Unlike the other reviewer I found this hose was straightforward to put together - diagram shows you how. Took 10 mins to assemble. Just be patient, its not a race and can give a small sense of satisfaction when finished. Although mounted on our back wall, it reaches down the side of the house to both front and rear gardens.
Hozelock do ones with auto-rewind, but this isnt one of those (they are more expensive) - manual rewind is easy,burns a few extra calories, and the grey hoze guide can slide left and right for you to spread hoze evenly on reel. Sinch.
Havent needed to take off the wall yet, but its great if someone needs to borrow you hoze or if you want to lock it away in your shed when on hols, etc...
Highly recommended. Go check one out in store, then buy from Amazon where its normally cheaper - as i found to my cost...!
