Well, it lasted 6 mo and after several repairs, I give up. This is the second one that has done this.
Heavy duty hose reel. Much better than my last in terms of construction (both the hose and the reel)
A couple of things i would change if I could have everything: 1. The mounting holes make it awkward to get it mounted. If the plate extended out beyond the reel, just enough to drive the bolts or lag screws into the mounting surface, It would be easier 2. There are less catches (where you can stop pulling the hose out and it won't retract) than my last reel. It would be nice if it were easier to hit the points where you don't get a retract.
Whoever designed this thing should stick to his or her day job. I usually try to focus on the positive aspects of a product when I write a review, so I will say that basically, this item works as advertised. The problem is that it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to mount. The 4 holes are positioned directly behind and in extremely close proximity to the reel. The directions call for 1/2" bolts. After purchasing 4 - 1/2" bolts, I ended up using 3/8" because the 1/2" didn't fit through the holes. Furthermore, unless one has tiny little hands, it is almost physically impossible to get a wrench behind the reel to turn the mounting bolts. You have to squeeze a wrench behind the reel and turn a quarter turn at a time, until the bolt makes it all the way into the mounting surface. This is a waste of time and energy. Although I generally like the reel, and the retractable hose, it's not practical when left on the floor so it needs to be mounted. Unfortunately, I can only give it 3 stars...
