It was easy to install and means we can easily hide the clothesline away when not in use
Instructions were clear and concise, and there were no issues installing the ground socket. Everything went to plan and it is just wonderful being able to remove the post and retract the line when not in use - so much more room in the backyard. Happy Days
I ordered.. I paid... it was was delivered promptly on time, nkk on damage, no dramas, happy days.
Overall this is a great product which has an abundance of line and has finally enabled us to limit the use of indoor drying techniques. My only suggestion would be for a 'stabilizer' strut on both sides of the remote post to balance line tensions.
It seemed well designed with options for different heights of clothes lines. Installation was straightforward. There was some play when the post was installed in the socket which made the line seem a bit unstable, but it allows for flexibility in removing and replacing the line as needed.
It was cemented in between pavers and is stable and very neat. The post is easy to place into and remove when necessary.
Hi Robin, thank you for purchasing the Austral ground socket and for your review.
Perfect. Arrived quickly, very happy!
Easy to remove post from the socket. Very happy with this product
Not a huge success as it is not stable enough to support post straight even with gravel around base. Looking for another option as plastic just bends.
Hi Fiona, Thanks for your note and for the installation of sockets you do need to concrete them into the ground and not just put gravel around them. Depending on the size hole you dig, you will need minimum 1 bag and maybe 2 of concrete to correctly install the Austral ground socket so it is stable and strong. Thanks again. Regards, Kate
The response from the company was fantastic and the installer was fantastic, no mess left for me to clean up.
Excellent customer service fast delivery competitive prices ... easy process purchased from the comfort of my home.
Very good product
Prompt delivery of item purchased.
I recently purchased an Austral Retractaway 40 clothesline from Lifestyle Clotheslines. My experiences are as follows: Pros: - Purchase online was quick and easy – Lifestyle support person was friendly and helpful - Delivery was very quick - Product works and has a greater capacity than my old Hills Hoist Cons: - Doing a post to post install means overall cost increases rapidly – over $500 in my case - $90 per post is expensive for what seems to be a cheap, mild-steel post with powder coating - Post is already showing signs of bending - Similarly, $60 for the mount-bar (same cheap materials) also seems excessive for what you get - $63 for the plastic ground-socket is also far from cheap, especially given that there is excessive room for movement when the pole is inserted in the socket, resulting in the post leaning significantly - Line-sag is worse than I expected (more than the quoted 0.5m) despite tensioning the lines as per the instructions. Install the thing higher than you think you need.
I have used Lifestyle Clotheslines for a couple of orders and they always provide fantastic service.
Exactly what we needed, and great help from the sales staff, called me to make sure I ordered the right stuff, lucky they did I made a mistake with my order.

Austral Ground Socket
The Austral ground socket fits all Austral Foldaway rotary clotheslines including both the Foldaway 45 and 51 units, plus the Austral Retractable clothesline posts.
This Austral ground socket allows for either the rotary clothes line or retractable clothes line post to be removed from the ground if required after installation.
The Galvanized Pin that comes with the ground socket is used to set the height of the Austral FoldAway Rotary units during the installation process.
The Pin is punched through the side of the Ground Socket at various pre-determined points to fix the nominated height and allow easy use of the clothesline. No pin required when used with Austral Retractaway Post.
If you have any questions on the use of the Austral ground socket please feel free to call on 1300 798 779.
