Winding up messy, tangled cords can be a seriously annoying task but the Great Stuff RoboReel keeps wires safely and neatly organized.

The portable cord reel can rest on the ground or attach to any wall or ceiling and has incorporated various safety features into its design.

When one of two buttons is pressed, the extension cord begins to roll up into the machine and automatically slows down when it gets nearer to the reel to prevent the cord from flailing wildly.

It will lock in place when the cord is in use to prevent accidental winding and stops when something obstructs the cord. This prevents someone from walking by the machine and being tripped by a fast-moving cord. The reel also automatically shuts off electrical current if the cord is severed and comes with an internal thermostat to prevent overheating.
