Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HandyManny YOU NEED TO USE THE CLEAT!
I just installed the clothes line, but have not actually used it. I noticed several buyers complained the unit would not hold even a light load. I think those individuals may be missing a key feature. There is a cleat on the bottom of the reel closure. Once you hook the free end of the cord to it's end point, you need to wrap the cord around the cleat (see picture). This will keep the cord from unreeling.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IOU2 Best purchase ever? No, but we're happy with it.
We wanted a part time close line without taking up our limited yard space. This is exactly what we were looking for.

Product was just what my wife wanted to go across our screened in porch. Works great and can be lifted off it having company on porch. Great price.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GratefulKen Still working after at least 10 years. Two minor issues.
I've used one occasionally for at lest 10 years, and possibly closer to 15. Buying additional one while I save money to replace my broken dryer.
Two minor issues. The little cleat that secures the line tight when extended does not hold very well. I simply installed a $2 plastic cleat (like those used on boats) underneath. Also, one year, wasps made a nest inside, a squirt of bee and wasp killer, and a rinse with a hose took care of that, and now I just make sure it is retracted when not in use. I probably installed with beefier hardware than included because that how i do things (but don't remember a dozen years back).
