Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stymie56 Came with broken part
I received the product in a damaged and taped up box and although I know that should not count as taking a star away there was also a broken plastic pin used to limit one of the crossbars when open.
The product seems to be sturdy and well built but why do they use small plastic pieces to hold an important part together.
I noticed in the reviews someone else had one of these broken plastic pins also so I guess I will have to take the other reviewers "fix" and do the same.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by User Parallel Dryer Steel 2-Piece Pole, 30-Line 210 ft. Drying Space
I'm overall pleased with the clothes line's performance. We previous had clothes line poles that the lines were attached to our house. We resided our house and did not want to put clothes line hooks into the new siding.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Charlene It's up and ready for laundry.
It was easy to install, and it looks good. There are a few lines we will need to tighten, but otherwise, we are very pleased.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blondie Good replacement for a very old dryer
My old outdoor dryer had become an eyesore, as all the metal parts had rusted and some lines were broken. I was happy to find this replacement online. It arrived promptly and my husband was able to retrofit it into the existing concrete pad. He had to cut down the height by about 6 to 8 inches, but that was no problem. Better to have it too high than too low. My only issue with this product is that the lines are just made of plastic with no inner core so they will stretch out over time. We already had to pull the lines tighter and tie off the excess. I expect to get a lot of use from this product. I love to hang sheets and some clothing out to dry in fresh air. Maybe it will pay for itself over a couple years.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by berrylady Just what I wanted
I have only had this clothesline a couple of weeks, but so far it is just what I was looking for. My old one finally fell completely apart and was happy to find this one at a very reasonable price. It was easy to put up, especially since I already had the hole in the ground, is taller, and the lines are longer than my previous one. Haven't tried sheets yet, but I am sure they will fit better than on the old line. The lines are always to close together for me, but I just skip one or two depending on how much room I need. Overall, it seems to be very sturdy and a good purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rshflute Sturdy and spacious
I have purchased several umbrella-style clotheslines over the years, but I have never been completely happy with them. They either bend or break too easily or don't hold enough clothes. This parallel dryer is made of heavier material and is much more sturdy than anything I have purchased previously. It is also much taller, so some of my longer items (sheets, extra-large bath towels, etc.) don't drag on the ground. And the price was even less than other cheaper versions at other stores. Loving it so far!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cliffsa nice design with some flaws
There are two plastic "pin" that are suppose to limit the cross bars when open. I needed to replace the with 2" 8x32 screws and put a nut on both sides to keep the beams in place. Thought about returning the item, but this mades it work again. These were replaced by the third usage and it is being used for just one person's laundry. Also the lines can get stuck in the hooks one the cross bars. Need to be sure lines are not tangled while putting it up! The first time I used it I was recommending it to everyone. Now unless they are handy and want to pay for something they will need to modify, I do not recommend.
I disagree with the reviews that indicated there were flimsy lines, not the case on mine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Daisyhead Parallel outdoor clothes dryer
I purchased this clothes line to replace one that was similar. I was happy to see that the mechanism which holds the line open is much sturdier than my former model. The entire product has improved features. The item was ordered and arrived as scheduled. I am pleased so far, and would recommend this clothesline. Even though I live in the northeast, I am a huge fan of drying clothes outdoors as much as possible!!
