I hate those shower curtain rods that ae suposed to stay up by the magic of tensile strength. They never do. Ours certainly doesn't.

It does hold up with the magic of duct tape, though.

Is that rod a straight shot or does it have an "L" bend about two thirds of its length down ?

I have one of the L bend type and had to install it with some really BEEFY stainless steel wood screws. Have always felt that it ought to have an attachment to the ceiling at or near the "L" bend.

Would be a great solution, except this is an apartment- I'm not sure they'd appreciate me putting something in the wall like that. Duct tape is as much as I care to push my luck in that respect.

Have you tried telling them that it's broken?

Part of the point of living in apartments is that when things that are part of the apartment that are supposed to work break, it gets fixed.

And you may want to be careful about using duct tape for repairs. Duct tape can actually be pretty hard on walls, depending on the paint and if it's actually in contact with the walls.
