Product Description

Product Description

This is the easiest method to insert a ground socket for a Leifheit (or any 5 cm diameter) rotary clothes line pole. The socket has a spiral screw so that it can be wound into the lawn with the bar provided. It is necessary to ensure that the screw is almost upright, but the advantage of this product is that adjust may be made once the socket is in the lawn. Also, should the soil soften and the Rotary begin to lean, the socket can again be adjusted returning the rotary to vertical. Should the Rotary Clothes Line need to be relocated, it is easy to simply "unscrew" the socket from the lawn and insert in the new location.Besides being used as a replacement, additional sockets may be purchased to provide an alternative location for the Rotary Clothes Line. Supplied by Leifheit, a major European brand of well designed quality houseware products.

Product Description

The centry ground socket is a fast and practical solution for the Leifheit rotary dryers: It can be put in the ground with the included turnable bar – without having to dig a hole or using concrete. The main advantage of this socket is that it may be centered after it is in place thanks to its centry ring. The centry ground socket is suited for all Leifheit rotary dryers as well as all other rotary dryers with a diameter of 50 mm.

• With this ground socket the dryer will always be stable
• Incl. turnable bar

The Leifheit Centring Ground Spike is a bit of a monster. Whilst you may think it seems a little pricey, it is EXTREMELY well made, and short of smacking it with a sledge hammer, will just about survive anything.

Even though it is self centring, you do still need to be pretty accurate when you screw it in. I prepared the ground with a good few buckets of water, and I used an old crow bar to make an initial pilot hole.

Screwing the beast into the ground still took a bit of effort, and I used a piece of steel tubing to gain some additional leverage.

Once in to the required depth, and having installed the mower shield, I was ready to go. I was gratified that I only needed to make a very minor adjustment to get it just right.

I know some people are not happy to have this 2 or 3cm piece of plastic jutting out of their lawn, but the alternative for me was to concrete in a more basic spike.

I'm happy enough, and if I ever move, I can always unscrew it and take it with me.

Leifheit 85607 Centring Rotary Clothes Line Ground Socket for 5cm clothes Lines Centring Poles for me was the solution of having my rotary line in my back garden without having to use cement.
It was easy enough put into the ground after doing what was recommended by the makers of dampening the ground which I did do, though I was unable to put it in the ground myself as I simply had not got the necessary strength required even after moistening the ground.
After getting the socket twisted down into the ground using a long metal bar which is supplied, this is the heaviest part of the package as the actual socket is made from a tough, strong plastic material. You also are provided with a three plastic pieces which when connected or in a round shape which provides protection from lawn mowers. This is put roughly three cent-imetres from the top of the socket(above ground). After this it is the matter of putting your dryer in the actual socket, at the top of the socket is a plastic dial which when you first put in is at Number 1, straighten at Number 2 then lock your line at Number 3 which locks your rotary dryer firmly.
Why I do like this actual socket is mainly the neatness, and the second main reason I can easily remove the dryer after folding up the main dryer and store in the shed while not in use especially through the main winter. There is also a cap which is neatly connected to the socket which is kept safe as it is actually attached to the socket, when I remove the dryer for storage etc I simply put the cap on tightly which prevents the socket filling with water or debris such as leaves or other dirty material.
For me personally I would recommend the Leifheit Socket for the rotary dryers it is also available in other sizes which will suit various sizes or other makes of rotary dryers.

This is a monster of a fitting and frankly I would not like it in my lawn as it leaves a rather big bit sticking out. Not far of the size of a half a house brick. You cannot mow over this fitting, you need to mow around it. There is a plastic disc supplied that goes around the fitting that stops the grass growing for a couple of inches around the unit and you can just lawnmower over this disc. If this disc is not used then I think you would need to trim the grass with shears or a strimmer.

The idea is that you screw the fitting into the ground using a metal bar supplied and while it is certainly possible it does take quite a bit of effort. I used an old fitting to act as an extension bar and this made the job much easier.

While the unit is self centering it can only adjust the "lean" to a limited amount so it is still important to get the fitting a vertical as possible. Then minor adjustments can be made to ensure the dryer is vertical.

If you intend fitting this in the lawn then I think it will be ugly but in a border where it can be hidden it will be OK. It is certainly sturdy enough to hold the rotary dryer so I will give it 5 stars when used in the border and I would not use it in the lawn at all.

I bought this to accompany my Leifheit Linomatic Deluxe Rotary Clothes Line with Retractable Lines - 50 mtr (162 ft ) # 82001 and I'm glad I did. When it came, it was bigger than I expected; the screw at the 'ground' end looks like an engine of war. It is carefully machined, no sharp (other than the edge screw thread) or rough bits and it is a reassuring size. It is supplied with instructions, a hole cover, three lock together plates that prevent grass growing next to the post for easier lawn mowing and a sturdy bar to facilitate screwing it into the ground.

Following the instructions, I watered the ground first. This made the ground softer and the screw had no problems entering the ground. It became more difficult as I progressed and needed a good bit of muscle to screw it to the recommended depth. It sits level and solid once in place. There is a setting up process to centre the drier that involves twisting the drier in the socket then locking the socket once the pole is vertical. This only need to be done once but can be re-adjusted at any time. The drier slots into the socket without any preamble. There is a very slight shifting from the vertical as the drier rotates but that doesn't bother me at all. Indeed, it is to be expected, I suppose.

If you get the drier, get this socket. It will save you time and tears. I'm pleased I bought it.
