anchoring

How do you anchor this reel down without modifying the box?
Asked by: cloe
You can buy a package of 4-6 tent stakes (at Home Depot) and insert them into the ground through the slots inside the hose reel box. Not sure how you can anchor it on concrete.

how do i anchor this to the ground? or if i want to keep it on a concrete preferably because of where the faucet is located, how can i make it stable?

There is no manual. I have searched in you tube to find demonstration of this product; how to use it starting from assembling the hose to the reel. I could find nothing. that is very unusual. Please explain everything.

100 ft. Hideaway Hose Reel is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 173.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Be reasonable: this isn't a high quality reel, but not bad for the price. Bought this reel this morning at my local HD after searching online for reels that I really wanted, but didn't really want to PAY FOR! Spent twenty bucks for the reel and another three bucks for four galvanized twelve inch x 3/8" spikes. I used four 3/8" zinc washers from home and the spikes to anchor the reel firmly to the ground. (Drive them in at a slight angle for better holding power.) It does come with spikes, but they're shorter, flimsier, (word?) and I'll use them on something else. I bought a 90' "Farm Hose" with a lifetime guarantee (we'll see) from Rural King for about $20 and used that in the reel. I used another farm hose I already had for the leader, because my faucet wasn't that close to where I wanted the reel. I'll use the shorty leader hose that came with the reel for something else. NBD. When reeling up the hose, you need to have one hand on the handle and the other guiding the hose. It needs to be rolled up fairly neatly to fit the 90' by 5/8" hose on the reel. THIS IS NOT AN IDIOT -PROOF REEL!!! You have to have some common sense. And since you anchored the reel properly, you will have that other hand free to guide the hose. I've owned at lease 10 different types of hose reels and even the ones with "hose guides" that are SUPPOSED to layer the hose on the reel perfectly, don't. But then again, I've never paid more than $200 for a hose reel. As far as lifespan goes, if I can make this last for a calendar year, that's probably pretty good. It will probably require a new O-ring after a while...NBD. Once something major breaks, I'll buy another one for $20, use the same spikes I had for this one and be good for another year or two.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from lightweight, and as such, not fantastic It's super-light. The instructions do say that you should use spikes to anchor it into the ground, but in my case, I can't do that, because my hose location is over concrete. Because of that, this thing is very hard to keep still, and hard to operate by one person. It's alright, but not a great unit. A more expensive, weightier version would be better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great, if ... I would agree with all the bad reviews here, but for one thing: I drilled 4 holes in a heavy 16" paver and bolted the hose reel to it before I ever even used it. The weight of the paver is more than enough to steady the whole thing, and you can work the reel easily with just one hand on the crank. And you can still move it around and position it anywhere you like. Total cost was about 6 bucks. This actually works much better than any of the more expensive models I have had. Embed the paver in the ground and it will never move. This hose reel was clearly designed to be secured somehow, and anyone who complains about it without doing that is using it wrong. Regardless of what you pay for a hose reel, they all seem to have the same plastic parts inside, and they all fail the same way in the same time, and can't be repaired. At least when that happens with this, it will be cheap to replace. The paver is of course re-useable. You'll need a masonry bit to drill the holes, and a hammer drill will do it much faster. You could also screw it to a wooden deck, or use lead concrete anchors and screws instead of bolts. I have 3 of these rigged this way, and they work great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product doesn't work!! It came as a square bucket with the hose reel inside and four stakes to allegedly hold it in place. They aren't adequate and the whole thing bounces around when you try to pull hose out or reel it in. Also the cover pops off, and without it the hose won't reel in on track. Honestly, this was a total waste of my money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't hold it still while rewinding the hose There is no way to hold this still while rewinding the hose, so it moves around and the hose tangles. It also falls over when pulling the hose out. Designed for cheapness and you get what you pay. I'm throwing mine away because I have used it for four weeks now. I'll buy one with a bigger base and a foot rest to hold it down. I wonder if the engineers who designed this ever tried to use it?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ARRGH! Sure hope they'll take this back. I spent a weekend wrestling my hose and this pain in the caboose reel. And feel like I've been wrestling alligators. It leaked (but only after I "reeled" some of the hose on it). "Reeling" is a joke. You must reel with one hand, guide the hose with the other hand, hold the entire thing down with a muddy foot (from the leaking), and use whatever is left to keep the lid down. This was a bit of a waste of my time, money and bird poo. Most of them contained birds' nests and bird waste from being stored outside. If you're thinking about this product... move along!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Bought this product for a new 100' hose. Unfortunately the hose needs to be wound perfectly in order for it to all fit in. Going to return it as I can only fit 60' into the unit without sitting there and perfectly winding it up. Would recommend hose reel that hold 20% more than what you want.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too much hassle What looks like a great idea doesn't pan out. It's so light that there is not enough weight to hold it down while you are reeling in the hose. There is no footrest to hold it down, either. If they had provided that, it might have been better. It also can hold only a 50' hose standard green garden hose with less trouble. A more heavy-duty hose will cause problems. And, a 75' hose has too much bulk, meaning more hassle in reeling. Don't waste your money.
