Good solid unit and a worthy choice for adding washing lines to your garden.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 September 2019
This is a good product, cheaper alternatives are available but I'd buy this one again if I had to choose again. It is the first retractable line I have bought, having previously just laid lines in a more permanent fashion. This is definitely the was to go though - retractable. It is a solid unit and had a fairly subtle colouring and look though it is quite a large item. I screwed it into a fence post one one side of the garden and then drilled two holes into the high brick garden wall on the opposite site. The supplied Rawl plugs and hooks were then installed into these holes I drilled into the wall. They fit in there solidly, the hooks seem long enough and strong enough to hold the weight of the fully loaded line easily. The lines retract very well and the plastic plugs and the ends of the lines for a good seal in the housing when retracted to keep out water and insects. It can be a little fiddly to unwrap the lines from the locking setup underneath the unit after you are done and want to retract the line but with practice I have gotten the knack of this. I am not sure how long the lines are as my garden width is not so great but I think there is plenty for most gardens. I am impressed with the unit and the fact it comes with all the fittings too. I hadn't actually realised this and had bought some hooks separately that I didn't have to use in the end.
