Do not buy. Poorly made. Contacts inside break and jump from one copper ring to the other creating a short circuit. I've had it for a few years and used intermittently. Last week I smelled an electrical odor when I was using this reel and cord. I looked up and saw smoke. I was able to hit the breaker and shut the power of and disassembled it and found where the contacts had shorted across the copper rings. Contacted Sears and got no where. I am contacting the Consumer Protection Agency to see if this model can't be recalled.;
Bought at my local Sears closing sale. Packing was slightly open but everything was still sealed or in bag. When installed the item would not retract. Spent over $40 on a defective item that Sears had with no indication of a issue. Cannot Return.
