Is there a minimum distance that I have to pull out the lines?
Yes, the Extenda range has a minimum extension of 4m right up to 6.5m. This means you must pull the lines out from the cabinet at least 4m before the lines will lock which prevents lines sagging once you have placed your washing on it.
Can I install the clothesline in the ground instead of on the wall?
Yes you can add 1 or 2 Post Kits to your order if you don’t have a wall available.
What is the Ground Socket for?
If you order a Post Kit with the clothesline, you don’t have to permanently fix the post into the ground. The socket is what you cement in and the post simply slots into this making it removable at any time to make room for a party. Please note it is not recommended to have 2 posts removable with sockets due to the tension of this type of product. The clothesline cabinet post should be permanently fixed.
What is the Mount Bar for?
The Mount Bar is only required if you want to install the clothesline cabinet onto a Post Kit.
Can I attach this to a fence ?
Yes but it is recommended that the receiving end only is attached and to the fence post as this is the most secure part of the fence.
Can I install a retractable clothesline on a wall other than brick?
Yes you can but you will just need to make sure the mounting holes at the back of the cabinet align with the structural supports in the wall. If not then a Post Kit is recommended with the clothesline and install it freestanding in front of the wall.
What is the best height for installing a retractable clothesline?
A general rule of thumb is to install the clothesline so that the lines are approx. 50mm above the users head height. An average height is approx. 1800mm but you can adjust this to suit your requirements.
