"This comes with a few bits and pieces that need putting together, and despite the diagrams looking a bit daunting the Hozelock system was *very* straightforward in the end.
My older outdoor tap fits the larger fitting, but that was easy enough by removing the adaptor piece that comes in the fitting already.
Fittings all seem to work. I do need to fix the leaky tap, but that has nothing to do with this item!
I only scored features down slightly as the hoze nosel has a limited range of options, although one of those is "off" so you don't have to run back to the tap to stop the water flow. But if you want a trigger-operated head you will have to get one separately."
"This reel replaced one I had used for about 15 years, and it is far superior. I really like the way the wall mounting will allow me to dismount it when winter is approaching to avoid any frost damage"
"Excellent bit of kit. Wall mount or keep on floor. Good quality as you would expect from Hozelock. Easy to assemble - Short length of hose (cut length yourself) connects between tap and reel and the rest of the hose rolls around the reel. All connects using Hozelock connectors. You can unwind as much or as little as you want as the water is supplied through the reel then wind it back up when you have finished."
"I have fitted lots of hose reels for other people but this one was for me and i have to say the quality and fixing where brilliant compared to others. I will recommend this product to anybody that needs a hose reel in the future"
"The kit comes with everything that you need to mount on the wall. However the instructions are POOR, the pictures are not clear enough to help on what should be a simple fit. In simple terms they have made it too complicated for such a simple process of 3 hooks on a wall"
