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

Make your leads last longer, 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 (even the apprentice!) with zero explanation 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 lead 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. 

Original Multi-Reel

The highest capacity cable reel made by Flat Out.  The Original Multi-Reel will fit over 30m heavy duty extension lead and many other items, protecting your gear and keeping it tangle free.

    A mid-size cable reel perfect for up to 22m of extension lead and many other uses. It has the same diameter as the Original Multi-Reel for easy stacking, but can save you space if you don't need the full 30m capacity, as it is narrower in depth.   

    It turns out it’s not just us - everyone really does love colour! Hot Pink was new in November and the first run is nearly sold out already. Don’t panic though, more are underway. ♥️♥️♥️♥️

      RV/Trade Extension Lead - 15amp by Coast to Coast

      Flat Out Multi-Reel works with any extension lead, yet we have this one in our warehouse for customer convenience, and because we rate it as an excellent extension lead. 

      A 15 Amp lead is nearly always required for caravans, yet some are bulky and heavy when they don't need to be. Space and weight reduction are comodities of high demand in the RV world. We like this particular lead from Coast RV because it is very high quality yet has a lighter and more flexible insulation, meaning you can have a longer length for less weight, less space and less work winding it up.

      Available as a 17m and a 22m length. Both lengths fit inside the Compact Multi-Reel, yet the 22m is snug, so it might be hard to squeeze in on a cold morning when the lead is less flexible. As such we recommend using the Narrow Multi-reel for a 22m length lead. 

      • Weight: 1.7 kg  or  2.1 kg 
      • Type: 15 A
      • Cable: 3 core 1.5mm

      The image of the lead in the Multi-Reel is for demonstration only, when you add this product you are buying extension lead only and must add your desired Multi-Reel separately.
