Shower Rod Fix

By: Joe Truini

Sometimes it’s just as easy to repair something as it is to replace it. A spring loaded shower rod that has fallen down is a great example. These types of shower rods work under tension, and if the mechanism inside has snapped there will be no tension to hold it.

To fix the problem simply set the rod to the correct length, mark it with tape and then drill two holes through both pieces of the rod. Place stainless steel screws in the holes so that they won’t rust. This will lock the rod into position, but once it’s in place there won’t be any reason to adjust it. Instead of $10-$15 for a new rod you pay for the screws.
