Frequently Asked Questions
You will need 200mm at each end of your ‘space’ for the Happy Days brackets. There are 2 overall differences in sizing: protrusion from the fixing points and line lengths. The 4 line Happy Days bracket protrudes 400mm, 5 line protrudes 500mm and the 6 line protrudes 600mm. The distance between each bracket (line length) can be anything you need up to a maximum of 4000mm.
The Mini Lines are just that- mini! In other words the bracket width is only 60mm at the fixing point and the protrusion is 100mm for 1 line and 200mm for 2 lines. Line length up to 4000mm. Compact and perfect for tight spaces, poolside and after beach outdoor shower zones.
To install Coastal Clotheslines, we give you the correct screws and bolts you need to fix your frames securely as per your order request. A pair of wire cutters and Instructions are in the box. You can’t go wrong if you check out our installation page and watch the youtube video.
1. You can purchase our stud mounts that create a super-strong fixing point (they are new & not on the site just yet
so please call us on 0402118654 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org); OR
2. Fix timber wall plates (noggins) to the studs inside the wall & fix the clothesline brackets to them; OR
3. Fix hardwood timber mounts either directly under each bracket or run a length all the way between each bracket
depending on the look you want to achieve.
To install Coastal Clotheslines to corrugated iron walls, use 2 x good quality pieces of hardwood timber 90mm wide x 600mm long x 35mm thick. Fixed to the studs, these will serve as the wall mounting plates for the frames.

Our clothesline frames are made of 316 marine-grade stainless steel. A little bit of clothesline care is needed.
Copping salty air? We recommend “Marine 3 in 1” to clean unavoidable ‘tea-staining’ & protect your brackets.
Outside of salty environments, just a quick once over the brackets and cables twice a year with a scourer and warm soapy water will do the trick.
Moving parts and will benefit from a touch of lanolin, Lanotec or similar. DO NOT place any substances on your cables/wires!

What our customers say…
“My daughter was very pleasantly surprised that Dave had filled in the holes left from the clothes line he had to remove to install the new one. She was very happy about that, also loves the clothes line which will be great when the renovations are done and the family moves in.”
“Our clients were happy with their Coastal Clothesline and we are about to order another one for another project we are completing…”
Sydney-based customer, Bev from Maroubra, ordered her Coastal Clothesline via our website: “We had the confidence to buy a Coastal Clothesline online and mount it onto our wall. Nothing else on the market could be customised to fit and withstand the onslaught of being this close to the beach. We’ve been through a few rusty clotheslines and we needed to trust that it wouldn’t happen again.”
“My line is great and Dave’s suggestion to move it from where I was thinking of putting it to a different place was an excellent suggestion.”
“Honestly I’ve been looking for a decent clothes line for about 20 years that I don’t have to hide as they are all so ugly and deteriorate so quickly! Finally I found a clothesline that can suit any space and function and that I actually want it to be seen as a feature. We have several projects coming up and will use them again and again.”
“For the price of 2 crappy clotheslines that would be mouldy in months and decaying in a few years, I have 3 beautiful, functional clotheslines that will last.”
“We now have a total of 5 Coastal Clotheslines, they’re such a beautiful, functional and flexible product. We have 2 large ones downstairs, one in the sun and one under cover. There are 2 near the pool for towels and swimmers, plus another in the laundry. The design is perfect, they’re sleek and beautiful and look seamless with the design of our home. The service you receive from this company is fantastic, and all at a great price for a product that will last such a long time.”
“I am so in love with my new clothesline .. fitted expertly to blend in with the outdoor design .. it looks great and I am happy to know I won’t be throwing lines in the bin every four years .. this one is to built to last!”
“5 stars- quality, style and functionality.Thanks Coastal Clotheslines.”
