Hi, Due to several reasons I need to put up a washing line with a pulley and a winch (the crank i think it's called, that you turn around and the line tightens). I can't PULL the line anymore when the washing is on it, it is too heavy. I have no experience in this at all and am a little confused. (Photos included) Instead of a pole i have two hooks (B) firmly attached to two brick walls opposite each other about 10 feet up. Do i really need two pulleys (C) on each side as one of the photos below suggests? in which case i will need 2 of those cleats (A). Why can i not just tie the rope on to one of the hooks (B) on one side? Also can someone please show me how to use and install a winch and what kind of rope to buy, diameter, material, etc.
