Rated 2 out of 5★ by Wild4MN There are better options. I bought these in-store looking for something functional, yet inexpensive as my budget is uber tight these days. I wanted something that would be easy and fast to use without any fuss. These seemed like a good answer. I didn't care for the color finish so much, but the rest seemed okay. When I picked up the package it was light. Okay, fine. I can deal with that. Maybe it's not such a bad thing. Wrong.To install, wall anchors are probably a good idea. I honestly don't remember if the product included them in package, but we didn't use them as we attached them to wood as opposed to the wall.First, these stick out a few inches, which is one reason I thought they'd be easy to use. Wrong. My window is clear to about 36" away from my dining chairs, yet things snag easily on these tiebacks. Not a big deal? Wrong. The tiebacks bend very easily...but they're not made of metal. They are some sort of molded resin, and the leaves on the ends snap off way too easily. I have the leaves vertical so as to not stick out any further than the rest of the tieback, but it doesn't matter. Stuff still catches and the tiebacks still break.Overall, keep looking. And keep looking beyond the BHG brand. This isn't the first BHG product I've been disappointed having wasted money on. Maybe because they don't get The Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval... 10/12/2013
