The Retractable Hose Reel Mounting Post is an optional extra mounting solution designed to work with Hoselink's Retractable Reel.

The powder-coated metal post can be located anywhere in the garden and is ideal if you want a Retractable Reel but don't have a wall on which to mount the bracket.  Please note that unlike the standard wall bracket, the reel cannot be locked on to the Hose Reel Post with a padlock.

There is a hole on top of the post to hold the hose reel pin in place, allowing the reel to swivel 360° and follow you as you move around the garden.

This product is suitable for use with all Hoselink Retractable Hose Reel sizes.

Installation Advice

The post must be secured in the ground to take the weight of the reel, which can be accomplished with concrete (not supplied). The total post length is 800mm long and we recommend setting it in 250mm of concrete.

We recommend digging a hole 350mm deep and 250mm wide. Fill with gravel for the first 100mm before setting the Mounting Post on top and filling with concrete, ensuring a concrete depth of 250mm up the post.

This will require approximately 30kg of concrete.

For the complete installation guide, please watch our video here.

What's Included

1x Retractable Hose Reel Mounting Post. Hose Reels are sold separately. Our reels are pre-boxed with a Wall Bracket and the package cannot be altered.

You Will Also Need

Cement and gravel from your local hardware store.

*Reel not included.

Such a simple solution to mount the Retractable hose. Set in cement it is absolutely perfect at just the right height.

Bent after a few weeks

The post is not strong enough to hold the weight of the hose. We concrete ours into the ground and it has bent after just a few weeks.

Issues with using concrete to install post

I just received the pole, watched the installation video and it seemed all very easy. However, after checking the material of the post, it's aluminium, I realised that all quick set concrete products advise against the use with aluminium components. The chemical process creates significant heat that would weaken the material. Fairly disappointing, have to work something out now, as I don't want any problems in the future, planning to use pole for longer than 2-3 years. I would recommend that Hoselink addresses this issue, perhaps following up with the manufacturer regarding their recommendations, changing the design or, at the very least, the instructions.



Hi Andrea, Thanks for your review and your valued feedback. These mounting posts have been available for a few years and this issue has never raised with us. We will definitely pass this on to our products team for consideration. We do have a 30 day return policy so if this is not suitable for you we completely understand and please feel free to reach out on or 1300 900 617 to begin the return process. Hope to hear from you soon. Kind regards, the Hoselink Team.

Very short, doesn’t come with instructions - haven’t installed yet as I’ve had to rethink install due to not being what I expected

They want install no higher than 900mm yet post is 800mm and hasn’t even been installed yet It’s almost going to be touching the ground once installed which is not what I would have expected to mount a hose and they didn’t seem to have alternate sizing. A little disappointed with purchase as longer would have been better



Thank you for your review, Nina! I am sorry to hear you are not happy with this product. We pride ourselves on the quality of our products, so this is disappointing to hear. I will pass your suggestion of different size Mounting Posts over to our products team to see if this is something we can do in the future. Kind Regards, The Hoselink Team

Easy however the colour

Product straightforward, however would be good if it was available in the pale colour to match the retractable hose unit.



Hi Jayne, Thank you for your review and suggestion. Completely understand why you would like the post to match the hose reels, would certainly look more stream-lined. This is definitely something we can consider, we will pass this over to our product team! Kind regards, The Hoselink Team
