      Perfectly practical

      By Candcthai

      from Northampton

      Pros

      • Easy To Hang
      • Great Colour
      • Quality Construction

      Cons

      • Unattractive Design

      Best Uses

        It works as a twist and lock system, which is better than the traditional spring loaded tension rods. However, I disliked the rounded ends and would have preferred a thinner but stronger design more akin to the size of the net rods available in store. However it works perfectly and is discreet which is exactly how it should be.

        • Any Suitable Window

        Good for the small/medium windows with nets but not sure how much weight could be carried on bigger windows.

        Although all items appeared to be available, not all the items were in stock in store : (

          Bought the largest size for 3 windows. Very disappointed. Even with 3 adhesive hooks to support each rod they still droop in the middle and then fall down. I will be going for a refund.

                                The tension rod was ideal for purpose but because of the length did need an additional middle support to prevent sagging.

                                          Unfortunately they do not hold their tension.I bought 2 of the shortest ones for voile curtains with only a 14" drop but every three or four days one or the other has fallen from the walls. I am hoping that by persistently forcing them into the space it will solve the problem eventually.

                                                The Tension rods are ok on flat surfaces, on angled reveals, even slight, they will not stay in place. And that is with 'light nets'. I am pleased with the 'holding' qualities, on my other 'straight' surfaces.

                                                            Tensioner kept skipping the thread - finally managed to find the 'bite' point in the twist and get it to stay in place. Wanted to open one side of the curtain to access patio door behind, but at the first touch on the curtain the whole thing fell down. It may be a faulty one, but the tension is not enough to hold the net in place and allow it to be opened, which is what I told the sales person is what I needed.

Unfortunately they are not strong enough so have had to use a hook in the center to stop sagging, the main reason for not using the telescopic sort or the old wire I had before. They fit well apart from this and are quite simple to use.

I wanted to hang some voiles in an old house with deep windows to save drilling into the upvc frames. However there was absolutely no 'tension' in the rod and it would not stay up on its own even without any voiles attached to it.

Pretty easy to hang - takes a bit of patience twisting as much as you can to get them tight and they might slip at first, but you'll get them up!

As the internal spring is designed to work across the sizes for each tension rod specifically then there should be enough tension created without the need for any central support. Bear in mind that these rods are designed for lightweight fabrics and voiles only that shouldn't pose much weight on this product. Kind regards

The Tension Rods are only really suitable for lightweight curtains, net curtains or voiles and would need to be placed inside a recess to be able to hold the curtains on each end without hooks or holes. I hope this helps.

As the features and benefits state on the webpage the Tension Rods are only really suitable for lightweight curtains, net curtains or voiles. Anything with blackout qualities will normally provide to much weight to use on a tension rod. I hope this is useful to you.
