I was replacing my curtain rod because I wanted a bronze rod instead of a silver one. The silver rod was very sterdy and made of a thich metal. It also was one solid peice. The new rod was very cheap thin metal, even though it came with a $159. dollar price tag. It was made of two peices that never stay together. My husband has had to make several repairs on it.
The shower rod took a very long time to get here. When it finally arrived the package had been opened. The very competent handyman I hired to put it up showed me a manufacturing problem with a component for which we had to find a makeshift solution. This translated into a trip to the store and more time to put it up.
I found this corner shower rod to be excellent in quality. Installation was a breeze, taking only 15-20 minutes (with cutting to fit my application) over a handicap access-"Safety Tub". It was a pleasure to find all hardware needed, including anchors.

One really needs to know how to contruct in order to put this in place. I had no problems, because I sew, but my husband even though he has built houses had to guided. I did not expect the ceiling rod to be so thin. I hope it holds up! The picture suggested it was thicker than it actually was up front and personal. I do not plan to hang from the rod but I did take my original liner back for a cheaper and lighter model. Looks great and I hope it stays that way.
I couldn't use any af the mounting screws or wall anchors. I had to get longer ones and higher quality ones or they would have come right out of the wall. the set screws in the mounting flanges were completely inadequate. They stripped out almost instantly. I ended up putting a sheet metal screw through the flange and into the rod. If a person doesn't feel like making modifications or isn't very handy then this isn't the product for you.
