Q: What kind of screwdriver is needed?

  • A: The rod has one piece inside the other piece. You slide the pieces to the length needed. There is a small metal piece with a screw that stabilizes and locks the length of the rod. The screw is tightened with a phillips or flat blade screwdriver. I,ve also used a kitchen table knife and think a small coin such as a dime might work.

    submitted byShelly H - 6 years ago

  • A: I have found that when you are at the end of the size range, it's better to go up a size. If you don't, the rod will sag in the middle since there isn't enough metal overlap to support the curtain weight. I would buy the larger size based on my experience.

Decent rod

3 out of 5 stars
mary0612 - 1 month ago, Verified purchaser
Ok once you figure out how big you need rod. Not a regular tension rod, you need a screwdriver to loosen screw. Then you have to figure out sizing, slide the spring to other part of rod & tighten the screw to keep it in place. Easier to use original type of tension rod that is 1 pc that unscrews to size. Seems sturdy.

NJbaker - 2 months ago
This curtain rod was completely useless. First time trying to install it and it bent in the center under the tension. I followed the instructions to the letter. I thought maybe it needed to be loosened a bit so I took it down and as I did the metal tore through the protective plastic ends, leaving big scratches on my wall. Don't waste your time with this flimsy junk.

mash - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
The screw had basically no give so it was difficult to compress properly to get in the doorframe. The system the screw keeping the spring in place is just janky in general. I accidentally stepped on the curtain, which brought it down, no big deal (though that means it wasn’t holding in place REAL well), but when it fell, the spring just went flying out and now I can’t find it. Not the fault of the rod that it fell or that I can’t find the spring, but I don’t think it should have fallen out of there so easily. Even at this cheap price, it’s not worth it.

When I read the reviews I was a little reluctant to purchase these and thought about a much more expensive option. Luckily I decided to try it and DIDNOT experience any of the problems others did. It wasn’t difficult (yes you need a Philips head screw driver but it was easy to install and looks exactly how I envisioned on our French doors. I purchased the 63 inch light filtering white (2 panel) curtains by room essentials as well and I think it gives us the privacy we needed without a curtain hanging in the way. I would recommend both these products if you are thinking of doing the same. .

the WORST tension rod

Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
Cathy - 7 months ago
I purchased several of these tension rods for my new apartment and was only able to make one successully work. Instead of your traditional tension rod, you essentially have to tighten a screw connected to a spring rod in order to create the tension. BUT it must be in the exact correct spot and not over or under extended in order to create the right amount of tension for the rod to stay. Confused? So was I after spending at least an hour trying to hang curtains. Would not recomend at all, probably would have been easier to just install a regular curtain rod.

JT - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
Much more complicated to set up than regular tension rods. It tells you to set the spring stopper where the bar is 1" wider than the opening you're putting it on. The spring does not actuall compress, it more bends inside the tube and definitely doesn't compress a full inch. The oval shape and overlapping bars caught the curtain and made it difficult to open and close. Curtain kept catching and threatening to tear.
