HOUSEHOLD ESSENTIALS 40 ft Single Line Retractable Clothesline makes hanging laundry quick and easy. The high impact ABS plastic (crack and heat resistant) case protects the clothesline from the elements and keeps it out of the way when it is not in use. A quick lock cleat keeps the extended line secure and tight, so you have up to 40' of taut line; use only what you need and wrap the excess under the case to secure. With a metal plate providing optimum stability, you can mount this line indoors or out and never trip over a dangling line or wind a loose end around the tree again. Your tree and feet thank you. Perfect for decks, patios, basements and mudrooms, this retractable clothesline gives you a place to hang your clothes when you need it--and not when you don't.

    If you offer a place for customer reviews, why don't you publish them for potential customers to see? I received a replacement line, and it performs no better than the first. Your company has a serious quality control problem.

    Hi Ginny. It's frustrating when product doesn't work, especially when you've gone through the trouble to notify the manufacturer, get a replacement, and still not have success. We've done a QC and product assessment: we are not finding the issues you describe. We sell approx. 25,000 of these clotheslines annually, which makes this situation all the more frustrating--for you and us. It's not great when we can't figure out why something that usually works isn't working for someone--twice. I am sorry for your frustration, and that we haven't been able to solve why the line isn't working for you as we would expect. We do post reviews--good and bad. We don't have all that many as of yet. While 90% of people look for reviews to help them decide on products, only about 10% of people actually write reviews. So we thank you for leaving your review, even if it's a tough one. Your first review was on stand-by as we hoped to hear from you again to post the original and update together. It's true, we'd hoped for a more positive update, but that is not the case. But here is the original with this update, as intended: title, stars, and all: ORIGINAL REVIEW: 9/21/2016 "Great Product" by Ginny, 1 star. "The hook on the end of the line is plastic and broke the first time I extended it. The cleat does not keep the line taut (therefore, the clothes end up on the ground). And after only two uses, the line will not full retract -- about seven feet of line are just hanging there."

    I have been using this item for many years with no problems at all. It sounds like some folks are not reading the instructions? "Wrap the line all the way around the hub". I do this by pushing the reel flat to the wall after putting the line around it. Another tip. Cut a couple inches off the line at the hook and tie a new knot every few months..... line stretches there and will eventually break.

    Thank you for the review: and for reading the directions! I also appreciate your realistic view of how products work, and their lifespan. Thank you for sharing your experience with us and with others. Insights coming from you have more impact than instructions coming from us, sometimes. I hope you continue to have success with your retractable clothesline!

    We used to hang clothes on rope I tide to tree branches and it worked perfectly. So I thought I would but my wife a nice retractable clothes line. Much to my dismay your line won’t hold up the weight of even one small wet area rug 1.5’x 2 without sagging 2 ft. No more clothes can go on. Your latex cord is useless. I would have to put something end between the ends just to try to keep clothes of the ground. My suggestion is stop using engineers or cad computing to figure out real life situations. I’d also like my money back. I guess I’ll go back to rope. I wish I could send u a picture.

    I'm sorry to hear about the frustration. It sounds like the line hasn't been locked after it's extended. The line reaches up to 40 feet, but for shorter distances, it needs to be locked to keep it tight. It uses a wrap lock--a disc under the case that the line wraps around. After the line is extended, take the line closest to the case and wrap it around the disc under the case. This will hold the line so it doesn't droop so dramatically. If the line isn't wrapped, the clothesline will keep extending (out or down) up to 40 feet. This product is one of our longest-running best sellers. But that doesn't make it perfect for everyone. Let us know how it goes!
