These brackets were precisely what I needed to hang some curtain rods from a ceiling. Similar items from designer sites were expensive, overly ornate and less appropriate for my purpose. I needed something simple and unobtrusive. These were easy to order, came quickly with lots of communication. The accompanying screws were a bit short but the threads were nice and sharp, and since I was screwing into studs they held beautifully. I could not be more pleased with the result. I'm so happy I found this site. I saved tons of money on this purchase and could not be happier with the result.
