This article features the results of our product evaluation of the new "Premium EZ Glide Shower Curtain Rings".

I was excited about adding this product to our line of Premium Products because of the positive feedback we have received from our consumer testing.

In our consumer testing we not only looked at overall satisfaction but we also dug a little deeper to discover exactly what it was about this product that consumers liked so much.

It came down to three things

  • Functionality
  • Durability
  • Value

In addition to our consumer panel, we did our own “in house” evaluation of the EZ-Glide Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings so we could see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.

We evaluated the EZ Glide Shower Curtain Rings base on three criteria:

  • Do they slide easily on shower curtain rods?
  • Do they hang up on shower curtain rod joints? (Many shower curtain rods expand to fit an enclosure by having one part of the rod screw into the other part of the rod. This creates a joint in the shower curtain rod at about the 1/3 mark where the shower curtain hooks get a lot of movement.)
  • How well do they stay on the shower curtain and shower curtain rod while the shower curtain is being opened and closed.
  • Appearance
  • Durability and Value

We took a typical Shower Curtain Rod like you find at most retailers and put the EZ-Glide to the test.

Here is what we found based on our evaluation criteria.

Do they slide easily on shower curtain rods?

As the name implies, this shower curtain ring has stainless steel roller balls at the top of the ring where the ring comes into contact with the shower curtain rod. Since these roller balls spin on the stainless steel ring, they slide very easily on the shower curtain rod.

Do they hang up on shower curtain rod joints?

It appears that the shower curtain rod joints were the inspiration for this product. The stainless steel roller balls on the EZ Glide were large enough that they climbed over the joints on the test rod. The test rod was chosen because the joints were typical of shower curtain rods found at most retailers.

"Zip right along the rod and over the annoying joint!!"

These zip right along the rod & right over the joint that is so annoying with other shower curtain rings. Nice quality. So nice in fact that my daughter saw these in the mail first & snagged them for her shower & keeps telling me how nice they are! Had to go take a shower in her shower, so I could write this review. Need to get another set for my shower now! Nice product. Will probably never need the lifetime guarantee, as they are good quality, but nice to know they have one. Nice tight clips so they don't pop out and off like so many I've had. Will try and post a video review when I get back from a trip in a couple weeks so you can see the slick roller action and classy look of them. Glad I got them! Thanks. See Amazon Testimonial Here

How well do they stay on the shower curtain and shower curtain rod while the shower curtain is being opened and closed.

The EZ Glide Stainless Steel Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings completely enclose the shower curtain rod and fasten much the same way a safety pin fastens. These will not come off of the shower curtain rod without being intentionally unfastened. The EZ Glide Shower Curtain Rings appeared to be stronger than the shower curtain itself. We did not test this to the point of breaking anything but it is clearly over kill strong for holding a shower curtain.

Appearance

The EZ Glide Stainless Steel Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings are made of Stainless Steel. They will not rust so they will maintain their appearance for a lifetime of use. They are not overly ornate and will only match stainless and chrome. Since most shower curtain rods are chrome or stainless steel, this is a good match.

These are not the right choice if one is looking to match cooper, nickel or other metal colors. These are also not the right choice if one is looking to match other colors in the bathroom. The EZ Glide Stainless Steel Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings are the color of stainless steel.

Durability and Value

The EZ Glide Stainless Steel Roller Ball Shower Curtain Rings Are priced from $14.95 to $24.95 depending on where they are purchased. Since they are made of Stainless Steel and have a Lifetime Warranty, they will outlast many sets of shower curtains and shower curtain liners.

"Stole These From My Mom"

My mom had ordered these and when I saw them I asked if I could have them. I have been having a hard time finding shower curtain rings that do not snag on the rod, but these rings with their ball rollers are fabulous, they just slide along with no problems. I am going to order two more pairs. One for my other bathroom and one for mom. See Amazon Testimonial Here

"Pleasantly Surprised"

I have been looking for shower curtain rings that won't get stuck on the center of the tension rod. Well, I finally found them! I no longer have to slowly feed the curtain open or closed. It freely pushes back without any effort. I'm so glad I found this product after searching for years! See Amazon Testimonial Here
