Spring Return Hose Reels
Hoses that deliver air or water to pneumatic tools, sprayers, and other air or water pressure systems are stored in spring-return hose reels. Spring-return reels, also known as self-retracting, spring-driven, or spring-rewind hose reels, help retract hose onto the reel without the use of an external power source. Once users have pushed the hose to the proper length, the spring-return has a locking ratchet and pawl that locks into place. Pulling the hose out of the ratchet releases it, and the hose can then be rewound onto the reel.
