It definitely needs a roof support, so if you have a flat roof I would definitely by the packaged deal, that come with the support rod that goes to the ceiling. Unfortunately for me I had to hunt a roof support rod that could be attached to a slanted ceiling. I found it here or some where on the net. I would complain abut the price, but who would listen? Not much competion in the L shaped shower rod industry.

It was exactly what we needed. It arrived fast and was easy to cut to size and install. You will need to purchase the extra support bar. We needed it for even our small space.
The Shower Rod is fundamentally not strong enough for anything other than the most lightweight of curtains. The single grub screw at each bracket doesn't provide any vertical adjustment, and as such the corner of the shower rod hangs down a few degrees when the shower curtain is in storage, and drops even further when the curtain is in use. Ideally there needs to be a second grub screw underneath the rod brackets to allow vertical adjustment. If you can live with this 'droop', then the rod is fine. The quality of construction is good, and the chrome very shiny.
Chromed Barclay shower curtain rod can be shortened with hack
saw and miter box; don't try using tubing cutter, it will just
walk. File rod after cutting to remove burrs. Mount brackets
in proper position on wall or tiles then insert ends of
L rod that is screwed together. Tighten set screws on brackets to
hold rod and you are finished. You can mount curtain on shower rod
before installed rod to save time. Simple easy installation.
