Installing D-Shaped Shower Rods

D-style shower rods are a unique solution to putting up a shower curtain around a tub/shower that only has one wall for mounting. The back bar allows you to hang a curtain that doesn't move, protecting the wall behind. The other three sides of the rod hold the moveable curtain. This product is one of our best sellers, and our customers say, "Thanks!" for offering such a unique, hard-to-find product.

These shower rods are easy to install!
