Wooden Curtain Pole Teak Effect 28 x 2400mm
I purchased this item for my newly decorated bedroom. Upon opening the box I found the product not only poorly made but dangerous.
The wall mount brackets were made of a very soft poor grade wood which to my horror had large sharp splinters sticking out from them. The bracket holes were too small for the screws provided and not countersunk, so if i had tried to tighten them the chances are the bracket would have splintered and split. The instructions seemed to be for a different type of pole all together. I didnt get as far as unwrapping the pole or the rings as it went staight back into the box for a refund. I am very surprised as screwfix generally sell quality items and as a customer for 9 years i must say this is the worst product I have ever purchased from the. Screwfix please re-review you stocking of this product.

Nasty 28mm x 2.4m Curt pole.
Quite nasty. The 32mm units had the same issues. The clearance holes on the wall fixings were too small for the screws, which were silver so stood out a mile. There was no countersink so the heads were proud and the colours were all over the place with the rings a completely different colour to the pole (which was much darker than described) which were a different shade again to the finials. The whole units felt cheap and pretty nasty - sorry screwfix, great service but find a better quality product/supplier - this one is letting you down badly.
