Recoil Winders untangle and organize your cords and cables...instantly and automatically. Sitting at their kitchen table with a pile of tangled cords and headphones, David Alden (inventor of the Recoil Winder) decided that he was going to solve this problem once-and-for-all. So began the process of inventing a product that would attempt to solve a problem that every person with a cell phone, computer or tablet deals with: tangled cords. It took more than one year and exactly 494 prototypes to perfect the result: Recoil Automatic Cord Winders. Launched and funded by over 1600% of their goal on Kickstarter, Recoil Winders went viral and sold more than 16,000 winders in 30 days, becoming one of the most successful projects on Kickstarter at that time. Their team took that momentum and has built a company that is committed to untangling and organizing every pair of headphones, USB cables, phone, computer and tablet chargers, and so many other cords that have been cluttering our desks, cars, luggage, home, and backpacks for too long.
