Base Mounted Reels

Base Mounted Reels
Base mounted reels are often used for repositioning cables and wiring harnesses. These reels are a popular choice for managing cables on network and server racks.

Compact and lightweight, these cable retractors are a drop-in solution for design engineers and OEMs needing light amounts of tension or retraction.

Our base mounted reels are available in metal or plastic. Both types use a prestressed power spring (Spirator).

Metal reels have an exposed cable and spool which allows the end user to adjust the spring tension.

Our plastic ML4575 series reels have a closed case construction making the spring unit tamper-proof when mounted.

Both types of reel have a 2” x 2-3/8” base and are less than 7/8” in height. These compact spring reels range in force between 0.5 lbs and 2.0 lbs.

Nylon coated and uncoated stainless steel cables are available.
