The Leifheit Linomatic 500 Outdoor Dryer allows you to dry your clothing in an energy-saving manner!Make way for the grandest innovation in line drying since the clothesline! The Leifheit Linomatic 500 Outdoor Dryer is a rotary clothes dryer that combines the technology of retractable clotheslines with the convenience of the umbrella air dryers. It is made of aluminum and high quality plastic, so it is tough, durable, rustproof, and weather resistant - a must have for an outdoor air drying. Closed, the sturdy clothesline is kept clean and untangled, protected from the elements by the high quality plastic arms that form the base of the umbrella dryer. Open, the clothesline is fully extended, revealing a whopping 164'/50m of drying space. To open the dryer, simply pull the cord at the base of the structure. When it is time to close the retractable line, simple pinch the button and allow arms to move downward. The line automatically retracts into the Linomatic, where it stays, once again, clean, untangled, and protected. The Linomatic combines the best of what we love about air dryers: warm, sunny days, fresh smelling clothes, energy saving and environmentally conscious sensibilities. And it solves air dryers most frustrating problems: tangled, dirty lines. It is innovation at its best! 60% Aluminum 40% Plastic. Easy pull string open and push button close.
