Stok Laundry is a retractable washing line that can be fixed and removed comfortably as you like. Most of the washing lines had the issue that the place to install them particularly in a small space is limited to a few pillar positions due to the structural reason of Japanese wooden housing walls. Our versatile rail system Stok is designed to perfectly adapt to these structures. Regardless of the pillar positions, it allows you to install many lines easily and anywhere on the rail. When not in use, you can easily release the lock and rewind the rope simultaneously just by one switch and you can put it away in any storage so that it helps to maintain a neat and tidy room.
