If you are not satisfied with the standard of clothesline tensioner that you have received – contact customer service immediately. We will review the matter and determine whether a full or partial refund is in order. Refurbishing a clothesline yourself is not difficult, but it does require a bit of work on your part. This will save you money, which is very important these days with gas and other high-priced items. Refurbishing your own clothesline may also be more environmentally friendly than using a new model.
How to Refinish a Clothesline Tensioner
One method of refinishing your clothesline tensioner involves sewing a new piece of hardware onto the line. To do this you must attach the tension ring to a piece of double fisherman’s knotting tape. Once you have done this carefully, it should take no more than an hour or so, and you will have a working tension rod at the end. You can then simply thread the other end of the rope through the same knotting tape and tie one end to the other so that when you tighten the rod the line tightens with the ring on the tensioner.
Some people prefer to replace their clothesline tension rather than try and refinish them. For these people the method described here works just as well. To do this you need to take apart the clothesline hanging from your ceiling. You will need to remove the clamps that hold the clothesline in place, and remove the tension rings and any other hardware. Then attach the new tension ring to the hanging line using the supplied screws.
