Information about neatfreak! Folding Drying Rack - Wood
Closeouts. Indoors or out, this neatfreak! folding drying rack provides 27' of space for air-drying your laundry -- try it inside the bathtub for drip-dry items, or bring it outdoors to take advantage of a warm, windy day!

Yes, assembly required. It wasn't difficult. The biggest problem is that it comes apart at the top at the slightest lifting (it's supposed to detach, in order to fold for storage). I found this annoying, so I took two heavy duty rubber bands and wrapped them around the junction of the top bar when it comes apart for folding. I leave it like this, tucked out of the way, rather than folding.
I have used it a lot already in the 2+ months I've had it. Happy to be saving on electricity bills. So I think it's a good value for a single person. Probably not enough rack space for a couple of family doing multiple laundry loads.

I ordered this specifically for a wool sweater. It is true to its functionality. I had a difficult time assembling this. The directions looked simple, but almost too simple. The product itself is not well produced, could have used more durable products, with that stated, the price was right. So, would I get this again, maybe, but again, I purchased for an item and it does its duty.

1. The rack comes unassembled - there is no mention of this in the listing.You need a screw driver (Phillips) or Phillips driver bit.
2. The 9 cross pieces are held by 6 screws at the ends of 3 cross pieces. The plastic tabs at the end of the other pieces dislodge on opening/closing.
3. The 6 plastic tabs used with the screws have a hole drilled in the center. Mine were randomly placed so I had to move them.
4. It is very light weight belying the weight listed - taking "advantage of a warm windy day" would no doubt result in the rack blowing away.
5. The top of the rack needs to be bent to fit over the plastic holding the rods.
6. The screws do not easily enter the end of the cross pieces (I used an impact driver). Left the choice of splitting the wood or protruding screws.
7. The heads of the screws are beveled (nice) but the plastic receiver tab is not beveled to accommodate the screw.
8. The cross pieces are smooth wood and are marked for assembly purposes. Instructions are illustrations - no words.
This product disappoints on several fronts. Hoped for sturdy rack that could work indoors and out. Received a strictly indoor, "for delicates only" wobbly rack that falls apart at the slightest provocation.

Beware, this product does not come assembled. As far as I can tell, the components are not designed to actually fit together. The pieces that hold the rods in place do not screw down far enough to hold them in position. Just when you think you have most of the rack put together, the whole thing collapses. What a waste of 1 1/2 hours. I advise avoiding this product!
