Of the many components that help your mounted clothesline work properly, few are more important than the docking bracket. But how does this piece function alongside the rest of your clothesline pulley system? We’ve got your answers.

The docking bracket actually works in conjunction with your system’s line spacers. While each of our mounted clothesline systems come equipped with a single fixed spacer, many homeowners require the use of additional spacers to keep their line from sagging when heavy items (such as blankets or sheets) are placed on the line.

Of course, these additional line spacers aren’t always necessary, and their ability to slide along the line could sometimes make hanging lighter articles of clothing a bit tricky. This is where a docking bracket comes in.

The docking bracket attaches on the pulley mechanism, providing a location to store additional line spacers when not in use.
