This rod does the job, but really needs a central bracket to hold up the middle. Although three brackets are supplied, they only work if you are mounting them at the same distance from the wall. My slider has a casement around it which is about an inch thick and therefore when mounted at the proper height, the middle bracket sticks out an inch too far.

It's an oversized curtain rod, so not much to tell except that it looks fine with good finish and cool finials. It does the job at a price far below what I would have paid for a similar item in a retail store.. .Wall mounting hardware was adequate and sturdy enough to provide secure attachment and support. I hung long double thick heavy drapes on it and it is more than up to the task of supporting them and having the drapes pulled open and shut every morning and evening. First order arrived in dismal condition with shipping carton torn open and parts missing, but STP customer service is superb; friendly and efficient. When replacement arrived in good condition, I used new carton to return original defective order. I recommend this product at this price.

I needed a 144" long decorative rod - of course, I turned to STP first. Diameter, finial and color were all that I wanted, but no 144" :-( Bought two rods for the price of a similar single rod only going to 48" in the store - figured if I had to splice to get my 144" it would be worth it. Great surprise when I found out I could telescope one rod into the other and extend the rod to 144"! Nice quality rod, and over $100 less than at the retail stores!
