    A lightweight and cost-efficient solution for storing and deploying audio and video cables ("snakes") in field applications. Remove the water fittings and feed the snake pigtails through the hub, where they can be tucked in for storage. Secure the loose end with a Velcro cable tie. The reels stack and lock together securely and conveniently in the truck. Useful on sound system jobs, video shoots, etc.

    20+ Year old flawed design needs fixing

    Back in the early 90's I owned this same exact hose reel minus the hose guide cheater part. Like everyone here I discovered the two tabs that held the garden hose connector onto the exterior of the reel had failed after only a few weeks of use.

    My solution was to put a generous amount of clear shower silicon around the flange that mates up against the reel box. Then I ran about three 3/4" drywall screws, 1/2" might do, around the flange into the reel box itself. With no hose in the reel you can see where to put the screws so you avoid piercing anything and where they won't interfere with the reels use.

    After what was at most a 15 minute fix, I had it last for almost 15 years on the southern exposure side of the house in the full sun. The main cause of death was the exterior flange finally cracked apart from that many years of exposure.

    The only pros being that it kept the same hose in it protected for all that time and I found the size of it to be small and unobtrusive.

    Otherwise the con's are heinous and numerous, the main one being it will most likely break right after a few uses and need fixing or returning. Also the pro of it being small is the second worst con as the standard rolling position for this reel is foot in the stirrup, bent over, with your butt in the air. Then using your left hand to guide the house back in forth into the box you'll be using the right to crank like crazy. The crank handle is way too short to have much leverage against the resistance of not only the house but the shoddy reel action. So count on be lightheaded and sore armed after reeling in a whole 100' in that position. And that's after walking the sprayer back to the box so the sprayer doesn't snag as you reel and letting you only reel against, at most, 50' hose length.

    And when you want to use it you just can't grab the sprayer and just go trotting off across the yard after you turn it on. You'll just come up short every time as it unreels just as smooth as it reels, which isn't very smooth at all. Instead you'll find yourself bent over in the reel position playing out the amount of hose you think you're gonna need. That's after checking the box for wasps as it's their perfect home and will stay occupied most the summer in most cases.

    My advice is find something in the store you can work the action of and check construction of before you buy. This is nothing more than a cheap busted direct from china 20+ year old design with the same problems now as it had then. It seems if people keep buying junk they'll continue making it.

    Comments about Suncast® Hose Hide-Away 100 ft. Hose Reel With Slide Trak Hose Guide (PHT100):

    The hose-fitting that connects to the faucet-hose leaked badly despite 3 gasket-changes. The reel handle has too short a crank-arm for a retired lady to wind comfortably. We returned the hose reel successfully to Ace. Thanks.

        Should have been designed to reverse sides for a right or left hand rear or front side cranking operation. Maybe there is, but no instruction to do so.

                Hose connection to cart comes off as soon as you turn on water.
                The two plastic pieces that go into the slot to connect it on flat and smooth. There are no teeth to keep it engaged when under pressure. Not sure how this design even made it on the market.
