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.
Please ensure you hold the Mounting Post in place before pouring the cement/concrete solution into the hole to avoid corrosion on the inside of the post.
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.
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.

My husband felt that the mounting post by itself was not strong enough to support either the 20 or 30 metre reel (we bought 3x30 metre reels and 2x20 metre reels), so he purchased a length of 30x30 galvanised steel post and pounded it 1.3 metres into the ground. He then used the mounting post as a sleeve into the concrete, so it supports the reel at a height that we could use it well. We love the reels and have all but one mounted that way. The other is on a wall. If it were longer, it would be stronger, but then it would be difficult to send by post.
fantastic,a must have in the garden
Very good product and easy to install does the job perfectly
The post allows for an ideal working height for use of the hose. Good installation instructions made the job easy and the post has remained perfectly stable. A very good product option to enable perfect positioning of the hose reel.
Great option, would be nice to have a locking option included I had to drill a hole in mine and buy a lock elsewhere. The reels are already setup for a lock when mounted traditionally to a solid structure.
I am pleased with the product. The metal shower handle is good. installing is is very easy. overall I am pleased with the product.
Easy, all concreted in and been using it ,very good, saved me lots of time and the hose is where I need it
Very handy device. I was looking into getting an aluminium post made up and attaching a bracket to it, but the cheapest quote I got was over $200. This was much cheaper and does the job perfectly, the only downside if you can't put a lock on the hose reel, but I just move the hose reel to the backyard when I am done watering everything out front.
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.
Followed the instructions and installed easily. Works a treat
