Light Duty OnlyJul 19, 2008
By Mike B
Product comes as 4 pieces with line fastening/tightening bolts. To erect the pole, 3 piece sleeve poles slide into each other and this is a flawed design. After setting the pole into the ground and attaching the top crossbar, the crossbar will rotate freely as the pole sleeves will swivel by 360 degrees. This makes line tightening awkward. To prevent pole rotation, I drilled and inserted several sheet metal screws into the poles at the sleeve.
Tightening the lines is frustrating for two reasons. First, the line tightening bolts are too short at 2 5/8". This limits your ability to tighten the lines as the bolt should be at least 6" long.
Second, the poles tend to bend or flex during the line tightening process.. Even though I set the poles into concrete footings, the design/thickness of the poles allows them to flex toward each other. In order to get the lines tight, you must tighten and re-tighten the lines several times before you realize you have gone to the expense and trouble of setting a piece of junk into concrete footings.
Finally, the product description explains that the pole should be set into the ground by only 10". Simply put, do not try this unless you are setting each pole firmly into a large mass of at least 2 60lb bags of concrete. I sank my poles 20" into the concrete footing.
I recommend purchasing a good quality one piece unit and avoid this product.

Poor designOct 20, 2012
By Broncos Fan
The poor design here is that you need to assemble the poles using three sections of pipe. This causes it to be weak and a poor design. The tension from tightening the clothesline causes both poles to bend toward each other. Thus, the upper poles tend to slip off and bend once you tighten the lines more.
Apparently the pipes have been factory modified and now the pipes have a groove that makes it fit into another pipe, but they don't go into one another far enough or deep enough.
The lines (not included) need to be very tight. This clothesline pole is equipped for seven lines.
The eyebolts that came with the set are too short, not enough threads. The eyebolts need to have longer threads so you can tighten the lines. I replaced two of the eyebolts, one on each pole at opposite ends. This was needed for tightening.
MY MODIFICATION OF THE POLES:
Along with the two larger eyebolts, I purchased two 10-foot length of inch & a half pipe that I cut to 91" and drove it into the ground 5 or 6 inches to make the entire pole rigid. So, I put a pipe inside another pipe.
SEE PICTURE of BEFORE and AFTER on this product page.
What the company should have done is TEST this before you put it on the market. Erect, and wash several loads of clothes for complete test.
It winded up costing me extra, but a REAL clothesline is better than those jackleg umbrella things! .......Rizzo

keep shopping for anotherApr 18, 2015

Disappointing. Very hard to get each line properly tightened as the poles move making the opposite side loose. Visibly leans.

Sturdy clotheslineAug 04, 2007
I wanted to dry my sheets outside, and this type of clothesline has worked out well. I purchased two poles and they arrived quickly. They snap together securely and it's easy to bolt the eye pieces to the crossbar. We dug two holes 18 inches deep, filled the holes with concrete mix, and secured the poles. Then we purchased plastic clothes line and attached them to the 7 eyes. We placed the poles 3 feet from the house, and they are about 16 feet apart.
This product is excellent. With this set up, I can dry at least two large loads of clothes. The clotheslines are 6 feet from the ground surface, so they're high enough to dry sheets, but not too high to comfortably reach.
Having a clothesline is an easy way to "go green". Despite what people think, I've not had any problems with bird droppings nor bugs on my clothes. The plastic clothes lines do stretch, but with the 7 eyes, it's been easy to re-tighten the clothesline.

POLES WAY TOOOOOO WEAK - BENT!Oct 10, 2012
We purchased two sets of these poles - hired someone to put them in properly, and when they put the lines on and just barely started to tighten them, the poles both leaned inward.... bent towards the lines. Now they have to go buy a heavy steel pole to put INSIDE each of them since they are set in concrete. They are just way too weak, and come in three sections, which make them even weaker. I would never recommend these for any use! ... but certainly not for clotheslines with the tightening of the lines, and the weight of the clothes. What a disappointment.
