Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Laghouat manual hose reel
For keeping the hose out of the way and tidy, it is a good reel. It has a good rotating connection that does no leak. My only critic is the metal where the handle goes is very flimsy and bends easily to a point where you have to help the wheel with your other hand. Other than that, it is a good product and the 50 Ft. Hose adds to the value.
Because this hose reel is so light, I mounted it on my compressor. (see image)

I connected one of the units to my air compressor. Air is leaking joint that connects to the center shaft. I have to unplug the real when it is not in use.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by IndyOkie Have to agree with others- there are better choices
I fooled myself into thinking that for $40.00 this would work OK, It's simple and wanted simple. The fitting do leak- you'll need to put pipe dope or some tape on them ( I expected that. ) The handle is not a strong design, and the supplied hose is stiff and far from easy to rewind. Save yourself trouble and step up to a better unit with better hose, or just throw better hose around a hook. I'm not one to return a product, however this thing is just so far from what I expected. if it were mounted in store, I would not have purchased. That said - inside the box- buyer beware.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Do not buy this! Its a waist of time to even install it
As soon as you try to pull the hose out, the hose alignment arms grab the black mounting bracket and stops every 1/4 turn. The only upside i noticed was it didn't leak. Do not buy this reel it is a piece of junk.

Nice it comes with 50' of hose and claims to hold 100' I can tell you if you wrap it neatly this reel will hold 150' of 3/8 pvc hose BONUS!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shopper Purchased an Almost Identical One, Perhaps the Same Just Rebranded
I purchased a very similar one from Harbor Freight. Could it be the same exact product, but rebranded? Can someone verify? Great product for the money I paid at Harbor Freight, not Home Depot's price. Mine however only came with the reel. I already had a hose and leader hose.
