Ordered two of these on sale for use in barn/shop. Have not installed them yet but I have had a 40' one in the garage for several years with excellent results. Took a few uses to "loosen up" and retract all the way on the first try. I bought two more, what else can I say?
Seems to be a nice design not sure of the ability to hold up to hard use for a long time since we've just now installed it. It is light weight and retracts easily at time of purchase so time will have to tell of its ability to hold up.
It would of been helpful if the exterior case would of been a little bigger. When you have the cord extended and want to reel it in, one has to feed the cord back in onto the storage reel so it goes back in a row on the reel.
If you just release it and let the reel roll up the cord, it will not go on even and then the reel will bind with the cord and the outer case of the reel.
Good reel and cord, just that one has to be careful and slow in feeding the cord back on the reel evenly as not to interfere with the outer case.

Just purchased this Cord reel, so not sure of the longevity of it but seems to work well and works smooth. Installed in our shop and has plenty of cord to reach way outside when needing it for outside use, Much better then having cords all over and getting tangled up with other things. The reel keeps it all contained and organized and don't have to search for a cord always in the same place, good product
A very decent wire real for the money. Wire length as well as heaver 12 gauge wire will run anything I need to run with no voltage drop as with ones with 16 gauge wire. It came to me as promised and it went into it final location with no issues. The ratchet on the reel winds the electrical cable with no issues
Had it up one week. So far so good. The 65 ft length reaches almost anywhere in my shop. The breaker works like it should, i locked up my chop saw and the breaker tripped out. Only problem was its mounted 12 feet off the ground so i have to get ladder to reset the breaker!!
We installed the product and check it out that it pull our and release (perfect), but we did not check the unit actually working. A week later we tried to plug in a vacuum and it did not work...hit reset button never worked.
