Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Displeased This is not the cord storage solution you're looking for.
This will not fit a 100ft 14/3 electrical cord without great effort in maintaining a very snug wrapping. The idea seems good but when you're wrapping the cord you have to realize that this case wants to stay closed and winding it up requires that the cord pry open the case as it goes around. This adds a significant amount of resistance. If you use your extension cord once or twice a year then this product might be good for you but if you're looking for something that is efficient and not just neatly stored, look elsewhere. At the very least, buy the larger size and save yourself the headache of precision winding your cord.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by JT14344 Works as advertised
I like that the cord organizer winder has 2 compartments for each end so that unwinding one end either closer to the outlet or the air compressor is much easier than if you are trying to unwind and find one end.
It's nice and compact so that you can hang it or keep it in a drawer.
I hope it last.

I love simple products, and this product is as simple as one can be. With no moving parts, I am confident this product will last me a long time. Most importantly it is incredibly easy to use. My least favorite part about doing yard work around the house was having to untangle my 100 foot long extension cord. This cord organizer has completely solved that problem. Even better, it neatly stores my extension cord on my shelf. Even my wife was impressed with this purchase after she saw how it kept my extension cord nice and tidy. I know some people complained about how to "install" your extension cord, but it was actually really easy if you read the instructions. In fact, it took me longer to untangle my extension cord than it did to "install" it in this organizer. This product is a must for anyone with a 50 foot plus extension cord. The only problem is that they dont sell it in the stores, you have to buy it online.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by barnabus great product
we have bought 6 of these and are going to get more of these Another 4. They save room and keep the cord in shape. Just keep putting more cords in them. Do not know what we would do with out them
