Depends what you're after. I got this one from Wickes yesterday: hotukdeals.com/dea…364
I think the Wickes one is a much better deal! same thing really part from being able to use it freestanding!! Wickes one is a £10 less.
But heat from me just for the effort!!!
Cheers all
I got this the back end of last year for £25, the same but green and yellow. It's wall mounted but has quick release brackets to use free standing. I think the hose is better than the wicks one, seems thicker. Also the enclosed casing helps the hose to be protected from uv rays. So all in all I would do got the screw fix deal.
had this last year. worth every penny
2in1 what's the second function apart from being a hose

I assume 2 in 1 refers to it being wall mounted or free standing

It reels forward from above, so (facing it) clockwise on left side, anti clockwise right side.

I think you can have it either way - the start of the hose (as in, where it comes out in the centre of the reel) isn't angled in one direction or the other.

As with the poster above, I have this in green and yellow and am very pleased with it. The plastic has faded a little (particularly the red quick-release clips) but it works very well. The plastic lug on the front which allows you to move the hose along the slot to make sure it coils correctly is a very good idea.

EDIT: and as shown in the photos on ScrewFix, you can have it with the handle on either side - so that gives you a bit of additional flexibility re winding it in

you are correct about either side. arrow on the housing shows direction to turn handle.

Yes the arrow shows the direction it's intended to be set up with - but what I'm saying is there's nothing to stop you just coiling it up the opposite way, and ignoring the arrow. The only issue would be the extra stress placed on the hose with the extra bend that would come with doing it the contrary way.

As above though, it's largely redundant as you can just change which side the handle is fixed (clockwise on one side would be anti-clockwise one the other)

Sadly, this code hasn't worked for me.
i know people are rating this cold as the wikes one is £19.99
but this one here is a fitted reel to a wall which is much better than freestanding reels in my opinion

This can be both - easily detachable from wall and used as free standing. I find it easier to roll the hose in when attached to a wall.
Good price, picked one up Saturday, easy to assemble, but for me a bit of a faf to use, it does not wind in or back easily enough, If you frequently fully extend the hose from the reel then this it will drive you mad. I will revert back to my car wheel and just dangle the hose over it, very practical, very fast, the wife hates it. Happy Sunday Folks !!
