About

The Free Standing Clothesline (or Mobile Clothesline) is a project I have been trying to get off the ground for quite some time. There are many different types of clothesline on the market but none of them have the features of my clothesline. The Free Standing Clothesline has the capability to support a full large load, or king size comforters and sheets, then roll away when not in use. Most clotheslines capable of doing this are permanent fixtures attached to two post in the yard or a line that runs from the house to a post or tree in the yard. The convenience to air dry large loads then utilize the space for other activities is one of the ideal features of the Free Standing Clothesline.  I'm on kickstarter asking for your support  in getting the Free Standing Mobile Clothesline manufactured and available to consumers like you. Because of your support in backing the clothesline, I would like to award a clothesline to you. I have had extensive conversations with my manufacturer and we are ready to continue with the engineering process. The Clothesline in my video is a rough prototype of what the finished product will look like. This is why I need your help. Below I want to provide more detail about the Free Standing Mobile Clothesline and hope if you have comments you will provide them at the end of viewing my presentation. Thanks in advance for your support.

Below I provide a detail description of the Mobile Clothesline as well as blue print images:

Mobile Clothesline Design Features:

  •  Consists of two cylindrical posts and two base units.
  • The post is 3 or less inches in diameter.
  •  The top half of the posts telescopes into the bottom half of the posts. The top half of the posts slides out of the bottom half, twist and locks into place with metal buttons on opposite sides that may be pushed in to release lock position. When the post is in locked position the posts slides up until the metal buttons catch a hole in the post that snaps it into place.
  • The top half of the posts has 4 arms that are flush with the posts when in the down position. When the arms are in the upright position, each arm has metals buttons that lock each arm in the upright position. To release the arms press the buttons and the arms return to the down position, flush with the post.
  •  On both posts, the top two arms when extended out in the lock position have a length longer than the bottom two arms.
  • Each arm on post number one has a retractable clothes line that extends ten feet. Each line has a ball on the end that allows the line to attach to the arm on post number two.
  •  Post number two operates in the same way as post number one except there is no retractable line in the arms instead there are keyhole type openings that receive the clothesline from post number one.
  •  The base unit may be water or sand filled up to 50 pounds or less; wheels are attached to the back side of the base unit. The wheels on the base allow the clothesline to be mobile.

Risks and challenges

I have been asked to identify potential risk and challenges and how best to handle those challenges.
My first thoughts on this is to stick with my business plan and stay confident it will work.
There is always the risk that the market will not identify with the benefits of my idea. I have confidence that there is a market and people will identify with the features as I do and will want one.
All other challenges should not be looked at as problems but just situations that need to be resolved. It is best to keep an open mind and don't stop thinking, don't stop grinding until all goals are met.
