$24.99 on the shelf at Richmond Hill Walmart, was able to price match to the online tag. Thanks, OP!

Safety note for any of the reel types that the cord should be fully unreeled when used with a heavy load (like a motor) as the coil could cause overheating of the coiled cord (due to magnetic effect) and possible fire. I have seen that effect on a friends reel which completely melted the coiled portion of the cord's insulation.

This is echoed by a reviewer on Walmart's web site:
"Bought several of these units for use by a sewing group to power their sewing machines and task lights. They are very light and operate smoothly. They have an ON-OFF switch that incorporates a circuit breaker to help protect from overloading. Testing demonstrated that it is VERY IMPORTANT to pull out the entire cord, as directed by the manufacturer, if using this unit to power anything other than a very light load. On any load more than half the rated current of 13 AMPS, the wound up cord can become dangerously hot !! On one unit the 'dust cover' broke off one outlet on the very first withdrawal of the machine plug. This should be covered by warrantee."

Feel cheap, passed
Same. Reel had good reviews on amazon, but when I felt it, didn't even feel like it would hold up to even light duty home use. Felt like it was worth about $12. Passed as well.
The sawhorse seemed cheaper and even more of a gimmick.

Thanks for posting though.

Pointe-Claire
If you are in the West Island area and looking for one of these, check out the Pointe-Claire or Kirkland stores. Each location had about 2-3 of each model on the shelf (some different packaging also?). The Pointe-Claire store had the price labelled as $24.xx but they scan at $12. Kirkland showed the $24.xx price AND the lower $12 price.

Got one from Pte-Claire store thanks. 3 more left on the shelf.
This store seems to be phasing out most of their DIY stuff. The shelves are real mess!
