expired BOGOF (2-for-1) HOSELINK Premium Ned Kelly Starter Kit + FREE SHIPPING ($37.90)

2240

Other Offers including a Hose available as well

Hello Ozbargainers,

We were curious to see what all this Click Frenzy fuss was about, so we thought we would put our most popular garden hose connection set on sale.

This would be the perfect Christmas gift for one or two gardeners in your life!

Great stocking stuffer on the off chance that you know an adult gardener who still gets a stocking from Santa. We're not judging!

If you're curious to see what HOSELINK is all about, I recommend checking out the following 30 second clip:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-E0lggs1q8&feature=c4-overv...

Each set includes everything needed to connect both ends of the hose and is guaranteed to never burst-off, even in areas with exceptionally high water pressure (Sydney). They fit all standard garden hoses (12mm ID), any standard tap (3/4 or 1 inch) and work with all existing watering accessories.

The fittings are exceptionally durable, leak-free and feature a 3-year warranty. That said, we would expect them to last a lot longer than that due to the fact that they are made from nylon which is much denser than the ABS plastic commonly used. This means they don't break down in UV like ABS and no moving parts means they don't wear out over time. In fact, we have many customers who purchased our hose fittings when they first came out 10 years ago and continue to use the same set, transplanting them from hose to hose.

The included all-metal spray gun is heavy duty and designed to be serviced (threads pre-tapped to allow for disassembly & maintenance) should it clog up over time (commonly due to calcification and small lizards getting into the hose).

"What about brass?" you ask! Brass is great, and we use it in many of our connections (from/to pressure washers, tap-splitters, etc). Unfortunately, we have found (and our customers commonly report) that the typical brass quick-connect design still bursts off. This is due to the small grabbers inside being made of plastic and the quick connect design being generally flawed. The Hoselink Bayonet connection simply will not come apart (as demonstrated in the commercial where we tow a truck with the hose and fittings). In addition, brass can calcify over time, where nylon typically does not.

If you have any questions, please post below and I will be quick to respond.

Cheers,
Beau

P.S. Yes, I know the sale says 50% off and that it really is a "Buy One Get One Free" (BOGOF), but that's how it was suggested we phrase it for the purposes of click frenzy. Crazy marketing boffins, why can't we just call it what it is?!

EDIT: I just noticed there has been much more interest in our second offer which is 30% off a hose, starter kit and hose hanger - all for $66.45 (FREE DELIVERY). Click the link for details.

EDIT 2: Ozbargainers are asking for a longer hose without a bracket - I recommend seeing the following hose which is on sale and is fantastic:

EDIT 3: This is OzBargain insanity! Thanks for all the great feedback and I promise to get you guys something good in the future exclusive to OzBargain

YET ANOTHER EDIT: I've opened the offers up for a little extra time to give any stragglers a chance to pick it up. That said, when I get into the office this morning, we may need to put a stop to this OzBargain madness. It's good madness, but madness none the less!

      As far as I know, the sale will end at 7pm tonight, when click frenzy is over.

      I will update the post if it gets extended, but it being "Click-Frenzy", I'm not sure that it will.

    Hi rep, I have placed an order earlier this morning, the status says it is being prepared for dispatch.

      Sorry, it's too late. The order is packed and likely out the door already.

      It is free shipping on orders over $30, though, if that's of any help.

      Otherwise, shipping is a flat rate $6.95.

      Thanks for your purchase!

    Went looking for independent reviews of the 35m hose - couldn't find much and ended up at this page at a rival store asserting their 'knitted' hoses are superior:

    Hoselink Premium Flex Hose 4844 & Hoselink ULTRA 6 Hose 4835 with braided reinforcing cannot be compared to Hozelock Tricoflex knitted. Nylex Eclipse NTS, Nylex Platinum DCT & Gardena Premium SkinTech are other knitted products available in Australia.

    Any feedback on any of these hoses? My Hoselink fittings are certainly superior to my previous ones which happened to be Hozelock - wonder if the same holds true for the hoses.

    • +2 votes

      That is no doubt a nice hose, although expensive. I wonder how they handle their 20 year warranty.

      The Ultra 6 is a knitted "technical" hose similar to the one you have mentioned. Our other hoses (classic, superflex) are a more traditional design - quality rubber hose.

      The Ultra 6 excels in being light and easy to work with, while having very good kink and tangle resistance. In addition, we find it to be the best hose to be left in direct sunlight as it doesn't heat up the same way as the denser, rubber hoses.

      It's made in Italy instead of France like the Hozelock.

      Our other hoses are heavier, virgin rubber hoses. They are like the ones that used to be sold in shops, before everyone moved to a lighter, reground rubber. As a result, our rubber hoses are much better for kink resistance than anything commonly available. And, if a king were to occur, it would not develop a "memory" at that spot like cheaper rubber would.

      There's no such thing as a kink-proof hose.

      The Hozelock is no doubt a pleasure to work with, but I think the Ultra 6 would be quite similar. Both would be great for ease of use and long life in harsh conditions.

      Our rubber hoses are much heavier, but offer better abrasion resistance and kink resistance.

      I'm sure that most would be very happy with any of these hoses as they are all vastly superiour to what you will commonly find in a hardware store at a similar price.

      I hope that helps!

  •  

    How much for the 18m Hose package without the hanger?

    •  

      Sorry, but due to the volume we are set up to send out these packages as is and cannot break them apart. That's part of the reason we can offer this price.

      If you don't need a hanger, may I suggest the BOGOF Starter kit special and the 35m Ultra 6 hose. You could then chop the hose in half and have two complete sets.

      Just a thought. Hope it helps!

  •  

    I just spoke to you guys about the hose reels - look like great quality. You mentioned an offer of free extras with every reel. What was that? Also, is the hose included with the reel the same as the ones on special today?
    Thanks.

    •  

      I think the free extras is a general term that encompasses the free shipping, the upgraded spray gun (many reels only come with a basic twist sprayer), the swivel connector (very useful to prevent kinks and tangles) and the blaster sprayer (seriously, the most powerful long-distance spray available).

      Unfortunately, it's not easy for us to simply throw extra things in as they are boxed up as a complete package and are going out the door so quick at the moment, that we are worried about selling out before Christmas.

      Sorry I can't do more at the moment. It is unlikely we will have any sales on our reels in the foreseeable future. If we do, I will be sure to post it on here first.

      • +1 vote

        That's fine - you're doing enough. They are a great price at present with the 'extras'. But one question - I don't see an end date on this price. When does this special price on the hose reels finish, or is it when sold out?

  •  

    Damn! I've been waiting for an auto rewind reel to go on special for ages (they're all ridiculously over priced in my opinion, and Bunnings never drop their prices on them <decent ones that is>). Must admit my Grandparent's have hoselink and love it. No chance of a little "Auto Reel deal" to add to the frenzy?

    Well done on the contribution though and a wonderful aussie invention!

    •  

      If you click on them, they have up to 29% off. Can't remember which one it was. The 30m was 25% off.

    •  

      I completely understand your interest in a hose reel special - they are fantastic.

      Unfortunately, we are having trouble keeping stock as it is and have sold out periodically so far this season.

      Part of the reason the reels are so expensive is due to the quality of the materials used (heavy-duty spring, stainless steel hardware, Highly UV stabilized casing) , the enormous size (the new 30m is a beast), and every reel is tested before it leaves the factory.

      If an when we can have a hose reel sale, I'll ensure it is posted here first.

      Thanks for the feedback!

  • +1 vote

    Bought a set (nice presents) and an auto winder. I couldn't see a guarantee for the auto winder anywhere. I read here that someone's lasted 6 months. I hope that's not going to be the case!

    • +2 votes

      That will absolutely not be the case. The warranty on the reel is 2 years, but if it is mounted correctly and not abused by pets, kids, or tradies (the three main threats to hose reels), I would expect it to last many, many years.

      The person who posted earlier likely received his about 3 years ago and since that time we have made many, many improvements to the retractable reels.

      If for any reason, at any time, the reel does not perform as it should, please don't hesitate to call us and we will sort it out straight away. Even if you're out of warranty, we ask that you contact us. We've never said "Too bad" to a customer and we always look for a solution.

    • +1 vote

      Hey, that's not a problem, but I wouldn't advocate using the click on adapter unless you absolutely have to.

      The only time this is typically the case is when you want to use spray fertilizer bottles where the click on nub is moulded into the bottle itself.

      Most other accessories can have this click-on nub unscrewed, so you can screw one of our accessory connectors directly in.

      The click-on is not guaranteed to never burst off or leak.

      Thanks for your purchase!

      • +1 vote

        Thanks
        Yes, the plan is that its only going to be used for one of our sprinklers and also a spray fertilizer/chemical bottle.

        •  

          Have you checked your sprinkler to see if the existing fitting can be unscrewed?

          Also, there is a way to put one of our hose connectors onto a short length of hose, slide the open end of the hose over the click-on nub, and then use a hose clamp to secure the hose down from the outside. It is a little bit of extra work, but This way, you will never get a burst off or leak - ever.

          This might be useful if you are using the sprinkler often at high pressure and find the click-on adapter doesn't cut it.

          Hope that helps!

      Yes Rep, I have also PM'ed a question to add two adapters to my order before it ships. To be honest I didn't realise I'd need those adapters and I do, to feed water to my camper connector …

    Hi Rep,

    The 18M hose pack you're running a special on - if I want to move that between two taps what's the cheapest way of having the other tap ready to accept the connection (ie. you only really need the part that attaches to the tap)?

    Also, what time is the special running until?

    Cheers.

    •  

      All you would need is an extra tap connector (ITEM 2320).

      The sale is part of click frenzy so is expires tonight at 7pm.

      We would leave it open for a little extra time to give stragglers a chance to get it.

    Hi rep. I just bought the hose and fittings package. Whats the difference between your superflex hose and other non-kink hoses in the market? Also those rechargeable torches look pretty good…

    •  

      The torches are fantastic.
      I compared it to the cheap ozbargain Cree torch with Li-Ion battery and charger I got delivered for about ~$12 six months ago (the one with the zoom feature). The cheap one was awesome, but the battery died in less than an hour of continuous use after being charged.

      Ours delivered a bit stronger beam, but continued to work day in and day out for months on a single charge when walking the dog in the morning. It is incredible.

      Just goes to show that the most important and expensive part of these torches is the battery - and ours is fantastic.

      Regarding the superflex hose, the key difference that separates it from the rest on the market is the quality of the rubber used. It is very difficult to kink, but in the off chance that you do, it won't form a memory at that spot. And although it only features an 8 year warranty compared to some others with a 20 year warranty - it is a warranty that we stand behind with as little fuss as possible. We never ask you for a receipt and in many cases a warranty issue can be solved by emailing us a picture of the issue.

      This is a heavy-duty hose that remains pliable year round and offers fantastic abrasion resistance. Simply put, most customers report it to be the best hose they have ever used.

      Take a look at the reviews:

  • +1 vote

    Ok one thing that annoys me the most is the hose always twists and stops the flow while watering…does the Hoselink's hose do that?

    • +1 vote

      This is what we in the industry like to call a "kink" in the hose.

      Although no hose is kink-proof (although some might claim theirs is), our hoses use much higher quality rubber and more of it. As a result, the hoses are little thicker and heavier than you might be used to, but they are tough and much harder to kink, tangle, pinch, puncture, whatever. The only drawback is that they are a little heavier (200 grams per metre for the Superflex).

      If you would like something lighter, I recommend the 35m Ultra 6 that is on sale - it is a newer style of hose that uses 6 layers and levels of braiding to deliver great kink resistance at a much lower weight (143 grams per metre).

      Hope that helps!

  •  

    also, any chance you guys would have the auto rewind 18m hose on special?

    •  

      No special on hose reels at the moment - having trouble keeping them in stock as it is!

      But, if we do, we will post on OzBargain first.

      Also, please note that the hose reels come in 5m increments ranging 10m to 30m.

    Seriously - this is good stuff. I found you over 2 years ago, and I've been recommending you to all my friends. I'm glad to see you're doing so well and so many others like your stuff.

    Had to laugh

    I added a new hand trowel to my Ozbargain order and when I checked my email confirmation, it said "Garden Trowell". I was about to jump on the email and say "your products may be good, but you really need to hire people who can spell" - then I checked the dictionary and found "Trowel - from Middle English trowell, from Old French truele, from Late Latin truella, diminutive of Latin trua, ladle"

    Now I don't know whether to criticise Hoselink for bad spelling, or to congratulate them for their knowledge of Middle English !
