I love this line dryer! It took 1/2 bag of cement and about an hour to install. After waiting for the cement to dry 24 hrs, I used it for a full load of heavy jeans, shirts, socks, etc. The ability to rotate it to hang the wash evenly and distribute the weight was easy and the large number of lines allowed me to spread of hte items for quicker drying. The Household Essentials Parellel Dryer is well built and easy to set up and take down to store. I look forward to many loads of sun-dried clothes!

Lots of line space, easy to install
Perfect For My Needs
This line was easy to set up. So far it has handled blankets and a comforter without any issues or major line droop. Very happy with this purchase.
great product/fast shipping
I ordered this 30 like parallel dryer on a Thursday night and it was waiting outside my door Friday afternoon when I got home. Estimated date was to be the next Tuesday. I had a little problem with one of the brackets slipping out but rather than having to take it back I just let it down and did a little tweaking and it went right in the slot. Yes, there is a lot of sagging in the lines but that is the only way they can sell it and put it in a box. If It was any tighter it wouldn't open.. found that out after I tightened up my lines. I love how clothes smell after being dried outdoors, so to say the least I am very pleased with this product.
This dryer was a replacement for a slightly smaller model that we'd had for a long time, until the pole rusted through (we don't take it in in the winter). The price, even before the employee discount, was about twenty dollars less than I could find anywhere else for a similar item, and for whatever reason, the shipping was free even to my home. The lines will be slack when you unpack the dryer; this is necessary and to be expected. In fact I usually take them loose and rethread them through every other hole, which reduces the capacity but allows better air circulation and speeds drying time. I find this dryer very easy to install; I had sunk a pipe for the old one, and bought this model specifically because the pole was the correct diameter to drop right into the existing pipe. Since the automatic dryer is one of the biggest electricity hogs in the household, it doesn't take long for this line dryer to pay for itself, and things sure smell better. Besides, sunlight is one of the best bleaches you can find!
I previously had one of these parallel lines, but alas, after about 25 years, it had seen its better days. Obviously, I love this line because I bought another one. This one goes up much easier than my previous one, and I like the fact that it is aluminum and will not rust. I take my line inside after I am done with it and put it up each time I use it. It is very lightweight, and I am so happy to have found another one.
This is better than described
I have always hung my clothes outside, and the one that I had previously broke and there were no stores in the area that carrried this type, only the umbrella type (not my favorite, they don't hold enough clothing. I got 5 loads of laundry on this clothes dryer (including 2 sets of sheets). More people need to use this type of clothes dryer, it saves your clothing, money and best of all your clothes smell great!! If anybody asks me about purchasing this type of product I would recommend you, also not too expensive. Thank you so much
This clothesline pole fills my requirements for airing and drying my laundry outside. It was easy for my husband to set up. Additionally, it is light enough that I can easily take it down and store it in the garage when I am not using it. The lines are far enough apart to allow sufficient air flow, and the poles support the wet-clothes weight without a problem. Additionally, this gets me outside more and lets us reduce our electricity bills.
Enjoy Nature Again and Save Energy Too
It was easy to install and use. I have enjoyed being outside on sunny mornings hanging clothes, enjoying nature,especially watching the birds explore the clothes line as a new perch. The clothes smell so good and I am saving energy and money too! It brings me back to my childhood helping mom with the clothes. I recommend it to everyone.
Line dryer too tall
I have installed the umbrella-type clothesline and it seems very nice. It was easy to open and appears sturdy. However, I have to stand on my tiptoes to reach the lines. I may need to use a step stool to hang up my clothes. I am wondering if there is a way to cut 6 inches off of the tube.
Metal is thin in spots and not strong enough.
I love the idea of this dryer but when we where putting it up one of the corners hit the ground and the metal frame snapped. We fixed it with duct tape but it no longer folds up. While I would recommend the idea of this type of dryer I would not recommend this brand.
