closing a breeze. The combination of grommet panels with this rod style lends a modern industrial look to any room. Highly recommended.
The rod is very nice with my velvet drapes, the traverse rings allow the curtain to pleat nicely on the tops...remember when you are hanging your rod that you take into account the 1 1/2" - 2" or so difference from rod height to wear your drapes hook onto the clip...your drapes will be hanging that much lower, so when you install your rod make sure to put it up higher. I have a large window and needed the full extension of the rod, you will definetly have to purchase additional traverse rings if your panels are going to be longer than the shortest measurement of the rod.
We purchased the 66 to 120 inch rod to run curtains across two windows. I knocked 1 star off the rating because this size does not come with color options - you get black; that's it. I would have preferred bronze to better match the decor and fixtures of the room. This size does come with a center support. This rod is good for light- or medium-weight curtains (we have medium); personally, I wouldn't attempt to hang heavy-weight drapes from it. The rod installed easily and wraps nicely around the ends, so if you need to block out pesky sunlight in the early morning, this rod should work well for you.
