Are the end caps metal or plastic?

Asked by LarryC January 9, 2021

Answers

Metal. There is a metal piece that get screwed to wall that holds up the bar and a stainless steel cap that covers the holding bracket. I used wall dog screws because did not have stud under the Sheetrock.

what is the outside diameter of the rod? Is it 1" or the inside diameter is 1"?

The outside measures 1”

So, The rod is steel NOT stainless steel as stated in Home Depot's description?

Answers

I have two of these. The outer surface appears to be stainless steel - no rust or pitting after a few years of use. Of course, it is hard for the purchaser to be sure without performing metallurgical tests, but I would assume the manufacturer knows what it is made of.

How far apart are the screw holes on this rod?

I cut mine with a disc grinder and you are right that the cut is covered. It is plated so might be too hard for a hacksaw, but I'm not sure of that.

Does the rod adjust out ? Or is it a solid 60" one piece rod ?

Asked by Mike July 25, 2017

Answers

It's a solid 60" - I cut mine with a pipe cutter.

Where are the bevels? My rod is smooth, not beveled.

This rod looks great in our bathroom. It is sturdy, nice looking and was easy to install.

can this rod be cut down?

Asked by kchap March 13, 2017

Answers

Yes. However, it's very difficult since its made of stainless steel.

Are the caps fixed to the rod?

Asked by benanas January 18, 2017

Answers

No, you slide them on before installing but beware as the flange means the rod has to be cut within 1/8" or so.

Normally I shop at a competitor. But, HomeDepot had the curtain rod we have been searching for..... Product was exactly what we needed to complete our bathroom renovation. However, when package arrived the box was split open in the center. The internal box housing the curtain rod was crushed at two places... When the contractor placed the curtain rod in the now secured wall flanges, we noticed that the curtain rod was slightly bent. He could not secure the curtain rod. Getting another rod has delayed the completion of our renovation project. This was my first online order with HomeDepot and it may be my last.

Looks good but had to overcome challenges: First of all there are no directions shipped with the rod and hardware; you have to go online. When I went online to the product I purchased, the directions were for a different, curved bar. I had to look for a similar product in a different finish. Directions are also not very clearly written. Second, and most important, was that when I screwed the wall flanges to the shower wall, they were flush mounted. Because the cover flanges need an overlap of at least 1/16" they would not stay on. I had to add washers behind the wall flange in order to position it 1/16" from the wall. Luckily I had some laying around or else I would have had to go to the store and purchase them. Not sure why some reviews said "easy to install." It took me almost 2 hours and I'm pretty handy. Recommend for handy person only.

Great shower rod. Just need to make sure the length is correct or you will need to cut.

On a positive note, I like the look of this shower rod and the hidden screw holes. (I got the brushed nickel finish). Now for the negative: This shower rod is very flimsy and I bends easily. I wound up keeping it because it was the last addition to my bathroom renovation and it had already been cut to fit the opening of my shower. My contractor cut a wood dowel to fit inside the rod to strengthen it and it seems to help. I do not recommend this item.

No instructions included but simple enough to figure out on my own. Biggest issue was getting cut to correct length without cutting too short which would make it unusable.

Excellent product. Screws are completely hidden in end caps. Reasonably heavy duty (don't try doing pull-ups). Straightforward installation. (You probably will need to cut the rod down to the exact length of your shower; a pipe cutter intended for cutting copper piping worked well for me. A hacksaw would also work.) Stainless steel is the best material for shower rods, in my opinion. (Aluminum ones leave black marks on anything that touches them such as a towel thrown over the bar.)
