We have recently reviewed the GiRAFFE TOOLS wall-mounted pressure washer. GiRAFFE TOOLS seems to be gaining attention thanks to its heavy social media advertising for its automatic reeling tool systems. Since we had already dug into their pressure washer scene, we agreed to check out the GiRAFFE TOOLS Retractable Extension Cord Reel and Air Hose Reel. For this review, we covered the 50′ 14AWG extension cord retractable reel and the 50′ self-winding air hose reel. They have many different models of each item to choose from.

GiRAFFE TOOLS Extension Cord Reel (14AWG)

  • Size: 12.79″ x 10.94″ x 5.74″

Automatic Reel and Swiveling Mounting Plate

The GiRAFFE TOOLS, Retractable Extension Cord Reel has a built-in automatic reel which is very handy for the garage or shop. The reel feels very smooth and so far has worked properly. The mounting plate allows the Reel to swivel so the extension cord can be easily used in whichever direction is needed.

Additional Features

The GiRAFFE TOOLS, Retractable Extension Cord Reel includes a lighted Triple Tap Outlet showing that the plugs are powered. The cord stopper can be adjusted to your desired length. As a result, if mounting on the ceiling, this adjustable stopper will help you position the cord just right. In addition, there is a built-in, resettable circuit breaker for overload protection.

Self-Winding 50′ Air Hose Reel Specifications

  • Model: AWA15
  • Size: 14.8″ x 12.52″ x 7.44″
  • Max Pressure: 300 PSI

Automatic Reel and Swiveling Mounting Plate

The Giraffe Tools Self-Winding 50′ Air Hose Reel definitely has its role in keeping things easily accessible and neatly organized. As with the extension reel, simply pull the hose to the desired length for up to 50′ of lightweight hose. A slight tug will allow the reel to self-wind. The reel also is very smooth and self-winds nicely.

Additional Features

Below you will find close-up photographs. Pictured are the adjustable stopper and the self-layering guiding system which allows the hose to reel without binding. The hose is rated for up to 300 PSI and is a lightweight hose that I consider light-duty. The mounting system swivels 180 degrees, allowing the hose to extend to wherever you are working.

Final Thoughts / Buy it now

In conclusion, an auto reel system is excellent for quickly getting power or air where you need it, and quickly reeling it away when done.  The GiRAFFE TOOLS, Retractable Extension Cord, and Self-Winding Air Hose both work smoothly and seem to be of good quality. Each, including 50′ of retractable length, I think that they are a great addition to any garage or shop. The extension reel is priced at $96.99 and the self-winding Air Hose is priced at $97.99. Both reels can be purchased directly from the GiRAFFE TOOLS website by clicking below. In addition, they are also available on
