Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - DL10950 Review

Today were going to take a look at the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch part number DL10950. This is a perfect product for applications requiring safe controlled movement of load. There is no free will mode, no special mechanism required to stop gear movement and this does not require a minimum load for operation. It has a weight capacity of 1500 lbs. The capacity is based on a direct line pull on the first layer of line on the drum. Capacity is reduced as the line builds up on the drum.

It features a laminated high carbon steel gear that is heat treated for longer life. It has a heavy gauge embossed steel base for extra strength. It is handle-driven as you can see here. The handle does come with this item. It is 7 inches long from here to here.

It has a powder coated copper bronze finish. It has a five year limited warranty and it is made right here in the US. Taking a look at some of the specifications, again, the rated capacity for this item is 1500 lbs. The drum hub diameter is 1-1/2 inches. It has a gear ratio of 30:1 meaning 30 turns of the crank will result in a single rotation of the gear.

The maximum mechanical advantage is 240 and the maximum drum capacity for cable is 1/4 inch x 43 ft. This item is not intended for a strap. That should do it for our Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch part number DL10950.

Manual hoist was perfect for my intended use. I assembled a lift for my full-sized fiberglass pickup bed cap (abt 300 lbs). Very well built unit...lifted cap with no effort utilizing 30:1 ratio. Price was good considering alternatives. The best part of the etrailer experience was the customer service. Amazon could learn a thing or two. Absolutely outstanding communication and product knowledge. I even asked it there were any discounts and they gave me 5% off. Product was well packaged and arrived within 3 business days. I'll definitely shop etrailer again. 217825

Still works perfect after a year. Just keep a bit of grease on the gears.

The application for the winch is one that required the handle on the top of the winch to keep from having interferrence with the cranking handle. The gear ratio is quite different in that it takes more cranks of the handle to make a full revolution of the spool but with a tip from the manufacturer to use a 1/2" drill instead of the handle it makes set up time much faster and easier. 96253

I purchased this winch for a lifting system for my 8’ fiberglass pickup truck canopy. The worm drive winch was easy to install and I used 1/8 inch steel cable to rig the lift system for the canopy. My canopy weighs just over 200 LBS and it is very easy to load and install the canopy on my truck. The winch is designed for cable and the best feature is that when you release the handle of the winch it stays exactly where its at. It’s a great winch and I would recommend it for any items in it’s weight range. 678754

I haven't actually used this winch, but it looks like it is as advertised. It is much bigger though than I originally thought. It looks like the measurements are correct on the page, but it is much more imposing than I had anticipated. Overall though, it looks like a solid winch. 209580

Picked up this winch to use primarily for camper shell storage in the garage. Maybe lift other lighter items as needed. I went for the worm drive for its controlled release and hold ability. The winch fit the bill perfectly. My only minor gripe is that the site doesn't mention that a cable fastener isn't needed (such as DL 24361) and if I remember correctly there aren't instructions in the box on how to affix the cable. There is a handy how to vid on this site but took a few minutes of digging to find. 131026

Well, between getting the old fixture down from 22 feet high and getting this one up, this was quite a project. However, with a little ingenuity and the help of a wench from etrailer.com (model DL10950), we now have an amazing chandelier. We could not be happier with this purchase and the quick shipment. I enclosed a few pictures of assembly and final installation. 114208

Even though it is more winch than I really needed, I can highly recommend this unit. In the application I am using them, they needed to be mounted to a wall to raise and lower some heavy lighting units so the worm gear really makes that convenient. As over-built as this is they should last for many years. I can also highly recommend the people at etrailer.com. The product was shipped the next day (I placed the order late at night) and they have been very helpful in keeping me informed on the arrival of the units that were backordered. Thanks guys! 31370

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

Do you have a question about this Trailer Winch?


  • Are Cable Fasteners Sold Separately from the Worm Gear Hand Winches by Dutton-Lainson
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch - 1,500 lbs, item # DL10950, is designed only to be used with wire cable. The cable fasteners are sold separately based on what size cable you plan on using. If the cable size you plan on using is 1/4, 9/32 or 5/16 of an inch you would want a Cable Fastener # DL24362. If you plan on using a cable that is 3/16, 7/32 or 1/4 inch you would want a Cable Fastener # DL24361. I attached a page that has all of the wire cables we offer for you to check out.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Hoisting 110 Lb Chandelier
  • To raise and lower a chandelier, I would recommend using an automatic brake winch like the Pro Series # PSKR10000301. The winch has a 1000 lb capacity, which would be plenty for a 110 lb chandelier. The drum of the winch can store up to 50 feet of 7/32 inch cable, which is sold separately as part # FWC7500100. A worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson # DL10950 would also work, but due to its 30:1 gear ratio, you would be cranking forever.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Lifting Kayak to Ceiling
  • We do have some brake winches that have no minimum load requirements, but they won't have enough spool capacity for 50 feet of 1/4 inch rope. I do have a worm gear winch that would work for you, part # DL11001. The winch has a 49 foot drum capacity for cable up to 9/32 of an inch. Since that's a tad larger than a 1/4 inch, your 50 feet of rope would fit. In lieu of the handle, you could use a heavy duty variable speed drill with a 5/8 inch socket. This would make raising an lowering...

  • Attaching a Wire Rope to Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch DL10950 with a Cable Keeper
  • On this particular set up (winch # DL10950 and keeper # DL24362 the cable would not go through the hole in the drum. It would have to stay to the inside. The part of the keeper with the hole in it would be sticking through to the inside with the nut between the outside of the drum and the large gear. So the only thing between the gear and drum is the nut (and washer).

  • Using Worm Gear Winch Versus Brake Winch for Hoisting Small Dinghy
  • If you are wanting to use a drill to ease operation of the winch, the Dutton-Lainson # DL11011 would be a much better choice. This winch is specifically designed so that the handle is easily removable for use with a drill. Using the shaft directly connected to the drill chuck is not recommended, but the input shaft has a hexagonal cross-section, that can be used with a 5/8 inch socket or driver attached to a drill. Keep in mind that the 1500 lb capacity for the jack is based on having...

  • Recommended Manual and Powered Winch Options for Tandem Axle Car Hauler Trailer
  • A winch that is pulling a load up a 35-degree incline needs to be rated higher that one pulling on a level surface. As the incline increases, the weight a winch can pull decreases. This steep incline requires a winch rated for approximately 1-1/2-times the load's actual weight. To pull a 3500-lb load up this incline you need a winch rated for 5500-lbs. The linked articles on winches will give you more detail about winch types and capacities. The manual brake winches we offer are rated...

  • Could Worm Gear Winch Be Installed on Floor of Trailer for Securing ATV
  • The Dutton Lainson winch part # DL10950 is a worm gear winch that because of it's design always has a brake applied to it when not in use. If you wanted to mount it to the floor of your trailer and then use it to secure the ATV there's no reason it wouldn't work for you. It has more than enough capacity at 1,500 lbs.

  • Hand Winch Recommendation for Raising and Lowering a Draw Bridge
  • The Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch part # DL10950 that you referenced would do an excellent job. This is the only style of hand winch we offer that is safe to use to suspend items in the air. This winch also does not have a free wheel option, so under no circumstances would it ever come crashing down. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well.

  • Winch Recommendations for Lifting Canoes and Kayaks to Storage Position
  • For lifting and storing your canoes and kayaks, you will want to use either a worm gear or a brake winch. Worm gear and Brake winches, see links, prevent runaway loads, and do not have a free spool mode. The pulling winch you selected would not be the best choice for your application, because it could potentially release the load if not operated safely. I would recommend a worm gear winch for ease of operation. The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, # DL10950, or # DL10954, would...

  • Can a Strap be used on the # DL10950 Worm Gear Hand Winch
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch - 1,500 lbs, item # DL10950, is designed only to be used with wire cable and a strap cannot be used with this winch. None of the worm gear winches that we stock are designed to be used with a strap. You may be interested in the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Self-Locking - 1,500 lbs, item # DL14996, which can be used with the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, 2 inch Wide x 25 foot Long - 4,000 lbs., item # DL24249.

  • Worm Gear Hand Winch and Strap to Lift a 50 lb Rooftop Carrier Off of a 2012 Honda Accord
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, # DL10950, cannot be used with a nylon strap. This is a cable only application that would work well to raise and lower your 50 lb rooftop carrier if your set up allows use of a cable If your set up requires a strap, you could use the Dutton-Lainson WG2000 Worm Gear Hand Winch, # DL11002. This is the only worm gear hand winch we offer that will accept a strap and it has a rated capacity of 2,000 lbs. This winch requires a 2 inch wide strap like...

  • Does the Dutton Lainson Worm Gear Winch Crank In and Out
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10950 that you referenced cranks one way to to reel in the cable and the other way to let it out. To deal with the high angle your cable comes in at you could angle how you mount the # DL10950 so that the handle clears. You might have to come up with a custom mount for the winch so that everything clears.

  • Brake Winch Recommendation that Does not Make Ratcheting Sound
  • The only brake winch style that would not make the ratcheting sound you are referring to is a worm gear winch. For a similarly rated winch to the # DL14934 that you referenced you would want the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10950. I attached a review video for this winch plus an FAQ on winches for you to check out.

  • Recommended Brake Winch for Use on Ramped Utility Trailer for Loading 3000-lb Tractor
  • The best type of winch for your application is a brake winch, which automatically stops the drum's rotation when you stop cranking. This will be the safest type for your trailer and also will be easier to crank. A wheeled vehicle like a car or tractor is considered a rolling load in the winch world and this places less stress on the winch than a non-wheeled item. The degree of incline on your ramps has an effect on winch capacity. On level ground a winch can pull a rolling load 10 times...

  • How to Release Load or Play Out Cable with Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10950
  • You are correct, the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch you referenced, part # DL10950 does not have a freewheel mode. The cable or load stops when you stop cranking. To reverse or lower the load, you would crank the handle in the opposite direction, thus playing out the cable. To remove the line, you would fully reverse the handle to play out all of the cable, and then remove the nut from the cable fastener. Keep in mind that the cable and cable fastener are not included with the winch....

  • Availability of Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring Like # ERS160D96 With 300-lb Lift Capacity
  • The M-3 Enclosed Trailer Ramp Spring that you referenced, part # ERS160D96, has a 160-lb capacity and this is the highest-rated of all such available items. If you decide to replace your ailing winch with a new one I suggest a brake winch or a worm gear winch since both of these types will prevent the ramp from free-falling. A economical brake winch is the MaxxTow Positive Lock Hand Winch # MT70176 that comes with a 25-foot strap and that has a 1000-lb capacity. For a worm gear winch...

  • Lighter Duty Worm Gear Winch Availability
  • The smallest rated worm gear winch we have is 1,500 lbs like the part # DL10950 that you referenced. While this is a bit overkill for the weight you need it would still work well. For a 25 foot long cable you'd then want the part # DL24100.

  • Recommended Winch for Raising and Lowering a Draw Bridge
  • I have attached the review video of the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL10950 to this answer page for you. The video can be found in the middle of the page under the "Featured Help Information" heading. As mentioned, the above worm gear winch does not have freewheel feature therefore so long as you are under the 1,500 lb weight capacity it will work perfectly for you. If you don't already have a cable I recommend using the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook part # DL24100.
