Coxreels introduced a new hose strain relief kit for hose reels. The Coxreels Hose Strain Relief Kit protects the hose fittings and connections from potential damage by providing strain relief when the hose is fully extended on the reel. Under use, the clamp takes on the force from the over-extended hose and protects the hose fittings and connections at the riser from excessive tension. With the mounted strain relief kit, the hose remains secured against the drum allowing the hose to be routed between the riser connection and the clamp with a proper bend radius, minimizing the opportunity for the hose to strain, especially in soft wall hose applications.
This simple yet innovative accessory is available for hand crank and motorized reels with hose sizes between 0.5” and 1.5” hose I.D. The drums found on Coxreels hand crank and motorized hose reels now feature mounting slots to fit our hose strain relief kit. All existing hand crank and motorized hose reels in the field can also be modified to accommodate this kit.
