quickest way to restring a clothesline is to start in the
middle and work up to the upper most point. We recommend you start at
row three. Before you start to restring the clothesline, measure out the line you need to thread
the top three rows, use one side of the dryer and stretch the line
across each row and add about one foot extra. If you have a four arm
dryer you will need four times that length to complete the top three
rows, tie a loose loop in the line to mark the spot. A good tip is to
roll the new clothesline cord off the coil and lay it out in the garden
so it will pull through the dryer easily.
Now at row three thread the line through the lower eyelet and
through three arms so you have the line half way around row three. A
good tip is to hold onto the end of the line after threading it through
the arm as this will stop any tangles, now pull all the line through
to the point where you tied the loop. Thread up the other half of row
three and pull all the line through. Thread the line through the upper
eyelet on row three and then up to the lower eyelet on row two.
Restring half of row two pulling all the line through, now thread the
other half of row two, use the same procedure to thread up the top row.
When the top rows are complete measure out how much line you need for
the lower rows, again use one side of the dryer and stretch the line
across each row and allow a bit extra, so for a four arm dryer you
will need four time that length. Thread up the lower rows using the
How to tension the line after restringing the clothesline.
Start at the highest point at the arm with the double hole, tie a
knot in the line to keep it secure, then with the dryer fully open work
along the line pulling the line tight as you go and feeding the slack
line through all the way to the lowest point.
At the lowest point when the line is tight mark the point in the line
where you need to tie the knot, now close the dryer so the line is
slack and tie the knot, when you open the dryer again the line should be
