Hose Sliders are a simple and simply brilliant temporary sign solution that easily adds another advertising point at your pumps. If you own or operate a fuel pump station or c-store, I don’t need to even stress the importance of drawing customers from the pumps into the store… you already know! Innovative sign options like hose sliders will easily put your current sales & promotions directly in front of customers pumping fuel at a price that won’t deplete your marketing budget.
There are different variations of fuel pump “hose talkers” or “hose promoters”, and while we offer a variety of them in this post, we are taking a quick look at a specific type that we like to call Hose Sliders. Read on to learn how and why this simple sign solution can change your at-the-pump advertising for the better.

How They Work
Hose Sliders are made using a single piece of semi rigid styrene that you attach to a fuel pump hose (similar to how you would hang a permit sign from a review mirror but at the top and bottom of the sign).
Because these signs are made from a single piece of plastic, there is no assembly needed, as well as no components that can break down or fall apart. This also allows us to offer these signs at a very low price-point, which makes them the perfect pump sign.
Installing or removing a Hose Slider takes only a matter of seconds. If you want to move the sign position on the hose, simply unhook 1 end and slide the sign to your desired location. Since there is no glue or tight clamps, when you remove a Hose Slider it leaves no trace that it was ever there.
Why They Work
Hose Sliders work by getting your advertisements directly in front of customers pumping fuel, either while grabbing the hose nozzle or when processing payment. When positioned correctly, Hose Sliders WILL be noticed by your customers pumping fuel.
Endless Design Options
Hose Sliders can be cut into endless shapes, giving you the flexibility to find an option that works best for your pumps or sign design. We can also match the shape of the product being advertised for a really classy look. Our CNC, die-cut capabilities at Wilde Signs are top of the line, giving us the ability to cut any shape you can dream up.
