    FAQs & Troubleshooting

    What are the dimensions of the wall plate and mounting holes?

    eley model 1041 wall plate and mounting holes dimensions

    Can this model be mounted to stucco?

    Yes, The ELEY 1041 wall mount garden hose reel can be mounted to stucco.  However, it is extremely important that the reel is anchored into a solid surface behind the stucco finish.  The reel must be anchored into the wall studs and may require longer lag screws than provided.  If there is masonry behind the stucco finish you will use the sleeve anchors or a masonry anchor.  If you are not confident in your ability to locate the studs we recommend you consider the post mount, cart, or free-standing hose reel.  If you attempt to mount the hose reel to a stucco finish without locating the studs the reel will more than likely fall off causing damage to the reel and your stucco finish. 

    For brick, should I mount into the brick face or the mortar?

    When mounting to brick it is acceptable to mount the reel into the mortar joints, or directly into the brick or block itself.  Watch the video below for mounting to a masonry surface.

    Can the wall plate be mounted vertically instead of horizontally?

    Yes, The model 1041 wall mount hose reel can be mounted with the wall plate vertically as long as the reel is set up in the parallel configuration only.  The mounting holes will be 7-5/16 inches apart left-to-right, and 16-inches on center, top-to-bottom.  The wall plate of a perpendicular configured hose reel must remain horizontal.

    What is the best height to mount the reel to the wall?

    Because we are only discussing one variable at this time (height), consider the following ergonomic principles: 1)all work activities should permit the worker to adopt several different, but equally healthy and safe postures 2) where muscular force has to be exerted it should be done by the largest appropriate muscle groups available. 3)work activities should be performed with the joints at about the mid-point of their range of movement. This applies particularly to the head, trunk, and upper limbs. If possible, position the center of the reel six inches below your belt.

    Is it okay to mount this aluminum-alloy reel to pressure-treated lumber?

    The pressure treatments ACQ – (Alkaline Copper Quaternary) and CA – (Copper azole) are very corrosive and contact with aluminum should always be avoided.  We advise placing the included mounting hole standoffs between the reel and pressure-treated lumber.  If space does not allow the standoffs then stainless steel washers should be used.

    What size are the enclosed anchor bolts and wood screws and what size drill bit is needed?

    The mounting hardware supplied with the hose reel includes stainless steel lag bolts for stud wall mounting which are 1/4" x 2", and stainless steel sleeve anchors for masonry applications which are 5/16" x 1-3/4".  For wood lag screws, use a 1/8-inch drill bit and drill a hole 1-1/2 inches deep.  For masonry surfaces, use a 5/16-inch masonry bit and drill the hole 1-1/2 inches deep.

    Can this model be mounted to a trailer?

    No, the ELEY model 1041 garden hose reel is not designed for nor intended for over-the-road applications. The warranty of the product does not apply when products are used in excess of their rated capacities and design functions or under abnormal conditions.
