Amish Clothesline Pulley Elevator Pole
Clothesline Elevator Pole is designed to attach to the clothesline operator pulley to raise and lower the Amish style clothesline-wash lines.
This unique add-on item allows the clotheslines to be raised up 32" and out of the way when drying and then lowered when hanging or removing clothes.
A two-story 12' elevator kit is also available.

The Clothesline Elevator helps to keep the laundry up and out of the way from curious kids and pets or other pests that may try and pull off laundry items.
The Elevator Pole is designed to hook on two eye bolts screwed into a wall or post and incorporates a hook for the operator pulley to hook on the elevator trolley. The trolley uses a pin to lock into predrill holes at different levels up to 32". The two post collars pictured on the steel post are optional.

Easy to add Clothesline Kits
The elevator pole does not include mounting hardware or the clothesline pulley kit. Click Here to see the large Amish-style pulley kit for up to 150’ spans.
Select an optional two-story elevator kit for laundry basements. This allows the wet laundry to be placed on the line at the basement level and then the operator pulley winched up to a second-story balcony porch to remove and carry directly into the living areas of the home without having to negotiate stairways with filled laundry baskets.
This kit includes the cable, winch, shuttle, and mounting arms to fasten to a post. Order the optional post collars to fasten to a steel post or use locally obtained eyehooks to fasten to a wooden post. The post tower pictured is not included but is an example of how the Amish added both a reinforcement to the steel pipe as well as a ladder to the elevator post.
It will require a locally obtained 2" steel galvanized pipe up to 12' long for the shuttle to move up and down on. The elevator travel may be shortened as needed with a shorter pipe and cutting the cable shorter.
