it took 2 of us to put it up because of the leveling, drilling etc. But if push came to shove I think my guy could have handled it on his own. It made our shower curtain look so good because it kind of spread it out more so you can see the design better. We put it in our pink and blue retro bathroom. Looks so good.
Took about 1hr to install with a tape measure, laser level, some hand-made paper templates, a drill and a 1/4" tile hole saw. Used the laser level to line up the templates at the same height on each wall, measuring back from the front of the tile surround with the tape measure. Then I stuck them in place with three small dots of sticky putty (but tape would work fine too), and held the assembled bar in place to ensure nothing was off. After placing the bar aside, I started the holes with the hole saw at a 45° angle respect to the wall on the bottom of the circles I drew in the template, then removed the template and finished the holes. After drilling the holes in the tile, I went back with a 1/4" drill bit to get through any drywall or wood that was immediately behind the tile (be extremely careful, as you could damage the tile doing this), popped in the anchors, and screwed down the curtain rod mounts (careful not to over tighten, as you could strip the anchors or crack the tile). I wasn't sure how well the included anchors would perform in tile, so I purchased a box of 5 from lowes which looked more substantial. Once installed, the two pieces on the wall were rock solid. I had to remove the actual rod to get the inside screw all the way down, but otherwise it was easy. The finish on the rod itself isn't quite as good as on the end pieces, and it moves a bit more than I'd like (but not unexpected, being a two-piece bar mounted in swivels), but for the price it's a good product.
