Comments about Product: I have two of these holders, and am very happy. I had someone else install them, so I cannot speak to that issue. As to the problem of the coiled hose falling through the holder, I picked up a coco mat intended for a long narrow planter, and put that inside the wrought iron. It holds the hose perfectly, doesn't collect water, doesn't rust, and looks attractive. This is important, as I live in a condo, and the hose is in plain site, both in the front and the back.
Useless Hardware, No Instructions
Comments about Product: As someone else pointed out (but not yet corrected by Plow and Hearth), the hardware is useless for mounting this on a shed wall, as they are toggle bolts for a 1" thick wall.
Haven't tried mounting it yet (gotta go to the hardware store), but I expect I will also discover that the coils fall through if the hose has water in it. The photo is misleading.
Still, better than a flower pot to store the hose in--always nasty little black widows hiding out in there.

Less Than Perfect
Comments about Product: This a very attractive hose holder but, as some other reviewers have pointed out, the average coil hose falls through the slots. I'm still able to lay the hose it this holder but it takes some time to get it right. Still better than letting it dangle to the ground. I recommend this product with the warning of the hose size issues.
Attractive but not functional
Comments about Product: The wrought iron is solid, but not too heavy and is a very attractive piece, but it does not hold a coiled hose very well as the hose slips through the spaces. Also the basket did not come with mounting instructions.
Hose Basket for curly hoses.
Comments about Product: The hose basket I purchased is perfect for what I needed. It is attractive and as I said durable. I use it for my curly hose on the back patio and the basket keeps the hose off the ground and neatly curled up for the next time.
