Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MommaNols Iron worker
My husband is an iron worker and the first one lasted years about six to be exact! Time to buy a new one and put the old one on his harness. Cheaper than all the tool stores that have them in stock.

This reel was easy to install and works great in our application. It makes grabbing a piece of wire so much easier being very close and handy.

Klein is best, it holds up to heavier usage. I dont think there is another metal product out there. The others are plastic. The only disadvantage is its heavy on your hip all day. You load a full stone of wire in it by taking off the cover plate. No need to wind wire on, load in a full coil of wire made for this style of despensor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TheCajunPersuasion I use this product every day
Very simple to use, and can easily be placed on a tool belt. To refill with rebar tie wire, you simply unscrew the front face and place your tie wire inside. On the face there are simple instructions as to which direction to turn the face. --> off, <--On. Also this tool is very easy to maintain and lubricate. As a person who builds bridges and has experience needed to state such an opinion; rebar and methods/tools to tie it all together are a must. At this quality for the price; this is my first choice.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by skid Is there really a purpose for this product?
There must be something about this product that I do not understand. None of the advertisements for it justify the price of $45+.
The design of the product does not allow you to simply install a new reel of wire. Instead, you must somehow unwind the entire reel of wire and then use the crank handle to rewind all the wire onto the reel.
Since unwinding the wire is the most time consuming part of the operation, why bother rolling it back up?
I could buy a lot of tie wire with $45

To load a new roll of tie wire, you simply take off the front cover plate, it even has a lable saying "off/on" with arrows pointing in the direction you turn the cover plate.
But alas, like most klein products over the last 10 years, this also isn't made as well as the good ol' days.
