PCauthority.com: "So simple yet effective you’ll be kicking yourself you didn’t kickstart the idea yourself...Utterly brilliant – we’ll be ordering plenty of these wonderful Recoil Winders."

MobileMag.com: " This Kickstarter project looks like a game changer..."

GadgetMac:  "...this ingenious little contraption actually does the job for you quickly and efficiently....It's the only automatic, self-winding cord gadget we've ever seen, and we really like the sound of that."    

Never Chill: "Another amazing invention out of the Kickstarter corner. Recoil automatically winds up your headphones and other like-minded peripherals in 2 seconds so you’ll never have to worry about tangles again."

SGBlogs.com: "This is one of those things that makes you wonder why didn't anyone think of it earlier...Say goodbye to tangles in a fun and simple way".

The Recoil Story 

Recoil is proud to introduce the Recoil Cord Winder, the ONLY cord winder that is automatic, spring loaded, and designed to wind almost every one of the cords and cables that clutter our world. 

The Problem

The Solution

Available in 3 sizes, Recoil Winders are designed to wind the widest range of cords and cables, since our electronic devices come with such a wide variety of sized and shaped cords. 

The Small Winder is specifically designed to wind your Apple iPod and iPhone earbuds, both with and without mics, and other headphones and earphones without mics.

The Medium Winder will wind all of your headphones, and most light weight USB and charging cords up to 47".

The Large Winder will wind the rest of your small diameter cords and cables up to 60" long.

Recoil Winders are the ONLY winders available designed to accommodate the mics which are included on almost all headphones. If you have a smartphone, your headphones probably have a mic, so this is really important. Other winders that are available typically will not accommodate mics.

It is also important that a winder easily detaches from your cords, especially headphones, since having a winder attached to headphones while listening to your music adds significant weight and bulk, and puts that weight directly on your ears, and is likely to pull your headphones out of your ears.

The Recoil Winder can also be left permanently on your cords, which is best for chargers, since only rarely do you need the full length of cable to make it from the power outlet to your phone or camera. Best, if you only need a little bit of length, just pull out the length of cord that you need, and leave the rest on the winder.

The Recoil Winder System is made complete by The Rack, which makes it possible to snap a set of 3 winders into one small unit. This makes keeping your cords organized and accessible easier than ever, and keeps your most important cords together at your desk or while traveling.

No more tangled phone chargers, USB cords, camera chargers or headphones.  No more searching for the right charging cord or forgetting which cord belongs to which device. And no more tangled messes.

Our personal electronics are supposed to make our life easier, but the cords that go along with those electronics have been tangling our lives long enough.

Tangled cords are the Problem. The Recoil Winder is the Solution.
