Best cord reel yet
Posted August 22, 2014
I was a little concerned after reading some reviews about the reel having a weak recoil spring. Depending upon how the reel is installed on a wall they may have a point. If mounted with the cord opening on the bottom, the spring doesn't seem as hefty as it should. However, if mounting the reel with the cord opening on the top, the reel works much better as the cord more naturally coils on itself inside the reel due to simple physics and gravity. I have found this to be true with all wall mounted cord reels that I have purchased. For my rating, this is the best reel I have purchased and used. I do wish Rockler offered a couple of color varieties though.
Good Product and Great Service

I bought this cord reel and loved it. Unfortunately the electrical contact wipers inside the unit started throwing sparks and in looking at it I found that they had burned out. I spoke to Rockler about it and they sent me a whole new unit. Great service. Thanks Rockler.

I have wanted a high quality, heavy duty real for years. This one is excellent. I am one of those guys that push it and think that everything will be fine. Thank goodness I have had no trouble thus far. I decided that I should stop chancing things and get the rite tool for the job. I am very happy with this real. It is a bit of insurance for me and well worth it. I do not mind spending money on quality things that I will have the rest of my life.
