French Return Drapery Hardware is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 493.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from curtain rod The only thing I would like to see different is to have the screw be in the inside of the curtain rod. There are a lot of tools to make sure that the screw could be tighten from that location to avoid seeing the screw on the outer part of the curtain rod. Other than that I LOVE IT. I rate it a 9.95

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! Overall, I love this style of drapery hardware and have eight of them, five in this size. I think they look elegant, are easy to install, and I love not having the hardware ends poke out and how they wrap. My two things to note -- (1) because they're extendable, it's helpful to buy the drapery rings that go with them and (2) if you over extend them they bow. We have one window that is very large and this is just a little too small for because it really pushes to the 108'' size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for tight spaces I needed brass, and I had a narrow space where the bracket needed to be. This was perfect. Quality is excellent, sturdy, and pretty.
