    "Hi this is 100% possible. With all the fittings that are now available in the market putting a retractable washinh line onto an existing metal pole is very do-able. Go to screw fix, b&q or tool station and they will advice you accordingly. Hope that helps."

    Without seeing this it’s hard to tell, but I don’t see any reason why not"
