Flat Out Multi-Reel - Cable Reel for Trades and Construction

Protect your leads, keep your toolbox organised.
Save time, money and sanity! 

1.5 minute video: Tradie gets tired of lazy apprentice - Multi-Reel to the rescue!

Flat Out's Multi-Reels are perfect for lead and cable storage, protection and organisation in countless industries! They stack together for added space management, look great in the work ute or van, but most importantly they save you time, which saves you money!

Hand-rolling power leads to prevent twists requires skill that needs to be taught. The Multi-Reel is so intuitive to use, you can hand the job to anyone  with zero explanation (even the apprentice!) and be confident they will not damage your leads. Twists are the number one cause for extension lead failure and the way cables wind onto multi-reel, twists will not form. And when you next get the cord out, it is guaranted to be tangle free.

SAFETY Features

Coiled leads under current heat up, and pose fire risk. Flat Out Multi-Reels are far safer than conventional cable reels as they are designedin a way that the user is forced to remove the whole cable to be able to use it.

When stacked together your leads are armour plated in transit due to the solid backs of the reels, further protecting your gear against damage from other items while you drive around. Thus, Multi-Reel also reduces the dangers associated with working with damaged electrical cords.
