Step 5: hose reel mounting
mounting the hose reel: spring clamps or "C" clamps can be used to attach the aluminum plate and square it up in position and then just drill 4 holes through everything or you could measure up and drill seperately. Whatever works the best for you. I secured with 1/4-20s, lock washers, and nuts.Then, I held the reel into position, placed a small torpedo level on it and marked 4 holes to be drilled and mounted the reel to the plate with supplied hardware. The hose was then wrapped around the left side of the handtruck and connected to the compressor.
