    We've had one in frequent use for about 18 months, really good value and works well.

    But sooner or later the blue plastic clips will break, I think that they should be stronger, definitely the weak point and spoils an otherwise good product.

    I repaired mine with a 4x40mm carbine clip (about 90p) from the local hardware store, functional but not elegant.

    It appears that the Vileda Cordomatic (shown as currently unavailable on Amazon) may have metal clips, but I have no experience of that product.

    Really pleased with this product. Was easy enough to put up (by my other half) and is now really sturdy. To start with I wasn't sure the lines looked that strong, but actually they have had some huge loads and a toddler hanging off the clothes and they are fine. I have not had a problem with the lines unhooking themselves from the tabs, I just hook them round a couple of times and they are not going anywhere. Maybe its the way we are hooking though. I pull some excess from the reel and then use that to hook it round and let it take up the slack again, so any pull on the already extended line just tightens it further. I also like the fact that when the washing is dry is just winds back into the unit rather than having a line or rotary airer always there.

    This wee gadget is cheap as chips, and well worth it.

    It took me 10 minutes in total to install. It comes with all necessary parts - 4 raw plugs, 4 screws, 2 hooks, 2 pins, a bracket and the unit itself.

    I attached bracket using the 4 screws to a wooden fence post, the back of the unit slides over the bracket and is secured in place by sliding the 2 pins in through both the unit and the bracket. I suspect it'll take longer than 10 minutes if you're putting it up on a wall using the raw plugs. I screwed in the hooks on either side of my shed.

    It's perfect! I see people complaining about the line sagging - as you can see by the picture of the item, on the unit itself there's 2 little.... nubs? You attach the line to the hook, then make the line taught by hooking it around those. The lines themselves are long - so long I could probably install extra hooks and double them back to make more line space. I have washing poles for height, but reckon the line would be okay without them.

    I had the problem on my old line where the washing used to slide down and bunch together. So far I've not encountered this - the line is kind of rubbery, so I guess it's down to that.

    When you're finished the unit can be removed super easily to avoid weather wear and to prevent any beasties making it their home. I just stick it in my peg bag.

    All in all I'm very happy with this. It's nice to be able to run around my garden freely on a non-washing day without the fear of my neck being cheese-wired, should I feel inclined to do so....

    I can't dissagree more with the 1 star ratings, I am using this line - both of the 15M lengths are extracted about 12m and 13m respectively.

    I have had more than a fair amount of washing on each line, including duvets and heavy clothes items, and the line does dip a little but has never snapped, drooped, doropped or come lose. I am also not helping the line up with any proping tools, the line is free and only held up by the 4 screws that hold the main unit and each of the hooks for the retractable fixing. I have each line wrapped around the plastic retensions only once each.

    For those that have had issues, have you tried contacting Minky and seeing if they have a return/replace policy, i am pretty sure they would be more than happy to help.

    For those interested in this though i would recommend it and i would buy again if i needed to, perhaps as an additional line.

    For the person who had issues with duvets, have you tried using both lines to hold the duvet, have them slightly apart and put the duvet over both to help support the weight? I dont know what size duvet you are referring to but this would certainly help.

    My lines are about 12" - 16" apart (from the unit to the other end where the hooks are) so throwing heavier items over the 2 would help balance any weight issues.

    Great little Product does exactly what it says on the box, but will need a line prop for the middle of the line as it sags when lots of washing on.

    We've bought a second one of these Minky retractable washing lines now. We extend it to approx 12 metres and use it on a very frequent basis. It works perfectly well as long as you wrap the line around the bottom bit twice.

    The first one lasted 15 months and my only criticism is that after a while it does not retract the entire line anymore as the mechanism wears out. That's why I have given it 4 stars and not 5.

    Other than that - and especially for that price - it's absolutely fine!
