Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Graybeard Buy one, you won't regret it.
I've had one of these for over ten years and it is one of those things that will never leave my garage workshop until I pass away or it falls apart.
All of us have struggled with an extension cord. We've wound them up using our hand and elbow, they become twisted and tangled and generally a pain when you go to use them. I bought this on a lark, never expecting it would turn out to be one of the things I show off the most in my shop. My contractor saw? Nope. My solid oak workbench that I built with my own hands? Nope.
No, I show off my Wonder Winder to anyone with an interest. It's simple to assemble, simple to install and never fails. Bonus: If you need a replacement part(I haven't needed one), the manufacturer doesn't charge an arm and a leg for them.
Also, being made of plastic I never would have imagined it would last as long as it has. It has far exceeded my expectations.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RednexToyz Got it as a joke but love it!
Received this as a gag gift but the joke is on them ... I love it. Mounted touside my garage, I have about 100' of cord in it. Works great! Only time I have a little trouble & the wheel "slips" is if the cord is stiff from cold weather. If the cord is supple, it will work like a champ!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arlygirl GREAT
I've considered getting one of these for years, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money on something I didn't really think would do what it said. I finally went for it, and I'm glad I did. I love this thing, It works great, and I no longer have to spend 10 minutes untangling the cord before each use.
I've only had this a few weeks, and I've already raved about it to everyone I know!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by the2js97 Good Product, but arm gets tired
I received this item a few years ago after seeing it in my brother's garage. The products works good, just like it advertises.
However, after several uses your arm will get tired of winding up 125' of cord. Imagine if you use a heavier guage cord.
Consider the plastice rollup reels instead, they only cost $5-$8.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shauram Good tool for organizing cords or smaller hoses.
I purchased two of these to help organize extensions cords in my shop. I ended up using one for an air hose. These cord reel winders have worked very well. The wind-up feature is not as smooth as I expected, but it does work. I have been happy with their performance and will probably buy more as needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Randy Easy to install and use
I used this product on our club trap shooting range to reel in the control cords. It worked perfect and the members liked the easy retracting handle. It is mounted outdoors on a pole and will be put to the weather test this winter. We'll see how long it will last.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pontoon Bad idea
I bought one of these winders and it does not work well at all. When you hold back to put some pressure on cord it does not wind up mine is going in the garbage this week and putting up a retractable reel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by wahly Glad we found another one.
We had purchased 1 several years ago from a magazine on a United flight. It finally gave out and was so glad that we found them. They are great and couldn't do without it. Just so handy!
