Easy to use, neat washing line

This is the second of these retractable lines, my last one lasted about about 5 years. It has regular use. Line is always ready to use in the garden and quick to put away. I hate to see washing lines left out so this suits me well.

Is there a way of locking the line so it remains taut during use?

10 Answers

By hooking the line around two hooks which are underneath the plastic box

Helpful?

yes twirl round the notch on case twice holds perfect

Helpful?

Yes. There's a part of the casing moulded in a way to allow the line to be wound twice and lock on itself. There is some give in the line, but it appears quite strong, and with a support pole should be OK.

Helpful?

Underneath the main unit there's some plastic hooks - you just wrap the line round it once you've extended it & that keeps it taught. Very easy.

Helpful?

It has to be wrapped around a plastic toggle. A little awkward but stable.

Helpful?

Yes you have to wind it round the cleat. Bit of a fiddle but it is ok

Helpful?

I was worried about this myself but it has a little hook at the bottom that you wrap the line round and it stays taut when you put your washing on. It works really well, I also use a washing rod in the middle to hang the line higher.
Hope this helps.

Helpful?

Yes there are locators to tie both lines secure

Helpful?

you need to wrap the line around the prongs twice nice and tight, then it shouldn't slip when hanging out your washing :)

Helpful?

Yes. Look at the bottom of the unit and you'll find 2 moulded bits of plastic which you can use to wrap each line around. They seem very solid and will stop either line retracting during use.

Helpful?
Are the two lines too close to each other when both in use?

In the picture the gap between one line and the other seems very small, did people find this caused a problem when using both lines to hang washing?

I have two posts.so one line hook I pass over hook on one post and attach to second post.I then attach second line hook to second post which gives me three lines This creates three lines in triangular shape perfect. I wouldn't use them on one post.

Helpful?

no I have put my 2 lines quite far apart , so this was not a problem at all

Helpful?

is it a steel coated line

8 Answers

Just bought this item, the line is not steel coated. The best way i can describe it is twisted nylon covered with a PVC tubing. I had one prevoiusly and it lasted around 7 years, so would definetly recommend. Hope that helps!

No ! its saggy plastic :-(

Helpful?

No its plastic but very strong

Jimbo, it is a plastic coated line

Helpful?

It doesn't feel as though there was a steel core. I think it is a plastic line.

Helpful?

No it is plastic coated.

Helpful?

No

Helpful?

No. The line is Nylon. Nylon lines do tend to stretch over time with use, but this wouldn't be a problem with the line being retractable as it can be tightened each time its fastened. Steel wouldn't be an appropriate material due to it having less flexure than nylon so it would be more difficult to recoil. Steel lines would be better suited to fixed lines.
