    Hi all

    We've moved into a house a while back and are beginning to think about redecorating - it was pretty much liveable but could do with a fresh lick of paint etc.

    Anyway - I've noticed the heavy curtain pole is slightly higher on the right as you look at it.
    However, I am a little hesitant to start messing as the fixings are screwed in at a 45 degree angle so may be a pain to adjust (new screw would hit the course of the old screw unless I moved the fixture laterally and I currently don't have a drill guide to help with the angle).

    The wall is plasterboard with brick behind.

    Anyway - for the sake of 1.5 cm is it worth changing?

    Is it not possible to pack the left hand bracket to position the rail higher on that side?

    Not worth changing as you're right about the angled screw. Paint it white - it won't notice so much.

    Cheers all. My old man thinks it would be a nightmare to adjust too so I'm going to hang the curtains and leave as is all being well.
