"Have used this quite a lot now. The cable is 45m long,strong and tough. Easy to unwind and wind up on the reel. The reel sides are a bit flimsy, so I would not recommend this for a work site, but tough enough for general use.
"I needed a new extension lead of 30m+. Whilst there are some good deals elsewhere on shorter 25m reels, Screwfix knocks spots off the competition for this 45m extension. The cable is full 13A rated (not the more limited 10A seen on some rival products). The reel is reasonably light and has plenty of capacity, so even when not rewound that well, the cable doesn't fall off the edges. The plastic edges of the reel seem designed to take normal knocks etc by bending, so I would be careful to store out of sunlight, just in case it hardens and cracks over time."
"A great product with multiple sockets and shutoff protection will reach anywhere. The only drawback is that there is so much cable it barely fits on the drum when winding in and would be better if the sockets were switched but overall a great cable reel at a great price."
"Nothing to criticise... It's not too bulky for such a great length of three core cable. The cable looks good quality and is suitably flexible. Rewinding is simple as the free running drum has ample free space not to have to take too much care in guiding the cable back on.
"Nice light sturdy reel and frame. Reel turns freely. Cable is brightly coloured so shouldn't become a trip hazard. And after shopping around for like for like this was by far the best and the cheapest."
"This 240V extension lead is longer than most, which makes it safer to use outdoors because you do not need to 'daisy-chain' a pair of shorter leads. Not only this, but it represents excellent value for money in terms of £ per metre length.
The product: Really good length of three core cable 45 metres no less and at a must buy price. Cable is good quality and flexible (not a stiff cable) with 4 sockets. Easy to wind. The winder wheel is free running which makes it easy to use. There is a guide wire that prevents cable tangling as you reel it in.
Overall it is simply excellent. Ticks all the boxes for the money."
"The cable guide makes reeling in 45m of cable pretty easy and the pull out handle helps. I left it on the drive and my wife reversed into it (my fault apparently) and it still works perfectly. For the price it is worth having and much easier to recover from under the car than my hedge trimmer was when she reversed over that!"
