    After reviewing many other extension sockets I chose the Ring 10amp extension socket even though there were some negative points about this product concerning its ability to unwind and rewind the cable successfully. I needed one that had a 10amp rating so I chose this one. The item arrived on time and packaged well. Once I had got the Ring extension socket from it's packaging I proceeded to try and unwind it from it's housing, this was not the easiest of tasks it was very stiff and the cable had been wound so tightly into the housing it took some considerable force to loosen it. I eventually unwound the Ring Extension cable from its housing and then tried to rewind, this again was a mammoth task as the winder would just not move at all. After giving it some welly it eventually rewound into its housing.
    All these difficulties had been the negative remarks that I had read about in the other reviews so I already knew about them and was not surprised about it. As per another review on the Ring extension socket, I pulled the plastic housing apart and binned it in the recycling bin (best place for it) and unwound the cable and used it purely as a length of extension cable. I have been using it now for the last few weeks to it's full 10amp rating without any problems what so ever. The Ring extension cable works very well without its plastic housing and is good value for money.
    If you're happy to bin the plastic housing and just use it as a free hand cable then you won't go far wrong with this item. I would have given the Ring extension cable a higher score if the plastic housing winder had worked, but it didn't so hence the lower score. Having said all of this I can recommend this item.

    Like others before me, I found the reel-system to be difficult to operate, so removed it. The cable itself is of substantial grade, and can take the current (5A) I needed without becoming warm.

    If you're not looking for a reel-based system, but do want a well made, well rated, cable, then this is for you.

    Well it's a cable, it has jammed in it's holder, so I need to strip and rebuild it, but it is a handy thing to have. The holder just needs a bit of work to turn it into a decent product.

    found this item would not unwind,spoke to customer service they said just turn ratchet to unwind, device wouldn't unreel, had to force ratchet with pliers to open. eventually got it unreeled. tried to re roll but just as bad. ended up removing useless reeling cover.nice idea but generally poor quality.
    didn't return it beacause i really needed a 10amp extension that weekend.

    The actual lead works fine but, as stated in previous reviews, the wind up part is completely useless. I could not unwind it and could see the reason was that it was twisted inside. I couldn't be bothered to return it, so I smashed the case in order to get the lead out, so I now have the lead but no way to store it.

    Bought to enable me to power equipment at the boot of the car (e.g. Mini cooler), by connecting it to the dashboard power supply.
    I selected this one because of its claimed 10A rating so as to run Bicycle pumps and Spotlights if needed.
    I have only used it a few times, mainly for testing purposes.
    The winding and unwinding works well so far, minimising the space taken by it, something very useful because of the long wire.
    The whole set-up feels solid.

    My main complaint is that it does not appear to be able to supply the claimed 10A.
    Whereas the 12V pump and the cooler will work fine the spotlight (8A) will not work with the extension wire, despite working fine when connected directly with the cars power socket.
    So make sure you do not buy this expecting it to run anything over 8A, like most spotlights.

    The main rolling mechanism can't withstand normal use. Better off with a coiled cord if you want expandable power line. Cable itself looks fine.

    this product is poorly designed,once it is unwound it is impossible to wind back.you might as well buy a straight lead for less money.
