If you want to keep cords and cables from merging into a humongous serpentine mess, and if you like donuts or lazy river rafting, the Cordpro CP-100 may be right for you. Okay, it’s just a round yellow reel, but this is the beauty of it: no motorized parts, no complications — just a simple solution.
The Cordpro contains an internal divider that organizes the cord into two separate “chambers” so you can access either side independently. A soft rubber grip protects the center, and Cordpro says the heavy duty polymer (the yellow part, made of the same material as truck bed liners), withstands temperatures down to -100 F — at which point, I would hopefully be focusing more on avoiding hypothermia than organizing my extension cord, but at least anyone finding your frozen remains will know you didn’t abide messy cords.
You can score a Cordpro CP-100 for about $12 plus shipping.
