Hi Jordan, thank you for asking about the Glacier Bay Rustproof Adjustable Tension Mount Curved Shower Rod! The 7/8-inch diameter tube should be secured into the wall by twisting the end of the tube away from you. In order to ensure the rod assembly is secure, turn the end of the 7/8-inch diameter tube until it’s tight. If you are still experiencing issues, try referring to the "Installation Guide" linked on the right side of the product detail page under “Product Overview” or watch the short video that quickly shows how to install the rod, located on the top left side of the product detail page. You can also contact the manufacturer’s customer service team at customerservice@zenith-products.com. Thanks!

You did not miss a step. They are not very tight after snapped into place. Since the curtain does not touch it, I haven't noticed mine moving. If it bothers you, one drop of super glue on the top where it wouldn't be seen would probably make it more secure.

I suspect you could, there's a plastic part under the metallic cover that could be drilled for screws.

Pretty good but...
I like this, it was fairly easy to install and looks very nice. However, every couple of weeks it slips and I wake up to a pile of shower curtain to deal with and have to re-install it. I'm going to try to hold on to this as much as possible but the slippage is annoying. I just fixed it this morning and an hour later it was slipping again on one side, making the curve slip and change shape.

DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT
Looks nice, easy instructions, but a MAJOR problem. The end tube assembly piece (step 5 in the instructions) will not tighten, and therefore it will not hold twnsion. Atter trying for 45 minutes, I took it back apart (multiple times) and there is no visible threads or any mechanism to create tension. It just spins around. Others mentioned this in their reviews, and I discunfed it. Big mistake on my part. Live and learn. Walk away from this product. Its total crap. Its nit wven worth the 35 minute drive each way to Home Depot to return it. Total waste, mass frustration late at night

I just installed one of these so I'm reviewing it while the experience is fresh on my mind. Firstly, it seems to do what it says it will. After installation it seems very tight and I don't expect any issues with it slipping or falling down. It is installed between two smooth ceramic tiles, which I expect is the optimal scenario. I was able to do everything by myself but the one place where an assistant would have been useful is during final installation, especially leveling it. Beyond that I am disappointed with a couple of things: 1) Finish. It is not chrome. I don't believe there is a bit of chrome anywhere on it - not even on the end caps. Knowing that it is made of "rustproof" aluminum I'm guessing they just polished the pieces to a relatively bright finish and figured it would fool most of us. Polished aluminum will never look as nice as chrome plating and certainly the "finish" will not last nearly as long. I can't comment on the other available finishes but no doubt they are no more permanent than this one. 2) End caps. THEY ARE HUGE! I guess that is necessary to cover mounting brackets large enough to provide a reliable friction fit. But what's with the oversized oval holes? This is not necessary and it looks like crap. Lastly, after tightening the rod as much as seems possible before blowing out the single point setscrew that sets the length, both end caps still flop around on the mounting brackets! I get that it is a nearly impossible task to make an adjustable curved rod that can be kept in place with tension alone, but this seems more like a first cut than a refined design. And the finish leaves a lot to be desired as well. I give it three stars for functionality.

Thank you for posting your feedback online! We would like to this opportunity to address the issues you mentioned in your comment. 1) Finish: This rod has a durable anodized chrome finish and also rust resistant. In addition, the chrome finish does meet certified color standards. 2)End Caps: Since we strive to manufacture products with easy assembly, the size of the end caps is a design feature which aids in assembling tightly over the mounting brackets with ease; however, if you are experiencing difficulty with them, please give us a chance to make it right by calling our customer care experts at 1-800-892-3986. We value our customers’ opinions and would like to again thank you for you feedback.

Easy to install, instructions were spot on, I did the install alone but some help would have been nice. It is a well engineered product, great finish, we bought it to move edges of curtain further into shower to keep water off of bath floor, it does a great job, bath floor stays dry! We are going to buy one for our other shower!

Yes with qualification. The tension mount is not as easy an install as a screwed-in one. It works but is a bit of a pain to do This is due to the difficulty of holding the rod steady while trying to install it. As a result, I'd give it a 3.5. Four things: 1) Make sure the long thin plastic insert fits in-between the two rods first. 2) To set the rod length, you will need to grab the point where the two rods meet; an extra set of hands may help. 3) The pointed set screw then locks the rod length - absolutely critical step. 4) Then it's a matter of turning the one-side until the tension locks the shower curtain rod against the opposing walls.

I chose this rod because I wanted a rust-proof, self-supporting rod without brackets being drilled into my tile walls. I'll admit I was skeptical about the rod's particular installation method and design having just installed another store/manufacturer's product with similar installation method that failed miserably and fell within hours. The method is to expand for rough fit...then tighten and expand on end for final fit /tension without a traditional tension spring. Now that it's installed, I think this rod will perform much better (stay in place!) due to a couple aspects. First, the rod end that contacts the wall is much larger diameter, probably twice as large as other product. Second, the gel-like surface that contacts the wall seems to resist slipping better. I could see and feel the tension building up as I did the final tighten, which wasn't the case with the other brand's failed rod. Some people have mentioned the singe set screw holding the 2 rods together. It probably would be a good idea to have 2 small screws connecting the rods instead of 1. All it would take is the drilling of an additional hole in the one half of the rod and would probably add more alignment stability too. Really when you think about it, all the tension is on that 1 screw so 2 would be better. I wasn't looking to buy a curved rod but it was the only one that was rust-proof/no brackets in stock so I went ahead and got it. Now that it's installed, it looks great, and I can see will be nice to have the extra room. I am hoping it stays put on the wall!

I had a hard time finding a curved rod that required no drilling holes in the wall, so when I found this I was skeptical that it would do what it says. Well it does exactly what it says and I couldn’t be happier. All the extra space and elegant appearance of a brushed nickel curved shower rod, with none of the headache. I live in an apartment so the fewer holes I make / have to patch up, the better.
