    We bought this in store so we had not read the reviews beforehand. This curtain pole is simply not fit for purpose and should have been withdrawn by now, given the consistently bad reviews over at least two years. You simply cannot close the curtains over the join where the smaller pole goes inside the bigger one. The rings catch and you have to climb up and lift them over the join. Some reviewers describe 'workarounds' to make a poor design work: cutting the pole so the join is in the middle, buying bigger rings etc. My husband put a plastic tubing sleeve over the thinner extending pole to make it the same size, so making it possible to slide the rings over it. The plastic sleeve at the join (put there perhaps as a result of a suggestion from a previous bad review?) did nothing to solve the problem and in fact the plastic sleeve itself has ridges in it which make it worse. The curtain rings have plastic inserts inside them but even these have ridges on them. My husband is currently sanding them off one by one! Yes we have made it work but if we charged B&Q at even minimum wage for the time we have spent on it, it would come to a lot more than the purchase price! We didn't buy this pole because it was cheap: we bought it because we liked it. Please B&Q: if you want to keep your good reputation, withdraw it and sort out the design issues before it goes back on your shelves.

    Ok it’s extendable, but when you want to close the curtains it’s a problem getting over the join-where it’s extends, so I wouldn’t reccomend.

    Rubbish

    Disgruntled too - 2 years ago

    I bought this curtain pole because it extended to the lenghth I wanted. All was fine untiI came to draw the curtains. The join of the thick pole to the extending thin pole stopped the curtain rings from drawing past that point and caused the plastic inside of the rings to come out. Can you suggest how I can overcome this please.

    I would like to revise my previous review. We have since refitted the extending pole by cutting the end of the thicker pole to the desirable length whilst making sure the join of the 2 poles is in the middle and hidden by the central bracket. If this instruction was included then this would have made the job a lot easier and less frustrating! I am now very pleased with the product.

    not fit for purpose!!

    We fitted this product today-it took 2 hours and looked great until we hung the curtains and tried to close them, the curtain wouldnt pull past where the extendending pole joins the other one. This renders the pole not fit for purpose so I have no idea how BnQ can continue to sell this product!! I will be contacting the store tomorrow to complain!!
