About Me Budget Shopper
I tried to use next to my house but too filmsy to hold my hose. I guess if I used one of those scrunch you hoses it would be ok. It kept falling over from the weight. I was really hoping it would work. I sent back one I hadn't opened and will try to use the one I opened by putting it by the fence and securing it to it to give it more strength.
Stakes are too short to keep in ground or not break

I bought 6 of them. I didn't want to reel up my hose after each use, so I used them by spacing them apart along my front yard to hang my hose on the top 1/2 of them so it kept the hose off the ground. I didn't use it to wrap the whole hose around it. I don't think it would hold up to wrap even a small hose around it. First issue is it doesn't say you have to assemble it by attaching 7 screws. Make sure you screw each on real tightly or it won't hold the parts in place. It didn't have any written instructions. It only had a picture with the parts next to the pole, but it didn't state how to assemble it. Not all parts looked like the picture & I'm real good at putting things together. The top plastic caps doesn't fit over it very well, because there's a metal hook that also goes inside the hole, so it's in the way for the cap to go over it securely. As I used a rubber mallet to hammer each stake in the ground, the stake either bent as it went in (And the ground was soft from raining days before) or the stake bent after laying the hose over the top of the first level. Or, when I did hang the hose on the top of it, the pole would fall over, because the stakes aren't long enough to stay stable in the ground, not even with a little weight on it. The stakes need to be a few inches longer, so it will stay in the ground & handle any weight on it. Great concept, if they made the stakes a lot longer. Also, I feel they need to be taller. I'm only 5'2" & I was bending down to hang the hose just on the top 1/2, but if you wanted to wrap the hose around it, as it was made for, you would have to get on you knees to get it around both levels.
It was very easy to assemble. It does the job.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Yes,easy to assemble, but once hose was put on the holder bent, bottom stake bent. Was a gift for a friend so will look elsewhere for this item.
