Rated 5 out of 5 by bmb8 Good product
Seems a sturdy wire which is good for being out the garden, and is nice and easy to wind out or in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous A little disappointing
Not particularly manageable as the rewind grip is not particularly good and the cord jams when rewinding.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AL Poor Design & Function
The reel is functional only in so far that it has a plug on one end and four sockets on the other!
However, trying to rewind the cable onto the reel once extended is a total nightmare.
The rewinding handle is tiny and very difficult to grip.
The reel size is just barely big enough to hold the wound cable - IF NEATLY REWOUND.
Normal rewinding causes the cable to wrap over itself meaning that it's difficult to fully retract the cable onto the drum. The cable jams and the small handle means it's impossiblr to continue.
Don't buy it

Sturdy and looks unlikely to break. The open design of the reel makes it much easier to wind back in than the standard cheapo enclosed ones, because you can guide the wire in with your hand.

Good value, robust. Has requisite safety cut-outs, performs as you would expect.

This extension reel is stable, easy to wind and solid enough for both indoor and outdoor use.
Good value and recommended.

I bought this extension lead to replace my ageing lead, I chose this one because it has a thermal cut out, not many people know that if you leave your lead coiled when using some appliances it can over heat and cause a fire, this installed device prevents this from happening (peace of mind). I did buy the shorter one but found the rewind handle was too short making it difficult to rewind the cable. This model has a slightly longer handle making it a breeze to rewind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Octavia Great value for money
Robust, good quality extension reel; winds back up smoothly. Light - took it abroad and barely made a difference to my luggage weight! Comfortable carry handle. Well laid-out sockets, especially as the majority of my plugs now extend above the socket rather than below.
