Keep the clothesline taut and put it up and down quickly.It is easy to detach the cord from the clothesline tensioner, which allows you to quickly take down the clothesline after use and it is just as quick to put it back up. It is a great advantage if you do not have space in the garden, on the balcony or in the apartment or house to have a drying line hanging permanently.
The clothesline tensioner is manufactured by the English company Clamcleat and has the product name CL223 Loop Cleat. Clamcleat manufactures a large number of different rope cleats, in particular for use on sailboats, and the maritime environment places very high demands on the quality of the products, as they are constantly exposed to sunlight and water. The clothesline tensioner is therefore very robust and can withstand hanging outside for a long time.
The clothesline tightener can be used for drying lines in braided material with a diameter of 3-6 mm. It is not suitable for steel wire or clothesline with a plastic coating.
Made in the UK. The material is nylon in a particularly robust outdoor quality.
A clothesline tensioner is a locking mechanism that keeps the clothesline taut. Many clotheslines have the tendency to sag to much. Of course, you can tighten the clothesline by loosening the knots at one end and tightening it up and tying new knots. However, it is often difficult (sometimes impossible) to loosen the knots and it is also difficult to keep the cord taut while tying new knots. By using a clothesline tightener, the clothesline is only tied at one end. At the opposite end, the cord is passed through the clothesline tightener in a special way and by pulling on the end of the cord, the clothesline is tightened. If the clothesline starts to hang again after a while, then you pull the end of the clothesline once more and then the clothesline is taut again.
