I don't know if we have received a product that is fundamentally different from the one featured but both the picture and the description are misleading. Firstly, the pic is upside down; the spindle on top of the casing should be at the bottom as this is the thing you tie the line around to secure/lock it once it has been extended and hooked up. Secondly, there is no auto locking mechanism; as said the line is secured by wrapping around the knob/spindle. I've only given three stars because of this mis-information. The line does retract nicely and the quality of the line seems ok but we've only had it a short time and we will see if it lasts.
