Product Description

Nobody likes the time wet clothes and laundry takes to dry. That's why a clothes wringer is so useful in removing much of the water to help speed up the drying time of your laundry. Our hand wringer is great for varied items such as wringing towels and chamois. It's great for thin clothing articles too (adjustable squeeze rollers). For jeans and other uneven clothes items with buttons, zippers and snaps you'll find success but know that not as much water can be wrung from such areas where the pockets, zippers, buttons and other doubled fabric layers combine together. The best hand wringer takes work to use but does the job if you have a firm place to mount it and tighten the rollers tight Use it at the gym, garage, car wash, motels, swimming pool, hospitals and your home for clothes, chamois, towels, bathing suits, etc. Virtually indestructible, the hand wringer has a rust free, all-steel frame, steel tube handle, and zinc plated finish. (note roller shaft is not zinc plated and can rust) Hard maple wood bearings never need oil. A single, adjustable screw at the top of the wringer applies pressure evenly to a tempered steel spring so pressure is balanced over length of wringing roller. Attach to stationary tub, portable tubs, round wash tubs, square wash tubs or oval wash tubs. Clamps open to 1 3/4". The wringer's metal frame size is 15.5" wide. With the crank handle attached it extends the length to 29". The frame height is 8.5" but extends to 10.25" counting the tension screw knob on top. The metal frame is 2" deep with a 6" drip tray the slides into the frame under the rollers. The usable inside width is 11.25" from one side of the roller to the other. Weighs about 15 lbs assembled. Note Shipping to AK, HI and PO box requires additional postage. Please contact seller for quote and shipping arrangements to avoid orders being canceled. If your address is to a PO box you can contact the seller and give an alternate address where UPS can deliver to. Made in USA

If you have tried hand wringing wet clothes, than you know its a tough burden--and you never reallly can hand wring wet clothes out enough so they will dry in a reasonable time.

After you use this product you will think your prayers have been answered!

My wife and I tested this product before we wouild really need it during a critical incident (extended power outage, EMP strike, etc).

First of all, credits to the Amazon vendor Get Prepared Store as they had the product shipped protected and in excellent condition via UPS. The package came with minor assemblly instructions, as the only tools needed is a flat blade screw driver and plyers.

The Best Hand Clothes Wringer (BHCW) worked perfectly. BHCW ajusts to fit most washtubs--we tried both, a square washtub and an oval washtub. The wringer is fully adjustable to suit the degree of wetness (amount of water squeezed from the clothes) the operator desires. The hand crank turns relatively easy, too.

As stated above, the two (2) clamps on the bottom of BHCW pivot to accomodate most washtubs in thickness and angles--and are relative sturdy and easy to clamp down on the washtub and remove from the washtub. The clamps are designed as to not puncture the mostly flimsy wash tubs they make today.

BHCW is made sturdy and looks built to last. The rollers are made of what looks and feels like a soft-touch, but firm polyurethane material--probably to help protect more delicate clothing.

Working with the Best Hand Clothes Wringer reminded me of days gone by, watching my mother wash our clothes the old fashioned way and using a wringer of similar type.

But the "old fashioned way" may be back sooner than you think.

Are you ready?

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought it after Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey November 8, 2012
Verified Purchase
When hurricane Sandy hit the NJ area, our power went out for days. As I am writing this review, I still know many people whose power is still out. We wand up having to wash our clothes by hand and having to hand wring them. It was an activity that was fun for our young kids and it gave us something constructive to do. When it came to the wringing out the clothes part, the kids fled. Wringing out the clothes was a job and a half and I still didn't do it properly as some towels took many days to dry on the clothes line. In addition, the residual detergent aggravated the skin on my hands. That is why I bought this wringer. When you think of "Made in America", you think of something that costs more but is made with real quality. This wringer exceeded my quality expectations. It is like a Sherman tank. Very solid. It looks and feels like it will still be working for many generations to come.

If you want to be prepared for a prolonged power outage and if you want to make sure you get a wringer that won't break when you need it, this is a great device to have handy. It is expensive but you won't be thinking about the money you spent if you need to use it. When I get backup devices, like this, I want great quality stuff that isn't going to break when I need it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Here is a cheaper alternative August 19, 2013
By SkyMtn
Works great but it is really expensive. I want to tell people on a budget about a possible cheaper alternative. Buy a 1 pc Replacement Winger Only for 36 Qt Mop Bucket, Yellow and put it on a 55 gallon steel drum (I got mind secondhand locally for $10). It fits perfectly! This is my emergency clothes washing system. 2 55 gallon drums side by side and one of these clothes wringers on each one. One drum for soapy water, and the other one for rinse water. Get 2 of the Mobile Washer (Hand Operated Washing Machine) and buy a long broom handle to replace the short handles. If you have two people, the clothes will get done in no time!

This does a good job of getting the water out of shirts and personals, but thick jeans with large buttons like button flys is a bit hard.. Also, the plastic is not really standing up to sunlight so well, had better put it away with not in use..

2.0 out of 5 stars $185 bucks down the drain!!! June 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
The only thing this thing wrung dry was my wallet! I give it two stars because it seems well made and durable (and hopefully someone will find a use for it - as I go about trying to sell it); but I get better and quicker results by simply hand-wringing my cloths (even at its tightest setting). Plus cranking the handle is noisy (my neighbors thought I was constructing an underground tunnel - turning this crank).

4.0 out of 5 stars Make it dry November 14, 2010
Verified Purchase
The first time I removed the Wringer from a stand for storage the clamp came apart on one side. The thumb-knob, srew washer combination came apart as the c-washer (poor design) came apart. I lost the c-washer so I need to make a trip to the hardward store to find another.

Otherwise, the wringer seems to work as advertised.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rusted after first use. July 30, 2013
Why would this be made from materials that would rust? And so fast! After the first use, the axle that connects to the crank has rust spots. Kind of an important component to the structure. For the $150, I would think stainless steel, or something rust resistant could have been used. Besides that, the design is good. It is very heavy, which I relate more with sturdy than cumbersome. But rust after the first use?! Seriously? I wasn't buying a toy. Quality materials are of great importance in any product that has to pull it's weight... especially when it's a bit of an investment.
