Answer: 
No in this case coiled does not mean 'ready to spring" but "to arrange or wind (something long and flexible) in a joined sequence of concentric circles or rings". You do however have to be careful not to stretch this hose so that it loses its coil memory because if it does the hose will become difficult to manage.

That way when you put it away again, you can try to match up the lines. Just as a guide of sorts (if you are making different sized coils in the mount, it won't fit, they have to be uniform).

Asked by
Santa Clara, CA

June 20, 2014
just wondering if the 1/2 in. means that both ends of the hose have 1/2 in. fitting,
one male and one female. So I can use it to connect to shower-head-pipe.

and for nozzle, normally 3/4 in., I need an adaptor of 3/4 in.(male) to 1/2 in. (female).
does this kind of adaptor exist?

Thanks!

1/2 in. Dia x 50 ft. Coil Water Hose is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 276.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1/2 in. x 50 ft. Coil Water Hose I received 1/2 in. x 50 ft. green coil water garden hose, everything looked good from shipping. I like that it has a heavy duty strong U-shaped rack with the coil water garden hose. Installed the U-shaped rack outside by side of my house near the faucet.. The coil water garden hose was light , not heavy like other not coiled water garden hoses. And the coil water garden went back to it's original to the to the faucet area very easy after the use. no messy to leave garden hoses on the ground. no trip over the loose garden hose on the ground.
Date published: 2016-10-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact hose design This coil water hose is best for smaller jobs like watering containers or bathing the dog. I had no trouble installing the hanging rack, although it is unclear to me why there is a screw provided for the middle of the rack as it is not securing anything in that position. Nevertheless, the hose is nice and light and the pressure is strong enough, even going through my regular hose to get the job done. This hose has metal fittings which should be sturdy. Apparently, you should not run hot water through the hose and it is not lead free. If you return the hose to its coiled storage position every time it is used it should retain that shape. Be careful not to stretch it to the full length to avoid kinks and misshapen coils.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Storage Idea This hose & coil is a good buy for those who are storage minded. The coiled hose didn't work as well as I thought it would mounting it to the house, simply because of my concern stretching it across the yard repeatedly would wear it out. Instead, I mounted it to a 50 gallon water tank I have to use watering the trees out across our driveway. Using my water tank, I save our other hoses from constantly being ran over from driveway traffic. Simply fill it at the house, park it next to the tree, crack the line and let it trickle water. I did have to glue the little black caps in, but nothing that isn't a major defect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from HANDY FOR SMALL JOBS Got this hose for when I usually pack my main hose away during the cold months to prevent freezing and cracking. Good compact to quickly hook up to the spicket when you need it. Thick high quality rubber prevents kinks and quickly coils back up with some assistance. I personally did not mount the storage rack but it is not flimsy at all made of steel. Being a 1/2 inch hose you also get less water than the usual 3/4 inch, but I use it for small job, serves it's purpose. The one thing I do notice is, because of it's coiled nature it seems, the hose doesn't extend to it's full 50 feet. Was able to extend mine to about 40 feet and that's with applying tension to it while using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy hose I mainly got this hose to use this winter in my greenhouse; I wanted something lightweight and small that I could keep in the house and carry outside to use when necessary. I like that it has a U-shaped rack, but I'll probably come up with something else to use for storage in the house and just use the rack outside, if I decide to mount it on the house or something else. The hose attached easily to the spigot and the nozzle, however, the nozzle-end attachment is narrow and not easily maneuvered by slightly arthritic hands. I will probably get a couple quick-connect attachments to use in conjunction with this hose to speed up the amount of time I'll be spending outside this winter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better coil hose I needed a hose to spray off patio, water plants, etc. I am not usually a fan of the "coil" hoses but I thought I would give this a try because in theory I thought this would work. I am pleasantly surprised. First of all, this is not some wimpy little hose. The hose is actually fairly meaty. I did not have kink problems as I have seen with other coil hoses. The hose is softer than normal coil hoses and works great. My only negative is the connections are pressed on and do not appear to be very robust, but we'll see how it holds up. Works good so far. It comes with a mounting bracket that I did not use because I did not want to drill into the stucco on my house but looks like it would work good.
Date published: 2017-01-05
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice small compact house This is a small coiled hose that is good for small chores that don't require a standard 1/2-3/4" volume but not a replacement for a standard garden hose. The idea of the coiled hose is good and it works okay for the size of this hose but would be hard to use this as the main hose for the average house. It is easy to stretch out and comes with the mounting rack to store it. If you're need is compact like a condo or apartment, this will be your hose but with a large yard, I recommend a standard garden hose. This hose may be 1/2" but the water volume is much smaller.
Date published: 2016-09-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hose I have arthritis and tugging a hose all over the yard is too painful. I love these hoses. They are light in weight and spring back to the faucet area very well. I have one that I have had for about 8 years and it still works like a charm. I bought 3 more of these to spread about the garden and yard. The hose hanger is helpful and very stout, but sometimes its a bit of a challenge to get the hose rehung all of the way, although most of the hose I can manage. I put a short (15") hand held sprayer on each of them and can do anything I did with a big standard hose. My only reason for the markdown in quality is that these newer hoses do not seem to be quite as beefy as my older one. They still work great and I've put all of my heavy hoses aside.
