Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good, but needs to be more durable This clothesline lasted 2 1/2 years with a little help. After about 18 months, the plastic loop at the end broke, but I replaced it with a metal loop (see attached photo). Now, the plastic cleat on the housing has broken (see the other attached photo). That cleat is essential to keep the line tight to hold the weight of the laundry, and its breaking is the reason I have to replace the unit now. Otherwise, I like this thing but wish it would have lasted longer. By the way, I have found that the line must be wrapped around the cleat twice to support a modest load of laundry; but when I wrap it twice, it will hold plenty. If I wrap it only once, the line will slip and not hold the clothes up. October 14, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What I Needed Purchased back in November. I was looking for a clothesline that was not permeant, and could be stored when not needed.I do have concerns about the durability only time will tell. Overall I'm happy with the unit. January 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Worst ever This item is flawed from the get-go. The tightening apparatus is built onto the "swivel" clothesline storage and thus creates a slack when the unit swivels that cannot be overcome. The clothesline unit I replaced after years of use had the tightening apparatus built onto the "stationary" hinge and thus when the line was stretched and tightened it stayed taut. So, only buy this unit if you 1) want your laundry on the ground and 2) want to spend time figuring out how to be able to use it, which I did, with some eye hooks. Not exactly the efficacy I was looking for in the product. September 30, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by new version not usable as is I have had two of these for about 5 years that have lasted with minor issues. Just bought a new one for a third line and the plastic coating around the line has changed. It is much softer and stretchier. This is probably great in colder weather, as the stiffer line cracked when I used it in late fall. However, the line is so much softer that it does not catch. After the 5th T-shirt, the line started to slip out of the wheel. I added packing tape to the line at the point that I need it to catch and that seems to be holding it in place. However the line is also stretchier, so even without moving it is inching toward the ground much more than the previous plastic would allow. I only have the line out about 20 feet and only have 10 feet of clothing on it. July 17, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product, fits our needs. Easy to install & works good. This was a replacement of one we had before that lasted quite a few years. Unfortunately, it appears that they used even more plastic in this latest model, which seems to not hold up over time. August 12, 2014
