Our exclusive Heavy Duty T-Post Clothesline Poles have proven to be the absolute best. The complete setup includes two outdoor clothesline poles and 150 feet of our vinyl coated 750 lb. breaking strength All-Weather Clothesline Wire. Designed to be permanently cemented in the ground and built to hold heavy loads such as sheets, comforters, and blankets.
Made with the highest quality heavy duty galvanized steel tubing. Six end caps are included that cover all 3 open ends of each pole to protect the clothesline poles from bugs, birds, and water damage. They are the only clothesline poles available anywhere that include the highest quality clothesline wire as most include cheap clothesline rope which is not permanent like the clothesline poles and often gets weathered rather quickly. We've found that no one wants to hang clothes on a wet or dirty rope when their looking for clean clothes and moisture will do exactly that.
The clothesline poles hold 5 lines that can provide up to 125 feet of linear drying space with the recommended maximum distance between poles of 25 feet. This can easily be customized to your suit your needs if your wanting less drying space which will offer greater line tension. Simply cut the clothesline wire to your needs. Each clothesline pole is equipped with an anti-spin bolt at the bottom to keep the clothesline poles from rotating once they've been cemented in.
These clothesline poles are designed for easy assembly with easy to follow instructions which can be seen on the Instructions tab above. They can be beautified with almost any color paint to match your setting or simply adding a small flower basket at each end can brighten any laundry day. Handy Dandy Clothesline Poles!

- Align the bolt holes in the upright and cross poles and insert one of the 1/4" x 2-1/2" eye bolts. Be certain to align the eye bolts properly before tightening. Invert the assembly and install the remaining eye bolts.
- Install the anti-spin bolt in the lower end of each upright pole.
- The recommended distance between poles is 15-25 ft. and the recommended hole depth should be 36" to 40".
- Install the poles 24" to 32" deep into the concrete. For distances greater than 15 ft., we recommend installing over 24" deep. Optionally, a vertical level could be used to help ensure the straight alignment and is highly recommended for distances over 15 ft. Keep in mind when installing the poles deeper that will cause them to be shorter. Most importantly, you want a comfortable height that works for you so based on the total length of the vertical poles, you can determine what height will suit you best when drying your laundry. The minimum depth of 24" provides 5.8 feet poles above ground. It's also a good idea to ensure both poles are square with each other before setting.
- For additional support, we recommend filling the upright poles with concrete once they are set in place. This is optional for the 15 ft. distance, but greater distances should definitely add this additional support as more drying space means more laundry and less line tension between poles which overtime could cause the poles to bend in towards each other if there not filled with concrete for a much stronger foundation.
- Cut the wire to size which will depend on the distance between your poles. Add an extra 1 foot of wire to each line for securing the line to the eye hooks with the joiner/tighteners which will use about 6" or less on each end of the line. For example, if the distance between poles is 15 feet., you'll want to cut each wire 16 feet. Rinse and repeat for the remaining 4 lines using the first one as an example. Always remember, you can cut the line shorter, but you can't make it longer, so ensure you cut the wire to your needs.
What is the best way to set the clothesline poles?
If you know right off hand or can easily determine by researching, what the prevailing wind direction is in your area, then there are some things to consider. If your looking to avoid twisting, you'll want to set your poles at right angles to the wind.
If you want to avoid fading, place them so they are with the movement of the sun across the sky at your latitude. One pole toward sunrise and the other towards sunset. If you plan to use your clothesline year-round, remember that where the sun rises and sets will change with the seasons so you'll need to find a good spot somewhere in the middle.
The best option is to take advantage of both the sun and the prevailing winds which will provide maximum drying power with the least resistance from twisting. Either way, when installing your poles, it's a good idea to keep in mind where the sun and the wind are best. We'd love to hear what worked best for you?
