Great for chords, rope, and hose.

Very useful for storing cords and hoses. Be careful not to drop them. I use a large size on my 50 foot 3/8" air hose and when I tossed it in the back of my pickup, the black ratchet part snapped off at the next to last notch. It is still useable because I can still get the whole 50 foot hose in it using the last notch. As another reviewer said, I found the spring closing to be aggravating. I have 10 or more of the various sizes and as soon as I get then I take them apart and remove the spring. Getting the spring out of the small ones is easy. Remove the hinge screw, the spring drops out, then re-assemble. The med. and large have a cap over the screw that is a challenge to remove. I chew the cap up pretty good so I don't even bother to put it back on. Now, on all mine, I push the release and it drops open. On the large ones with heavy hose, I support the weight before releasing the latch. I have used these for several years and only broke the one large one. But even broken I use it almost daily. Oh, and btw this listing is for the small clamp, NOT the medium. Making a bit oversize loop on my 100 foot, 14 gage extension cord, I can get it in this small clamp. .
