Vector Retractable Hose Reel is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 451.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but could be made better Its a great idea and it works great, the only problem is it doesn't last a long time. Usually right after a year mine goes and I take care of it, bring it in every winter but it still only lasts a little over a year which of course the warranty is no good. Still better than winding the hose by hand especially when its 100 feet of hose. Just think they could make the gears out of metal instead of plastic which is probably why it doesn't last.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I expected Just got around to setting this up and much too my surprise,,, this item and hose quality work pretty good. In-fact it is great! I have a rather big yard and have as many as 4 seperate locations with 100’ hoses and various hose rail systems, but each of them has good features and bad features with the worst being able to correctly stack the hose internally when be reeled it. So far this particular retractable hose reel is working great. I was a bit suspect of the quality of the hose but it seems to be perfect for this system. Time will tell

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Holes did not line up Holes did not line up for easy installation; had to drill out all four holes in plastic to allow input of bolts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't reliably rewind Very disappointed. I have to extend 20+ feet of hose to get it to rewind. And even then it may take multiple tries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Retractable Hose Reel Made! This is my 4th purchase of this item. They have 100’ of hose and retract the best of any hose reel I have ever used. After about 10 years I had too replace both on mine. The latest version is almost identical to the old ones, except they are improved with an adjustment to increase the retraction. I think this will be helpful after they have several years use. Excellent item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes Watering Easy! I’m a Grandma and I love doing yard work! The only problem I had was winding up the 100 ft. hose with my lower back! This is a Godsend! It makes watering so fun! I have three of these and No More bending and winding the hose!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Frontgate Vector Retractable Hose Reel Installed a new unit and tested it. Pulled the hose all 100 feet of it and started using. Pull just a little more pressure as if you want more length from it and the hose will reel back automatically. Develop a system to reel the hose back esp if all 100 feet is out to avoid issue. You can go near the unit itself pull the hose and gently guide the hose to reel perfectly inside the unit. It's effortless!!! You will love it! Thinking of getting another one for my front yard, but my manual hose and reel still works so it may have to wait.

Just purchased this item & love it. How do you adjust the tension? Btw... I’ve ordered 2 more. One as a gift. Makes my life simpler. Thank you!

Asked by: Jack2WA
Thank you for your interest in the Vector Retractable Hose Reel. To adjust the tension remove the side cover marked "Coil Spring Adjustment". If necessary, use a flat head screwdriver to pry it where indicated. Fold out the crank handle Turn the crank clockwise to increase the tension or counter clockwise to decrease the tension. Turn the crank handle 5 times in the desired direction. Check the spring tension by pulling a short length of the hose and letting it rewind. Repeat until there is enough tension to fully rewind the hose.

HOW IS ITEM 104882 DIFFERENT FROM ITEM 144861?

Asked by: noneS
Thank you for your interest in the Vector Retractable Hose Reel. This item is very similar to our 82' Automatic Retractable Hose Reel (104882); however, the Vector does have a longer hose but a slightly shorter leader hose. Also the Vector hose reel is exclusively for Frontgate.

Can I use any type nozzle with the retractable hose, and can I use it with a garden sprinkler, as well, ? thank you

Thank you for your interest in the Vector Retractable Hose Reel. This can be used with any type of nozzle as long as it fits a 5/8" hose. We do not recommend using this for a garden sprinkler.

How close from the water tap do you need to install the mounted reel? can it be any distance like 20 feet or so?

Asked by: txhernan
Thank you for your interest in the Vector Retractable Hose Reel. This item comes with a 6 ft. leader hose and should not be placed farther from your spigot than the leader hose will reach.
