|The unit's basket holds up to 75-feet of 12/3 cord, 100-feet of 14/3 cord, or up to 150-feet of 16/3 cord. Simply plug your tool into the cord end, and as you walk to your work area the cord follows. When you're done, press the rewind lever, turn the handle, and your extension cord is stored neatly for future use. And it's quick, too--the Wonder Winder pulls in 100 feet of cord in about 30 seconds. |

It's heavily made, and yes... it's a lot of plastic, but it's thick plastic and doesn't have a cheap feel to it at all.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it does protrude a long way from the wall. For me, this is no big deal... but if I were using it in a garage where I had to walk by it a lot, it would definitely be in the way.
Overall, it works as advertised, it's well-made, and adds to the safety of your work environment by keeping the cord off the floor. Plus, when the cord's not getting stepped on all the time, it doesn't get that coating of dust and grime that sometimes appears on cords that stay on the floor.
1) Plastic is wearing at the cord output mouth. My cord is not always coming stratight into the front; usually it is on the side. The friction from this is wearing at the plastic (and probably my cord too). Only time will tell if this becomes a bigger problem. Seems they could have avoided this by rounding off the molding of the mouth.
2) The unit extends out for the wall a good distance. Would like to have a swivel option to swing it out of the way. This would also improve #1.
3) The all-plastic construction worries me. It has held up for 3 months, but I am curious to see how it is working in a year from now. It is pretty sturdy plastic, but still plastic.
4) At nearly $27, someone is making a good profit on these things. Unless they were able to meet my #1 - #3 improvements, I feel this would be more appropriately priced at $19.99.
I bought the winder for 100 feet electric cord I use to power a Toro power shovel. Last winter when I was just coming back from back surgery dealing with the cord was harder on my back then pushing the power shovel. I needed to find a better solution than winding it around my elbow. This crank is likely to take me 10 minutes to wind the cord into the net, but for me it is worth it because even though it is not as easy as advertised it is still easier on my back than winding it around my elbow. And once cord is in the net it is neater than the loose bundle that I create by coiling it around my arm.
I am attaching several photos to the customer photos for this product (visible if you click on customer photos under the stock photo).
The winder came in 8 parts (see photo 2) and a long sheet of instructions. It was fairly easy to assemble and install. I am not very handy yet it took me only about 15 minutes. The instructions for the assembly and operation were clear. The unit protrudes 11 inches from the wall, plus it is installed onto a mount which is 1.5 inches. So you need a total clearance of 12.5 inches. The width of the unit is 2.5 inches. Photo #1 shows the mounted winder.
The mount has 4 mounting holes.Read more ›
You find this kind of device in catalogs that are full of gadgets that appear to cleverly solve some niche problem, but if you ever buy them you find that they don't really improve your life.
This isn't one of them. It works, pretty much, and it's a heck of a lot easier than a more conventional cord winder. A couple of times I have had problems winding a cord that was wet and so slippery, but other than that it winds the cord up pretty fast, and rather to my surprise the cord has always fed out without tangling.
Mounting is a little tricky because you want to get the device upright, but it twists as you attach the device to the mounting bracket so it's hard to find the exact right orientation for the mounting bracket.
Occasionally when it's fully extended the cord gets detached from the bottom of the bag or gets aligned straight through the hole, and so it needs a bit of help to get started winding.
I want another one so that I can keep one in the garage and one on the back porch.

Still the best winder I've found.
