SOME HAVE ASKED: “WHY MOUNT YOUR HOSE REEL ON THE CEILING,” AND “IS IT EASY TO MOUNT TO THE CEILING?”

TWO QUICK ANSWERS TO THE FIRST QUESTION:  SAFETYCONVENIENCE.

ONE QUICK ANSWER TO THE SECOND QUESTION:  YES.

REGARDING SAFETY, JUST THINK OF HOW MANY TIMES, WHEN YOUR OXYGEN TUBING HAS BEEN SPRAWLED OUT ACROSS THE FLOOR, IT HAS NOT BEEN SEEN BY SOMEBODY, OR HAS BEEN PINCHED OFF UNKNOWLINGLY BY A CHAIR LEG OR OTHER OBSTACLES ON THE FLOOR.  WHEN DISTRIBUTION OF YOUR TUBING IS FROM THE CEILING, THESE SITUATIONS ARE VIRTUALLY AVOIDED.

REGARDING CONVENIENCE, JUST IMAGINE THE TIMES YOUR TUBING HAS BEEN CAUGHT BY A PIECE OF FURNITURE OR A CABINET EDGE WHEN YOU ARE GATHERING IT UP FROM THE FLOOR OR WHEN YOU ARE MOVING FROM ONE LOCATION TO ANOTHER.  JUST REMEMBER THE TIMES YOU HAVE SPENT UNTYING THE KNOTS IN YOUR GATHERED-UP TUBING, OR STRAIGHTENING IT OUT SO THAT YOU CAN GO TO ANOTHER SPOT IN YOUR HOME.  WHEN THE DISTRIBUTION AND REWINDING OF THE TUBING IS FROM THE CEILING, THESE SITUATIONS ARE VIRTUALLY AVOIDED. 

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING A HOSE REEL THAT SITS ON THE FLOOR, JUST TRY A LITTLE THOUGHT EXPERIMENT BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHICH IS BEST:

          IMAGINE THE BEST LOCATION TO PLACE A HOSE REEL ON THE FLOOR IN YOUR HOME AND ALSO IMAGINE THE BEST LOCATION TO PLACE YOUR HOSE REEL ON THE CEILING.  THEN IMAGINE YOURSELF TRAVELING FROM ONE PLACE TO ANOTHER IN YOUR HOME WHILE PULLING ALONG YOUR OXYGEN TUBING.  MOST LIKELY, YOU WILL DISCOVER WHAT ALL OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE DISCOVERED:  WHEN THE DISPENSING AND REWINDING OF THE TUBING IS FROM THE CEILING, THE TUBING ENCOUNTERS FEWER OBSTACLES AND YOUR LIFE IS LESS IMPACTED THAN IF THE TUBING WERE DISTRIBUTED FROM NEAR THE FLOOR.

REGARDING EASE OF INSTALLATION, WE HAVE MADE THE INSTALLATION VERY QUICK AND SIMPLE BY DESIGNING A LIGHT-WEIGHT FRAME THAT IS MOUNTED FIRST TO THE CEILING VIA FOUR SCREWS.  THE CEILING HOSE REEL IS THEN EASILY CLIPPED INTO THE FRAME USING FOUR SPINNING CLIPS.  SEE TAB LABELED “INSTALL” FOR MORE.

THESE ARE THE REASONS OUR CEILING HOSE REEL IS MOUNTED ON THE CEILING.
