Hi to all: I just finished creating a product that will help keep the wire on the spool. I really need your feedback on what you think of it . I have a site for you to check out:
darzspoolwraps.electrical-contractor.net. I'll greatly appreciate your feedback and help. Thanks Daria

Daria,

It looks as though one could pull wire from the spool while the spool-wrap is attached, preventing "spin-off".

At the very least, if removal is necessary for use, it would keep them from unravelling in the truck.

Great idea!

Sell 'em in packs of five for three hots, a neutral and a ground. What size spools will they fit? 14, 12 and 10?

Good luck to you, it looks like you have a winner!

wow!....i'll take about 20 of them!...
thats a great idea....what are they made of?...how will they perform on spools that maybe have a piece broken off the end?
perhaps we need to talk "distributorship"?
i could use another source of income....

good luck and "keep inventing" !!!

Appears 8 narrow spools would fit on the display rack.

Is it the rack and spool adapter or just the spool ( reel ) adapter you are promoting ?

DJ, Its a great idea, BUT,(here comes the but)

unless you could make a one-size-fits-all spools, how many would I have to buy.???

In other words, I hope you can make them cheaply and sell them @ a low markup.
The average EC would need to buy ....what???.. a few dozen.

IDEA #2 could your rap double duty as a carrier.?????

Any thoughts about computer and tele wires.???
Those boxes are a bear, 1000ft spools are better to work with!!!!


Keep up the good fight.
(Any thing that makes my life easier)
