Customer Questions & Answers

on Glacier Bay Tension Shower rod, on the end of the thinner rod what is the correct postioning of the plastic sleeve?

When we were attempting to install the tension rod, the plastic sleeve moved toward the center of the bar. My wife thinks this sleeve should be hidden by the movable end cap but we cannot figure out how to slide the plastic sleeve to the inside of this movable end cap. Should the plastic sleeve be moved close to the adjustable knob?
Asked by: ProfGizmo
Should the plastic sleeve be moved close to the adjustable knob? Answer: No. The plastic sleeve is supposed to go inside the larger diameter rod. This acts like a spacer between the 2 rods. Once you have extended the rod to your desired length, with 2 hands hold the larger rod with your left hand in place and rotate the smaller rod counter clock wise or down. Once you have this locked in place, hang on to the rod and turn the moveable end to tighten even further and then place the cap over once complete.

Is there a pdf of the instructions I can download?

The instructions ripped as I removed the plastic band strapping it to the rod. The final step about tightening the finial is illegible, which is why I think I can't get the rod tight enough to stay up. I was able to tighten the rod itself, and I thought the finial part was tight until it fell down after 12 hours.

Customer Reviews

72 in. Finial Shower Rod in Satin Nickel is rated 1.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, but... This is an attractive shower curtain rod; however, installation was not as easy as it should have been. The twist end to tighten the rod against the tile all was difficult to get the proper tension on it. Got it done and hoping it stats okay.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Installation/Quality Horrible installation, extremely difficult to lock in place, kept falling down, not the "ease" it advertises. Cheap tension rods work far superior to this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Quality - fell off wall in 8 months. Stay away from Glacier Bay Products!! Poorly made. Must be plastic inside screw drive because mine broke after 8 months just fell off the wall on day heard a crash. Tried to put it back up and the cheap plastic parts inside were broken that's why I wouldn't recommend. You get what you pay for not in this case. Only thing nice was design. Stop having china make plastic parts inside a shower rod that needs to hold up your curtains. Stay away from Glacier Bay Products, I had a faucet that was Glacier Bay and it started to rust and come apart wasn't 2 years old.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rusted, poor plating Unlike some of the other reviews -- I thought this was fairly easy to install. However -- My curtain rod is covered in rust and I have only had it a few weeks. It is really strange. We have a downward shower head with no splashing, and there is no way that water actually touches the rod. Therefore, it must only be from steam. A shower rod that rusts with mimimal thanks! Now I have to pay to replace this rusted rod. Waste of money and time. Poor surface plating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from terrible product home depot: Doesn't a 20% approval rating over a several month period indicate that this substandard product should be taken off your shelves? I'm pretty good with DIY, but this shower rod is impossible to install with sufficient tension to stay up with even the lightest curtain. Wish I had checked the reviews before purchasing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HATE IT! I totally dislike this product. It does not hold! It is poorly made and is quite expensive for the such bad product. Its been only 5 days and it fell down 5 time. I though I was spending more to get a good tension rod but very disappointed. I don't understand why they would make something like this..uggg!!!!
