Handy Hose Holder
Avoid knots and tangles in an air hose by clamping a metal strut channel to the handle of your air compressor.
Even when properly wound up, my air hose always seems to transform into a bundle of knots every time I need it for a new job. To prevent frustration, I clamped a length of metal strut channel to the handle of my air compressor. Now, not only does my hose stay tangle-free, but it’s always right there where I need it. Just make sure to cover the sharp ends with duct tape or some other sort of bumper. This homemade hose holder could also work great for pressure washers.
