Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Review01 Do NOT buy this product
We returned all 6 window sets of this flimsy product after installation-- even the smaller windows (48") did not hold up the curtains. The 48" wide set only came with 2 brackets which you cannot order separately, and after 2 days and many hours I could not find anything useful to support the curtains-- the sag, with normal weight curtains, was nearly 1.5" in the middle of a standard 48" wide curtain. VERY DISAPPOINTING. Do NOT buy this poor product. By the way, the model designation "Home Decorators Collection" is a Home Depot brand name not the manufacturer so you'll never be able to find parts, even with the entire Home Dept product support team helping. Absolute worthless product!

Perhaps someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but the TWO sets we had purchased from Home Depot for our living room did not contain the correct parts. After finagling one set together over our shorter window (and completely avoiding setting in the middle piece, I set out to conquer our longer window and quickly gave up. I finally asked a friend to come over and help, and they too said the piece we had was not the piece we needed. To clarify, the middle piece that should allow the curtain rod to reach 144 in. was actually an end piece that could not fit between the two other end pieces. So, after a long while of getting tired of seeing the boxes sitting on my living room floor, I tried to exchange them for the same pieces. Checking a couple of boxes before leaving, I found them all to have the same problem. Am I crazy? Why has no one noticed this?

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Renovations Absolute junk!
This product is horrible. The ones from bed, bath, and beyond are 100% better. We have wide windows and these rods droop in the middle, even with the extra middle support bracket. Don't waste your money.

This is a very sturdy rod, even extended. Well made and easy to put up.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SMLACW Pain in the butt, looks good once installed.
So my fiance and I bought this "set" to replace some ugly broken blinds in our apartment... 1. The anchors it comes with are garbage. We used our own that we happened to have left over from another project. 2. PAIN IN THE BUTT to install all the bracket things because the design flaw doesn't allow a drill to hit the screw at the correct angle and causes all sorts of annoyances. 3. Took us all the way until the end to realize there's only one rod included. "Double rod system" has me thinking two rods... Double... Two... Anyways, MY BAD. So after about 3 trips to home depot & buying 2 sets... We finally had everything installed and it looks GREAT now. I would never recommend this to anyone though unless you really know what you're doing. Also, each bracket requires two screws... There's three brackets... Our set only had 4 screws total. Not cool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RK Unbelievably poor design for "conversion"
I had the same issue as another reviewer - we were literally converting from a Home Decorators single rod to a double rod in order to add a layer of sheers. The bracket screw hole spacing does not allow an actual conversion - they are a hair farther apart than the original screw holes. To get a secure mount we would have to drill in completely new places and fill in the massive holes (with anchors) we drilled previously.
The enclosed circular design likely won't work well for us anyway as the walls are too close to the rod ends. We likely won't have space to feed the rods through. Setting the rod in (as in the single rod bracket style) just makes so much more sense. I might try setting the added rod on top of the old brackets and jerry-rigging something to hold it in place (after ensuring the added sheers won't add too much weight) but if that doesn't work we'll be returning this. What a disaster from a design perspective.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ScottEF Odd deformation of internal parts
The rod appearance and length matched our needs, so we got one to rest in some wooden mounts we had instead of using the ones in the box, putting the inner rod into the plastic ends of the two outer pieces so as to expand it to its full length. The connection isn't tight, but since there were several inches to spare at each of the connecting points, and it wasn't going to be sliding back and forth a lot, we thought it would work fine. After a month or so it suddenly fell apart, and we found that one of the inside plastic rings on the edge rods that the inner rod rested in had somehow gotten jammed further inside the outer rod so the inner rod wasn't held even semi-snugly any more. We replaced it immediately...and the new one just fell apart on us the same way, the plastic piece again looking deformed, almost as if it had melted. I can't account for this at all, since the matched plastic part on the other outer rod, just a few feet away, show no deformity, and there's no special source of heat that would be so localized, nor did we move the rods at all since installing--it's not even clear how moving it would be able to cause this deformity. These pieces just fall apart, inexplicably.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cxseven Weak, bends easily
We used three of these brackets to support our drapes, but after a few months, all had slowly bent from the weight of the drapes alone. Granted, it doesn't look like there's anything stronger for the same price, unless you go with wood... which I will.
