                      The product is great value for money, I am just disappointed that it was not available in my local store (Thurmaston) and that I had to travel all the way over to Nuneaton to get one!!

                          Like others have said the rings get stuck on the overlap on the pole which is annoying as the white curtain hooks then fall off.

                            Good quality curtain poles that are easy to fit.
                            A lot of people are complaining that it is difficult to pull the curtains over the join of the pole. A simple solution to this is to cut the pole with a hack saw so that the join is in the middle of the window and therefore the curtains will not need to be pulled over the join.

                              Excellent. I've spent hundreds of pounds on solid brass poles etc but what is there to complain about at £19.99? Does its job and looks far more expensive than what it is

                                      Nice looking pole but curtains catch on the pole where the two poles overlap each other. You have to really tug the curtains over the ridge.

                                              Pleased with how the pole looks in the room, for the price. Disappointed that when extended it is difficult to get the curtains to pull over the extension.

                                              Service and delivery comments:

                                              Used reserve and collect service, which was prompt and they kept me informed but disappointed that one of the poles I collected had been damaged and I had to return it.

                                                  I have two of these poles and they look really
                                                  good on my french windows and my living room window. The only downside is that you can't but extra curtain rings anywhere....not available on the internet or in any other shops. There are 22 rings supplied per pole which isn't enough as you have 11 per curtain. My curtains are 90 x 90 therefore I could do with 20 rings on each curtain. I will have to purchase another pole just to get a further 22 rings and throw the pole away. Expensive extra curtain rings! Dunelm really should look into the possibility of sourcing a supplier for just the rings so customers like me can but extras. Great poles if you don't need any more rings.

                                                        there is a real design fault with this product, im surprised it is still on sale.
                                                        the fact that it is extendable seems like a good idea, but curtains dont pull across where join is, very annoying, have to either climb up and ease over join, or knock over it with a stick
                                                        although looks nice , i woulndt reccomend it to anyone!

                                                          I bought 2 sets of these poles for my dining room (window and patio door). They were easy to install and look very attractive. However, as other people have found, the curtain rings catch on the ridge where the poles extend. This is very disappointing and could be avoided if the plastic cuff around the larger pole were redesigned to form a graduated cone. To get around the problem my husband and I cut and joined the 2 smaller diameter poles for 1 curtain track and the 2 larger diameter poles for the other. Luckily, we had a spare joining piece from an old curtain track which fitted the smaller diameter poles. I used an off-cut from 1 of the smaller poles to join the larger poles. Fortunately for us, we were able to resolve the problem but, for customers buying just 1 set of poles, this product is totally unsuitable for purpose.

                                                                Bought the curtain pole for my sons bedroom. Had to use the extension, however it is impossible to close the curtains on the extendable side as the curtain rings get caught on the extension opening. I have to stand on a chair and lift each ring over the extension opening, a complete nightmare!

However due to it's extendable nature the curtain rings get caught on the section where the poles slide into one another. This makes it extremely hard to close the curtains and I have to stand on a chair to loop the curtain rings over the join. Too late to change it as holes have been drilled for these brackets. I am a regular Dunelm customer and this is the first time I've been disappointed with a product.

Will have to replace it! Not at Dunelm!

The price was extremely low and I was afraid that perhaps it wouldn't live up to my expectations but I was pleasantly surprised to say the least. It was functional, easy to install and was well able to cope with the extremely heavy curtains that we needed to hang.

                                                                              I can't find anything about the product that is negative so would definitely buy this again.

Only problem I found is that the rings are too small and curtains get stuck when trying to close. This wouldn't be a problem if you don't have to extend the pole though or using eyelet or tabtop curtains. Easy to install and look good. Will try to find bigger rings for curtains.

This is because they extend by having a smaller diameter pole inside a larger one and you pull them apart to the desired length. The way to overcome the curtain sticking problem is to have the join in the middle, hidden by the centre bracket. Then pull out the inner, narrower diameter pole to the the desired length, then cut off the end of the wider diameter pole to the same length from the centre join. Simples!

                                                                                                These are excellent value and I haven't been able to find any others of a similar standard cheaper elsewhere.

Although a small store they had everything I needed, had been to three larger stores trying to track down all the poles I needed!

It looked good and was easy to put up. But very quickly it became difficult to draw the curtains as the rings stick. In order to draw the curtains I have to stand on a chair or ladder so I can reach the top and ease the rings accross to one end. It is very frustrating and disappointing. I was kitting out my first home when I got this pole and so money is tight and I can't replace it for a while. I have had it too long to take it back. Not impressed at all.
