Clothesline sags

Laurel Hill, FL

Have one of those homemade lines someone gave me. The cross pieces are pipe with holes drilled through to hold the line. There are three cross pieces and 4 lines, each of which are independent of the other. All 4 lines sag miserably, so my clothes are always dragging the ground. Is there some sort of device I could buy to attach to each end that would rachet the line up tightly enough to keep the clothes up higher? The pipes have a cement base, and they are buried a little too deeply, but the end posts aren't long enough, I don't think. The height should be at least 5 1/2 ft. to clear the ground. Any advice is welcome.
