My hozelock auto reel has stopped locking. Have tried pulling it all the way out and then releasing but it does not solve the problem.


40 meter Hozelock auto reel would not lock when winding back into the drum.
1, Make sure the Hozelock hose has fully retracted into the drum.there should be no tension on the hose reel spring.
2, Use a Black & Decker Workmate.
3, Carefully opened the side cover taking out all of the Torx screws (10 in total) remove handle.
4, Turned the reel over and placed the auto reel onto the Black & Decker Workmate.
5, Placed a socket into the Workmate vice then line up the centre shaft bolt on the auto reel onto the socket, this will hold the steel spring in place so that I could undo the 2 security Torx screws. Slowly remove the 2 screws- there will be a little spring tension when removing the 2 screws, take care.
6, Lever up the centre shaft up out of the reel to expose the internal hose reel, take note the rotation of the plastic cog inside the cover.
7, Remove the brake locking arm from the side cover.
the arm had broken in half, I used a soldering iron to weld the two halves of the brake lever back together.
8, Rebuild in reverse order.
8, When rebuilding the auto reel use the ratchet and socket to tension the steel spring, I unwound the hose out of the drum then slowly wound the spring using the ratchet and socket. This wound in the hose onto the drum up to the hose stop then a couple more turns on the ratchet for a little more tension.
9, Whilst holding the ratchet keeping the tension on the spring. Replace the 2 security screws on the centre shaft .
10, This link on Youtube I found very helpful (46 sec into video) you can see the internal working and the brake lever.

Can the hose in the retractable carrier be replaced? How do I do it?


You can replace that hose by fully extending it and locking the reel. At that point you should be able to unscrew the hose from its connector. A replacement hose can be screwed on in its place.

One alternative, if the reel's hose connector isn't inside the spool area, would be to just cut off the hose at the break, then buy a replacement hose end (with barb fitting to match your hose) and a small stainless-steel hose clamp. They work really well when you get one that's correctly sized for your hose. They're hazardous out at the "business end" of the hose, though - they can cut your hands.

How do I fix Frontgate retractable hose reel


If the problem with your Frontgate retractable how is that it simply won't retract, on the assumption that the hose hasn't gotten off the coiling wheel and become tangled, and that there isn't a problem with the hose distributor - which runs off a rubber drive belt, or some other mechanical problem, it is possible to re-tension the spring on a retractable hose.

The principle of these retractable hoses is similar to the energy that is stored in the spring when you pull the starting cord on your lawn mower - which then retracts the cord when you release the pull handle. With the hose completely recoiled, using the blade of a screw driver, you can pry off the triangular cover on the left-hand side of the unit. You'll note four Phillips head screws which secure the round, black, plastic plate to the body of the caddy. If the tension is already "out" of the spring you can remove these screws and nothing will happen. If there is some residual tension remaining, the plastic plate may rotate clockwise a couple of turns when the last screw is removed (it won't spin like an airplane propeller, so don't worry . . .).

To re-tension the spring, I used a crescent wrench and opened the jaws so that the width matched the gap between the two slots you'll see in the plastic plate, and inserted the wrench into the two slots (the wrench will be at a right angle to the plate, at this point. Then, while holding the crescent wrench in place, I used a metal bar, and inserted it through the hole at the other end of the wrench (for better leverage), and turned the plastic plate counter-clockwise five full turns. Then, while keeping the tension on the plastic plate, re-insert all four Phillips head screws, and fully re-secured the plastic plate.

If the inner spring isn't damaged, this should restore the tensioning to the hose reel, as the spring will be further tensioned then automatically, as the hose is uncoiled - which will then be the stored energy that recoils the hose.
