Retractable Hose Reel Post is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Podercoat issue After mounting the post, I discovered that the tapped holes had not been protected during the powder-coating process. This made it impossible to secure the hose reel support. I had to buy an m8 tap to clear the threads. The second post wasn't quite as bad as the first, but this problem should have been caught in quality control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hose reel post this is the third one I bought, I like that it is marked how deep it goes into the ground no measuring and is well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a MUST The hubby wouldn't let me attach the hose reel to the siding, this option works perfectly!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor design yet sturdy I was slightly surprised to see that the post needs concrete. More importantly, the post is "threaded" for four bolts that attach the hose reel bracket to the post, except the threads are terrible and it's next to impossible to get the bolts started in a way that doesn't rip off threads. I ended up buying longer bolts and hammering them in to get them started then levitating a nut behind the threaded portion to get the bolts to hold. Nonetheless, now that it's done, it seems solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sturdy post the post seems sturdy and durable. The hose reels are still backordered, so haven't been able to really test the complete assembly. High quality though,

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as pictured Complete miss match I am very disappointed when I received the order and went to install this. I ordered 2 hose reels and 2 mounting posts. i chose this product for the clean look and the color which matches the exterior color of my home. The mounting posts are brown ( as pictured) but the hose reels them selves are grey in color and do not resemble the photo at all. At this point i am considering shipping them all back to the company for a full refund because the price i paid for these is not worth it now that the items do not match. I spoke to the customer service area and it was confirmed that the vendor changed colors but the photo was not updated. Very Frustrated

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hose Reel Post not as advertised I hesitated to buy the post as no pictures or words describe how it sits in the ground. I trusted Frontgate would provide a suitable anchor. Instead, the instructions say to pour concrete to below the frost line and stick the post in the concrete. As I have never had a hose reel last forever, this is not an option. The description says the hose reel sits 4' above the ground. The post is less than 4' and you are instructed to sink 2' of it into the concrete. I will find an alternative for mounting the hose reel (my second purchased). The reel is great. Not so much the post.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No instruction on hose reel post The hose reel post is a great means of attaching the retractable hose reel. However it comes without instructions as to its installation. We guessed it requires a post hole and a concrete base so that what we did.

I wish to mount new vector hose reel on existing pole from the previous unit. I did not purchase pole again. I believe the hardware (bolts) with hose rell are for fixed wall mounting only. What do I need to mount new unit on exisiting pole?

Asked by: IowaWink
Thank you for your interest in the Retractable Hose Reel Post. This post does not come with hardware; the hardware that comes with your hose reel should be used to attach it to this post.

how deep to bury this in the ground

I understand the best way to cement the post. What I was wondering how deep should I go with the pole.
Asked by: jimmyp
Thank you for your interest in the Retractable Hose Reel Post. There is a line on the pole that shows where ground level should be. When properly mounted, the hose reel will rest about 4” above the ground.

Does the hose reel post also come with mounting bolts to attach the hose reel?

Asked by: JonA
Thank you for your interest in the Retractable Hose Reel Post. This post does not include the mounting bolts as they are included with the hose reel itself.

Can any hose be used with this reel or does it have to be the recommended hose?

I just bought a brand new hose and am not going to buy another. But this product looks good!
Asked by: Nicoa4494
Thank you for your interest in the Retractable Hose Reel Post. This post is designed to be used with our Vector Retractable Hose Reel (144861). It could be used with a different hose reel as long as the mounting screws are in the same place.
