      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!

                        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.

                        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.

                                  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.

                                            On collection at store the first pack contained broken Finials. It took 5 further packs to be brought to the desk until an unbroken pack of Finials was found. I withdrew my order and felt that I had been misled on the items quality.

                                                  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.

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.
