ReelWorks Retractable Cord Reel - 40Ft., 12/3 SJT Cord
The cord reel is a very handy item to have, especially when you have to run an extension outside of your garage. It saves time and aggravation in having to get an extension cord, unwind it, plug it in, rewind it , and put it away. All you have to do is pull it out, lock it in place , use it, and let it rewind by itself.

A little disappointed
The one problem that I have noticed is that when rewinding the cord, if you do not make sure that the cord is moving back and forth on the rewinding wheel, it will stay in one place and stop the rewinding because the cord is to full in one spot. Then again it could just be the person doing it which is me and I just haven't practiced with it enough. Other than that I really like it. It's a handy gadget.

Retractable Cord Reel
Very heavy duty and extends well. I hung in my garage ceiling. The only negative comment about this product is it does not always retract fully on the first try. It takes multiple pull attempts and just the right speed and release to get it to pull all the cord back in the reel.

Just what I needed
I've been debating this purchase for a long time. Wish I had not waited. Product works great. You do occasionally have to help the cord feed evenly into the reel, and you can't just "snap and release" and expect it to feed into reel. If you treat it with a little care though, it works great. Get it on sale and use your coupons and it's an unbeatable deal.

Really Good, But...
It's just as handy as I thought it would be. I only wish it was manufactured with better materials. I expected it to be made of plastic, of course, but I just wish it was a better quality plastic. Hope it's durable enough to stand the test of time.

retractable elect reel
I now have three of these in my shop.. They have been very dependable for the last two years.. No problems with the retractable mech. and some of the other reels I have had in the past do not last long before shorting out or the retractable mech breaks. This system has proven out and we use these time and time again each and every day in our business. The cord is heavy duty and the three way on the end is also heavy duty with ground plugs.. When using the three way, we do not trip the built in circuit breaker.. other units will not allow you to plug in three tools at a time without tripping the breaker..Purchase this with confidence.

Retractable Cord Reel
Use of this product is really self explanatory. It functions perfectly and as advertised. It makes all of the chores that I previously had to rig up an extension cord in my garage to accomplish, infinitely simpler to get done. A real time saver!

ReelWorks Retratable Cord Reel
I have both the 40ft reel and the 65ft reel the 65ft reel works like it should and has plenty of room for the cord. The 40ft reel does not have enough room in the case for the cord to wind properly. You need to move the cord right and left to get it wound without binding inside the case, I would rather spend more money for the one that works.

I recently purchased a home with a nice sized shop. This was one of my first purchases and although early on I am impressed with the cord reel. Last weekend I completed a project with my MIG welder and needed to get the unit closer to the work. I utilized the new cord reel and was surprised that it was able to handle both the welder and a grinder without tripping the reset. Very happy with this purchase.

Didn't last 6mos in my shop
We mounted this in our shop so we could keep extension cords out of the way when not in use. It worked pretty well for about 6 months. It doesn't retract all that well but it finally just stopped working. The circuit breaker button does nothing. So now it's just a decoration on the wall.
