Shower Rod - 5-foot Curved - Crescent Rod by Shower Solutions from Focus Products
Curved 60" shower rod
This product will improve the look and feel of using a shower over a straight rod. I suggest using plastic curtain hooks for the lower friction compared to metal ones so there is less strain on the rod during standard use. This rod arrived fairly fast. I couldn't find any quality looking rods at any local stores. This rod was a replacement for one that had failed. it had failed. It failed by the set screw that holds the rod from rotation. The set screw threaded area broke away from the end mount. It is very thin. This put all the rotation force on one end and had started to work the wall mounting screws loose. I was hoping this rod would have the same wall mounting bolt pattern.. It did as it was exactly the same brand that I had from before... It does not say a brand name on it but the small part number on the end mounts was the same.
This time to prevent the same failure I glued the ends of the rod in the mounts using clear silicone adhesive and didn't tighten the set screws to much.

Best curved shower rod
I have remodeled many bathrooms and have used other brands of curved shower rods, but the Crescent rod from Shower Solutions is absolutely the best one I have used, and I have installed several of them in projects that I've done. The great design and quality manufacturing sets it apart from others that I have used.

function form and value
This is a great product. It has a one piece rod that allows easy and smooth movement of curtain rings. I got the brushed nickel finish to match my fixtures...looks fantastic. Install is easy if you have the right drilling equipment. I had installed porcelain tiles which require special drill bits...ceramic is much easier.
The look is defintely upscale and the curve gives much more elbow room in the tub.

Easy install. I was so concerned about drilling through my brand new ceramic tile, but that was no big deal. All you have to do is be able to follow instructions, and it is easy.
We we're told the item was on back order, but arrived a couple of days later., that was a nice surprise. We will buy from vintagetub.com again, and we will be sure to tell people who we come in contact with.

Crescent Shower Rod
Our local store used to carry this kind of rod, which we really liked, but they no longer carry it. I hadn't realized when I went there again and purchased 2 different other kinds of curved shower rods that the seams in them (the adjustable types) would cause the shower hooks to catch. This new rod is smooth and has no seams to catch the hooks, so it's much better. I'm glad I found it! Even though we had to wait a few extra weeks for it to arrive from Vintage, it is worth the wait.

the curved shape adds a roomier feel, without having the shower curtain get stuck to you.
