The Invention of the Flexo-line
As Copeman travelled frequently, he saw the need for a portable clothesline. So, he devised a flexible, lightweight, packable braided one made of three strands of surgical quality latex rubber tubing and nylon loop ends. His clothesline stretched up to 7 feet and held wet clothing without clothespins. Copeman named it the “Flexo-Line”, and in 1945, he established The Flexo-Line Company. Few changes have been made to the original, and for over 75 years, we’ve remained dedicated to using the finest quality materials. The Flexo-Line continues to be a trusted packing essential of leisure and business travelers worldwide.
Flexo-Line inventor, Lloyd Copeman, has been featured in a variety of publications including these:
