Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JBoxodonuts Simple shower rod for those of us that HATE tension rods
If you hate tension shower rods and you don't want to spend a bunch and/or don't want a fancy shower rod then get this one. It's not super heavy, but it's nice. You need to cut it to fit, but the way the brackets and flanges are you don't need to be exacting with your cut. You have at least 1/8" leeway, maybe 1/4". You can't do pull ups on this one, so if you have monkey like destructive children, get something heavier duty.
This has a somewhat brushed finish, not polished. I have chrome fixtures and it looks OK even though it doesn't really match.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 1olddog What I was looking for.
Was what I was looking for, not pricey, looks good, no seems. Rod had a little bow in it, but placed it to the front and it is not noticeable. My pipe cutter would not cut the rod, only bent it, so used hacksaw.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Idonthaveanickname Almost not worth it
Comes without mounting instructions and the flanges were impossible to figure out. Went pout and bought different flanges and then it was worth it. As long as you can cut it down to the size you need it is well worth the price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ginofs Really nicely made, substantial rod.
This stainless steel shower curtain rod is not lightweight. It feels substantial and durable. I checked that it is not ordinary steel with a magnet. It is not magnetic, so is real stainless steel. For the price, it's a great rod.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by cottagebunny Brushed chrome not polished
Shower curtain rod seems fine, but it's brushed chrome and not polished. Not what I wanted and I'm returning it. Delivery took a long time, hopefully the return will be smooth at the local Home Depot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kab21 Excellent product at a great price
The stainless rod was easy to cut to the correct length. It took only a few minutes to install. Much better a spring

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GSC62 Stainless is Paradise!
We had purchased a shower rod that was "rust-resistant" but that was quickly proven wrong. I searched in all the major stores for a simple stainless steel rod to install but could not find one in any stores. What's up with that! I then decided to see what was available online and came across this product. The price was a little more than what we had spent for the other adjustable rod, it would need a little trimming of the rod to fit our shower space but it was a stainless steel rod and what we really wanted.
I couldn't be happier with the purchase. The stainless steel finish holds up to the moisture of the shower and I purchased the rolling shower curtain hangers along with it. They looked a little weak but they are working just fine. (I do wish they were a little bit more heavy duty.) With no "pump" on the rod we get no snagging of the shower curtain rings. The little pleasures of life!
Hanging the rod was rather straight forward if you are comfortable with handyman type work around your home. I had to trim the rod down with a pipe cutter. The mounting rings came with all the hardware and plastic screw anchors if you need them and the end caps. I measured the pipe 1/4" inch shorter to adjust for the hanging rings. It fit snug but I had enough room to bring it in place for mounting without marking up the wall.
Stainless is paradise for me. Trouble free, solid one piece pipe that won't snag the curtain rings... that won't rust on me in a week! It makes a big difference for our family. I could have spent a lot more for the some of the fancier rods I looked at but this was a simple straight forward solution and just what I needed. Why you can't find these stainless steel rods at the store is beyond belief.
