Product Info

The Retractable Hose Reel Mounting Post is an optional extra that works 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.

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 300mm underground.

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

All Retractable Hose Reels are pre-boxed with a Wall Bracket and the package cannot be altered. The Mounting Post is an optional extra sold separately.

NB: Unlike the standard wall bracket, the reel cannot be locked on to the Hose Reel Post using a padlock.

Installation Tip

We recommend digging the hole 450mm deep and fill with gravel for the first 150mm. The post is then set on top of this, ensuring a depth of 300mm.

We decided to not use the wall bracket but get the post so we could position the hose in the best location, and the result is its awesome. We actually installed two posts, one front and one back! Have just ordered the second hose.

Post mount

Works wonderfully, we moved and wanted to take our hoselink reel with us but without a wall in the new garden to mount it, you had the solution worked out already for us Thank you

Convenient and easy to use

Great. It’s easy to pull the hose out and retracts nicely. The optional installation post is ideal, rather than attaching it to a wall

What a clever product

We wish we had perused your website more closely as it would have saved us a lot of hassle. We did not realise you made this product, which is the simplest, easiest to install, way of mountain our hoselink hose reel.

Security for hosereel

I had to purchase a mounting post because the hose reel would be positioned in the front garden where there are no walls. It would therefore be vulnerable to theft. By drilling a 7.5mm hole in the aluminium post at the same level as the hole in the round tubular post in the hose reel, I was able to padlock the hose reel to the post. This required a great deal of care to get the hole in the aluminium post at the same level as the hole in the round tubular post in the hose reel. I suggest that the aluminium post be supplied with a 7.5mm hole in the correct position to make life easier for the purchaser. Lockwood make a 40mm extended shackle alloy silicone padlock just right for the task, I took photos but have been unable to attach them. If you send me an email I will send them to you.

Neat way to solve a location issue.

My reel is at the back of a small city block and I wanted to make it as easy as possible to run the hose down both sides. This post was the perfect solution. And I got an extension lead to connect it to the tap on my wall when I need it. Only suggestion is that it would have been good to order it in the colourbond colour as my fence.
