I like them, but
Sep 11, 2017
I bought 3 of these some time ago, and they were about $7 each back then. I like them but, 2 have rusted shut in a short position, and I cannot use them any more. I have used loads of various products to get them unstuck-- WD40, PB Power Blaster, and Liquid Wrench are ones I can remember. So far, I have not been able to budge them. I am looking to buy some replacements.... They are the exact same ones here, and I bought them from Lehman's. When I was growing up they were called "wash props". Ok, that was some time ago.
Ground Ends Missing
Mar 22, 2017
When I went to take the items out of the long box the ends to the poles weren't on the cardboard they were to be zip tied on, the zip ties to the ends that go into the ground weren't even connected to the cardboard but we're loose in the big box. The ends that go in the ground weren't even in the box. I opened the big box flat to make sure they weren't hung up somewhere in the box, they weren't in it. I emailed Lehman's right away March 15th but never heard back. Otherwise the poles are a lot stronger than I thought they would be, not flimsy at all. I would give 5 stars but due to not having the ends or Lehman's responding I have to give it a 3.
Lehman's says: We're so sorry for your experience and thank you for letting us know! We had some experienced some technical difficulties and apologize for the confusion. We will be contacting you right away to sort this out. Thank you for your patience.

I bought two maybe 10 years ago or more....from Lehman's. They have held up very well over the years..don't know what I would do without them. My neighbor borrows them at times. Just recently, after these many weather-season changes, the plastic lip of the ground stake has become brittle and broken off partially on both poles. But, remember they have had years and years of hard work and stuck in my hard IN clay ground. I am now ordering another pair...I hope Lehman's never stops carrying them! Thank you!

I am very happy with the quality of the product, and am VERY VERY HAPPY with the fast delivery of my product. I will certainly be ordering more products from your company. Carol

These are fantastic. I bought two and soon after placed an order for another two. I don't know how anyone can use a long clothesline or dry heavy/long items without these poles. I can use them when I string lines across my deck by putting the little rounded spike at the bottom of the poles into the groove between deck boards. No amount of wind on washday has knocked them down, and the line cannot slip out of the top. My neighbor saw my poles and asked me where I got them.

I LOVE this!!! It is so much better than trying to find a good stick!

I ordered these and I remember what the old ones were like when I used to have a clothes line. They would bend easy. These are wonderful. They are heavy and you can adjust them. I was totally shocked when I got them. They are well worth the price. Can't go wrong with these clothesline props.

Excellent prop. I could not find one on the left coast. Wife enjoys using it.

I recently moved and my 17 year old aluminum clothline props somehow got lost in the shuffle. I can't believe how difficult it was to find replacements in such a green time. Luckily, I chanced upon Lehman's website. I found the same props at several other site, but considerably more expensive. They are easy to use, and since they collapse, much easier to store than my old ones. I hope the twist mechanism lasts a long time. I really enjoy hanging wash outside-everything smells so fresh. Thanks for offering such a good product at such a reasonable price! :-)

I bought this because I knew with a 50 foot clotheslines (from Lehmans) there would be some sag. There is a hole in the bottom for you to attach an anchor, which will be do here soon but the bottom is a little stake to help balance it. The line hooks into the top. A great addition to the clothesline.

I could not wait to get this product. I was looking for this item for so long. I used it that week and it worked very well. I liked how it extends so high and hooks on the clothesline. I will buy more products from this company. Great Company Thanks

I received the clothesline prop poles promptly and I am very satisfied with their quality. I searched for a long time before I could find this product and am very satisfied.

I love these clothesline props. They are everything Lehman's promised they would be. I will recommend these to everyone who loves to hang out laundry.

Great product! Wish we would have found them years ago.

I received this product and I am more then pleased with it. I find it a very helpful and useful item to have when you have done your laundry and wish to hang your clothes outside. If you have sheets or heavy towels this item will keep your clothes from dragging on the ground. I love the fact that it also collapses for easy storage. Thank you so much.

The clothes line props that I purchased are just what I needed. I've been using my old aluminum, bent and rusty props for the past 8 years because I couldn't find them anywhere. These are great- they have a nice weight to them and a threaded end so that the clothesline won't fall out-plus they are adjustable height so they are easy to collapse and store away. And all at an economical price. I highly recommend them!!

Works great! Held up many pounds of laundry even in a very stiff wind. The wind was blowing the prop over at a 30-40% angle and it stayed put in the ground. Stake on bottom could be a bit longer, and it can be hard to get it properly tight so it doesn't shorten. Highly recommend though.

Just the thing to raise the lines so I can wash blankets and sheets. Quite an improvement over the old ones from when I was a kid- adjustable length!
