Frequently Asked Questions

The Peggs Handy Line is Australia's favourite clothesline, designed and built to last. Innovative and reliable, the Handy Line has been designed using best-in-class materials and construction techniques to deliver a product that's easy-to-use, and efficiently dries your clothes, sheets and towels.

Do you, or anyone else who will be using the handy line, have any physical disabilities or limitations that could affect strength or mobility?

If your answer to the above question is Yes: The Classic range is lighter in weight than the Deluxe range, and has the added option of the Easy 8 Handy Line in this range. With a lower line level, the Easy 8 is ideal for those with upper mobility issues and in wheelchairs, as well as being balcony compliant.

If your answer to the above question is No: the difference is the colour and appearance of the Handy Line. The Classic range, white and cool grey in colour, is the upgraded modern version of the original Handy Line released in 1995. The Deluxe range has sleek molded legs, enhanced leg bracing, a smooth folding mechanism and is gunmetal grey in colour, which has a more contemporary feel compared to the Classic range.

The model number represents how many lines the portable clothesline has; for example the Deluxe 10 has 10 lines for drying your laundry.

The Handy Line can handle a full load of washing, including your larger items like bedsheets. The large line offers 16 metres of usable line space, and the small line 11.5 metres.

The Handy Line has been specially designed to withstand the elements – rain, hail or shine! The design is durable: every nut, bolt and washer is stainless steel, the main bar, cross bars and legs are powder coated (oven treatment) aluminium and the clothesline is pvc covered plaited fiber (not plastic coated wire) making the product weather and rust proof. The Handy Line is also used often by people who travel and camp.

During cool and wet weather, the Handy Line can be used indoors to capitalise on indoor heating, and your washing is dry by morning. By using the Handy Line, you can reduce or even eliminate the need for an electric dryer, resulting in savings on energy bills and helping your clothes to last much longer.

The Handy Line folds away flat nicely for easy storage. It can be stored behind a door, on a wall and in many other small spaces. It can also be stored in many vehicles for use on your trips.
