Wonder Winder® Extension Cord Winder 4.3 5 38 38
countersinks are backwards This bracket has to be attached with flathead screws or the screw heads will interfere with the cordwinder and it won't swing side to side. Unfortunately, the countersinks on the screw holes are stamped from the back of the bracket. I had to mill countersink bevels on both of the brackets I purchased with my drill press before they would work properly. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone without some machining skills. It is curious to me that it doesn't seem to have been tried out by the people who built and manufactured it. July 23, 2013
disappointed I would not have purchased this item if I knew it needed to be assembled - it is awkward to use ant not worth what I paid for it. October 15, 2013
I really wanted this to work for my needs. Sadly, it didn't. I was intrigued by the notion that I would not have to continue to roll up 100' cords in my shop every time I used them, and I was encouraged by the good reviews it got. But there were a few problems I encountered. The main one had to do with the wheel design. This is a molded plastic part with a wide, grooved rubber band slipped over the outer diameter to give it a means to "grip" the cord as you turn the crank. For a long cord dragging across the ground, you really have to bear down on the yoke to give enough friction for the unit to work. In my case, the rubber band continuously slipped on the outside of the crank wheel, causing it to come become dislodged from the wheel several times. I even added a few drops of gorilla glue under the band, and while that kept it in place, I still had to apply a lot of pressure to the yoke to make any impact at all in getting the cord to reel in. For others considering one of these, I would recommend using light gauge cords that have a lot of flex, and be wary if it is located in a very cold place, which tends to make the cord stiff and harder to reel. I hate to give tough reviews on products, and this may be perfect for many people, but it did not work my needs. December 7, 2014
misleading This product only works if you screw it to a wall... I planned on using it with my pool vac instead of bringing out my extension cord every time.. Its easier to wrap the cord up every time than deal with this mess. Its sitting in my garbage can now. June 11, 2012
