These systems are popular in the Amish communities who depend on clotheslines year-round.  

For larger families or longer spans from over 100’ up to 150’, we offer our larger Amish Style Wash Line-Clothesline Pulley Kit made of the same quality materials using a 12” operator pulley and 16” outbound pulley. Click Here for more information.

Wash line-Clothesline Pulley Kit Includes:

  • One- 8” Operator Pulley Assembly with spring lock
  • One- 8” Outbound Pulley Assembly
  • One- fixed Line Spacer


  • Spring lock 8” pulley and outbound 8” pulley with cable guide to preventing derailments.
  • Smooth operating pulleys are equipped with ball bearing hubs
  • Powder coating on metal parts
  • No Pinch Finger Guard and Cable Guides prevent pinched fingers and derailed cable.
  • High impact plastic wheels designed for outdoor use. (Same as used on scooters and carts)

Note: the spring lock on the operator pulley is a manually operated spring-loaded pin that locks in between the wheel spokes. 

The kit does not include cable, ratchet, additional line spacers, or docking station, order as needed using the drop-down boxes. 

The kit also does not include eyebolts and other mounting hardware needed to fasten each end of the pulleys.

Up to 100,’ maximum spacing recommended. Double the cable needs for the spacing and add 3' to go around the pulleys. 100’ spacing will need 203’ of cable. The cable will come with one end already attached to the ratchet if the cable and ratchet are ordered. Use 3/16" O.D. clear nylon cable purchase locally or order using the drop-down box.

Recommended use of line spacers every 30’-40’. An initial fixed spacer sent with the kit. Spacers are 9 1/2" long to hold the lines closer together. Wash line spacers keep the lines from twisting as well as supporting from the top cable. Spacers are made of aluminum with a plastic roller and zinc plated snaps.

Optional spacer docking station mounts on the operator pulley and neatly aligns the spacers up so that they do not interfere with the operator pulley when the clothes are being retrieved. Recommended if you will have over 2 spacers.

The ratchet is attached to the fixed spacer so that it does not interfere with the pulleys.

Purchase the optional elevator pole to raise and lower the operator pulley allowing the lines to be raised up 4’ and out of the way when drying and then lowered when hanging or removing clothes. This option is not necessarily needed especially if the operator pulley is located next to an already elevated deck or porch. If the operator pulley will be at ground level then the elevator system might be a good idea to keep the laundry up and out of the way from curious kids and pets or other pests that may try and pull off laundry items.
