An Automatic Hose Reel that Makes Storing Your Hose Easier: Claber 8988 Rotoroll Automatic Hose Reel with 33 Foot 1/2-Inch Hose

Claber 8988 Rotoroll Automatic Hose Reel with 33 Foot 1/2-Inch Hose

Washing your own car at home can save you a lot of time and money! Yet, do you cringe every time you have to unwind the hose before and after you wash your car or water your plants? Well, now you no longer have to waste time unwinding the hose before any watering job at home, or even bother with reeling it up after you are finished.

The Claber Automatic Rotoroll Garden Hose Reel is spring-loaded powered with no tangling hose wind-up—perfect! The patented locking device guarantees safety when hose gets rewound and when in use; the locking device takes place automatically when hose is dropped accidently or can be activated by pulling quickly on the desired hose length pulled out. To unlock and rewind the hose, simply give a short tug on the hose and walk it back to the unit. The winder guide moves back and forth ensuring the hose to coil evenly and noiseless.

It is complete with all necessary mounting hardware, unit swivels 180-degree if wall mounted, and potentially 360-degree if floor/patio mounted. The aluminum pin is rustproof and allows easy removal of the reel in the winter time. Unit includes 33-feet 1/2-inch hose which, compared to the 5/8-inch hose, is very light but slightly reduces water flow ; the 3-layer braided hose is resistant to high water pressure handling bursting pressure of 435 PSI. Spray nozzle patterns are (clockwise) wide cone, narrow cone and straight; counter clockwise for off position.

The Claber Rotoroll Automatic Hose Reel also features quick-click couplings for practical faucet attachment and female hose connector with water-stop feature that automatically shuts off water when hose is detached from the nozzle (to use with any other type of nozzle, male accessory adapter is needed, sold separately). Made of polypropylene and molded in glass fiber reinforced plastic that is shockproof and UV-resistant. Minimal assembly and tools required. Handles water temperature up to 104°F and outdoor temperatures up to 122°F.

This product is also available with a manual reel or with a 66 foot hose, sold separately.

Eliminate the Roosting and Nesting Surfaces of Pest Birds on Your Property With The Bird-X SP-50-N Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit

Bird-X SP-50-N Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit, Narrow 2 1/4-Inch Width, 50 Feet Long

Sleeping with your window open can be quite refreshing and soothing to the ear-until an annoying bird comes roosting along! How many times have you tried to enjoy relaxing in your bed or sleeping in on your day off, when that pestering bird lands on your roof top, ledge, or gate in your back yard and wakes you up with that loud cawing sound of a obnoxious crow. Must drive you insane! I think we’ve all been annoyed and woken up to a birds calling, but guess what…? The secret weapon to ending those irritating bird calls has finally arrived!

Block Pest Birds from their favorite landing and roosting surfaces with the Bird-X SP 50-N Polycarbonate Stainless Bird Spike Kit. Tough, long-lasting polycarbonate plastic material provides maintenance-free protection. The spikes function as a ‘keep-out’ sign for birds. The flexibility of spikes allows mounting on most surfaces and is easy to install with adhesive. Each section of spikes covers two linear feet, and a “spread” or width of up to 6-inch. The polycarbonate design features a clear, transparent material that blends with surroundings which is great for high-profile areas – Bird-X spikes repel birds with continuous 24/7 operation that can last a lifetime.

Once installed they are maintenance-free, no upkeep or ongoing repairs are required. A bendable base mounts flat, or on concave or convex curves. Install right side up, upside down or on any angle. The two-foot strips come pre-assembled (no extra labor). Each strip “locks” with the next for a seamless fit. Strips snap to the inch for precise measurement and no wasted material. Attach with Bird Spike Adhesive Glue, nails, screws, or wire (each sold separately).

Birds instinctively fly to “landing strips” such as roof ledges, windowsills, building projections, signs, statues, trusses and beams. Now you can keep them from landing on your property and building nests with the Bird-X SP-50 Polycarbonate Bird Spike Kit; and you can save a substantial amount of money that may be incurred from damages typically caused by bird infestation and destructive, corrosive droppings that require the repair of insulation, siding, and roof replacement. Not to mention the possible diseases that are associated with birds such as Avian Flu, West Nile, Histoplasmosis, Salmonellae, E-coli, and more.
