Answer: 
Hi bobbir. We suggest burying the pole in a hole that is about 20 inches deep. That will have the line itself approximately 66 inches (5.5 feet) off the ground. If you want the line higher, dig a shallower hole; deeper, dig a deeper hole.
Installation Instructions:
1. Dig a hole 8-12 inches in diameter and 20 inches deep. Taper the hole so it is larger at the top. Fill the bottom of hole approximately

Hi bobbir. We suggest burying the pole in a hole that is about 20 inches deep. That will have the line itself approximately 66 inches (5.5 feet) off the ground. If you want the line higher, dig a shallower hole; deeper, dig a deeper hole.
Installation Instructions:
1. Dig a hole 8-12 inches in diameter and 20 inches deep. Taper the hole so it is larger at the top. Fill the bottom of hole approximately 3-inches deep with small rock.
2. Rest the lower pole on the bed of rocks and pour approximately 12 inches of concrete into the hole around it. Use level to align the pole vertically. Allow the concrete to set fully before attaching clothesline.
3. Once concrete is set, fill the remaining space with dirt.
That's a 20-inch hole, 3 inches of rock, 12 inches of concrete, and 5 inches of dirt. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi artflausa. This is a single pole (that comes in 3 pieces). To set up a clothesline, you'll need two poles. Now that is covered, the distance between poles is up to you. 15 feet seems to be a good balance between hanging space and minimal sagging in lines. We don't recommend exceeding 50 feet, but again, that's simply a function of how low lines will dip.

Answer: 
Hi Ir0584, I'm not sure if another manufacturer has something like that available. Right now, we don't. But we hear you, and we are looking to options for making one. I'm sorry that doesn't solve your immediate concern though! If it's sagging lines you're fighting, you might try a clothesline prop to support your clothesline in the middle. Good luck!

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 26 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not impressed The idea of it is great--albeit (IMHO) expensive. The reality of it is another thing. You have to order two of this item to get an actual clothesline you can hang clothes on and, like other reviewers have written, damaged product is NOT uncommon. I took all of my pieces out and looked at them and thought it looked okay, cemented in the two base pieces and then, as I began to assemble the other pieces, 48 hours later, realized that one of the pieces actually was bent and in unbending it, it would break. Additionally though, pieces that were supposed to be in the box (little white caps--not even sure what they were for) were not, and another piece (cap for the top of the whole unit) wasn't in one of the boxes and the one in the other box broke going into place (not a complicated or difficult task, it just doesn't fit where it clearly belongs). But, let me get to, what I think is the most obnoxious part of this...they don't stock this in stores so while you can return it to the store, you then have to re-order online and wait, again, for a new box that may or may not be bent or missing pieces. If you can build your own clothesline, I think you will be happier than spending more than $100 and dealing with all of this ridiculous stuff. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Still great after 4 years!! Clothesline is well made and was easy to assemble. My friend cemented the posts into the ground and it was done! April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Easy to assemble, looks great, should provide years of use. September 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty good except If your looking for poles these are pretty solid. Just a couple of things keep it from getting five stars. First the cross bar is weak. As you tighten clothes lines it tends to bend under tension. Remember to start with the middle lines first and move to the outside lines. Second the finish may be powder coated but it has very little slip, mar and abrasion resistance. My cross bars chipped when I hit them a turnbuckle used to tighten the line and it showed abrasion from shipping despite being packaged in plastic. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clothesline installed The posts are in the ground. We're waiting for the concrete to cure. Maybe in a year I can say how the posts have weathered. For now, they look nice, and I assume they will perform as expected. The product arrived on time and undamaged. I gave the ratings I did because the product seems to be as advertised, and the price was reasonable. August 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would not recommend, In fact, I am replacing this after one year! Bought this last summer and installed it. It has wiggled the entire time. It was very difficult to string the lines up. Even though it is cemented in the ground, the top pole moves just enought that when we pulled one line tight on one end, and then tried to pull the other end's line tight, the first side line would sag. It was a never ending battle to get tight lines. I am very unhappy with this product and have contacted a welder to make me one instead. Dont waste your money. The other reviews lead you to believe that it is very sturdy when in fact it is very cheaply made. I was so antsy to get one in the ground at our new home, that I put it in, when I should have listened to my gut and returned it! March 22, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It's Really Short We haven't had it up very long, so I don't know how durable it is, but it seems to be well-constructed. The big problem is that it is short, and I wish someone had pointed that out. It is not 86" above the ground. We live in Western New York, where the frost line is much lower than 18 inches. To install it correctly without being crooked come spring, it would have been 4 feet tall! We rigged it to be taller, and I hope it holds, but it would have been nicer to find a product that was just tall enough to begin with. The problem is that this is one of the very few T-assembly clotheslines on the market period. So the construction is good, and if you live somewhere more southerly, it's probably great. Here, in the land of ice and snow, look for something taller or prepare to be creative. Even installed to the recommended height, it's not that tall. July 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clotheline To echo another person who reviewed the product: We, too, went to Home Depot and ordered the product while at the store. It seemed like there would be two poles, BUT it is one pole. You have to order a quantity of 2 if you want a free standing clothesline. From what we can see with the initial delivery, the product looks great. BUT, we have to wait yet another week to know for sure because neither Home Depot nor us could figure out that we really needed a quantity of 2. Disappointed in Home Depot for not bringing this to our attention as we were ordering at the store (and recognizing that we, too, have accountability here!). September 28, 2014
