FAQs About Austral RetractAway 40

Is there a minimum distance that I have to pull out the lines?

Yes, the RetractAway 40 has a minimum extension of 2m, meaning you must extend the lines out of the cabinet by at least 2m in order for the lines to be locked.

I'm not sure which mounting option to choose for the RetractAway 40 Clothesline?

This depends upon various factors such as, the amount of area and space you have, how much hanging space you require and much more. Feel free to give us a call before purchasing to speak to one of our experienced installers to discuss the best option for you.

How does the ground socket make the RetractAway 40 clothesline removable?

The ground socket is available for Wall to Post, Post to Post and Post to Wall mounting options ONLY with STANDARD Posts, not Plated Posts. A ground socket can be placed underneath a STANDARD post, allowing the post to be inserted and removed as needed. We do not recommend using more than one ground socket, such as for Post to Post mounting options, as this can decrease overall stability of the clothesline.

What is the best mounting option for the RetractAway Clotheslines?

This will depend on a several factors, including the size of your area and location of where you want the clothesline installed. Simply give us a call on 1300 366 229 to speak to one of our friendly team members to discuss your options before purchasing.
