New Australian patent granted for automatically releasable hose reels

Announcing the release of a new patent to one of the greatest innovations in the hose and cable reel industry

Reel Tech, Australian leader manufacturer and supplier of hose and cable reels, has been granted a 20 year Australian Patent for its automatically releasable hose reel assembly.

EZI-Deploy™ is a fully automatic hose declutching system to safely handle hose reels with minimal drag resistance. 

Despite the ease of having a motor that rewinds the reel for you, retrieving the hose and overcoming the added load of the motor requires a great effort. 

Reel Tech has removed this problem by engineering a clutch to disengage the motor, and thus ease the deploy of your hose through the Ezi-Deploy technology. These clutches are capable to be remotely installed or factory fitted to help your reeling application.


No levers, buttons, or electronics required. Just pull and go!

EZI-Deploy is a critical add-on for longer hose lengths and larger 1”, 11/2” and 2” hoses and can easily retrofit to existing reels. It’s a clutch system that offers smooth reel operation to minimise operator injuries and reduce excessive force that can prematurely damage equipment.

As an innovation and technology leader, Reel Tech holds a range of patents that aim to facilitate hose and cable handling while increasing safety in the workplace.
