The Hose Strain Relief Kit from Coxreels protects hose fittings and connections from damage when the hose is fully extended on the reel.
“The Hose Strain Relief Kit extends the life of equipment by protecting your hose from excessive localized strain,” says Jerry Medley, vice president of sales and business development for Coxreels. “The kit secures the hose to the drum reel and helps protect the hose at the fitting connection as well as the transition from the hose reel riser to the drum.”
The accessory is available for hand-crank and motorized reels with hoses between 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Each kit contains two clamp sizes to accommodate various hose-wall thicknesses. Between sizes for lightweight, soft-wall and cloth-covered hoses are available.
A slot system enables various-sized clamps to be screwed to a backer strip on the inside of the drum.
“All Coxreels drums are fully powder coated inside and out before assembly for maximum corrosion protection,” Medley says. “The installation process ensures there is no damage to the powder coat.”
While not designed for smaller jetter hoses, the kit can be used for any 3/4-inch O.D. hose or larger. The kit is recommended for all hand-crank and motorized reels; existing reels can be modified to accommodate the kit. 800/269-7335; www.coxreels.com.
