      The poles extended as it said on the packaging but the rings are extremely stiff to slide across the poles. In fact I have to stand on a chair in order to draw the curtains in my lounge. As you can imagine this is very annoying! I would not recommend this product.

      Nice poles basically that extend for the windows you're fitting. Very easy to put up and look the part in chrome. They come with the supports in the middle, curtain rings and the screws.
      The screws are cheap and nasty though so if you can use stronger ones as the threads go very quickly.
      You have to buy the ends to finish off the rails so this adds to the cost.

      • Bedroom

      This pole was very easy to install,. 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.

          Packaging broken, finials squashed, ends bent, plastic coating hanging off one end of the pole and worst of all I have to stand on my bed to pull one curtain over the join where the pole is extended as it gets stuck! Will have to replace it! Not at Dunelm!

                Bought for Lounge which had a difficult sized window so the extendable option was great. 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.

                  Bought these for daughter's bedroom. Look as good as others that cost me much more. 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.

                                Antique brass is a very nice gold colour not brassy or cheap looking at all.

                                wanted a pole with length between the standard lengths so telescopic pole seemed to be the answer-
                                this pole was decent quality and was easy to install. however the rings will not slide over the joint between the 2 different diameters of pole and in order to close the curtains each ring has to be lifted over the joint

                                  Other reviewers have said that the curtains stick where the 2 parts of the pole meet. 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.

                                    Had difficulty in finding extendable poles for
                                    heavier curtains without spending a fortune. also had time constraints to deal with and needed quickly. These fit the bill perfectly.

                                    Staff at Cannock store were excellent as also made other purchases, even arranged for someone to take the items to my car, as I could not carry everything I purchased. Although a small store they had everything I needed, had been to three larger stores trying to track down all the poles I needed!

                                            I was happy with this curtain pole for the first few weeks. 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.

                                              quality is very good, only problem is that the curtain ring snag on the joint between the extendable pipes. I've put tape on it for now, need to find a permanant solution

                                                Used this product at landing windows. The transition from narrow to wider section tubing presents an impediment to smooth running of the rings. Better to buy the Maine line collection and cut to length.

                                                The brackets are functional, but too unattractive to be a suitable centre bracket.

                                                      Shame due to its extending capabilities, the curtains catch as you draw them, but not too much hassle to coerce the curtains past the ridge.

                                                            You will read other reviews about problems with this pole when used in extended mode. It simply means that those people fitted it incorrectly. Not surprising really, the instructions are poor. The trick is to make sure the join between the two halves of the pole is in the centre and then use a hacksaw to cut away any excess tube from ONE end.

                                                                        Firstly you have to take the entire product apart to remove a clear film left on the internal pole to protect it.
                                                                        The standard of the bracket manufacture is poor with a number of the ones I received needing bending to match the others.
                                                                        Where the smaller diameter pole is inserted into the larger there is a small plastic ring, when trying to draw the curtains this impedes the curtain rings passing easily over it and makes the curtain difficult to draw.

                                                                        I bought five of these poles, wish I hadn't! I guess you get what you pay for.

Collecting from in store, I was pleasantly surprised by both the weight and the finish of the product! It comes complete with instructions & fittings, and took me well under an hour to assemble & install. This is perfect for larger sized windows, and loses none of its strength or quality of finish when it's extended. Highly recommended - not just because of its price... its also a stylish looking piece of kit!

                                                                            The problem is when its partially extended, as in our case for a 60inch wide window. One curtain was fine, the other consistently "snagged" on the join between outer and inner pole as the lip on the plastic sealing ring between the two poles is too severe for the curtain rings to get over. Your could rip the curtains.

                                                                            Pole returned for a better quality one.

I'm stuck with them as I have put the poles up now. I am going to complain to dunelm and ask for bigger rings but not hopeful!
