DEALS DIRECT - "Cord-O-Clip Automated Clothes Line System" (weird!) NOW $99.00
It's a clothes line. With pegs. And it is "automated" in so far as you hold your clothes under the pegs, slide the line out, and continue to clip your clothes with the pegs that just keep on coming...
OK, a couple of things not clarified in the ad [that are clarified in the VIDEO in the next post!]:
- do you bolt one/two ends to walls? [nope, you hang each end on a cup hook which is supplied; it needs to be screwed into something obviously].
- what holds up the other end? [a wheel/pulley and cup hook]
- how many pegs are there (there's a finite amount of line space obviously) [100 pegs - on the 75' line]
[there are two lengths available from Deals Direct - 7.6m and 15.2m]
This is weird, quirky, and amused me this morning. I don't know that it's a good value deal, but if you could get answers to the puzzling questions, it might be a terrific solution to line space issues in units and apartments, or provide internal line space for periods of inclement weather (guess who ate a thesaurus for breakfast?).
So, from the site:
