Good idea if you have a cheap manual hose reel and you want to improve its functionality when you are trying to pull the hose to the side. It's a good way of taking advantage of long hoses that comes with manual reels with a DIY guided system.
You basically have two kinds of hose reels: The automatic retractable garden hose reel that is self guided back to the reel, but is limited by the length of the hose you can put on them because the spring take up so much space.
