It's All In The Design
Made from high-grade aluminum and backed by a 10-year no-leak guarantee, the ELEY free-standing garden hose reel was born out of a desire to provide a durable and reliable alternative to the light-duty, box-style garden hose reels.
Location and installation are key factors in selecting a garden hose reel. Many don't need the portability of the larger and more expensive wheeled models, while others may not want to drill holes into the side of their house for a wall-mount reel. The ELEY free-standing garden hose reel is an excellent solution for both situations. At the same time, it's low-profile makes it ideally suited for out-of-sight placement behind bushes or shrubbery. You invest a lot of time, energy, and money into your home and yard. Isn't it time to invest in the best free-standing garden hose reel available? You deserve it.

Is the hose reel easily tipped over?
No, our free-standing hose reel will not easily tip over. It has a wide base with rubber feet to help keep it stable and weighs 23 lbs. For added stability, the hose reel can be staked to the ground or anchored to a solid surface.
Can this reel be anchored to a solid surface?
Yes, The rubber feet on the base of the 1042 Free Standing Garden Hose Reel have ¼” open rivet holes that can be utilized for anchoring the reel to a solid surface. You will want to select the proper hardware for your mounting application from your local hardware store.
Does this reel tip-over or slide on mulch, rock, gravel?
The ELEY Free-Standing Garden Hose Reel may slide or move if sitting on a loose impediment as the rubber feet need to contact a solid surface in order to hold it in place. If you wish to anchor the reel to the ground you can use up to a ¼” landscape spike through the open rivet holes in the feet. Or, you might consider putting the reel a solid surface like a paver at least 20” wide.
Can I mount it to a trailer?
No, the Eley garden hose reels are not 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.
Is assembly required?
Yes, however, don't let that scare you away. Quick and easy assembly was one of our R&D team's primary objectives when designing the durable ELEY hose reels. We provide an excellent assembly manual with the hose reel as well as a full step-by-step video demonstration of the assembly on this website.
