    You can buy pvc pipe to use to hang hangers on . You can buy metal pipe hangers to secure them. Or if you want clothes line , you can screw in "o" or eye hooks then weave your clothes line through them . You can buy a retractable clothes line for under $20... That way it can be out of eighteen not in use.

    Large screw hooks would work well, sting the line between them. To hang your clothes you could use clothespins or maybe shower hooks with clothes hangers.

    Cut two pieces of wood, attach them to the sides of the joists at a level below where you want your rod and at a distance apart that is a little shorter than the length of your rod. Use a hole saw or spade bit in your drill and cut a hole in each. Run the rod thru the holes and then anchor it in place with a screw from the side or bottom.

    To install a hanging clothes rod from your basement rafters, you will need the following materials:

    • A clothes rod
    • Two hanging brackets
    • Screws
    • A drill
    • A screwdriver

    Here are the steps to follow:

    1. Measure the length of the area where you want to install the clothes rod. Cut the clothes rod to the appropriate length, if necessary.
    2. Choose a pair of rafters that are close together and strong enough to support the weight of the clothes rod and any clothing you will hang on it.
    3. Attach one hanging bracket to each rafter using screws and a drill. Make sure the brackets are level and spaced an appropriate distance apart to fit the clothes rod.
    4. Slide the clothes rod through the brackets and secure it in place according to the instructions that came with the brackets.
    5. Test the stability of the clothes rod by gently pulling on it to make sure it is secure.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
