I must say, my experience with Hozelock doesn't match the price they charge. Most of the Hozelock nozzles, sprinklers and fitting I have bought have failed over the years, with the plastic perishing and cracking or component falling apart. I find the cheaper B&M / Rolson / Asda etc are just as good, last just as long (or longer) for a fraction of the price.
Out of stock Hozelock Hose Fitting Starter Set (toolstation.com)
This is £4.98 at toolstation
Hozelock's plastic is about the most robust in my experience, takes a certain amount of abuse before the neoprene o-rings eventually perish. The cheap lookee like ones are a complete waste of time, generally have all the strength and durability of boiled sweets. Brass ones worth looking at, about twice as expensive but last forever, but again need orings every now and again. Voted hot anyway because a local garden centre charges about this for just one hozelock fitting.
Sorry to say that the Germans have us beat. Gardena Professional > Hozelock. My plastic connectors all exploded and left me hozed! Planned obsolescence is rarely more obvious.
@apur32 this is back in stock again mate, please unexpire.
Agreed, bought one last time and fell apart first use. Customer service great but not sure the 2nd will be any better.
Was £10.79 a few weeks back, https://www.amazon.co.uk/GARDENA-Classic-Multi-Sprayer-single-hand/dp/B00PNUCI6 Also do a premium metal version https://www.amazon.co.uk/Metal-Plastic-Spray-Gun-Premium/dp/B08PMJ99GD All their prices have been jacked up. Full range of stuff here https://www.amazon.co.uk/s?k=Gardena+spray
Gardena (or Karcher) equivalent is much better quality than Hozelock. Don't leave it out though, Squirrels love munching on the rubberised parts.

Poundland ones are trash threads don't match up , Asda do a decent set as do Wilko or brass fittings from Screwfix or Toolstation
Can confirm end cracked off within a week. Piss poor quality
If you don't need all the fittings and want to spend less they do a version of this for a quid in Poundland or a one with the fittings for £2.99 in B&M Bargains. I'd already bought a Hozelock one for myself for £12 in Screwfix and think I would have just gotten the £1 one if I'd known. The Hozelock one is good but think the other ones would have done the job fine.
I think the fact you can have it either attached to the wall, or mobile!!

Thanks for posting. Just to let you know that your thread was selected for our Highlights pages (highfive)
Non around me. Have had a 15m kink free hozelock for over 25 years and never had any problems but need a 30m now. The Fritt branded ones from screwfix for £30 seem good enough and could possibly try replacing the old in the portable contained reel, as not really had problem with winding hose.
if you want a really good hose this won't show up in google searches but it is really good https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07FDKF5ZY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Back in stock for delivery, and just arrived today. When I rang Screwfix on Friday they did say they had about 400 coming in stock. Thanks OP, I do have a long Hozelock reel at the moment but it's a pain to use and pretty much needs fully unfolding before it'll work. This will help with reseeding the lawn once we finally get some summer weather
Showing one available in Maidenhead ...
Does it work at full pressure even when not fully unfolded? Their promotional site says so, but any confirmation from real users would be great
No worries, I've made the same mistake myself XD
Ah...right you are. Saw it at the top of the page under top comments which gave a false impression. Calmness is always good for health.
It’s £8.95 delivered ready to go, it’s a good deal If anybody needs one that’s the only reason I posted it (y) there usually cost more to buy
If your cart didn't come with one then could have ordered the connectors, and use some old hose or cut a bit off. If you want hozelock, then could have bought a hose connector starter set, you even get a spare nozzle. £6 from wickes, £6.50 from Amazon.
Then I’d suggest you had some missing parts and might like to have a word with them as obviously without them a cart hosepipe would be useless https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hozelock-2-in-1-reel-with-hose-25m-3686642?utm_source=mappshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=3686642&utm_campaign=2021-04-11

Never ever had a Hozelock nozzle pistol etc that did not end up dribbling! When you contact them the FIRST question they ask is “do you leave it outside in the winter”? Seems of all the requirements when designing a water nozzle being able to stand the basic English climate isn’t important
Bought it for £6.50 from B&Q the other day.
Something v similar happened to me albeit 1 v tiny prick hole spraying frm side, was at a loss what could have caused it to an otherwise solid thick plastic circular attachment.. (New plastic feeding bacteria for environment :) )
I bought a couple of these from Wickes a few weeks ago. I realise you can't go back in time but they were a fiver for the £6 pack then. I always like to use Hozelock fittings as they just work better and leak less. I've tried brass fittings but they never seem to seal as well as Hozelock. The only bad thing I can say is that the nozzle in both kits that I bought was of poor quality and not up to Hozelock's usual standard it leaks all round the middle of the nit on both. I only really wanted the hose fittings so not the end of the world but if you are buying for the nozzle, then I wouldn't bother and would chance the spray gun set for a few pounds more.
What looks like the same hose plus adaptors for £26 at Wickes, is this not a better deal? https://www.wickes.co.uk/Hozelock-7230-Hose-Pipe-Starter-Set---30m/p/114564?utm_source=google&scid=scplp114564&sc_intid=114564&gclid=CjwKCAjw9r-DBhBxEiwA9qYUpQbxegy7uyWSa7INoAkphHLm4TTcrIGioaOtklVkecH5mNl1NqGrVRoCfKMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
