Retractable Hose Reel Post is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mounting post for hose reel Post makes the hose reel installation easy. Frontgate continues to offer great products!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Read Reviews Like everyone else, the retraction of the reel starts to fail around a year. Guess we were lucky and got almost 4 years out of ours. Disappointing from a Frontgate product. Retraction spring failed. Not repairable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Older version was easier to install I gave this a poor rating only because they have changed the bolts that hold the hose base onto the reel bracket. It’s extremely difficult to get any tool to fit between the bolt and hose base to screw it in. We bought two of these because we love the older version, and we could not get all four bolts secured into either one of the brackets. The bolts should be a little longer and/or the plastic center part of the base around the bolt openings should not pultrude so close to it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to mount the reel. After reading about the difficulty others had with the threaded bolts, I would have thought Frontgate would have taken care of the problem. They have not. If you order this, test the bolts before sinking the post in concrete. I had to bore out the plastic on one post to get the bolts to line up. On my other, I still can't get two of the bolts in. What should take minutes, takes hours. Not sure how I will fix this as it is in the ground.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from leaks and wont roll up after one year This hose was replaced three times by frontgate, they all leaked and wouldn't roll up. Now I see they reduced the price. Even at this price the product is not worth it. Its flawed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY Hose reel instruction tell you to mount 30+ inches off the ground, but post puts it 2 feet lower. Pain in the neck to use. If it weren't set in concrete I'd return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great quality Installed two posts in my yard. Impressive materials and strength. Professional looks. Only issue I had on both posts was the hose reel bracket holes didn’t line up exactly with the threaded holes in the post. I had to bore larger holes in the plastic bracket in order to screw all 4 bolts into the post.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality I took over an hour to bolt the bracket to the post because the mounting plate was bent, the tapping was poor, and the holes on the post did not line up to those on the bracket. You’re better off using a 4x4. You’ll spend less time cutting and painting a piece of wood than you will battling the poor construction of this post. If you do buy this, add vice, hammer, drill, and tapping set to the list of required tools.

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.
