Kinking Hose On Supply Reel?

Doesn't matter what kind of supply hose you buy, it will kink. Usually on the supply reel its where the hose connects to the reel. I remembered a trick that Bob posted one time about using a strap to help keep the the hose from kinking.

I added a 3/4" street 45 to the reel to help a little more.

Of course you can just reel out all your hose to get the kink out....but this little fix is so you don't have to.

That's a good tip. Most water fed pole hose that window cleaners deal with isn't very sturdy and kinking on a reel can be an issue. Thanks Guy.

Excellent tip Guy. I remember taking one off one day, the clamp, and having a hard time getting it back on and thinking, what the hec does thing do anyway...so i gave up and didn't put it back on. Next day after working I found some determination and put it back on.

The 45 degree fitting is a great tip as well
