Help with my broken Washing Line!!!

School Holidays, and my little darlings have broken my Rotary Washing line by swinging on it.
The base of it sits in a 'sleeve' which is concreted into my garden. The pole of the rotary line has virtually snapped in two where it goes into this 'sleeve' (it is a bit rusty, and has weakened over the years) and I wondered if anyone knew where I could get hold of another metal 'sleeve' which is slightly bigger than the pole, which could support it for a few more years!. I need something that resembles an empty kitchen roll.
I would be gratefull for any suggestions!

A short piece of scaffold pole?

You might find the scaffold pole a little too wide for the hole. You could try and get a small piece of aerial mast, which has got a smaller diameter. If not, last time I went into Tesco, they had these rotary dryers on for about £9, might be just worth replacing.

probably be easier to either cut it or snap it off where its damaged and re insert it into the sleeve,

obviously the rotary wont be as high if you can live with that:thumbsup:

lol like 2 foot off the ground ......where you can onl;y hang ur underwear n socks on it:)

you could probably buy something from the hardware store like they use for parasols stick it on the bottom half then clip the broken bit into it....if that makes sense at all?

edit:like a scaffold clip

The internal diameter of a scaffold pole is 40mm, the internal diameter of a kitchen roll is 40mm, the OP asked for something similar to a kitchen roll :whistling::p

Unless you buy a new one, i think this is about the best solution - or at least it was for us when the same thing happened. You'll only lose about 10 - 12" off the height. If all else fails, tell the kids to stand with their arms outstretched and drape the washing over them - better still... peg it to them!!
