How To Keep A Clothesline Tight
"As the lines stretch, I can easily tighten them by simply turning a crank on each tightener," says Jamieson.
His 20-ft. long clothesline has four wires spaced 10 in. apart. He drilled four hoIes into one end of the clothes line and inserted a metal hook in each one, which he welded into place. Then he attached the fence tighteners to the hooks. On the other end of the clothesline he installed just the hooks. Then he attached the high tensile wire to the hooks and to the ratchet fasteners.
"All it takes is a couple of clicks of the tool to tighten up each line," says Jamieson, who notes that the fence tighteners cost about $2 to $3 apiece.
