Electrical Extension Reel Widened

Problem: I bought an extension cord storage reel and the way it was designed it was difficult to have the plug that went into the wall located on the outside of the reel and have the reel turn freely and also to have enough cord so that the reel did not have to be really close to a wall plug.
Action: I cut through the three connecting points that held each side of the reel frame together. I added PVC tubes to expand the space so that there is a wider space for the longer cord to wrap and wrap around the axle as the cord is being dispensed.
Result: It works great!
