    Wood Post Mount Garden Hose Reel

    How Your Order Will Arrive

    The Wood Post Mount Garden Hose Reel (1041W) combines our 1041 wall-mount hose reel with the wood post kit. You will receive two separate boxes: one labeled Wall Mount Garden Hose Reell and another labeled Wood Post Mount Kit. The arrival times of the two packages can differ slightly so you may receive one before the other. NOTE: The wall mount reel comes pre-packaged with its own hardware. Use the wood post kit hardware to complete your 1041W set up. Wood post not included.

    Extreme-Duty, No-Break Construction

    Rugged, rustproof metal construction, along with high-grade stainless steel hardware, delivers years of commercial-duty durability and reliable performance. An easy-mount wall plate, comes with all necessary stainless-steel mounting hardware. Coated with a high-grade, Spartan-bronze powder coat finish, Eley garden hose reels are backed by our industry-leading 10-Year No-Break and No-Rust warranty!

    Drinking-Safe, No-Leak Plumbing

    Forget about leaks. The entire plumbing on all Eley garden hose reels consists of just two ultra-durable and drinking-water-safe components; our brass swivel (or rotary union) and our 6-1/2 foot polyurethane inlet hose, (also referred to as a jumper hose). Eley garden hose reels are backed by our industry-leading 10-Year No-Leak guarantee!

    Practical, Easy-To-Use Functionality

    The product development team at Eley Corporation aren't just designers...they're pioneers. Their cutting-edge features were specifically designed in to make your watering tasks easier and frustration-free. For example, the reel allows you to set it up for either left or right-hand rewinding . In addition, our revolutionary cam-lever brake along with a comfort-grip crank handle, an innovative hose strap, and smooth-spin axle bushings, all combine to take the work out of your watering and cleaning activities. And for those that need it, an Extra-Capacity Kit will increase the hose capacity of your hose reel.

    Common Questions

    What is the actual wood post dimension that the brackets will mount to?

    Lumber dimensions are a bit misleading. When the board is first rough cut from the log, it is to the true measurement, such as a 4" x 6" post. However, the drying process and planning of the board reduces it to its finished dimensions. As such, our reference to a 4"x 6" post, is actually a 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" post. The wood post kit that comes with this hose reel, is designed to fit on posts whose exact width is either 3-1/2" or 5-1/2".

    Can the hose reel wall plate be attached to the wood post in a horizontal position?

    No.  The wall mount hose reel must be assembled into the parallel configuration and the wall plate rotated into a vertical position.  The end of the wall plate in which the hose reel arm attaches to it can be positioned on either the top or bottom of the vertical positioning. 

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

    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 a pressure-treated wood post?

    The pressure treatments ACQ – (Alkaline Copper Quaternary) and CA – (Copper azole) are very corrosive and contact with aluminum should always be avoided.  The paint on the wood post L-shaped brackets should provide an adequate barrier.  However, if you want additional protection you can place a stainless-steel washer between each of the four wood post brackets and the pressure treated post.

    What size of hole should I dig for the wood post?

    We recommend the hole be 30 inches deep and 12 inches in diameter.  We don't recommend an 8-inch diameter hole, following the recommendations of the concrete manufacturers.  There must be enough concrete from the corner of the post to the edge of the hole.  A 4 x 4 post in an 8-inch hole would only give 1-1/2 inches of concrete.  Freeze-thaw cycles and loads on the post could easily crack that thin of material.  Visit the QUICKRETE website for more details and an informative video on Setting Posts in Concrete.   

    I have a question about the mounting and installation of this model.

    Please visit our Assembly Instructions - Post-Mount Hose Reel to view assembly and installation FAQs, downloadable PDF instruction manuals, and step-by-step assembly demonstration videos.

    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 and installation on this website.  Please visit our Assembly Instructions - Post-Mount Hose Reel page if you'd like to preview the manual and video.

    Can the reel be removed for winter storage without removing the wall plate?

    Yes,  The post-mounted hose reel can be removed from the axle/wall plate without removing the wall plate from the post.  Please see the steps below.

    1. Disconnect your hose from the brass swivel.  (You will leave your hose wrapped up on the reel for storage.)
    2. Unthread the brass swivel from the axle of the reel by loosening the silver retaining nut from the axle by turning it counter-clockwise.
    3. Pull the swivel and about 6” of hose out the front side of the reel
    4. Unthread the brass swivel from the inlet hose.
    5. Slide the cam-lever brake off the axle.
    6. Slide the hose reel off of the axle and take it to your designated space for winter storage along with the swivel, brake, and inlet hose assembly.
    I don't see my question on this list.
