Tangles, kinks and snares come with the territory whenever working with extension cords. But the Flexy Cord from Philatron Wire and Cable takes removes the headache and the need for a reel for storage by retracting to its original length after use. The Flexy Cord saves space and reduces the chance of tripping over a cord. The cords retract via a combination of reduced cord diameter, increased coil diameter and specially engineered materials with “memory” that enables them to retract to their original length. The material is tangle-proof and kink-proof. The compact extension cords are available in several lengths ranging from $11 to $64. The 4-inch cord extends to 8 feet, the 5-inch cord extends to 10 feet, the 10-inch cord extends to 20 feet and the 20-inch cord extends to 45 feet.
