Drying drier for fastening from plastic pipes

We make horizontal linen slats

Cut 2 three-meter PVC pipes into 4 pieces, each 75 cm. Cut another piece of 75 cm long from the third pipe. There will be 9 strips for hanging clothes. Parts of the vertical support will be cut from the rest of the pipe. This should be enough, but it is best to measure the stairs on which you plan to mount the dryer, and only then cut the parts.

Make the bottom support

Measure the width of the stairs and cut two short sections that will be located behind the stairs and connected with a tee. Consider that PVC pipes enter the mount by about 2 cm. Cut two identical pieces,to make the “hooks” that will come forward. Finally, cut two short sections of 3 cm each to put the plugs on the ends of the “hooks”. Keep in mind that these parts are very small and will not be visible under the plugs. Total bottom support consists of five taps, two plugs, one tee and six short pieces of PVC pipe. Glue all the details as shown in the photo.

Make the top mount and vertical base

Cut one short piece of pipe along the width of the step, on both sides of which there will be bends (take into account that PVC pipes enter the joints by about 2 cm). Cut a small piece of pipe again to put the cap on the tap. Glue the two pieces, pipe pieces and plug: you get a “hook” to cling the ladder to the top of the step. Install the upper hook and the lower base on the ladder and trim the remainder of the PVC pipe to form a vertical pole connecting x. Glue the vertical portion to the top, to make it easier to hang the dryer on the ladder and keep the entire structure.You do not need to glue the bottom base to a vertical post.

Drill the remaining tees

Drill the remaining 9 PVC tees to remove the internal fixtures, so they will slide freely along the vertical section. Using a drill, make a semicircular cutout at the bottom pieces of each tee. This hole will coincide with the screw screwed into the vertical base to secure the tee in the correct position.

Assembling the vertical bars

In each of the nine bars, drill a through hole at one end and a slot in the other (in one plane). Starting from inside the bar, skip a piece of laundry rope through the slot, then along the pipe, through the hole on the other side, again along the pipe, through the slot on the other side and pull out the ends so that they stick out of the tube (to make it easier, you can attach the rope to the plastic tube). >Tie two strong flat knots, tightening as much as possible. Then, cut off the extra rope and thread the ends inside the pipe. Make it easier with someone else's help. Glue the plugs to the ends where the holes are located, and the drilled tees on the other side. Align the tee so that the rope passes from the front and back sides of the vertical bar when the entire construction is assembled, as shown in the photo.

Collect and align the vertical bars

Hang a vertical part on a ladder and put on it all nine finished vertical bars. From the bottom, set the horizontal base. Move the tees so that they are evenly distributed along the vertical column at the same distance from each other, then turn them so that the horizontal bars are turned as you like. Keep in mind that things will hang down and should not interfere with those located on the lower slats, or block the window. When you place the tees as you like, drill a small hole where the semicircular cut is on each tee and insert the aluminum screws. The screw will fix the bar in the desired position and not let the wind swing it. But you can change the position of the slat by slightly sliding the tee up and unfolding it. Keep the dryer more comfortable in a flat form, for this simply slide the slats up and set in the same plane with the upper hook.

Assemble the construction completely and hang everything that you need to dry! If you fix large things, such as towels, under the clothesline, it will hold they are in place in a straightened form. It is better to fasten smaller things with clothespins. Some things are better to dry on the hangers, and the plugs on the ends of the pipes will not allow them to slide off. If you want to dry something unnoticed, hang this item on the rope between the two towels. Use the bottom hooks for wet shoes or small things.
