Can I turn my spring retractable reel into a constant tension reel?

Yes, all spring driven polypropylene reels can be converted to constant tension simply by removing the latch mechanism. Please refer to your service manual for an exploded view of the hose reel components, or you can contact us for information on how to do this. Please ensure that if you're converting a reel in your workplace that staff are aware of the change from ratcheting to constant tension, and ensure the hose does not fly back uncontrolled. The force behind an uncontrolled hose under constant tension can cause injury to workers and damage to equipment and the reel itself.
