Springtime tune-up…

Spring is definitely upon us now, no sign of Old Man Winter…he clouded our days long enough here in PA.  Always grateful for the seasons, however, as they make me appreciate what lies ahead.  I am always eager for Winter to come, and then just as eager to see it go and see the buds of Spring.  And so on, and so on.

With the warmer weather also comes the quiet peacefulness, in my humble opinion, of being able to dry the wash outside.  To me, one of my favorite sights in my yard in Spring and Summer, after watching the kids at play and the plants sprouting forth, is to see the clothes waving in the breeze on our Hills Rotary.  Relaxing.  And I love it.  I have written about the qualities of the Hills Rotary time and again, but thought it was time to mention a few things that may pop up and enter your mind after the winter months.

If you put your Hills Rotary Hoist away for the winter (yes, we have accessories for that!:  the Hills Wall Bracket can be found on www.breezedryer.com.), taking it out again for warmer weather use may present with a situation that may surprise you.  Checking to be sure that the lines of your Hills Rotary Hoist are not tangled over an arm or draped over an arm will save some time and concern once you get the clothesline into the socket and ready to work for you.  The lines draping over an arm will not allow the head of the rotary to be secured by the latch.  A simple check beforehand will free you of that issue.

If the special spot you’ve chosen for your Rotary Hoist is central to your yard (or wherever it may be), why not consider an Umbrella Conversion Kit?  This kit is specially designed for Hills Rotary Hoist sockets (will not work with other rotaries), and contains socket adapters to fit almost any type of umbrella.  Voila! Instant umbrella location in your yard and you’ve taken back your yard space in one easy step.

Look to www.breezedryer.com for all of your part needs as well.  We carry a full line of parts for your Hills Clothesline, and are proud to say that Hills products are made with the expectation that they will last for decades, not a year or a few.  Sustainable products for you and your family.  Enjoy the warm breezes of Spring.
