My husband installed this handsome rod; just had to cut off 1/2 inch for a perfect fit. Hardware includes strong anchor bolts. One piece style lets rings slide back & forth smoothly; no more catching in the middle. That was so annoying! And the bowed style makes the shower more roomy. Bonus: the flange covers really add a touch of class to this rod.

I was concerned that it was an adjustable rod, but there are no seams visible, so you can't even tell; looks like a custom. The rod is very sturdy and looks great. Bathroom project almost done; one more coat of paint to go!

Such a smart invention
I just renovated my bathroom and purchased a curved bathtub. It uses the same amount of floor space but gives extra space while taking a bath. Regardless of whether or not you have a curved tub, I love the idea of a curved shower rod to avoid having the shower curtain cling to you in the shower. Wish I was the inventor, such a simple idea that I'm sure made the inventor very rich!
The white shower rod cover was very reasonable in price and easy to trim to fit the shower rod. It protects the rod and makes it easier to slide the shower curtain. I wasn't so sure what the size range meant, but it fit our shower rod with no problem.

NOT JUST FOR SHOWERS
THESE THINGS ARE AWESOME! OK, so let me just say they need to change the description or name on these because if you're looking for them to cover up old, worn looking closet rods they're difficult to find!
I love old homes and have used these in every one we've had to freshen up the look of the wooden closet rods. They cover up the scrapes an dark metal marks made over the years. I just put the crease in the back where you don't see it (the rods are usually a little fatter than these plastic

This shower curtain rod cover works great. It covered an old shower curtain rod that was permanently installed. It is easily cut and trimmed down to the size you need. The shower curtain rings glide easily across this rod. This is the second time I have purchased something like this. The first one I purchased has worked for almost 20 years. It was a different brand but looks the same as this one.
GREAT PRODUCT. SOLID ONE PIECE CHROME SHOWER ROD IS HARD TO FIND. NOT CARRIED IN STORE, REQUIRED INTERNET ORDER. SHIPPED TO HOME AND WELL PROTECTED IN PACKAGING.

Finally found straight shower rod not expandable
Finally found a straight shower rod that is not expandable. The single rod eliminates the curtain getting caught at the seam like a 2 piece rod. I also purchased the decorative chrome flanges to eliminate seeing the screw heads. It also matched well with the chrome fixtures in the bathroom.

Very Nice - Also Purchased the Decorative Flanges
Although there is a set of Flanges that come with the shower rod, I bought the decorative set and am very pleased with how everything turned out. This is very attractive - nice bright chrome. I replaced a rod that was metal, but dull and spotty.
I like these shower rings. They hold both the liner and the curtain. Keeping them a bit seperated, so they hang nicely.Do not stick together, so dry well.
Also slide along the rod,
Do not know if they will rust or not.,.

I'm almost embarrassed to admit how much I love this shower rod. The color and finish is beautiful. It looks high quality because it is, and gives my bathroom a refined look it was lacking before. The curvature gives a few extra inches (up to 7, depending where you install it) while showering. Installation is a two person job but my Dad and I handled it without much fuss. After reading some reviews about the installation hardware being "cheap plastic" I was impressed with how sturdy the rod is

I ordered the shower curtain rod in Chrome and picked it up at the store. Installation was very easy. You can adjust the length as needed. It is also very sturdy. I've had it for over a month and it is still hanging strong and looks great! There's more elbow room in the shower just like at the hotel. You will not be disappointed if you buy this.
Installed this today by myself. Could not find the directions anywhere in the box, so attempted to just install. How hard could it be? lol turns out next to impossible. You really need the directions (which are printed on the back of the box). This is not an intuitive thing to put up as one might think. You have to pop off the end caps which almost feels like you are going to break them. I only figured this out because on the directions its shows them off, but doesn't tell you how to get them
... read more off. Once you get past that installation isn't too bad, I imagine it would have been easier 1. if I had another person helping or 2. if I were taller. It is a beautiful curtain rod and cant beat it for the price. I would definitely recommend.

Easy to install
It's easy to install. All you need is a good drill. Be careful that you might break some of the parts, though I found a replacement for the broken part.

Very sturdy,well built compared to those in this price range and even higher. Would reccommend using 3/16 toggle bolts (for sheet rock)instead of the system it came with.
