Hose Reels are used to store and transport your cord. They come in different lengths and types such as standard, long, or extra long. There are several reasons why you would want to use a hose reel:
You need to keep your cords organized and separate from each other. You may have multiple extensions cords in different locations on your house. A hose reel allows you to easily move these cords around without having to worry about them getting tangled up with one another. If you’re looking for a quick way of moving some extension cords around, then a hose reel might be just what you’re looking for!
If you’re not sure which type of reel is right for you, there’s no wrong answer. All of them work well and all of them will do their job. Just choose the one that best fits your needs. Here at FreeReel, we carry both standard and extended length hoses so you can get the most out of your reel!
If you’re looking for a little extra length to the hose or just need a heavy duty option, our heavy-duty reel is exactly what you’ve been waiting for. It’s made of a hard plastic that can hold up to 100 feet of 14/3 cable without breaking a sweat. With this option, you don’t have to worry about your cables not fitting on the reel because it can handle the big cables as well as the small ones! You can find this one at most hardware stores. There are actually a lot of different options when it comes to hose reels and FreeReel offers them all.
When you’re looking for a hose reel, you really have to think about a few different things. The size and length of the cord(s) that you plan on storing is really important. You also have to think about how and where you are going to store it. If you have a very specific idea in mind of what you want, then you can build one yourself. This is not recommended for people who aren’t particularly handy because they can be pretty complicated to build.
I would not recommend that you buy the first reel you see. Instead, look around a bit and try out a few different options before settling on one.
A good place to start your search is on Amazon where you can easily find a lot of different options. They range in price from very cheap to very expensive and the quality varies just as much. You can also try your local hardware store or search online for “cable reel” and see what comes up. If you already have a particular brand in mind, then it will be much easier for you to find what you’re looking for.
The size of the reel that you need really depends on how big your cables are and how much extra you want to wind up on the reel. Obviously the bigger the cable, the bigger the reel will need to be.
