Reduce labor costs and the risk of injury to your staff by using the INSTA-REEL by Anixter.



The INSTA-REEL by Anixter consists of a standard wooden reel that has oversized flanges attached to both sides and becomes a payout stand when chocked in place.

  • INSTA-REEL's inner reel spins independently of the outer flanges creating a reel with a built-in payout stand. Just roll the INSTA-REEL into place, chock the flanges and start pulling your cable.
  • INSTA-REELs are pre-loaded with the cable of your choice and delivered completely assembled. After use, the INSTA-REEL is returned to Anixter making it an eco-friendly as well as cost-efficient product.
  • By paralleling and phase taping multiple conductors on the same reel, you can further reduce your labor costs and time. Additionally, pulling eyes can be installed on single-conductor cables.
