These are meant for the very sheerest of curtains and will not hold much weight. That being said: Pros: They get the job done. I placed two sheers on each rod and they held up fine. They are small enough that the rod is easily hidden under the sheer. If your expectations aren't high for beauty and just want to get your windows covered, these do the job. Cons: the directions are crap. They tell you how to make tension less but not how to extend the rod. Once I figured it out, I was annoyed at myself because it seemed obvious after the fact. Before I figured it out, I was ready to throw them to the curb. Anyway, just twist in the opposite direction that are in the directions until you're sure your going to break them. They'll make a clicking/springing sound and then they'll easily extend with twisting. The rod casing is pretty flimsy and you can see the springs where the casing comes apart a bit. Easily hidden by the curtains, but kind of ew nonetheless. I overlook this because I paid less than $3 each

JUST SLOWLY STEP AWAY....
Don't bother to even look at these. These are the flimsiest rods I've ever come across. They buckle when you get them tight enough to even stay up so you have a U shaped rod, and even then it is hit or miss as to whether they stay in place. I am constantly readjusting them to stay up. Fortunately, I only use them in the winter to put up thermal panels so next winter I will replace them. Don't say I didn't warn you....

Perfect Fit

This works perfect! Our apartment came with cheap mini blinds in the small bathroom window. They became an eyesore. Using this tension rod and one small curtain panel - the eyesore issue is solved. in addition...we have privacy again. Works great for something light weight.

Easy Installation

Bought these tension rods for hanging sheers in my home and an apartment building I own. Easy to use and installed within minutes. No more holes in the wall or window frames! I will definitely continue to use tension rods for my other window covering needs.

Loved the convenience

The best part was the ease in picking up my purchase. I had spent more than half an hour in the store searching for these curtain rods and couldn't find them. The quality was good and just what I wanted.

Just as pictured

Very good value

Tiny

I'm not sure how to review this item. I was expecting a rod with a larger diameter. The picture is very misleading. I will likely need to return it - or try to find some use for it around the house. The diameter is about the size of a jumbo pencil (about 1/2 inch). I probably should have just read the diameter carefully and put it against a ruler. 7/16 inch is very small. I know, I shouldn't give this a low rating because of my lack of understanding. So, I still give it 4 stars. It looks nice, but this thing is small.

You get what you pay for...

I can't drill holes in the home I rent, so the landlord suggested tension rods. Being a one income family, I like a good deal; however, that's only if the deal works. Compared to others I have, these stick and are harder to turn when placing. Also, they don't hold much weight. I bought double panels that are medium thickness and they fell a few times. I finally got them to work...if nothing touches or goes near them. For the price I didn't return them, but for those considering them, invest the couple extra dollars for higher quality ones.
