Originally I purchased this and thought it was fantastic. Retraction worked well, locked out, and was all around handy to have. So much so that I purchased one for my brother.

Here we are a year and half later. I used the cord about once every couple months mostly for drop lights and things of that sort. The end of the cord rarely came in contact with anything since it was hanging from the ceiling i.e. the rest of the cord including end looks brand new. Tonight I was using it and noticed some smells from inside the garage and couldn't locate it until I went to retract the cord and noticed smoke. I pulled the cord the rest of the way out to find that the reel had somehow worn through the coating and you know what happened next. I took pictures to show that this part of the cord could never have contacted the ground and to show the damage to the cord. BUYER BEWARE!!!!

Mounted to a a roof joist, you'll wonder how you ever survived without one. Mine plugs into the same outlet as my garage door opener and is used all the time for the electric leaf blower, handheld saws, drills, etc. etc. etc.

Very good design and function - I'd rank it as FIVE Stars but after a couple of years one of the three outlets got flaky. I have to really make sure that the plug is inserted firmly, and even then sometimes the power cuts out. I write it up to iffy quality, although it's probably been run over at least once.

I then knock it down another star because with 16 gauge wire it's really only suited to medium / lighter weight applications (10A) Running a shop vac and table saw simultaneously on this is not a good idea - you notice a definite drop in current and the wire does get warm enough to notice. I'm sure this is higher than the 10A it's rated for, however, so it's not something you should be doing anyways.

There are a couple of alternatives which are 12 gauge wire which gives you 15A capacity. Some of these are even longer. I'm planning to get the Grizzly, which is a little more but also 10' longer and 12AWG/15A...

Update: I now have the Grizzly 12 GA which I use for a light duty table saw, router, etc. I still use this for light duty items, again noting that the 10A recommendation means you shouldn't use this for more than 1250 watt items.

BLUF: There is a upgraded/improved version out there from the same company. The upgraded version is even cheaper (see details below and pictures for comparison)

I owned this retractable reel for the last 3 yrs and had no major issues until today (other than the occasional inability to lock the cord in place). I made a mistake and plugged in high amp/draw unit (log splitter) and this caused the internal fuse to blow. The fatal flaw is that once the built in 10AMP fuse is blown then there isn't any way to reset it. Therefore, this unit will not work and just end up being an expensive paperweight.

I called the manufacturer and confirmed that the fuse cant reset or replaced. Instead, the company recommend the

"Bayco CA-800B2." The CA-800B2 is 99% identical to the SL-800 but it has a built in 10amp w/ Circuit Breaker. This integrated circuit breaker will allow you to reset a blown fuse.

The CA-800B2 is a no brainer since it cost LESS than the SL-800. The CA-800B2 cost $41.99 (as of 18JAN2015) and the SL-800L cost $43.99 ((as of 18JAN2015) don't know why the CA-800B2 isn't more popular.

So in summary, this product is great when it works but don't use any high draw/demand power unit that will blow the internal fuse. If you do then the unit will no longer work.

I hope my assessment helps.

First of all, since I planned on hanging this reel, I purchased this item based on the fact that it looked like it had a nice sturdy ring to hang the cord reel from (I made the mistake of ASSUMING that the black ring depicted was ATTACHED to the bracket that held the reel. WRONG!!!!! It didn't have a ring...unless the cheap, wire item that resembled the wire rings car repair people use to attach your key and a ticket number to was supposed to be used for. I tried to "make it work" and after several attempts, and a broken nail (it's girl thing LOL) I just thought "forget about it" and jerry rigged something so I could at least be fair and try it out.

When an item is advertised to be 30 feet, well...call me picky, but I EXPECT it to be 30 feet! When I pulled the cord completely out, I thought it looked short, so I grabbed a tape measure and had my son hold the reel and one end of the tape measure, and sure enough, it was 25 feet. If you include the reel and the bit of cord on the other side, it was 28 feet. Five feet doesn't sound like much, but I really needed thirty feet, and I didn't want to lug a 50' reel (hmmm, the 50' reel might have ended up being 42', so maybe I should have considered that LOL)

All in all, I was very disappointed with the product and returned it immediately.

Last year I moved into a new house and my woodshop now exists in a nice one car garage. The only downside to my new shop (other than its small size) is that the previous owners did not install many outlets. Before I had the time to do so myself, I came across this retractable cord reel. I hung it from the ceiling, dead center just next to the garage door opener (they can thus share the same outlet), and the 30' length easily reaches every corner of my shop. I am sure this length would do equally well in a two car garage too. I especially love the fact that since my main bench and tablesaw are directly below this reel I can quickly run power to either of those without having any cords tripping me at floor level.

I have found the construction of this reel to be top notch - the steel housing will last forever and the winding/retracting mechanism inside is very robust. I predict this to be a lifetime tool, never to need replacing.

I highly recommend this item, especially to those whose workshops started out life as a garage!
