There are 2 knobs on the sides of the case. Tighten the lines with knob that looks like a gear (knob B), and then turn the smooth knob on the other side of the case (knob A) to lock the lines. If just one line is off, you can remove the cover on the handle (pop off the end cap and the cover slides off) and retie lines one at a time (just make sure it is retied the same way it was tied the first time).
How to Tighten Lines
There will be some sag in clotheslines always. They should never be so tight that there is no give. We do recommend installing the unit 6 feet high to account for dip. There are also things likes clothesline props, which are used with many free standing models to help hold up longer lines.
Set Up Options
The 15-7 has 2 set-up options. Which you choose, and how your space is laid out, will decide if you need to purchase the #42-0 Assembly Pole in addition to the retractable dryer.
Mount the dryer and the receiver bracket to opposite flat surfaces, i.e., walls. Just make sure the wall materials are strong enough to support the weight of the dryer, lines, and wet clothes! Visit your local hardware store to find the appropriate hardware (bolts, screws, etc.) for your mounting surface.
Option 1: Wallmount Dryer and Receiver Bracket
Common installations: Basements, Laundry rooms, Porch
When a second wall isn't available, the #42-0 assembly pole (sold separately from the dryer or with the #157420 set) can be used to anchor the receiving bracket. Again, the main unit should be mounted to a strong wall or strong wooden post (as in a sturdy deck railing). The assembly post is only used to mount the receiving bracket, which is included in the #15-7.
Option 2: Combination Wallmount Dryer and Free-Standing Receiver Bracket
Common Installations: Outdoors, Decks, Patios, Yards

Great Product5 of 5 Posted by: Chriss on 02/28/2016
I bought mine from Fred Meyers in Washington State 24 years ago when we moved into our house. I use it all summer long. It still works great, just a little loose on the lines. I am looking at a new one or a way to tighten each line separately.
Not as good as orignal model 14 years ago3 of 5 Posted by: Jan on 06/03/2016
Gave this new model to my brother in law after his original retractable clothesline broke after 14 years of use. Was happy to find this [through] Amazon and then was shipped from your company. He just informed me that the new one has broken and its not only 1 year old. He only uses in in spring and summer so it hasn't been used very much. There is a plastic part, which used to be metal, that has broken and he can't fix. Do you have parts for replacement and how do we order them from you?
