Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compression Rods These are the 2nd ones I've bought. The first one was destroyed by Hurricane Irma. These really hold up on the pool deck patio area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice enough but... Since this is an item described for outdoor use, I expected a rod that was a bit sturdier. There are screwholes on either end and an included hook for the middle (which was needed to avoid "droop") but had hoped for a heftier rod that would support curtains without using screws and a hook. The extended length was the main reason I purchased this rod otherwise I would have been fine with an inexpensive shower curtain rod. My recommendation is "yes" only for the length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tension rod Tension rods were needed for my new replacement windows in my. back entry way. These fit the bill and are my second purchase of this brand of tension rod. These are more heavy duty than those you can get at discount stores. They are long lasting and well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job Basement bedroom has no door. The door way is slanted not possible to put a door . The rod had to fit across 84" so I could hang a set of curtains across . Really didn't need the holder in the ceiling, but decided to anyway being that the teenager would be pulling the grommet curtains back and forth, opening and closing. It WORKED! He has his privacy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. I purchased 2 of the 30-52" bronze tension curtain rods to suspend some Sunbrella curtains under our deck, to cool the area where our 3 dogs like to be. My husband and myself didn't want to put holes in our Geodeck wrapped support poles for our deck, and this tension rod was just what I was looking for! We did help support the distance between the deck supports with a couple large hooks that were screwed into the wood 2x8 rafters that support the upper deck which was wood, this helps keep the tension rod from ever falling even with the weight of the curtains and the winds etc. These worked perfect, love the bronze color and the available size to fit the distance I needed, excellent purchase!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I needed a longer tension rod than the ones I could find in the store This product looked good and was easy to put up. It included an extra hook for stability and a hidden screw for support both were exactly what I needed.

Did I purchase the right products?

My space is 114" wide; I purchased 2, 52"x90" curtain rods, 4 108" L curtains and 1, rod connector. Will this work?
Asked by: DonnaFran
Hello, with the connector you should not have any issues with the curtain rods. With the sizes you purchased, you should not have to extend the rods but only a few inches to fit tightly. Thank you!

Does this rod sag?

Having read on other sites, that tension rods similar to this one, sagged in the middle, I was wondering if anyone had experienced this? I intend to use them beneath our four poster bed, to hang bed skirts. Thank you.
Asked by: SM51
I used this for outdoor curtains, fairly weighty, and I had to use the included hook to avoid "sag".

Will a grommet panel fit over the ends?

I have a grommet panel with openings of 1 1/2" ~ will these fit over the ends of the pole?
Asked by: LTudor
One of the ends of the rod unscrews so you can easily thread the grommets onto the rod.

Can this be used for a shower rod?

The opening is 77" and the curtain is a sturdy fabric.
Asked by: Deercats
Thank you for your question. This could be used as a shower curtain. We recommend that the curtain not be too heavy.

Outdoor Patio 91"

I would like to use the tension rod on an outside patio, but my patio where I want to hang it is measuring at 91"... the longest rod length you have is 90"... Is there any play in the rod that it would work at 91"? I ask because I won't be able to use the rod connector to connect two rods because there isn't anything to mount the connector to... the rod will be about 6 inches below the actual ceiling... Am I correct that the connecting piece is to be mounted to the ceiling? Any other products you can recommend?
Asked by: LBoll80
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately this rod does not have any play in it beyond the 90". The tension stop in the rod is at this point. Improvements, however does have a Outdoor Curtain Rod that will allow for "inside mount installation" and extends at 52" to 100". It comes in stainless steel and antique brown finish. Please look up sku # 392919 for reference of this item on the Improvements website.
