Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - DL11002 Review

Today, we're going to review part number DL11002. This is the Dutton-Lainson worm gear hand winch for 2 inch winch straps. The Dutton-Lainson worm gear winches are used when your application requires a safe, controlled movement of loads. Basically, this reel will automatically stop turning whenever your cranking is stopped. There is no free wheel mode. There is no special mechanism that is required to stop the gear movement and it does not require a minimum load for operation. It is mounted.

This reel is mounted on a heavy gauged embossed steel base for extra strength and it uses permanently lubricated bearings on the drive shaft and they're maintenance free. It does have a nice powder coated black finish. It does come with the crank handle. Comes with the bolt and the nut for attaching the strap to the reel, and basically, your handle, you would just unscrew your nut there, put your handle on, tighten your nut down. This is a lock nut so you would actually tighten it down more. We don't want to do that right now because it would lock.

Anyway, you can see as you turn this handle, you can see the gear has slow control movement. The capacity on this winch is 2,000 pounds. The gear ratio is 40 to one, so basically, it takes 40 cranks to turn this reel one revolution. It does use laminated, high carbon steel gears, which are heat treated for long life. It does not come with a strap, but we do recommend, and it's listed on this product page as a related product. It is the Dutton-Lainson hand winch strap, part number DL24242 and it is 2 inches wide to fit on the reel and 20 feet long. That should do it for the review on part number DL11002, the Dutton-Lainson worm gear hand winch for 2 inch winch straps.

I ended up purchasing two of these Dutton's. I have a smaller Alumucraft Boat so I used these two winches to raise my boat out of the water at my dock. It was by far cheaper than a sling lift kit. Unfortunately I have very shallow water at winter pool and this worked perfect to get the boat up out of the water. Great Service, Great Product, easy to use, what else can I say. 445413

I haven't installed it yet but, it looks like a good product. The gentleman I spoke with also was great. 179284

Do you have a question about this Trailer Winch?

  • Worm Gear Winch for Car Hauler Trailer
  • The type of manual winch I suggest for your car trailer is a worm gear type which prevents the car from rolling backwards even if you let go of the handle. Winch capacity for your application with a rolling load on an incline does not need be very high. As an example, a 2500-lb rolling load on a 10% incline requires only a 500-lb-rated winch. Please refer to the linked article. The Dutton-Lainson 2K Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11004 can be operated either by the included handle or with...

  • Availability of Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Brake Winch That Can Use Strap as well as Cable
  • We offer worm gear brake winches in various ratings but all are higher than 800-lbs. Our worm gear winches can be seen on the linked page and you'll note their capacities range from 1500- to 3,000-lbs. These are all designed specifically for a cable, such as # DL11011, or for a 2-inch strap, such as # DL11002. The strap for this winch is part # DL24242.

  • Will the Hex Shaft # DL406102 work on a Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11002
  • The Hex Shaft for Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winches # DL406102 that you referenced is designed to fit Dutton-Lainson worm gear winches so yes, it will work on the Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11002 that you referenced. However, this product is designed to work with 5/8 inch sockets and would not work with your 1/2 inch socket. You will need to order this product separately as it is not included with the # DL11002. I attached an FAQ article on hand winches for you to check out also.

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation for RIB Inflatable Dingy on a Yacht
  • For a worm gear winch that you can use with a strap instead of a cable I recommend # DL11002. You could then use strap # DL24242. You will need to add the hex shaft, # DL406102, in place of the standard shaft to use a variable speed drill with the winch. Worm gear winches are slow and you are bound to get tired moving the load even a few feet so a drill is the way to go. Your 18 volt drill should be more than enough to lift the load. I do not recommend an impact driver because it is...

  • Hand Winch for Use with Lightweight Loads
  • In cases where the weight of the load on the winch is too low to properly engage the winch brake you can use a worm gear winch instead. This type of winch uses a screw mechanism to operate the load. The weight of the load cannot cause the winch to reverse direction so no brake mechanism is needed at all. The linked page displays our range of worm gear winches. You have a choice of poly strap or wire rope models, but for a marine environment I suggest the strap type, either part # DL11004...

  • Will The Dutton-Lainson Winch # DL14730 Work For Loading a 600 LB Motorcycle on Trailer
  • The winch you referenced is the Dutton-Lainson Winch, part # DL14730. It has a capacity of 2000 lbs, so it will certainly handle the 600 lbs you mentioned the motorcycle weighs. This winch features a reversible ratchet, and has a quick attach handle. I would also recommend the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, part # DL24249. This strap is 2 inches wide and 25 feet long, and has the safety hook attached. The strap has a capacity of 2600 lbs. If you would be interested in an electric...

  • 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...

  • Is a Strap Reel Available for Dutton-Lainson Model WG2000 Winch?
  • I took a look at each of the parts we carry for Dutton-Lainson winches such as your # DL10970 and went on to search elsewhere and unfortunately I could not find a reference to that part anywhere, nor was I able to locate a strap that is recommended to be used with that winch. That winch is designed to be used with cables and I recommend instead of modifying that winch you instead get one designed for use with a strap such as the Dutton-Lainson # DL11002.

  • Will the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch # DL11001 Accept a Strap
  • We do have a worm gear winch that will accept a strap, however the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11001, is for use with a cable or rope only. Instead, take a look at the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Winch, # DL11002. This winch is basically the same winch as # DL11001 that you referenced, but it has a drum that was designed to accept the bolt that secures the strap to the winch. If you need a strap, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap, # DL24242.

  • Can Winch Strap Be Used On Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL11011
  • The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive Handle # DL11011 referenced in your question is designed specifically for use with a cable like # DL24100. A strap cannot be used with this particular model winch. For a similar style, worm gear hand winch that is designed to be used with a strap, I recommend the Dutton Lainson # DL11002. This has a slightly larger capacity of 2,000 pounds when compared to the model you were looking at and can be used with the winch strap # DL24242....
