5.0 out of 5 stars Well-made, work great!, September 13, 2010
This review is from: Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings - Polished Chrome
These rings are well-made and work great. Much smoother sliding than the old plastic hooks or metal rings with no rollers.
Based on the description, they are made of chrome-plated brass so should never rust. I checked this with a small magnet so I can at least verify that they are not plated steel, which tends to rust over time.

Since these rings are top-heavy, it can be a little frustrating when first attaching the shower curtain since the rings keep flipping upside down. But all is fine once the weight of the curtain is holding them right-side up. If you lift up on the curtain, some of the rings may again flip upside down.

There is about 1-1/2" measured vertically between the bottom edge of the shower rod and the bottom bend in the rings. This is the approximate amount of vertical space you have inside the rings for hanging your shower curtain. Some fancy curtains with over-sized grommets or a lot of material between the grommets and the top edge of the curtain may not fit (will drag on the shower rod), but most standard curtains should be fine.

As an added bonus, based on a little research, it appears that these rings might actually be made in the USA.

Larry's wife here. We had similar hooks--if not identical. I've noticed we get less flipping when using a shower curtain without grommets.

No, unfortunately these rings are NOT made in the USA, according to Clipperton:

Our RollerRingsTM which are sold through Amazon.com and the majority of our retailers are our High Grade Stainless Steel with Solid Brass Rings and are not Made in the USA.

We do have a Made in USA version which is a 1" RollerRingTM made of a Solid Brass construction. These are only available in a Polished Nickel finish and distributed through Made in USA websites such as:
· MadeinUSAforever.com (http://madeinusaforever.com/roshcurimain.html) and
· USAB2C.com (http://www.usab2c.com/product/polishednickel_showercurtainrings_madeinusa)

Please let us know if you have any further questions or if we may be of further assistance.

Kind Regards,
The Clipperton Team
