If you are reading a review on this kind of product you are clearly as thorough with your research as I am. I like you already.
But not even I can go into too much detail on a product as simple in function as this. I bought this for its minimal styling and general simplicity,and I was not disappointed. I fixed it to the wall and it holds back my curtains. I fully expect it to continue to do this for some considerable time. Remember, this product is only as good as the person who installs it, so get you cordless drill out and make it a job you can be prod of!
