- DL10954
by:

A great hand winch. I’m using two, one to llift a lawn roller and the other to lift a lawn aerator into the rafters in the garage when not in use to open up some floor space. I swapped out the loop drive for the hex drive to speed up the lifting process. They have no problems lifting either of these lawn tools because neither weighs more than 100 lbs. one concern I have is that there is no way to secure the cable to the drum. The instructions show 3holes in the drum to loop the cable through and back onto itself. The drums I have have only one hole. Running the cable over itself seems to be working, but I would feel more confident if it was secured better. Rather than just friction holding the cable in. 512480

I purchased two of the DL10954 units to hang a Kayak and Paddleboard above my vehicle in my garage. The units were heavy duty, much more than I expected. I have added some pictures of my installation. Now anyone in the family can lower them and get to them when needed. Thanks Mark 441157

  • 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.

  • Worm Gear Winch and Hoist Recommendations to Lift a 50 Pound Kayak
    At 1,500 pounds capacity worm gear winch # DL10954 is the lowest capacity available. Speed is an issue with worn gear winches because they allow for the precise movement of a load. If you used # DL11011 with a series of pulleys you could mount the winch lower and operate it with a power drill to speed things up significantly. Regarding pulling 2 lines in at the same time the preferred method would be to use pulleys and one line feeding in to the winch though you might find success using...

  • Recommended Replacement Hoist Winch for Shore Station
    To replace the brake winch on your Shore Station. I recommend looking at the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10954, which is designed more for hoisting/lifting a load like what it looks like you are needing. This winch has a weight capacity of 1,500 pounds and features laminated high carbon steel gears that are heat treated for a longer lifespan. You can also use a standard brake winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14934 that has a 1,200 pound capacity, just keep in...

  • Winch Recommendation for Hoisting a Jeep Top to the Ceiling
    Only one style of winch would I recommend for hoisting something from the ceiling. I recommend a worm gear winch, # DL10954, that you can mount on the ceiling and use an extension pole to turn the loop drive handle. Place this winch centered above where you would lift the top so you will not have to use pulley blocks to get a straight line pull. Worm gear winches will brake automatically if you release the handle which is nice. You will also need a secondary support system to actually...

  • 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.

  • Winch Recommendation to Use as Hoist for Lifting Sign into Air
    The only style of winch we offer that can be used to hoist something safely into the air is a worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - Worm Gear - Loop Drive - Ceiling Mount # DL10954 that was actually designed to mount on the ceiling and hoist something into the air like you mentioned wanting to do. I attached a picture of two of these mounted on a ceiling for you to check out as well. For a cable then you'd want the part # DL24104.

  • Can Worm Gear Winch be Used for Lifting Things Off of the Ground
    Worm gear winches actually make the best hoists like what you described. The Dutton Lainson Worm Gear winch part # DL10954 is a ceiling hoist designed for exactly what you are looking for. It has a 1,500 lb lifting capacity and mounts to the ceiling.

  • Worm Gear Recommendation for Lifting 500 lbs From Ceiling
    Ratchet straps aren't designed for lifting. Their ratings are for the weight they can secure. Since they aren't setup for lifting it would be incredibly difficult to try and crank the ratchet if not totally impossible. For a winch the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10954 would work great as it has more than enough capacity. It also can be mounted to the ceiling to allow the winch to hoist the weight easier.

It also can be mounted to the ceiling to allow the winch to hoist the engine easier.

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation for Use as a Ceiling Hoist
    We have had this question before and our jack manufacturers don't rate their jacks for them to be used basically to retract weight as opposed to lift it. Your best option would be a ceiling hoist worm gear winch like the Dutton Lainson part # DL10954 which is rated for 1,500 lbs. I attached a review video for this hoist for you to check out as well.

  • Winch Recommendation for Ceiling Hoist with Automatic Brake
    For that application you will want a worm gear winch like the Dutton Lainson Ceiling Mount part # DL10954 this is the best and safest winch we offer that you can use as a ceiling hoist that automatically applies a "brake" when you stop cranking the winch. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well. For a cable then you'd want the part # DL24104.

  • If Handle of Worm Gear Winch is Let Go Does Winch Handle Move
    Worm gear winches by design are brake winches so if you let go of the handle it hold the weight in the exact position. Since it's a screw that rides on a gear the release of the handle does not force the handle to move and it actually locks it in place. The lowest rated version of a worm gear winch is the part # DL10954 which has a 1,500 lb capacity and is already setup to be a ceiling hoist like you are wanting as well. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Winch Recommendation for Hoisting a 300 lb Motor
    You would want a Worm Gear Winch like the part # DL10954 that can be used as a hoist. The Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch # DL15850 that you referenced is not rated for lifting things off the ground. Dutton Lainson states that this winch is not to be used as hoists for lifting, supporting or transporting people, or for loads over areas where people can be present.

  • 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...

Another solution you may like is the Thule MultiLift Cargo Lift part # TH572 which is designed for storing a canoe like what you have on the ceiling.

  • 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...

  • Recommendation for a Winch to Load a Harley Davidson Motorcycle into a Cargo Trailer
    You would need to consult a qualified welder to have a mount fabricated that will allow you rotate the handle 360 degrees on a hand winch. We do not stock any bolt on parts that are heavy enough to be used to mount a winch safely in this case, and you would need to tie the mount into the trailer frame for stability. We have a Universal Hand Winch Right Angle Mounting Bracket, item # DL24110, which would make the fabrication of the raised mount easier. An option I would look at, would...

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation For Lifting 500 lbs Off of the Ground
    I have a solution for you, but we have had a similar question come in the past and our jack manufacturers cannot recommend you use the leg of a jack as a lift. Your best option is going to be a worm gear winch like the part # DL10954 that can be set up to be used as a ceiling hoist.

  • What is the Best Winch To Use for Hoisting
    Ideally, for hoisting, you would use a worm gear winch such as # DL10954 which you would mount on a ceiling and use a locally obtained rod and hook to turn the handle. A Heavy duty variable speed drill 1/2" shaft, using 5/8" socket, may speed up operation. A ratcheting winch will ratchet up and work well when there is limited space, but it will only ratchet in. When release it will just drop the load. A worm gear winch is the best option since it automatically will brake when the...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation to Hoist a Kayak Up to Garage Ceiling
    Dutton Lainson hand winch # DL14125 could be used for hoisting up a kayak but because this winch does not have a brake to lower the load you would have to go into freewheel mode and the load will fall. There are different types of winches that are much better for this application. I recommend a worm gear winch, # DL10954, that you can mount on the ceiling and use an extension pole to turn the loop drive handle. Place this winch centered above where you would lift the kayak so you will...

  • How Does the Erickson Lift Sling for PWC # # EM02000 Work
    We don't have a demo video for the Erickson Lift Sling # EM02000 that shows how it works yet, but I can describe to you how it works. Basically you would hook the bracket with the three hooks to the sides of the PWC under the lip around the edge of it and then using a ceiling hoist winch like the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10954 slowly raise the PWC off of the ground. You should note this isn't designed as a permanent storage system for the PWC.

    You would want a Worm Gear Winch like the part # DL10954 that can be used as a hoist. Worm gear winches are really the only type of hand winch that is designed to work well with hoisting items off of the ground and suspending them. This winch has a 1,500 lb capacity so it would make easy work of your 500 lb load. For cable the part # DL24104 is 50 feet long and has more than enough capacity.

  • Best Type of Winch to Lift Truck Canopy
    The type of winch to use for safely lifting your truck canopy is a worm gear winch. Worm gear winches are more powerful than ones that use planetary gears and with a worm gear winch the weight of the load cannot reverse the direction of pull. If you want an overhead mount we offer the 1500-lb Dutton-Lainson # DL10954 which includes a loop drive. You can use this with 50-foot cable # DL24104.
