Three years ago, frustrated with the tangle of cords on his kitchen countertop, David Alden cobbled together a series of dog leashes and tape measures to create an automatic cord-winding device to clear up the mess. It was a simple solution to a common problem, and his friends urged him to turn it into a business. But he didn’t have the capital to get a company off the ground. With no collateral, a traditional bank loan was out of the question, and while he and his wife used much of their savings to create the initial prototypes, he didn’t want to mortgage his home for such a risky venture. So, he turned to the Internet.
In February, 2012, Alden launched a campaign on Kickstarter, one of many crowdfunding sites that give entrepreneurs a platform to raise capital to support their business ideas. His goal was to raise at least $10,000 to ramp up production of the Recoil Automatic Cord Winder. By the end of the campaign, he had raised $141,000.

One problem hasn't gone away in this time of rapid tech innovation: the array of cords required to live a modern, digital life has only grown. I have an entire drawer in my home dedicated to cords and they're a mess. And yet, the products out there to address the issue largely leave something to be desired. They're highly manual, often fray the cords and aren't always compact. Recoil Winders solve a ton of these problems.

Cords and cables will come and go, but they will always get tangled, except if you have Recoil Winders.

"If your cord storage basket looks like a bird's nest and it takes you 10 minutes to untangle just one, Recoil is the best antidote to smart phone, smart pad and laptop cord mayhem."
Cords. Everywhere you look, there are cords. We were promised this cord-free utopia long ago, but it’s not arrived.
Not ready to buy a new cable? Our answer to that is the Recoil.

FRIENDS. I have some very exciting news. I’m about to solve your cord problems.
Even if you don’t think you need these for yourself,
you’re in denial the holidays are coming up fast and I’m sure you know lots of people who aren’t in denial would definitely love to receive a few!

I hate wires particularly when they get tangled; I once dreamed that I was being strangled by a bunch of cords (more of a nightmare). Recoil Cord Management System comes in different sizes, colors, easy to use, durable, and easlly adjustable which gives it 5 stars on TechPicks rating scale.

Untangle your Cords with Recoil
"I asked my husband to assist me in this review because he has a lot of electronics that he could use these Recoil Winders on. Once I explained the process to him and instructed him on how they work, he asked if I could order a dozen or so of the Winders in various sizes. Now, my husband is not easily impressed; however, he loved the idea behind the Recoil Winders and the simplicity of the actual product. Needless to say, he loved the fact that he could protect his fragile electronic cords from damage, especially when we are traveling."

Recoil Automatic Cord Winders - In-depth Updated Review
"We were recently given samples to try out for ourselves – 2 medium winders and one large. After using them on several of my charging cables and headphones, I really can't imagine traveling without them. First off, they wind very quickly – it can be almost surprising at first if you are not expecting it. Second, they protect your cords from knots and kinks, which can ruin your cords over time. Finally, they save time and frustration by preventing you from having to deal with a tangled up mess."
