They also keep cords up off the ground, where they could be tripped on. Cord reels are also used to dispense, rewind and transport different types of cord, such as electrical cord, conductive cord, industrial cord, extension cord and lifting cord. Cord reels have applications in quite a few industries, such as: aerospace, automotive manufacturing and maintaining, chemical processes, cement, commercial manufacturing and services, construction, electronics, industrial manufacturing, medicine and transportation. A few cord reel applications within these industries include crash carts, extension cord retraction, long horizontal electric cord retrieval, industrial machinery and refueling.

The materials with which a cord reel is made depends on the requirements of its specific cord application. For example, cord reels intended for use with lightweight electrical cords are typically built using wood and/or plastic. Conversely, cord reels made to support heavier applications are usually made from strong metals like steel or stainless steel. There are, in addition, a variety of different kinds of cord reels designed to meet different requirements and price ranges. Standard manual cord reels, which are generally less expensive than other types, wind cords using a hand crank. Another common and quite popular cord reel type is the automatic cord reel, which may also be known as a retractable cord reel or a spring-loaded cord reel. No matter their name, all of these cord reels have built-in mechanisms that allow the cord reels to wind themselves, with only a small tug on the end of the cord required to get the process started.

However, while all retractable cord reels may be considered automatic, not all automatic cord reels can be considered retractable. Rather, retractability is an optional feature. Also, some spring loaded cords go so far as to feature a locking mechanism, which can sense whether one of these tugs is an intentional signal from the operator, or whether he or she is simply moving farther away with the cord. While automatic hose reels are incredibly convenient and burden operators with little stress, they are, as a whole, on the more expensive end of the cord reel spectrum.
