It is always recommended to allow an extra metre on top of the diameter of the head, just for a bit of clearance around the clothesline so that it can rotate nice and freely. If you allow a space of about approximately four metres across, this gives enough clearance for the clothesline to rotate.
With the six lines that come with this particular model, this will give you a total line space of 34 metres, so it still has really good line capacity for a small rotary clothesline. The outside line is approximately two metres long. You can fit a queen size sheet onto that line, but you will need to fold the ends of the sheet over to make it fit onto the line.
As with all folding-head rotary clotheslines, they do come with a ground socket. This allows you to make the clothesline removable if you want to use the backyard for a party. This is the part where you'll dig a hole, and install and cement that socket into the ground, then the clothesline post simply drops into the socket, allowing it to be removable at a later stage.
As with all Hills outdoor clothesline products, they are backed by their 10-year warranty. This particular model being the smallest of the rotary clotheslines is generally suitable for about one to two people.
There is a line retainer cord built into the clothesline, so when you do want to fold the clothesline up, you simply push the blue latch button to release the arms and then they simply fold down. Then you pull that line retainer cord out from the centre of the post, just wrap the cord around the arms, and clip it on to hold the arms in place when they're upright.
With the premium models, they have a nice, neat line-retaining system, so no line clips on top of the arms, but a nice, neat line retainer and cap to keep everything nice and tidy. On the ends of the arms, of course, they do have the hooks to put clothesline coat hangers on as well so you can hang up your business shirts.
These models have a very nice ergonomically designed clothesline handle as well. It's just a simple winding around to raise and lower the clothesline. It's a nice, easy, very simple, very light operation on the premium models. The premium models generally have a more modern design compared to the Everyday models.
The majority of the ground socket will be installed into the ground. The clothesline simply locates into that socket with the pin that's already installed on the post. Simply drop that in, and then just turn the locking collar into the socket to keep it in place.
The locking collar simply hooks into the hole, and then just rotates clockwise slightly to lock it into place. It's about 500 millimeters long, so you will need a hole of about 600 millimeters deep to install that ground socket. The sockets also come with three spacers, so once you've actually installed the socket, place the post into the ground socket.
If the height is a little bit low, you can place one or more of those spacers into the socket, and they'll just raise the height of the clothesline for you.
This model does have a Clothesline Cover you can purchase with it. You'll find there is an optional cover to add to the order when you're buying your brand-new clothesline. They do offer excellent shade and also great ability to protect your clothes from the rain, and also things like bird droppings and bat droppings. It stops all the staining of your clothes from outside elements.
