Coxreels recently expanded its lineup of mounting brackets with the new SMK-702 Series of swivel bracket accessories for 100 Series hose reels and V-100 Series vacuum reels.
SMK-702 wall-mount brackets are made in the U.S. and feature 360-degree rotation with multiple locking positions via an easy-to-use ergonomic pin lock, the company said. The powder-coated, black-gloss swivel bracket allows users to point the reel in the direction the hose is needed, improving function during payout and rewind.
“The innovative design of the swivel bracket offsets the front of the reels forward so that the reel swivels and tracks with the direction of hose payout if left un-locked,” Coxreels explained in a news release. “The full-length vertical bearing and stability-thrust bearing provide smooth and long-lasting rotation.”
The SMK-702 Series comes in two sizes: SMK-702-8 and SMK-702-12.5.
The SMK-702-8 is for use with 8-in.-wide 100 Series drum reels, such as the 112-3-100 and the 117-3-250. The SMK-702-12.5 follows the same logic for use with 12.5-in.-wide drum reels like the 112-3-150, 117-3-400, 112-4-75, 117-4-225 and the 117-5-100, but will also work with all 100 Series vacuum reels, including V-112-730, V-117-835, and V-117-850 even though the drum width is 13.5 in. on some of those reels, Coxreels said.
