Northern Industrial Tools Retractable Cord Reel - Trouble Light
Good choice for the money
The spring is good, the cord is fairly heavy duty and all in all it is a good product. The one thing I didn't expect is that the yellow paint on the cord rubs off on everything. Including your hands or anything that comes in contact with it. Kind of a nuisance because it comes off really easy and gets on everything.

Strong return & well built
Bought 1 and then bought another. Well built. Hung them off the ceiling. Great for an extension cord or light just where you want it. Purchased to replace a cheaper unit that was failing. This is a much nicer unit by far.

Performs well for the price
Wanted a drop light to use in my garage that could be mounted within easy reach from both stalls. This unit does the job and then some. Very pleased so far.

Great trouble light
very well made, should last a long time. I installed this in our garage for extra lighting in those hard to see spots.

product appears very well made; much heavier & more industrial-grade than one it replaced. mounted this product on wall of garage. 30 ft retractable cord covers entire garage and out into driveway. extremely heavy-duty. ordered on-line and picked up at store (Woodruff Rd-Greenville) where customer service was outstanding!

Northern Industrial Retractable Cord Reel - Troubl
This light was installed from my garage ceiling. Installed in 5 minutes and made a quick in the stop ball above the retractable light housing. The product is sturdy,built well, and easy to use. Make sure youuse a light bulb that can handle being knocked around.
Would recommended to any garage do-it-yourself guys or gals. Even has a power reset button prior to the power outlet.

cord reel/light works
Use the built in receptacle more than the light. Had this about a month and works well in my shop. Consider the cord length if you are in a commercial shop.

I purchased this trouble light to replace one that had broken. This light is much superior to the old one because the cord is heavier and the retraction mechanism is stronger and has more positive stops. It is very easy to use, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs a retractable light in their shop or garage.
