This One Hose Reel Model Offers Two Directional Mounting Options
The ELEY model 1041 is a workhorse and the highest-rated wall mount garden hose reel on the market. Our most popular model can be assembled into either a parallel or perpendicular configuration. We show both options in the drop-down menu above so shoppers can see both options, but you don’t have to decide which one you want at the time of purchase. Once the garden hose reel arrives, you decide which configuration you want during the hose reel assembly process.
The arm of the reel can be attached to the wall plate in two different positions, which determines whether the hose reel will be parallel or perpendicular. You decide which configuration you want and attach the arm accordingly. The simple difference is in what direction the hose gets pulled away from the wall. The parallel configuration pulls the garden hose out alongside the wall, while perpendicular pulls it out straight away from the wall. The wall mount hose reel also comes with stainless mounting hardware for both wood-stud and masonry surfaces.

Common Questions - Wall Mounted Garden Hose Reel
To what types of walls and surfaces can this reel be mounted?
Whether you want to install this wall mount garden hose reel to a masonry surface such as brick, cement, cinder block, or a wood frame surface such as siding, stucco or Hardie Plank®, you'll find the answer to all of your questions in our How to Mount a Garden Hose Reel to a House article.
What's the difference between Parallel and Perpendicular?
The ELEY wall-mount garden hose reel can be configured for EITHER parallel OR perpendicular. Assembled into the parallel configuration, the garden hose will pull off the reel along-side the wall, whereas the perpendicular configuration will pull the hose out straight-away from the wall. You decide which configuration will work best for your particular application during the assembly process. The configuration you end up with depends on which of the two positions that the reel's arm can be attached to the wall plate you choose.. Click on the image to enlarge.
Does this reel pivot or rotate in different directions?
No. This model can be configured and mounted in a fixed parallel or perpendicular direction. The reel can also be reconfigured into either direction at any time by changing the orientation of the arm's attachment to the wall plate. However, the mounting direction is fixed and does not offer a rotating or pivoting action.
Once mounted, can the orientation of the hose reel be changed from parallel to perpendicular, or vice versa?
Yes, this can be accomplished by changing the orientation of how the arm & axle assembly is attached to the wall plate. To do so, the wall plate will need to be removed from the wall since the two bolts that attach the arm to it are accessed from the backside of the wall plate. For masonry surfaces that use anchor sleeves, you'll need to re-insert the bolts into the holes slowly and gently to get the threads restarted into the cone-shaped nut inside the anchor sleeve so as not to dislodge it or get the threads out of alignment. We've done this many times during photo shoots. We first take photos of the reel in the parallel position and then remove the wall plate, reattach the arm and remount the hose reel onto the brick wall to get photos of the perpendicular configuration.
