The wiring in your home or any project is a permanent fixture and we depend on it daily, so why would you take any chances of damaging it while installing it? Contractors use the larger 500 & 1000 ft. rolls because of the reel that is supplied with the wire. They know that damaged wire can cause faults or even a fire. Also, it is easier to dispense the wire from a reel, thus saving time on the job. The down side is: having to move these heavier rolls around to various locations on the project.

UseJB250 Electrical Wire Caddy to Work... Smarter not Harder!
Packages of 250 ft. NM wire are manufactured and sold without an inner plastic reel. The roll comes wrapped in plastic and then it becomes your problem to dispense the wire from the packaged roll.
I know that this problem exists as I have been an electrician for over 37 years.
With that being said, there has to be a lot of frustrated customers out there. I know you can just cut the plastic out of the center of the roll and pull the wire out like a spring and then untwist it. That works until you have pulled in what you have untwisted and then realize you need another 20 feet to complete the run. There begins the problem. Decission time! Do you just keep pulling in the twisted wire or do you pull more wire out of center and take the roll and try to unwind the curls --- all of the while trying to keep the curled wire from tangling up with other objects on the floor --- like saw horses, boxes, lumber, people, etc. Then what happens to the excess wire that you have pulled out of the roll that you don't need?

This is a picture of 2, JB250 Wire Caddy's (on a wire cart) at work easily dispensing 12/2 NM wire during a garage remodel. The 2, JB250 Wire Caddy's seen here have been in our field testing program for 4 yrs and have dispensed over 100 rolls of 250ft. residential Romex ® wire each. They show no wear,cracks and no loss of parts on the job or in service trucks.
Oh, Sorry no "Bikini Girl" in the picture; after the reels are loaded they don't need anyone watching them...........................................................................
By using the JB250 Electrical Wire Caddy's you can use 250ft. rolls, make multiple wire pulls at one time, eliminate waste and rework. You can reduce the probability of any damage to the wire while dispensing it, store unused wire safely --- free from damage so it can be used again later on the next wire pull. Also, why be bound to using a 1000/500 ft. reel when the average wire pull in a house is under 25 ft.? Grant it the home runs to the main electrical panel are longer. But guess what --- in a 2000sq.ft. house the average home run is under 100ft. By positioning multiple JB250 reels on a wire cart beside the main electrical panel, you can actually pull multiple home runs in at one time and then use the left over wire on the caddy's for your shorter runs.
The JB250 Electrical Wire Caddy is designed to be used by the homeowner or DIY who is wiring their home. That is why we have made it affordable for you to use on home projects. The cost of the product includes shipping and handling so there is no mystery to the actual price; and it comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee... that's because they work!

I’ve been using the JB250 electrical wire caddy to help me wire my pole barn by myself, using 12-2 and 10-3 wire. It’s very handy – less expensive and more natural (to me) to use than the Greenlee or Carlon designs. I had to widen it to accommodate my 150 ft. roll of 10-3, replacing the bolts with all-thread.
