Moen® Adjustable Curved Brushed Nickel Shower Rod
This product works well!
I bought it for my old house and just moved into a new one so I bought it for my new guest bathroom shower/tub. The fact that is great is it gives more room in the shower and you don't have a wet shower liner touching you while you are showering!

DISAPPOINTED! ALREADY BROKEN
THIS ROD LOOKS GREAT, BUT IT BROKE ALREADY. IT IS IN OUR GUEST BATHROOM AND THEREFORE DOES NOT GET USED DAILY. IT WAS INSTALLED IN LATE 2010. THE MOUNTING BRACKET ON ONE END JUST BROKE AND THE ROD FELL ON A GUEST. WHEN WE WENT TO REMOVE THE OTHER ONE IT COMPLETELY SHATTERED. CANT FIND A REPLACEMENT BRACKET ANYWHERE.

RUSTING after only a few months of use
I purchased this shower rod approximately three months ago and have appreciated the extra space in my shower. However, this week I looked up at the rod and noticed that there is a line of RUST the entire length of the rod. It is rusting at the bottom of the rod where the drops of water remain after a shower. I wanted this shower rod to be permanent, but at this rate it's going to look awful in no time.

Curtain rod shows rust
After only about six months there are rusty looking marks on the bottom of the curved rod. Looks old and rickety and very unattractive. Other than that I liked the product but probably wouldn't purchase it again because of the look. Now I would like to find a replacement for the rod ONLY. Really don't want to have to pay for the whole thing and only use the rod. I'm stuck with this model because we installed it over ceramic tile so I don't want to mess with another model. I expected more from Moen.

Not a bad product at all
I was scared initially by some of the reviews but went ahead and bought it anyways.
The installation is a little tricky on tile, you will need to purchase some tile/masonry anchors from your local home improvement store. Most come in a kit with the wall plug, screws, and a drill bit for under $10. Make sure to purchase #10 screws/anchors. If the tiles are glazed it may be tricky to get the drill bit to bite in. I used a pinhead punch and a hammer to gently tap and score the surface first.
My total installation time was about 20 minutes.
I have no issues with the open style hooks hanging up on the bar. It comes with a little plastic transition ramp that gets pressed inbetween the two bars like most of the adjustable rods have.
Overall I'm satisfied with the look and installation. Time will tell to see if it weathers the moisture.

Hooks Fall off the Rod
Bought the Brushed Nickel Curved Rod because of the Moen Name. I hung a beautiful fabric shower curtain with brushed Nickel shower hooks, These hooks are "open". In other words they do not lock shut. Everytime you slide the curtain it hits the "bump" on the rod making the hooks fall off the rod and the shower curtain fall to the floor! What a pain in the rear. I bought UGLY locking closed hooks but they look so cheesey. So I bought an EXPENSIVE hookless shower curtain with a snap in liner & a "window" to let light in. Well it slides better on the shower rod bump - only slight sticking - and the curtain does not fall to the floor. PROBLEM NOW is the "fabric window" in the shower curtain allows spraying water to escape the shower area into the main batroom area. I do not know where I go from here?!?!?!??

Great idea, easy to install, works super, looks good but brushed nickle finish is showing lots of staining after about a year. Still works fine, but rod looks a little dirty. Tried to clean and discovered it's stained/discolored and cleaning didn't correct the issue.
Too bad - I'd of given this shower rod 5 stars otherwise.

Bar seems good ! Fasteners are to cheap to last, I replace all of the hardware.
