    Default T Handle Hose WInder

    I saw a T-handle hose winder and now cannot find who sells one. Had a T-Handle on top with and adjustable length shaft and two pins and the bottom which trapped the coupling. Could use it to doughnut roll the hose and then cinch the roll quite tight. Any help would be appreciated.

    Build your own, we do. I saw one at another Co. that used an old steering wheel instead of a T.

    3/4" cold roll pencil shaped at the end so you can tighten an already rolled hose without having to unroll it.

    Roll the line the old way. Lay it out and begin at one end and roll to the other.

    Or just use the water key on the truck. Put the hose between the knobs on the end and turn. Why make one when u have one on the truck. BTW I argued with someone for 30 mins he thought the water key was a hose roller. I thought he was an idiot for not knowing what a water key was. Little did I know he showed me haha. Not my thing I prefer to just roll it like normal. It did work well however

    I don't know about your water system, but all of our street valves are square heads on the valve stem. So the street key is a square box welded to the end of a pipe. Am I missing something here?
