    Easy to Install

    The Retractaway was to replace an existing extending clothelines. The installation was straight forward and simple. The method to tighten the lines is so much easier than the old line.

    Austral Retractaway 40 Clothesline

    What can I say. When you team this wonderful piece of equipment with an undercover location, the initial cost outlay is soon forgotten with the savings in dry clothes. I don’t need an electric clothes dryer at all!

    New Clothesline

    The clothesline was for a property that we rent out so I personally do not know how the item works, however, the tenants are much appreciative of it and say it is wonderful.
