Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch DL24104 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DL24104. This is the Dutton-Lainson hand-winch cable with a safety hook. The cable itself is going to give us a 1/4" diameter. It's going to measure 50 feet long. It's going to have the forged steel hook on this end with the safety latch mechanism that is spring loaded. It's going to prevent accidental disconnecting or unhooking. This is a flexible 7 x 9 galvanized aircraft cable.

It is going to be suitable on Dutton-Lainson Hand Winches, up to a 3,500 pound capacity. It will work for StrongArm electric winches up to 3,000 pounds. It's going to have the safe working load limit for other applications of 1,400 pounds. Nice construction, very strong, and very durable. You can see here where the steel hook swivels around the cable.

Dutton-Lainson puts a nice steel plate in there. That's just going to prevent the cable from wearing or fraying. It's going to extend the life of the cable itself. Here on this end, you have the exposed cable end. This is going to be the end that gets anchored to the winch.

That's going to do it for our review of part number DL24104. This is the Dutton-Lainson hand winch cable with a safety hook. Again, you're going to have 50 feet in length. The cable diameter is 1/4". .

This winch has a lot of power, very smooth operation. It works great with my 1/2in battery powered drill. cable always winds perfect and tangle free. I use it to pull my 16ft jon boat out of the water on a makeshift ramp. the boat and motor is around 1000 lbs. its a very high quality winch and its made in the USA. 690911

Very nice product! I am happy! 298210

Excellent. I probably could have used a much smaller cable, but it should handle any load I might have in the future. 255345

Good price. Fast shipment. 230587

The product was exactly what I ordered, but the service was really great and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. My purchase arrived a couple days early and the invoice arrived on the day of purchase. I work with many many companies and yours for service is one of the best. Thanks for your help in obtaining this cable. Ken 191395

Hand winch is strong, larger than expected, and built pretty heavy duty. One thing to note, the pawl (clicker) is only one sided, so it won't hold the load when letting cable out. It would be nice if it had an extra little tab to allow cranking in, cranking out, and neutral (line pull out) positions. Also, I'm new to winches, but kind of wish it had a clutch on the cable to keep tension on the cable spool. When nothing is on the line, the tension on the spool unravels, causing the cable go all over the place, the first time i used it, I slightly pinched the cable (I had half the line payed out, and the slack on that part got bunched up when I started pulling in) I went with a cable instead of strap so that I could use a snatch block pulley if i ever needed extra power, and also ordered a cable twice as long as what I needed to allow for looping back (using it on a utility/car trailer) Looking back I should have went with the shorter cable so that the line would be all the way out when starting to winch. I might cut down the cable to a shorter length and eventually replace it with a strap. Another drawback i found with the cable is that it tends to wander all over the drum back over itself if you aren't careful causing a tangled mess, but I guess that happens on the power winches too. Another accessory I wish they had was a heavy waterproof drawstring bag to slip over the winch when not in use. I made a removable pedestal using 2" receiver tube, so I plan to keep the winch indoors. but I really should grease up the cable and it would be nice to have a cover. (Might try to make a bag or have one made) Overall I'm satisfied and the winch itself more than met my expectations. I was able to easily pull a 2003 Grand cherokee up the ramps onto my trailer with one hand and single line. 142865

  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
    Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • Brake Hand Winch to Replace 1500-lb-Rated Shelby 5352
    Some Shelby winch models used a handle that secured to the winch with an Allen key. If this is the type you have then it is possible that the set screw or the post on the winch the handle attaches to is stripped or worn to the point that the handle can no longer crank the winch. While we don't have a repair kit for your Shelby 5352 winch we do have a great replacement winch to match what you have since it is a 1,500 lb brake winch. For that you'd want the Dutton Lainson 1,500 lb Winch...

  • Is There a Left-Hand Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch
    We do carry a left-hand winch very similar to the 2,000 lb capacity winch # DL14725 you asked about, with the only difference being the left-hand winch has a larger 2,500 lb capacity. The winch you need is the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - 2 Speed - Direct Drive - Left Side Handle - 2,500 lbs # DL15403. The correct cable for this winch is the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24104.

  • How to Select Appropriate Winch for Car Hauler Trailer
    Both the Fulton # F142421 and the Dutton Lainson # DL15440 2-speed hand winches are rated for 3200-lbs maximum capacity. The Fulton works only with wire rope # FWC7500100 but the Dutton Lainson works with a wire rope # DL24104 or a polyester strap # DL24251. Although both are intended for use on a boat trailer they could certainly be used in a car trailer application so long as they offered the required pulling capacity. Most of the time car trailers use an electric winch, like one of...

  • Best Replacement for a Shelby Hand Winch 5405
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15303 is the replacement that I recommend for your Shelby Hand Winch 5405. These winches both have the same 1,400 lb capacity and overall size. In regards to mounting, most hand winches now use a standard pattern which I have attached a photo of for you. If your winch does not use this same mounting pattern you will need to modify yours to accept this. If you don't already have a strap/wire to use we have these available as part # DL24260 or part...

  • Can Dutton Lainson Winch # DL14927 be Used On Boat Lift
    Yes, the Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL14927 will fit and work well on your boat lift as a winch replacement as that is a very common application for this winch. If you needed a cable to go with it you'd also want the part # DL24104 which is 50 feet.

  • Ceiling Mount System for Creating Bed Lift
    Using the Tow-Rax L-Track # TWSP18DTAB is an interesting idea, though I cannot recommend using any type of track system on your ceiling to use as anchors as they are not designed for that. What that means is they are not tested for use on ceilings and don't have a weight capacity so I can't guarantee this would work, or even be safe. The best option we can provide is a winch, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Ceiling Mount # DL10954 with Hand Winch Cable # DL24104. I have provided a...

  • Mounting 1/4 Inch Cable to Hand Winch
    The Cable Clamp for Pulling and Brake Winches by Dutton-Lainson # DL24350 is compatible with 1/4 inch stainless Steel winch cable like the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 1/4" Diameter x 50' Long - 3,500 lbs # DL24104. You can also use the Cable Fastener for 1/4", 9/32" and 5/16" Cable and Heavy Duty Winches # DL24362 or the Cable Fastener for 3/16", 7/32", and 1/4" Cable and Medium Duty Winches # DL24361 to fit your 1/4 inch cable.

  • Upgraded Winch Recommendation With Same Mounting Dimensions As Current Winch
    The closest I can come to the same mounting holes you have for your DL1402A winch is part # DL14527. This is a 1,600-lb pulling winch and it has very similar mounting hole locations. I have attached dimensional drawings for the DL1402A and the # DL14527 winch you can check out. The mounting holes are nearly identical and I am sure the # DL14527 will work great for you. This winch does not come with the cable. For a cable I recommend part # DL24104. If you prefer a strap for the...

  • Boat Winch Recommendation for a 4,500 lb Boat
    When it comes to choosing a winch for a boat trailer, there are a few general rules we can use. The boat-size-to-winch capacity is generally 2 to 1. With good rollers and short winching distances, the ration can increase to 3 to 1 and with wooden bunks and long winching distances, you will want to reduce the capacity to 1 to 1. So basically, you will want to look at the type and condition of the bunks on your trailer to choose the best winch. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL14825,...

  • Recommended 3000-lb Dual Speed Brake Winch and Wire Rope
    The hand-operated brake winch I suggest for your application is the 3500-lb-rated two-speed Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL14881. This extra-heavy-duty winch uses wire rope # DL24104 which is sold separately.

  • Can the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive # DL11001 Be Mounted Vertically
    Yes, the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive # DL11001 that you referenced could be mounted vertically like on the post that you referenced. I attached a review video for this winch for you to check out. For cable you might also be interested in the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24104.

  • What is the Bolt Hole Mounting Pattern for Dutton Lainson Trailer Hand Winch # DL14725
    I will be happy to show you the mounting hole dimensions for hand winch # DL14725. I have included a picture that shows them for you. This winch can be used with either a strap, # DL24249, or a cable # DL24104. Straps are much better for marine applications because they will not rust. The strap is rated for 4,000 pounds and the cable is rated for 3,500 pounds. You always want the cable or strap capacity to be at least 1.5 times greater than the winch capacity or higher for safety.

    We have several options that may work for your application. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Direct Drive - 1,800 lbs., item # DL15502, will hold up to 70 feet of 1/4 inch wire rope or cable. Next, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Single Speed - 1,800 lbs., item # DL14627, will also hold up to 70 feet of 1/4 inch wire rope or cable.

  • Is a Driver Extension Available and How Does the Cable Install on Worm Gear Winch DL10954
    We currently do not offer the extension that you could use to operate the loop drive on winch # DL10954 because there are so many possible lengths that customers could need. As for the cable attachment it is fairly easy. First, for a cable, the recommended cable is # DL24104. To attach the cable I have included some pictures that show how the cable installs.

  • Availability of Winch To Use With 1/4-Inch Wire Cable
    If you need to have a winch that uses a wire cable I do offer the Dutton-Lainson 1,400-Lb Winch, part # DL15303. This winch will accept either a 1/4-inch wire cable or a 2-inch wide strap. It will hold up to 40 feet of 1/4-inch cable or 31 feet of 2-inch wide strap. The part number for the cable would be # DL24104 and for the strap would be # DL24260.

  • Comparing Strap and Wire Cable for Use with Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch
    As long as the strap or wire cable you are using is rated properly for your winch, either one will work well with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14527 that you referenced. Using a strap or cable will come down more to personal preference. The wire cable will allow you to have a longer lead and will not offer any amount of give. Using a strap can limit the length of the lead. If you will be winching items that need to have the lead wrapped around them, the strap...

  • High Capacity Hand Winch Recommendation for 10,000 lb Capacity
    The highest capacity hand winch we have is the Dutton Lainson part # DL14881 which has a capacity of 3,500 lbs. So with three of these you'd have 10,500 lbs of winch capacity. For a cable with a matching capacity we have the part # DL24104 which is 50 feet in length.

  • Recommended Winch To Use For a Boat Lift
    I do have a winch that could be used as a boat lift, but the item you selected, Dutton-Lainson hand winch # DL15440, would not be a good option as it is not a brake winch. A brake winch will stop the load and hold it in place if you were to let go of the handle when winching. For use as a boat lift, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL15721. This winch is designed for multipurpose uses including boat lifts. If you will need a larger capacity brake winch, we also offer...

  • How to "Increase" Diameter of Spool on Worm Gear Winch DL10954
    What you can do is use a longer cable on the worm gear winch part # DL10954 as that will basically give you a larger spool diameter as the cable will be wrapped several times around the spool. For a 50 foot long cable we have the part # DL24104.

  • Availability of a Two Way Trailer Winch with Braking, Low Gear Ratio, and Top Wind Handle
    A worm gear winch is what you will need. The closest gear ratio to what you are looking for is going to be 30 to 1 though. That is because of the nature of worm gear winches. They are designed for controlled movements of heavy loads. The downside in this case is that you have to turn the handle 30 times for 1 revolution of the drum. However, for the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Split Reel for 2 Cables, # DL10952, that you have referenced, you can use a heavy duty 1/2 inch variable...

  • Does the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11001 Have a Brake and Reverse Function
    The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, part # DL11001, is a single speed brake winch for use with cable. The brake function is when the cranking is stopped the reel automatically stops. It can be cranked in reverse. There is no free wheel mode, so to it will have to cranked in reverse to let out the cable. The handle has a hex drive so a 1/2 inch variable speed drill can be used to speed up the cranking process. It has a weight capacity of 2,000 lbs. The cable you will need for the...

  • Will Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10970 Work to Hoist Fishing Kayak
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL10970 that you referenced is a great solution for helping to unload your 200 pound fishing kayak and suspend it in the air. The winch features a 2,000 pound weight capacity and can be used with winch cable like # DL24104. Worm gear winches like this one work really well for hoisting objects since they don't have a free wheel option and the load can't reverse the direction of the winch. I have attached a short video demonstration on this winch that you...

  • Hand Winch for Use Pulling Floating Boat Dock
    Most winches can use a wire rope or nylon strap of up to about 20-feet in length. In your floating dock application where there is not really going to be a lot of weight on the winch an item like the 600-lb-rated Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125 would do the trick. With it you can use a 50-foot cable # DL24104.

  • Looking For Winch For Jet-Ski Trailer Where Handle Can Be Swapped to Other Side of Winch
    The lowest capacity hand winch we offer that the handle is easily changeable would be the Dutton-Lainson # DL14527. The folks at Dutton-Lainson have told us that this winch is capable of being modified. The drum, its shaft, the gear shaft and pawl shaft would all need to be removed, and reversed. The gear shaft is held in place by both a nut and an e-clip that would need to be removed. I have labeled these parts in a photo I have edited for you. In other words, some dis-assembly would...

  • Suitability of Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch DL14881 for Raising and Lowering 400 lb Radio Tower
    The Duttton-Lainson Brake Winch you referenced, part # DL14881, would be a great choice for raising and lowering a 400 lb radio tower. The winch has plenty of capacity for that weight, and the integral brake will engage as soon as the handle is released, preventing the winch from freewheeling while lowering the tower. The load will raise or lower by turning the winch handle in the appropriate direction, with no need to engage or disengage a lever. The winch cable is sold separately....

  • Recommended Cable With Hook for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440
    The correct cable with hook for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 is the # DL24104. This is a 50 foot long 1/4 diameter galvanized aircraft cable with safety hook. The cable fastener you will need for this is the # DL24362 which is sold separately from the wire cable. If you prefer the strap the one recommended for this hand winch is # DL24251. This 2 inch wide strap is 20 foot long and comes with the safety hook as well as the bolt to secure it to the winch. I have linked...

  • Is there a Wire Rope/Cable that is Between 25 and 50 Feet Long for Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch
    Dutton Lainson winch # DL11004 is designed to accept a strap and the longest strap available is 25 feet. Since that is not going to be long enough I recommend looking at a different worm gear winch such as # DL11001. However, the wire ropes for these winches go from 25 feet up to 50 feet with nothing in between. It is better to have too much line than not enough so if you go with this winch I recommend wire rope # DL24104.
