Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook Review

What's up, everybody It's AJ with Today we're going to be checking out this extra heavy-duty winch strap from Dutton-Lainson. Now, when you first set up your winch, you're going to see that they don't always come with the most heavy-duty straps. That's what happened here with this big boat on our trailer. It just didn't hold up, so now we need to replace it. That's where the Dutton-Lainson strap comes in.

It's extra heavy-duty. Let's take a closer look at it.Looking at the straps side-by-side, you can already see a difference, and that's not just because this one's seen better days. You see that it's doubled up better and thicker at the high stress point of the hook and the strap, not to mention the stitching is heavier duty. There just seems to be more of it in that space. This one's spread out, so I think it just didn't hold up over time and started to rip.

That's not going to happen with this one. There's way more stitching involved.Looking at the hooks side-by-side, you see they're about the same size, although this one's zinc plated, so it's not going to end up rusted and corroded like this one did. The strap itself is 20 feet long by 2 inches. It also works with winches up to 3,200 pounds and has a breaking point of 4,800 pounds, which just means when they we're testing it, it seemed to break around 4,800 pounds. That gives you plenty of strength for whatever you're towing.Most winches come with not the most heavy-duty strap installed on it.

You'll have to buy one separately that is more fit for what you're going to use it for. As you can see, this one just definitely didn't hold up to time at all. The snap guard here doesn't stay in place, so if this was down like that and you hit a bump, you're going to come loose, and you see the threads are ripped here. That's not good. That's not going to last very long when you're going down the road.

If the sun's gotten to it and damaged it, it's even ripped in a few places, so it's definitely time to get this one off the winch and install the new one.So I'm going to back out this strap so I can get to the hardware. It looks like when they installed this one, they ran it through the holes here on the side to keep it in place, so I'm going to try and work those out. Another option you have is you could just cut it and move on. We're going to try and get all this old strap out.It's time to add our new one. You got a loop here in the center. I'm going to put the bolt in through this side, run through the center of that strap loop there. Straight to the other side. Now it does come with its own hardware, but it didn't really fit our winch, so we had to use our own. Now we add a nut to the other side, get a few more turns of the wrench just to make sure it's tight and it's good to get it snug, but don't overtighten it. It's time to go ahead and roll up the strap.Let's go ahead and add the hook to the boat, and hold tight. With the strap tightened down, we're ready to go. It was that easy to replace the strap, and we know that this one's going to be more heavy-duty and last a lot longer than the old strap was. That does it for our look at the Dutton-Lainson hand crank winch strap. Hope this helped.

Extra heavy-duty hand winch strap and hook.


I believe this thing is strong enough to lift my boat vertically and hold it in air. It appears much higher quality than the original strap on my trailer. At each step, the company was very customer oriented and responsive to my inquiries, and following up on my order.


I used this winch all last summer for my 24' cuddy cabin boat. I am a small woman and I trailer and launch/ load the boat by myself most of the time. This winch has made it possible for me to do it! I like that I can switch gears when I need to, when the boat starts to get heavy I can switch to the low gear and crank it where I need to be without a problem. The quality is great, it is definitely a heavy duty winch. I would absolutely recommend this product. I have enclosed a picture of my truck and boat so you can see what I am using it for.


I was looking for a hand brake wench to attach to a small 6x10 tilt trailer to load a 1600lb BBQ pit I was having built and really didn't know anything about what to look at or purchase I checked out Etrailer and George gave me all the info and showed me several wenches to look at.
He knew exactly what I needed and shipped it fast to us, thanks George.


Worked as expected



Working fine. Was impressed with customer service. I had occasion to call for assistance and was put in touch with a young man named Zane. Hope he’s still there as he was most helpful. I’ve since given the company number to a few people who have needed boat winches andor parts.


Delivery mistake was corrected promptly all items came as described. Would purchase from etrailer again.


Great products and fast delivery.


Great product great price. Easily installed where the old winch was removed. This winch is heavy duty and replaced a factory install that had to be a mis-match. 5,500 lb boat and this winch can handle it fine. My old winch was 1,700 lbs. thanks


order received very quickly , winch looks solid and so does the strap. thanks for getting this to me so very quickly and thanks for the free shipping Bill

William F.


very happy it is a solid strap


This produce is well made and has worked very well for me. Installation was easy.

Terry D.


This product has been great for me. Very glad I made the purchase. It is always good to see how things work over time.


The people at etrailer are the best item was on National back order and they took my order and stayed in constant touch with me. They notified me regarding anticipated delivery date and contacted me immediately upon shipping item. Simply great customer service.


Installation is easy, did fit the winch perfectly (Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Direct Drive - 3,200 lbs product code DL15440)


I gave the winch strap a 3. It appears to be ok but it looks very thin for a 4800lb rated strap. We will see how it works.


My old strap broke and I needed one quicky to make sure my boat was secure. It was the right part and it was shipped the same day I ordered it. Had it on the trailer in just a few minutes.
Thanks Etrailer.


This is attached to our 3200 lb DL winch. Works as intended.


The winch strap that I ordered was everything I was looking for!! Very affordable and Super quick delivery!! I will be more than happy to deal with etrailer again!! THANKS!!!


Works as designed. Easy installation just need to ensure you wind it tight on installation.


Worked great, no fraying yet after weekly use for a year pulling in a heavy pontoon boat.


The Safety strap was fine, as expected.....but, the customer service was Awesome, thanks to Angela.


great product easy instructions and great customer service follow up.


etrailer is a GREAT source for quality products at a fair price. I have purchased several items, and have been very satisfied with them.


Product is as described, strong quality, reinforced stitching. Expect it to last a long time

John H.


The parts have held up well, with proper care. Our use is around salt water, typically parts can get abused by nature. Theyve performed well.


Paula in the sales dept. was extremely helpful!!
she took my order and also issued a return for some other parts that I had ordered!!
Thank you Paula for your hard work and attention


Excellent price and delivery, fit right... glad to continue with future purchases.


Multiple orders have always been accurate, well priced, and timely.

Doug O.


Product is as promoted, works great, so inexpensive, I should get one for a spare!


Great product, Quick service!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

V. M.


great mechanically, starting to show signs of rust. your zinc coating could be a little heavier and put galvanized hardware with your products they will improve the over all results and i would pay the extra cost,

  • How to Determine the Correct Sized Replacement Winch Strap
    The Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook # DL24251 has a breaking strength of 4,800 lbs. which is the highest we have. It fits hand winches with a capacity up to 3,200 lbs. (the strap rating must be 150% of the winch rating). Whether this strap works for you will depend on the weight rating of your winch. If your winch is rated for 3,200 lbs. then you can use the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook # DL24251, other wise you will want to find a strap that is 150% of your winches rating.

  • Replacement Strap for Shelby 5470A Boat Trailer Winch
    Based on my research, it does look like the Shelby 5470A can use a strap, not all winches can. The # DL24251 you were looking at would work well as a replacement strap. This is designed for hand winches with a capacity up to 3,200 lbs. It is 2" wide x 20' long and includes the mounting hardware.

  • How to Pick Out Winch Strap Length
    The length of your winch strap should be at least the winching distance required for loading the boat on the trailer. I would measure from the winch mount on your trailer back to the end of the bunks and go with a strap about that length. If that distance happens to be exactly the same length as the hull of your boat you could use that length as well. The part # DL24251 that you referenced is 20 feet in length and is 2 inches wide. I attached a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Strap for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL14725
    Yes, the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook part # DL24251 will work just fine with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL14725. However, please note that you will be limited to the weight capacity of the winch which is 2,000 lbs because it is lower than that of the strap which is 4,000 lbs but this won't cause any issues it is just something that you need to be conscious of.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Loading Cars On Car Hauler
    I recommend taking a look at the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch # DL15721. This is a really nice, self-locking brake winch that will give you added safety and control when pulling cars up and onto your car hauler. This particular winch features a 2,500 pound weight capacity, which should be more than enough for your application. Since you will be dealing with rolling loads (assuming you won't be pulling up vehicles with flat tires) this or any winch can handle more weight than its listed...

  • Winch and Strap Recommendation for Use on Boat Trailer for Bayliner Capri 2150
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 will work well for you on your boat trailer. Based on my research, your Bayliner Capri 2150 weights somewhere between 2,500 and 3,000 pounds. Usually the boat size to hand winch capacity is 2 to 1. Depending on rollers and bunks, as well as distance factors, that ratio can go up or down. When using wooden bunks and having a long winching distance, the ratio is decreased to 1 to 1. Even in these situations, the Dutton-Lainson winch # DL15440 will...

  • Choosing The Correct Replacement Boat Trailer Winch Strap For A 24' Cobalt Boat
    It can definitely be a very confusing subject when trying to determine the correct size winch and strap for your boat. The important thing to remember is that you are not lifting the entire weight of the boat but rather pulling it across the bunk boards or rollers and typically you will still have some buoyancy of the boat in the water. For bunk boards I use the 2:1 ratio. This means that the winch and strap should have a working load rating at least one half the weight of the boat to...

  • Can Boat Winch Cable be Swapped Out for Strap
    It's very possible for you to swap out your cable for a strap on your electric boat winch, but you first need to make sure that your winch is rated for use with a strap as some haven't been tested and approved for this. You should be able to verify this in your instructions/manual, but if you can't find it just let me know what winch you have and I can help you figure this out. For example, the 3K Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch # DL24870 has a 7/32" diameter x 25' long cable but...

  • Replacement Strap for Shelby 5408 Winch
    The winch straps we have available are designed to secure to the drum with a bolt like what you mentioned. I have not seen a strap that loops around the drum like what you have pictured. Your best bet is to simply go with a replacement strap that includes the needed bolt so you can attach it that way. For your Shelby 5408 winch, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson 12 Foot Long Trailer Winch Strap # DL24291. This 2 inch wide, 12 foot long strap includes the needed mounting bolt and lock nut....

  • Recommended Hand Winch for 3500 Lb ChrisCraft Sea Hawk 215
    The Dutton-Lainson # DL15440 Two Speed Winch you mentioned should be exactly what you need. As you said, you want to choose a winch whose capacity is at least 50 percent of the weight of your boat. Since the # DL15440 winch has a capacity almost equal to the weight of the boat, it will provide plenty of capacity to spare. Dutton-Lainson makes a great product, the winch should provide years of trouble-free service. I do not believe you need an electric winch, a two speed winch should be...

  • Is the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL15440, Designed for Marine Use With a 2 Inch Winch Strap
    Yes, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, # DL15440, would be a great winch for a boat trailer, especially a larger boat. The TUFFPLATE Finish makes the winch acceptable for marine use and the two speed gearing will help winch the boat in fast until the majority of the load is applied and then the handle can be moved to the lower gear and will give power to finish winching the boat onto the trailer. The correct strap for this winch is the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook,...

  • Recommended Brake Winch to Pull a Sports Car Onto a Trailer
    The Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL15721 can be used to pull a sports car onto your trailer. It has a weight capacity of 2,500 pounds. You can load and unload your sports car with minimal effort, with the load locked in place, even when handle is released. This winch is designed to work with cables or straps. I recommend the strap over the cable since you will be removing it off the winch when there is no load. A strap is much easier to remove versus a cable when there isn't a load. A good...

  • Recommended Replacement Strap for Shelby 5408 Winch
    The Shelby 5408 used a 2" strap, so you would only need one with the appropriate break strength and length. I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook # DL24251 which has a break strength of 4,800 lbs and is 20' long. If you wanted a different length, there is also a 25' strap, # DL24249, and a 15' strap, # DL24239, both of which have a break strength of 4,000 lbs. I've added links to video reviews of all three straps for you to take a look at.

  • 2 Inch Wide Winch Strap Option For Shelby 1,400 lb Winch
    We may have an option that works as a replacement strap, though since Shelby is out of business we can't verify a fit. But we do have a 2 inch wide strap with a bolt that has the capacity you need for your 1,400 lb capacity Shelby 5405: - Winch Strap with Hook - 2" x 15' - 2,600 lbs # DL6148 This is a 15 foot strap and uses a winch bolt that measures 3" long and 3/8" in diameter; hopefully you can use that and compare it to your strap to see if it will work.

    We sure do, you'd need the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap, part # DL24251. The strap is 20 feet long and plenty of capacity for your winch. If you wanted a strap that's a little longer, you can use part # DL24249 which at 25 feet, is the longest strap that can be used on your winch.

  • Does Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch W/ Brake DL15721 Include A Winch Cable Or Strap?
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake - TUFFPLATE Finish - 2,500 lbs # DL15721 you were looking at does not include a cable or strap. You will need either the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 5/16" Diameter x 25' Long # DL24102 or the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2" Wide x 20' Long # DL24251. I included videos for each of the products mentioned for you to take a look at.

  • Availability of Replacement Handle for Fulton Model 881 Winch
    According to our contact at Fulton, replacement parts for your Fulton Model 881 Winch are no longer available from the manufacturer. We do not currently have a replacement handle available that will fit this winch. Since replacement parts are going to be hard to come by, I recommend looking into replacing the winch with a newer model.

  • Does Dutton Lainson Winch part DL15440 Come with Strap or Cable
    The strap or cable would be sold separately from the Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15440. For a strap you would want the part # DL24251 or for a cable part # DL24104. The strap is 20 feet long and has a 4,800 lb capacity. The cable is 50 feet long and has a 3,500 lb capacity.

    To replace the strap on your Fulton F2 item # FW16000101 you will want the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2" Wide x 20' Long item # DL24251. This has a breaking strength of 4,800 lbs and has the clasp at the end of the hook.

  • Can a Winch Cable Be Replaced with a Hand Winch Strap On a 2006 Aluminum Loadrite Trailer
    With a 5,200 pound rated trailer and a 4500 pound boat you are getting to the upper end of the capacity rating for winches with a strap. That is most likely why your winch has a cable installed on it. Some winches are set up so that a cable or a strap with hook can be used. If a strap, item # DL24251, can be used on your winch there will be holes in the cable drum sides, directly across from each other, to put a bolt through that the strap attaches to.

    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.

  • Winch Recommendation to Pull Boat Trailer Up Hill
    On the Dutton Lainson # DL15721, the ratchet style two-way means that you will be able to ratchet the load in or let it out by ratcheting the handle, so when letting a load out the weight of the load will not just totally let go. This would be the style of winch I would recommend for your application. For a cable you'd then want the part # DL24102 which is 25 feet long. You'd have to attach the winch to the top of your post as the bottom of the winch is the mounting bracket. I wish we...
