Takeaway: Quick and easy installation, springless w/firm hold, able to hold a bit of weight.

The telescoping bar is easy to install, but the locking mechanism is different than with spring loaded tension bars so be sure to read the simple illustrated quick installation guide to see how to set it up. When fully retracted it measures 28.5" long. It has a stainless steel two-section bar in the middle and two plastic compression feet on the ends with rubber pads o the ends. To extend it, grasp and rotate the inside bar counter clockwise. This allows you to pull it out of the larger bar. The fully extended length is about 47.5" inches. Once you've reached the desired length, twist the inside bar clockwise to lock the inside bar again, but note that this shortens it a fraction of an inch. So for fine adjustment and tensioning, twist the white nut next to the smaller bar's foot counter clockwise to incrementally increase the length for a tight compression hold (up to about another 1" or so).

I'm using this bar as a towel bar above my kitchen sink for my dish towels. The bar fit nicely in the space between my cabinets, about 43". Installing it only took a minute. The feet do twist a little bit when tightening the tension but it's pretty easy to orient them level. The bar has a pretty tight hold, and I can pull on it a bit without the bar falling down. This is a really nice no-drill solution for setting up the towel bar where I can hang the dish towels up out of the way and access them quickly. The bar could also be used as a window or shower curtain rod (open stall) or closet bar for hanging some lightweight clothes.
