Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Overlord Very brackety
If you are looking for a bracket, this bracket is very brackety. Not the bracketiest bracket I have ever bought, but brackety enough for daily use. So far the katana above my bed has not fallen and decapitated anyone.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skyhawkd Beware of the depth!
HD used to carry a different line of wooden curtain rods and brackets - now we are stuck with the Martha Stewart garbage. The packaging on this item is deceptive! It looks like a full-sized bracket and while it does technically hold the 1 3/8" curtain rod, it is only a coupe inches in depth. So figure that trim is 1/2" - 1" and any hardware for hanging drapery is another inch, you won't be able to actually do anything except hang the curtain. Don't expect to be able to open it. Dumb design. Lowes has another brand that I'm getting instead. I'm just thankful I noticed this defect before I drilled holes in my wall!

Picked these up because they looked nice for the price and could accommodate a large dowel to make a nice curtain mount on a budget. The mounting system design is fine and allows the hardware to be hidden for a nice clean install. Unfortunately the drywall anchors provided are less than worthless, smooth sided anchors with two small tines are supposed to keep these brackets secure. They don't. Tightening the mount to the wall just leads to the anchor spinning in the wallboard and further widens the whole they're in rather than expanding the anchor to secure it in the wall. I guess HD wins out because now I have to go back for better anchors.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LadyDIY Use your own hardware!
As the other person said, the instructions were bad, but I was able to figure it out. Two things bothered me the most about this product.
1. The screws that hold the catch plate are on so tight! I had a hard time getting them off even with the electric screw driver.
2. The MOST annoying thing was that the screws going into the wall that have the anchor sleeves are FLAT HEAD with a RATCHET cut so unless you have a an electric screw driver that can fit this good luck screwing these in by hand. As a woman I found trying to use the provided screws was impossible. I ended up using my own screws and anchors with a phillips head. Why make things with flat head screws these days?
On a positive note: the rod brackets hold tightly to the wall and seem to work well. I have a 120 long window, and all of the metal brackets just seemed too flimsy for the amount of curtain I wanted to hang.

It is INCREDIBLY difficult to take apart in order to assemble in the first. I had to bring it back. It's not worth it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Difficult to install
1. The instructions for installation are just little drawings so one must have some sense of how things work to figure out how to install.
2. Untightening the screws in the back of the bracket was very difficult.
3. They look OK once installed.
4. If I could have found another bracket in this size, I would have gotten them instead. But in spite of a large search, all the others were for much smaller diameter rods.
5. This is the second Martha Stewart product I've purchased at Home Depot and neither one was good quality. My other purchase was drapery rods which were discontinued by Home Depot, and I know why--they are poor quality.

I used two to hold the the beautiful custom pool cue handle that serves as a towel bar in my billiard themed master bath. So nice I went back for two more and added a second towel bar. Rich,wood tones and easy to install!
