All stainless, easy install, seems to work well
Reviewed in the United States on May 11, 2018
We're using a pair of these lines as clotheslines, attached to pre-existing steel clothesline poles set in concrete. So far they're working well but there are a couple of caveats. The instruction sheet, as minimal as it is, shows the U-clamp being attached to the inside of the loop, inside the aluminum ferrule. This is wrong - the clamp should be on the outside of the ferrule, as shown in the advertising pictures for the product. Otherwise the ferrule will just slide down the cable. It would have been nice to have two U-clamps for each end, for safety, but I guess this is just a clothesline. The expansion-bolt J-hooks are great if you need them but many folks don't so they could be eliminated and reduce the price. The price for all of these pieces of hardware comes close to the price they're offering, so it's a pretty good deal especially since you don't have to buy more pieces than you need. Cutting the cable is easy with a hacksaw and a 32TPI (fine tooth) blade. Around here, anything that stays outside all winter pretty much needs to be stainless so I'm hoping this will hold up. I will also note that despite that word "retractable" in the title, it's not retractable in the sense most people think of a clothesline. There's a turnbuckle meant for tightening but it's meant to be permanent, not put up and down repeatedly.
