Retractable Cord won't lock

I have a Targus mouse with retractable cord. The cord winds up fine, but won't lock in place when I extend it out. How do I fix this?

When fully extended (you have to hold the cord in place since it won't lock), slide the rectractable device down the cord until it is butted up against the USB connector. You can use the mouse with no problems like this. When you are done, slide the retractor back to the middle of the cord and the ends will wind back in. It's not a perfect solution but at least makes the mouse usable.

Following on to the above solution, I held the full length of the cable out, and moved the retractor just a little, to a new position along the cable. It seems to work fine now. Maybe the cable got slighty deformed in that one spot, and moving it gave it a fresh start.

I have a mouse with a retractable cord, but when I go and try to extend the cord, it doesn't lock in place and it shoots back into the mouse. If you could please help fix this it would be appreciated.


the retractor lock is prob broken cannot rely fix them, would just tie a not in cable and it will not go back in then. pull all way out and tie not in cable so its near to the mouse end. its not a fix but it will work the retractor locks don't last on items flimsy plastic. the pins wear out so don't lock.

Cord won't retract on exectrical cord reel


The most common cause is the the cord has been extended past its limits (fully extended) and can't be pulled any further to pull the latching mechanism far enough to release and allor the winder to do its think. (I used to manually force it to move further by using a screwdriver. Pushed the coil a bit further over (as if more cord was being extracted), just to the point where the latch could release.
There's a troubleshooting guide on the Reelcraft website. Perhaps it can help.

The problem may be in the actual connectors. Try using a different USB port. If the mouse is out of warranty, you could snip the usb plug off and splice it into another USB connector.

Not worth it!
One wrong wire could burn out multiple USB ports on your computer (or any computer the device is plugged into).
It would be best to get a new or used mouse.

Am trying to fix my retractable mouse. do you have any diagram showing how the insides of the retractable mechanism looks like.thanks!


No pix or diagram, but you'll see a coil spring that provides the retracting function, plus one very small ball bearing that provides the holding function. The ball bearing sits on a dimple in the case and "lodges" itself in a groove in the top plate, so that whenever you rotate the case all the way around once, the ball bearing falls into the dimple and locks the two pieces together until you yank the cord. The cord just wraps around the case and there is enough friction between the cord and the case that as you pull/slide the cord, it winds the spring.

What happens most of the time is that the case/plate slips apart and the tension comes off, and/or the ball bearing drops out.

I took the plate off the case (a small phillips screw), rewound the spring a couple of turns, rewrapped the cable, very carefully put the ball bearing in the groove, and put the screw back in. It was difficult, and you should do it with tacky paper on your work surface because I dropped the ball bearing quite a few times.

Earlier in this column, someone said send it back in for warranty. almost worth it to do that, because the small pieces can be frustrating to deal with.

Retractable cord


I'm assuming that you have bought the new retractable cord assembly. If you have so, I believe the cord should retract going counter-clock wise (pulling it makes it spin clockwise).
