Multi-Reel Storage Reels for power leads and Flat Out Hoses

One simple design uniting ease of use, anti-tangling, compact stacking and longevity

Designed to protect and store Flat Out hoses, Multi-Reels are also sold separately to accommodate your own power leads, cables, special ropes and more. You can be as creative as you like with Flat Out storage reels. Check out how the guys at Towcam have taken our space saving reel and used it to enhance their underwater camera. If you have a question about suitability for a custom use, feel free to contact us

    Power Lead Storage - for everyone

    Power Lead Capacity Guide

    Commonly power leads are sold as Household (10 amp), Heavy Duty (10 amp or 15 amp) or Extra Heavy Duty
    (15 amp with extra-extra insulation). We have measured cable diameters and winding lengths to produce the following approximate guide.

    Lead Type (Thickness) Compact Multi-Reel Maximum Multi-Reel Maximum
    Household
    (~8 mm)
    30 m 30 m
    Heavy Duty
    (~9 mm)
    20 m 30-40 m depending on brand
    Extra Heavy Duty
    (~15 mm)
    10 m 20 m


    Even the kids can do it!

    Tangle Free solution

    Until you’ve tried it you probably won’t understand exactly how easy our Multi-Reels are to use. It takes the same amount of time to pack up a lead onto our reels as it would to wind it around your elbow but when it comes to setting back up, you will really feel the difference. You may be a pro at winding your long lead but it only takes one moment of lost concentration when getting it back out (or someone else put it away badly) and you have a tangled mess to unravel, knots to undo and so on. With a Multi-Reel you just; anchor the lead at one end, walk away holding the Multi-Reel handle and allow it to unspool, unclick your other end from the reel, plug it in and you’re done!

    Protect your power cables, increase their life

    A more important advantage is increasing the longevity of your lead. Did you know that every time you twist a power lead (which happens when hand bundling) you risk some of the internal copper cracking. When enough of these copper threads break, your lead becomes unsafe and stops working.

    Freedom to be less careful

    Multi-Reels are impact resistant. Once your lead is safely wound into the reel you can accidentally drop it, toss it into the back of the ute, bury it in the shed or slide it into that hard to reach cavity on your motorhome that wasn’t good for storing much else. It is a bit like the freedom you get when you put a case on your mobile phone.

    We don’t recommend you deliberately try to destroy your reel, obviously it will stay nicer if you are kind to it, but we did have a customer tell us he accidentally drove over his, it cracked a bit but still works!



    How To Operate

    The winding and unwinding process is the same whether you are rolling a power lead or hose, or any other application you have for Flat Out Multi-Reel or Compact Multi-Reel.

    How To Wind Up

    1. Align front petal opening with black guides and place plug or hose end in center, laying cable through the reel and out the exit guides
    2. With grey handle in left hand, wind the knob in a clockwise direction using your right hand until entire cable is enclosed.
    3. The socket end will sit just outside the opening.

    How To Unwind

    1. Pull out some of the lead and put something on the end to keep it in place.
    2. Holding grey handle, walk away allowing the cable to naturally unspool.
    3. Always remove completely from the reel before use. Bundled power leads can get hot and fail.
