Banged this out several years ago and I guess I’ll make a new one with a bit more TLC sometime, but it’s still doing the job. Really saves a lot of time (and aggravation). There are 4 dowels that span the width at about a 2” radius from the center that the lights actually wind on, not the center axle.

Hey that’s a cool idea! I saw that on national lampoon Christmas vacation!

Great idea. Long ago I put lights up outside. Would have been a real help.

Holly hell, brought back fond (un) memories of my recalcitrant vacuum cleaner hose!
