Smedbo Outline Retractable Clothing Line in Polished Chrome
Attractive, Brass Construction, 10 Year Warranty
Brian from Jacksonville, FL– Verified Buyer
The Outline Retractable Clothes Line FK 480 by Smedbo is well made and backs it up with a 10 year warranty. It is mostly brass with a chrome finish. The mounting hardware inside where the clothesline retracts is plastic, but it is hidden from view and appears to be designed to lessen the weight. At first I thought that there were no instructions or mounting screws, but they were neatly tucked in the bottom of the packaging. Be careful not to accidentally throw them away. If the tension knob is twisted to the right it locks the line in place. Turning the knob to the left unlocks the line and allows it to retract. The line is at least 8 feet in length. The chrome finish is attractive, but picks up finger print smudges. The price seems high compared to some of the cheaper plastic retractable clothes lines on the market, but the attractiveness, brass construction, and 10 year warranty make it worthwhile.

If there's a rating with ZERO STAR ill be rating it with that...coz that's what it deserves... I received it in a open package broken and open box inside...and the product seems to have been used with scratches in it,markings that it has been mount already...and as I installed it, I was dismayed on how sloppy it was made for the locking purposes of the strings and the strings won't even hold 2 light clothing. ALL IN ALL POOR PACKAGING, ITEMS ARE USED AND OPENED, PRODUCT QUALITY IS POOR IN STANDARDS!
