Chrome finish is smooth w/o blemishes, spring is stout enough to withstand 3 sets of not-flimsy-material curtains w/chrome-finished gromets across 62" window, and the 5/8" diameter fits the gromets w/no hassle. I despaired of finding a rod w/this length, a strong adjustment action and a smaller than 1" diameter so am very pleased w/this purchase.

perfect for curtains and other items
tension rods are a great way to hang curtains easily and quickly. they also make a fantastic way to display other hanging objects in you windows for different seasons. i used these to hang snowflakes in the windows in my classroom when suction cups would not stay stuck!
Heavy duty, good value
It's hard to find a tension rod longer than 48 in, that's not a shower rod. This rod and it's shorter counterpart are larger diameter than other tension rods I've purchased. I bought a skinner rod at a home improvement store and it bent while I was trying to position it between two walls, this rod is far sturdier. Time will tell if the rubber caps will hold up, but I'm hopeful. The one's i purchased in Walmart store clearly proclaimed "Made in USA" on the package, an added plus. The picture on here doesn't show the cavernous sharp seam and the edges are rough enough they grab whatever you try to slide over them, but I haven't seen a better alternative.
Lite Curtain Rod
This works if you have window casing to place it in. I have two others that I bought almost 20 years ago from Walmart, I am sad to say that I do not think these will last as long but I only needed them for my lite weight curtains and they do the job quite well. Just be aware they are cheaply made and if you are using anything but cotton be extra careful putting your curtains on as they may snag the material.
Curtain Tension Rod
This tension rod was worthless. The spring had zero tension, and when I first twisted the rod to extend it, the spring solder point on the fixed end broke off. I returned this to Walmart and purchased a higher priced one, which was also unusable, and returned. I got a really nice tension rod at BB&B for about $2.00 more. Very happy with that purchase.
