      I neede to replace the tension rod for my jardiniere net in my bedroom. Didn't want to drill holes in the walls, so, this was the best solution. Just take the end piece off, feed the net onto the rod, replace the the end piece. The wind the rod until it's the desired width of your window, press into place. Job done!

        Solid solution to net problem

        • Difficult To Hang

        Best Uses

        • Bedroom

        I bought a few of these to replace the sagging wires supporting my net curtains. I was disappointed there were no fixings included ( presumably they're designed to be self-supporting, which wouldn't work with my Victorian window frames ). However, I solved the problem using plastic covered cuphooks! The longer pole has to be supported in the centre or it sags.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Efficient service, as always.

                I brought two of these one shorter one for the bedroom and a longer one for the living room to hang light net curtains on.

                They are very easy to set up with a twist and fit system they can be put up in minutes. Over short distances they are great over 2 meters they begin to sag a little with only light net curtains on. However for the price you cannot complain.

                        This item was less than £5 really strong and good quality, no problems at all with the product I was however VERY unhappy with the click and collect service. I had to wait 45 minutes while my items were found, during the search time a Manager came over to talk to me and he told me that he didnt even know that they offered click & collect. I ended up getting caught in the traffic and being late for an appointment, so this was not a good experience for me.

                            The product is good. It does the job it was bought for. It doesn't come with any instructions. It took me ages to figure out how to extend the rod to make it fit my window.
                            I have nothing for praise for how quickly this was delivered. Well packaged.

                                  Used to hang a very big net curtain to a very big bedroom window. Nice and strong, takes the weight easily.
                                  No brackets to put up, brilliant just spring loaded.
                                  Brilliant service, ordered and collected from nearest store, same day.

                                  Used product in large window which is well within the width of the tension bar however the bar bends in the middle when net curtains are put on it and comes away from the ends. Not fit for wider windows. You will have to prop it up in the middle for it to remain in place.

                                    I bought three of these rods, the two short ones were fabulous and a dream to use! However, the long one was terrible. When extended it was just too flimsy and it just kept falling off the wall!

                                            Used it to hang lightweight curtains in the bedroom easy to put up, looks good. Would be no good for medium or heavyweight curtains though. Very pleased with product.

                                                Great for hanging half-sized curtains. The rods really do work well. Saves having to drill holes and find hooks and line for the curtains. Good product. Good service.
