L.T. Williams 4630 28 Rail A Frame Stainless Steel 60cm Clothes Airer $25 + Delivery ($0 with Prime/ $39 Spend) @ Amazon AU

450

Courtesy of CamelCamelCamel.

I was contemplating a new clothes airer as my existing ones either leave a a white powder on my clothes; or the coating has failed and started to rust.
Saw this for $25, which looks like a good deal - was originally $55.

Dispatch in 1 to 4 weeks.

    Reading one review doesnt give confidence.

    I have one style similar to that one and it's also like lasted 5+ years, but it isnt this exact one, got it from bunnings or something way back when pandemic wasnt a thing.

    •  

      We have the Bunnings one too that looks just like this. Picked it up on sale for a steal. Lasted years and still going strong.

    •  

      It's the same brand, I have one too. I tried to get another one a few months ago but Bunnings doesn't sell them anymore.

      •  

        At Bunnings yesterday (Mount Gravatt) they had an end of aisle promotion that looks like it was based on a very similar looking clothes airer for $39, but it also had about six shoe holders on the bottom railings and a very tall jacket / pants overhead stand rising up from the middle.

        Personally, I think the rails of these types of airers are too thick and prefer getting a couple of the $13 jobs from the likes of BIGW.

    The problem with these is knowing if they are any good.

    Hollow tubes with thin walls = buckles to buggery.

    There is some amazingly cheap and not fit for purpose ones out there.

    Needed one and got one too, thanks

    Thought R.M. Williams were dipping into the clothes rack market for a minute there.

    We have one of similar design (believe we originally got from Bunnings), the pivot point where the the plastic pivoting hinge attaches to the aluminium tubing is the weakest point. Ours has already snapped and had to re-inforce it

    Unfortunately the words "stainless steel" on the label can't guarantee that the item will be free of rust. I've seen rusty drinking bottles made of "stainless steel", rusty stainless spoons, folding knives etc. There are many grades of stainless steel, and you probably should not expect decent quality at this price.

    •  

      Stainless steel doesn't mean it will not rust.
      It's stain-less :P

        Is rust not a stain technically

    Has it expired? It shows $52.79 for me.

      Same

    I have one of these. They are OK @ $50 but I doubt will last too many years. A good deal at $25 though.

    •  

      My one from 2016 still looks new.

        Mine still looks good too but the plastic joints flex under load and will inevitably crack. It will certainly last longer if you only put lightweight items on it.

    My FROST Drying rack from ikea has lasted 7++ years. Coating has started to come off now exposing rusty wire so looking to replace. I wonder if I should try this or stick to the same one…

    It shows as $25 but when you hit Buy It Now, the price changes to $52.79 each?

    If you can wait a bit, Aldi sells a coloured version for $20 for its special buys.

    •  

      is that the current special buys?

      •  

        I'm not sure about current but it does pop up every now and then.

  •  

    Bunnings sells one similar with an overhead bar for $15 more. I use that bar a lot to so for 15 bucks more I think it’s better value than this

  •  

    i bet if you were to attach bedsheets to this in just the right way it could take off and fly

      That second one's junk. I had one for about 6 months before the hinges broke. I see them out in hard rubbish all the time so I'm not the only one who's had issues.

      •  

        Agreed, the first one is much better quality. I've had it outside now under shade for a few years now. But the free delivery would've been nice. May have needed another one.

      I have the second one.

      Lasted for 4 years thus far. Awesome airer. Best one I've had.

      The middle bit that holds hanging items is worth it for an extra $5 over this product.

        Agreed! We have been using the second one for about 18 months now with no proems. The high bar has been pretty handy.

    Lieutenant L.T. Smash Williams?

    I want a good quality unit that won’t rust, and doesn’t have crappy quality plastic joints on the corners
