I had this problem and I went to the hardware store and bought a package of two small round things that are meant to keep a closet rod in place. Each has a small hole in the center for a screw. Mine hasn't fallen down since.

Usually to adjust them you turn them in one direction (or the other), for either shortening or lengthening. Adjust it a little longer than you need and push in to put in place. They do loosen for some reason, so it may have to be adjusted periodically.

Take it down and screw it out until it is longer than the space between the two walls. Then you'll have to really PRESS it back up but it should hold.

If the problem is that your rod screws itself back in and gets too small that way . . . I'd say if some duct tape on it doesn't keep it from screwing itself in, pitch it and get a new one.

MY DAUGHTER HAD THE SAME PROBLEM . I HAD HER TAKE A COUPLE OF SMALL PIECES OF TRIM WOOD AND SCREW THEM UNDER EACH SIDE ONTO THE WALL. IT WAS JUST ENOUGH TO BRACE IT UP SO IT WOULDNT FALL.

HTH

Mine started slipping because the rubber tips had lost their grippy surface and would slide down on the slick ceramic tile. I cut one inch squares (approx.) off one of my foam emery boards and placed them on both ends. The gritty texture helped grab each surface. I believe I've also used the plain tan emery boards in the same way....years ago. My daughter has used good old duct tape! Tear off a small strip and fold it up so it sticks to itself but also has the sticky side exposed on all sides. Stick that between the ends of the rod and the wall.
