Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! First of all, I would like to state that we have 3 children under the age of 5 so we have to do alot of car camping. This review may not be helpful for those who backpack. We used this product while camping at Delaware Seashore State Park and it works amazingly well. You slip the clothes in between 2 ropes and use the beads to hold it in place. I was skeptical about it when I first put it up but I couldn't believe how much and how well it worked at such a windy place such as the beach. None of our clothes came off! Also, the case that is included is attached and very helpful for storage. The price is good compared to the REI clothesline and works much better. Not only that, you don't need to bring anything extra to keep your clothes on the line!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly capable Just completed a 14-day drive down the Pacific Highway from Seattle to just above San Francisco with side trips to Crater Lake, Redwoods and 3 days in Yosemite. Stayed in funky small hotels. This clothesline was invaluable. Its length is excellent for running multiple continuous lines in a small bathroom or one long line is a spacious place. We discovered we could hang clothes over it (as expected) or hang them on coat hangers from the hotel rack (when provided). The hotel hangers that just end in a knob and not a hook can be held securely between two of the buttons on this line. The only improvement might be to include a few clothespins in the kit as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just acceptable Beads were not easy to use. I used the "REI Hang Up Clothesline" last year on my trip to Honduras, and found the clothespins easier to use. (Even though they slid along the line, you could tie knots to keep them in place). There were not enough beads on this line to hang multiple small items, and the design of pinching the clothes between lines with the beads created a lot or wrinkles on t-shirts, etc. Basically, I ended up using this "Sea to Summit Lite Line" to just drape my clothes over. I could have used a length of rope instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Clothesline I use this clothesline when I travel or go camping. This clothesline is so compact and light that I always just throw it in my luggage or backpack. When traveling to different countries, trying to find a laundry or laundry service is a difficult task....So I simply wash my own clothes in the sink of the hotel room or in a waterproof stuff sack. This clothesline is easy to string up anywhere and the beads hold the clothes nicely without worrying about clothes pins. I found it to be the perfect length and an awesome price too!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great compact clothesline I've used this in the Boundary Waters, on other camping trips, and on our lanai when vacationing in HI - it's a great little clothesline. The beads work well to hold socks & other smaller items on the line in a breeze. Larger items like T shirts are better just draped over the line. The only con is the black color, which makes it easy to forget at a campsite (which is why I'm buying a second one).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tiny, Ultralight Travel Line Looked at a lot of different options for travel use, and this is The One! Packs tiny, unfolds to a full 11'6" (twice the length of most competing travel lines), weighs 1.2 oz. Sliding bead system is amazingly effective (who'd have thought it?) so no need for clothespin substitutes (although you can always use twist ties, rubber bands, etc). Both ends have a hook which loops around whatever you want to secure it to, and you can adjust to whatever length you like up to the full 11.6". Folds away easily back into the attached pouch. A very clever and well executed solution. I bought this for use primarily in foreign hotel rooms for washing up in the bathroom sink, but it would work equally well outdoors in open air, in a cruise stateroom, etc. Great product, well worth adding to my travel bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this clothes line is great! I used this on a daily basis during a week long camping trip and it was perfect. Sliding my clothes between the ropes and using the beads instead of pins or hooks to keep them in place worked perfect. I didn't notice any wrinkles in my clothes. The hooks on each end make hanging the clothes line super easy. It's great storing everything in the little pouch so you don't need anything extra for hanging up your clothes/towel to dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Initially was skeptical, used it while camping in Wisconsin, worked great. Held several wet, large, heavy towels in the wind. Wish they had a product that was a bit longer, and maybe with 2-4 clothespins for shirts that you don't want to wrinkle. Nevertheless, a GREAT product.

Exactly how do the beads hold clothes on the line? The photo is very uninformative.

Asked by: DJLA
The easiest way to hang something on the Lite Line Clothesline is to pull two beads apart to the desired length. You then thread the clothing article through gap between the line that is created by separating the beads. You can close the beads around the garment to hold it in place. There are great videos on YouTube that show the line in action as well.
