This Dutton-Lainson single-speed, light-duty winch is designed for multipurpose horizontal pulling operations.


The description of this item is confusing; it states both wire rope & polyester strap leading me to think that it may include the rope/strap. This is also furthered by images showing the winch with the nylon strap. Before placing my order I contacted customer service and asked them twice, I was told by one person that the strap was included. I was also told that if it was missing for whatever reason they'd send me the strap. Another person, via phone, told me that it was not included.

At this point it was either place the order and possibly be missing the strap, or place the order and have an extra strap for no reason which I would have to ship back on my dime to return.

I placed my order just for the winch, banking that the first customer service person was correct and the strap was included. When I received the order and no strap was included I contacted customer service and was told that I was misinformed by one of their customer service reps and that they could send me a prepaid shipping label to return it. I then asked if instead I could get some sort of discount or free shipping on placing the order for the strap I needed for the winch, since I was given the wrong info. I was told no both via chat and phone. Customer support would rather pay to ship the item back to them, rather than giving me free shipping on my new order for the strap and also gain an additional sale. Makes no sense to me.

Overall this item gets one star because of the poor description/images. Hopefully etrailer updates this listing, or at least this review helps someone get all the right parts they need without having to reorder/wait longer.

I am so sorry for this confusion. I have confirmed that we have updated the information on our site for this item. For future reference, you would need to order a strap like part # DL24239 along with the winch.


Got the product. Looks just like the picture and works just like a winch.
I have an elevated house on the Texas Coast and I plan on using this winch to hoist my kayak up from driveway under the house to the crossbeams supporting the house. Will mount the winch on one of the pillar post with lag bolts, fasten the rope from the kayak hoist to the winch, and turn the handle. No pulling or lifting.


Combined bunk rollers and a keel roller (along with winch and lumber) to create a way to lift and store our 22' kayak. Works like a dream, though the winch does show some slight signs of rust. Not a huge surprise given our location on salt water.


Winch is well made. A great value. I've installed it on my garage wall and using it to hoist my kayaks up to the ceiling where they are stored. Works great! Now I don't need a second person to help.


Came with a cable with clamp, which was unexpected. I will use with a strap which mounts to the wheel with a bolt, which was include with the strap, which I had to cut shorter by a 1/4 to clear the winch rotation.


I am extremely happy with the quality of your hitch and that it is American made!

I am going to mount it to use as the mechanism to raise and lower my fish basket into the lake!



Couldnt be better


Priced right and arrived quickly. Perfect replacement for my aluminum boat trailer.



Good product. Still working perfectly.


These are used with an external tent trailer pole and rope lift system sold here locally in Oregon City Oregon. They worked flawlessly last year- stone axe simple. That's a good thing! Will be used again in a couple of weeks. So much more reliable than the ridiculously complex internal cable hoist. What a broken, snarled up mess! I pulled them all out and just use these now!


Box was beaten up but no damage to ite ms


The winch arrived promptly and was easy to install; I have used it for a year without any trouble. In May the winch post on my trailer broke and I had to replace it. The winch was easily moved to the new winch post and work perfectly.

The winch continues to work great!


Great replacement winch for my small sailboat trailer. The cogs in my old winch were broken, so having a smooth working winch is amazing. The swiveling plastic ergonomic handle is much better than my old bent steel bar handle. Dimensions of the winch mounting holes on the website would have been helpful. I ended up having to drill a 3/8" hole in my trailer frame to mount it, which was not a problem, but it just wasn't a quick bolt-on replacement.


I bought this as an exact replacement for the damaged winch on my small boat trailer. Very well constructed and was easy to install. Haven't used it yet, but don't expect any issues either.
I bought the 2" wide x 15' long strap made by DL as well. Strap fit nice and was perfect length, but it did not come with correct bolt to use with this winch.


I ordered the trailer winch as part of the school project for my daughter. The winch which was needed to pull a smaller weight was more than she needed but in general the winch was of great quality and worked out very well. Worked out well! Thank you.


This little,winch is going to the Goats, show goats that is. A few cranks of the handle will raise Jello. my contending Grand Champion Full Blood Boer nanny in her grooming lift for a final brushing before the big show.
Perfect little winch, at the right price for this run of grooming stands. Pics available later.
I'll be back for more.

I bought the winch last spring specifically to attempt to straighten up a 25 foot tall spruce tree that had been bent over by high winds. Using the winch, wire cable and a little engineering to moor the winch, the task was successfully completed and the tree is doing just fine.


Used winch to replace large umbrella plastic geared crank. Very solid winch, compact, and solved my problem of old crank breaking. Lokks like this will last a lifetime.


Item DL14125 is a good item and it will work for me but I was hoping the reel had a slightly larger capacity. It is made with good material.

I made a small derrick and bolted the winch to it to raise my pump and piping from my water well. I am using 1/4 inch poly rope and the reel will hold only 50 feet of rope tightly rung.


I replaced a 20 year old winch on my trailer with this product. Although I had to drill a new hole to mount, the operation of the winch is flawless. I also odered a winch strap to replace the rope on my old winch. One problem, the strap needed to be mounted to the winch with a screw, that was not provided. It would have made things easier if the screw had been included!


Am very happy with what l got. Am using it to fix my large free standing unbrula. The regular device that makes it go up and down somehow malfunctioned. Because it is a sealed unit completely enclosed, l had to cut into the metal. Took the cord that goes up through the center of the arm out. Put a couple pulleys on and used your wench to make it go up and down.


Nice replacement item. The 20ft strap will not fit on this model though I would have gotten the 15ft strap for this unit.


Nice replacement item. The 20ft strap will not fit on this model though I would have gotten the 15ft strap for this unit.


Good winch. Handle can only be installed on one side only (left); not a huge problem, but it would be nice to have the option to install the handle on either side


These guys do a great job! Quick shipping and right every time. Good quality merchandise too. I will order from them any time I need something for the trailers.


I have purchased several items recently from etrailer while refurbishing my boat trailer....products have all been excellent and very is prompt and I am pleased to recommend their in the business.


Plain and to the point would be.
IN THE USA" Dam Happy for that!

  • How to Pick Out a Winch for a 1,000 lb Boat
    Generally when picking out a winch for a boat trailer the ratio is 2 to 1 meaning you would need a winch with roughly half the capacity as the weight of the boat. With good rollers and a short winching distance the ratio increases to 3 to 1, but with long winching distances and wooden bunks like what you currently have the ratio is 1 to 1. The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125 should work well for you. It has a 600 lb capacity and has a small enough mounting plate that it should fit...

  • Small Winch to Use for Lifting 4 lbs in Treehouse
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125 that you referenced only ratchets when pulling the cable in. To let the cable out you would push the pawl down and it will allow the handle to free-wheel in either direction. At this point you would hold the handle and rotate it so that the winch feeds the cable out. For something that only weighs 4 lbs this shouldn't be a problem. I attached a review video for this winch to show you how it operates as well.

  • How Does Feed Out of Dutton Lainson Winch # DL14125 Work
    With the Dutton Lainson Hand Winch part # DL14125 when you release the ratchet it would free-wheel as it feeds out. So to control the feed out you'd want to use the crank handle in reverse with the ratchet releasing it.

  • Does the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Part DL14125 Have Just A Ractchet Action For Winding In
    I walked out to the warehouse and looked at Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, part # DL14125, to verify. Yes, part # DL14125 has a ratchet action that clicks into each gear while turning in the wind-in direction, but for wind-out, just spins without stopping. There is a lever on the unit that you must turn down to wind-out, the handle turns as you wind-in or wind-out.

  • Will Dutton Lainson Winch # DL14125 Fit on Champion Boat Trailer Winch Plate
    Dutton Lainson trailer winches like the # DL14125 have bolt patterns that are designed to fit the standard bolt pattern the winch mount on your boat trailer would have so this will work for you. Most of the holes are slotted on the plate of this winch which allows for variances as well.

  • Replacement Handle for Dutton-Lainson DL600a Hand Winch
    I believe you meant to type DL600a for your Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch model, which is our part # DL14125. For this particular winch the correct replacement handle is part # DL5703657. If you need 6 of these handles you just need to type that number in the quantity box when checking out and you're good to go! I have attached a short video review on the handle that you can check out as well.

  • What Type of Winch Could be Used as a Wall Mounted Hoist to Lift E-Bike
    For a ceiling or wall hoist setup you'd have to use a worm gear winch like the part # DL11011 as it's only brake winch option that would be able to hoist something off the ground like you are wanting.

  • Winch Strap Width and How Connected on part# DL14125
    For a strap for winch # DL14125 you will need 2 inch wide strap # DL24239. It is rated for 4,000 pounds and is 15 feet long. To attach a cable all you have to do is locate the set of elongated holes on the drum closest to the center of the drum. The strap comes with a bolt and nut. The bolt goes through one hole, through the loop in the strap, and through the other hole. The nut secure it on the other side. The nut should be on the gear side.

  • Recommended Hand Winch to Load and Unload a 500 lb Motorcycle on a Trailer
    The hand winch that I recommend for you to use so that you can load and unload your 500 lb motorcycle effortlessly is the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14125. This winch is rated for 600 lbs and it has a gear ratio of 3.2:1. It can be used with either a 61 foot x 15/32 inch cable or a 16 foot x 2 inch strap. An appropriate strap to use with this winch would be the Hand Winch Strap with Safety Hook, part # DL24239, which is 15 feet long x 2 inches wide and is rated...

  • 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.

    We definitely have a really good winch for your specific application with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125.

  • 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 handle...

  • Winch Recommendation for a PWC Trailer
    Sorry to hear about your Sea Doo falling off your trailer! When picking out a boat or PWC winch the general rule of thumb is that you need a winch with a 2 to 1 capacity for the weight of the watercraft. So since 500 kg equals right at 1,100 lbs and everything we offer is rated in lbs you would want at least a 550 lb rated winch. The Dutton Lainson winch part # DL14125 has a 600 lb capacity and would work well for you. I attached a link to a review video for this winch for you to check...

  • Using the 3/16 Hand Winch Cable with the Dutton & Lainson Single Speed Hand Winch
    If you are planning on using the 3/16 inch Hand Winch Cable, part # DL24043, or any 3/16 inch cable, with the Dutton & Lainson Single Speed 600lb Hand Winch, part # DL14125, you will need a 3/16 inch fastener. I recommend the 3/16 inch Cable Fastener, part # DL24360.

  • Can Crank of Dutton-Lainson # DL14125 Hand Winch Be Operated With a Drill or Impact Driver
    Dutton-Lainson doesn't recommend using a drill or driver to operate a standard winch such as the # DL14125. However, they do offer a worm gear winch, part # DL11004 that can be operated using a drill with a 5/8 inch socket. Because it's a worm gear winch, there's no need to worry about the winch spooling out or freewheeling if you lose your grip on the drill, which is a highly important safety feature. If you stop turning the shaft, the reel will stop in place. This winch is compatible...

  • 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...

  • 1/4 inch Winch Cable Recommendation for Dutton Lainson Winch
    We have 1/4 inch winch cable for a Dutton Lainson winch like the part # DL24104 which is 50 feet long. For 25 feet instead you would want the part # DL24100. As for your GPS being off...I would recommend trying a different GPS app on your phone or online. But that's really beyond our area of expertise.

  • Recommended Winch for 300 Lb Boat with Power Drill Adapter
    I do have an option but the only manual winches we have that can be operated with drill via an adapter are simply too heavy for such a small boat and will not work properly with this light load. I recommend using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL14125 with the Hand Winch Strap part # DL24239. The ability to use the winch with a drill won't be an option unfortunately.

  • Mounting Holes Measurements and Strap Width for Dutton Lainson 600 and 900 Pound Winches
    Both hand winches # DL15002 and # DL14125 have the same mounting pattern. I have included a picture that shows the dimensions for you. A 2 inch wide strap will work with these winches. You will want the strap capacity to be at least 1.5 times higher than the winch capacity for safety. For winch # DL15002 the recommended strap is # DL24291. And for winch # DL14125 the recommended strap is # DL24239.

  • Trailer Hand Winch Needed with Shortest Handle
    The 7 inch handle on the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL14125 is pretty much the standard size as most winches have a 7 inch handle. We do have a smaller handle with the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle # FW20000301 but it can only be adjusted down to 6 inches. If the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch is the type of winch that you are looking for then I recommend going that direction if you will be using cable. It can hold 5/32 inch diameter cable...

  • Hand Winch for Boat Trailer with 20 Foot Long Strap
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL14125 will only accept up to a 16' long strap due to the size of the drum, the Winch Strap with Hook part # DL6148 will be a good choice. The location of the handle would vary based on how you are looking at the winch. If you were looking at the winch straight on from the front then the handle is on the left side. The Fulton Single Speed Trailer Winch part # F142102 has a higher capacity and it already comes with a 20' long strap so this may be a...

    The Fulton brake winch part # F143100 would be what I would recommend. It's a similar 1,500 lb winch that has an automatic brake built into it and was designed for boat lift applications like yours. For a cable you'd then want the Dutton Lainson cable part # DL24100.

  • Strap and Mounting Plate Needed for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125
    The strap that you will need to use for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL14125 is the 2" x 15' Strap # DL6148. The hook on this strap has a safety latch on it to help keep it secured to the load during operation. You will need a 2-3/4" long x 1/14" diameter bolt for this straps to work with this winch though (not included). When it comes to mounting the winch we have the CE Smith Winch Stand # CE31013G but this is used for boat trailers. If you have a utility trailer then unfortunately...
