Rated 4 out of 5Â by trialanderror solution to catching rings
In response to the other reviews where rings are catching on the rod. where possible, purchase the larger size rod rather than one that fits the window/door area while the side rods are fully extended. If the width you are buying for is 76" as was in my case, don't purchase the 48"-84" but rather buy the 72"-144". This way the middle rod has a longer running surface allowing the rings to slide freely.

I have a side decorating business and have purchased all kinds of drapery hardware. For the price this is the best hardware I have come across. Love the substanial feel of the rod and the oversized finial. The key to using store bought rods is to buy heavier weight wood or metal rings. Your curtains will slide over the rod more smoothly when you use good rings. I have also used the conversion kit when I needed a double rod. Love these products.

The rods look nice but the operation is not. The extension inner pole is too much smaller than the left and right outer poles. So the rings get caught where the extension meet the outer poles. I cannot open the drapes beyond a couple of feet.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by islandbreeze It works for me.
Like the other review, curtain rings get caught at the extention point, but I can yank it slightly, then they slides open without any further problem everyday. My curtains are light weight ones even though they are long. That could be the reason. If you have heavy drapes maybe you need to think about it. I'm not sure.
