Hills Rotary 7 Premium Folding-Head Rotary Clothesline

The Hills Rotary 7 model, also known as the Hills Extra Large Iconic Rotary Hoist Clothesline, is the midsized model in the Hills premium folding-head rotary range. There are three different sizes in the range:  Rotary 6Rotary 7Rotary 8. This premium rotary range has special features. 

This comes with a line retainer cord, so when the clothesline is folded up, you simply pull that cord out from the center post and wrap the cord around the arms when they're upright. This then clips into place to keep the arms nice and neat in the upright position.

This is a side shot showing you the locking collar that comes with the ground socket. Once the clothesline has been inserted into the ground socket, the collar simply drops onto the top of the socket and locks into place, keeping the post in the correct position. As you can see, the socket and then the collar going in towards the socket there. 

Once it goes down to the bottom, it just simply clicks into place. The socket is approximately 500mm long. You just need to dig a hole about 600 to 650 mm deep, insert the socket into the hole, and then cement it into the ground.

The sockets come with three spacers. If the height of the clothesline is a little bit low once you've inserted it into the socket, just pull the post back out again and insert one or more of those spacers just to increase the height of the clothesline when it is in the lowered position.

You'll find there is an optional cover to add to your order for new clotheslines. You can simply add that straight into your shopping cart. The covers are a fantastic idea. They give you great shade in your backyard plus it is a completely waterproof material, so it will protect your clothes from the rain allowing them to dry even during the colder winter months.
