Rated 4 out of 5Â by WILL266 Almost perfect!
I have at least 20 of the XL for my 100's and a dozen of the standard for my 50's, and we will never go back to hand wrapping cords again. Effort to wind them is about the same as by doing 6 foot loops manually, but the unrolling and storage is the best.
Only issue I have had with about several is that the center rubber ring (were you put your hand while winding) tends to fall off - perhaps since I bought them all at one time, was a bad gluing batch.
Whole heartedly recommend however, in spite of this one issue.
When winding (to get the ease of unroll feature) you must wrap one side counter clockwise when facing the shell, and the other side clock wise. This allows them to unspool together. I have gone to using a permanent marker to guide my employees on proper winding.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HVACServiceman FREAKING AWESOME!
I read all the reviews before buying this, and I really want to clarify... Anyone complaining about the strain of wrapping them doesn't use cords for a living at all. And anyone complaining about having a hard time with the cord while using this organizer doesn't know how to read directions! I am a heating and a/c service technician. There are more than several times a week I have to use either my 100' or 50' extension cord. No matter how carefully you wrapped them and put them away, there's always a snag or some tangle! NEVER AGAIN! It's really just so easy to use them and put them away. It takes me 2 minutes to wrap them and put them away; and it's as easy as plug it and pull it for set up! What a time saver not to mention the aggravation it doesn't cause me when cleaning up a job site late at night or in the hot summer sun. VERY WELL DONE!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Fleebus Great Product--Wish I had found these items years ago.
I purchased a Cord Pro XL for my 100 ft. 12/3 extension cord (actually, it will handle 150 ft. of 12/3). I am so pleased with the effective simplicity of the design (no moving parts to break), and ease of use. I have limited use of one arm due to a stroke. I had no problem using this device. I am going to buy additional Cord Pros to handle air compressor hoses and smaller extension cords. I highly recommend this product. I ordered it online and picked up at the store. Took two days. Excellent service.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JohnG Next best thing to a cordless extension cord.
I'm a house rehabber and have used these for about 10 years (3). They use to be hard to find.There are a lot of options for storing cords, but they either fall way short or are overly complicated (crank wheels). If you're the kind of guy who just uses your elbow to hand to wind a cord, this basically works the same way, but inside a shell. You do it 1/2 at a time and then it unwinds fast without twisting or knotting. I haven't used them for hoses though, just cords but I don't see how they would be any different.
