Video Transcript for Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch - Brake Hand Winch - DL14996 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number DL14996. This is the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch with a tough plate finish rated at 1500 pounds. It does require a minimum load of 75 pounds for the winch to operate properly. When it comes to the drum hub diameter, that's going to give us a diameter of 2 1/2 inches. This unit is going to provide the safety of a brake winch and the convenience of freewheel when needed. The Dutton-Lainson brake winches are going to be suitable for many lifting and lowering applications. The brake system on this unit is going to be fully automatic, so the load is going to remain in position any time the handle is released, so that's a great feature to have in place, but keep in mind that a load is required to pull the line from the winch drum.

Now to take advantage of that freewheel option what you need to do is you need to rotate this handle counter-clockwise and what we're looking for is some space to appear behind the handle. Once we get enough room back there we can take the lockout lever, place it at that portion behind the handle and that's going to allow the winch to go into freewheel operation mode. Now we'll go ahead and move it back to its regular position. What we're looking for is we want to make sure that when tightening this down that our handle gives us a couple loud, sharp clicks just like that. When you hear the clicking noise, that's going to let you know that you're bringing the line in and then you can rotate the handle the other direction to extend the line out. Then again you have the lockout lever that's going to let you activate the freewheel option as well. Again the braking mechanism is automatic so it's going to take effect even when the handle is released.

This right here is going to be the cable clamp kit. That's going to hold one end of the cable securely to the winch. All you have to do is place the cable through the system according to the instructions. They give detailed instructions on how to get the cable installed and run it through that cable clamp kit to securely hold one end of the cable in place. It's going to feature a zinc tough plate finish. That's going to offer 30% greater corrosion resistance when compared to a powder coated finish, so that's a great system to have in place as well.

It's going to include the handle. That's going to give us an overall length of about 12 inches. This winch is going to offer a 5.4 to 1 gear ratio. That means for every 5.4 full turns of the handle, our drum hub is going to complete one full rotation. You can use this with a cable or with a strap.

When using a cable, the maximum drum cable capacity is going to be 1/4 inch cable at 60 feet in length and the maximum drum strap capacity is going to be 31 feet in length and a 2-inch strap is going to work perfectly in this system. You can see here that if we take a measurement of the opening, I'm measuring from inside weld to inside weld, that's going to give us about 2 1/4 of an inch. The capacity is going to be based on direct pool on the first line on the drum and then the capacity is going to be reduced as the line builds up on the drum and the drum capacity is based on the cable size listed right here on our website. We're going to flip this over and take a closer look at the base of the winch. You can see here that it's going to offer 3 mount holes. If we take a measurement, the distance between these 2 mount holes, that's going to measure about 2 3/4 of an inch. Now these holes are going to measure 3/8 of an inch wide by 7/8 of an inch long. This one's going to measure 3/8 of an inch wide by 1 5/8 of an inch long. It is recommended that the winch be mounted with 3 grade A bolts measuring 3/8 of an inch as well as your washers and lock washers. That's going to do it for today's review of part number DL14996 this is the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch with a tough plate finish rated at 1500 pounds. .

The winch is used to load and unload a Civil War cannon from a trailer. It allows total control both up and down with no fear of it "getting away from you." I at first thought the operation might be complicated, but it is simple to use and it freewheels easily. Completely satisfactory. 604688

Do you have a question about this Trailer Winch?


  • Winch to Replace Shelby Model 5352
  • Shelby Industries, the company that made Shelby winches, no longer exists. They went out of business in 2016 after 34 years. We no longer have repair parts for their products nor do we have documentation for their winches. But for their winch model 5352 that you referenced we do offer a comparable replacement, the Dutton Lainson 1,500-lb Winch Part # DL14996. This has a freewheeling lever for easy feed in and out and has an automatic brake mechanism as well.

  • Replacement Winch Recommendation for Shelby 5404
  • The Shelby 5404 winch is a 1,200 lb winch with a 20 foot nylon strap. The Dutton Lainson part # DL14996 is a similarly rated 1,500 lb winch and for a strap you would need the part # DL24249. This setup would be slightly stronger and less likely to bend the shaft like you mentioned.

  • Brake Hand Winch to Replace 1500-lb-Rated Shelby 5352
  • Some Shelby winch models used a handle that secured to the winch with an Allen key. If this is the type you have then it is possible that the set screw or the post on the winch the handle attaches to is stripped or worn to the point that the handle can no longer crank the winch. While we don't have a repair kit for your Shelby 5352 winch we do have a great replacement winch to match what you have since it is a 1,500 lb brake winch. For that you'd want the Dutton Lainson 1,500 lb Winch...

  • Winch Availability Similar to Dutton Lainson 1802 and Shelby 5404
  • Your Dutton Lainson DL1802A is an 1,800 lb winch which would be the closest to the # DL15502. This would be a great option. The Shelby 5404 winch is a 1,200 lb winch with a 20 foot nylon strap. The Dutton Lainson part # DL14996 is a similarly rated 1,500 lb winch and for a strap you would need the part # DL24249.

For that you'd want the Dutton Lainson 1,500 lb Winch Part # DL14996 which would be a fantastic option.

  • Replacement Handle for Shelby 5404 Winch
  • The handles for the Dutton-Lainson Single Speed Winches feature a mounting hole size that is a bit larger than what is on the handle for your existing Shelby Model 5404 Winch. We do have the Replacement Handle for Fulton Hand Winch # F501108 that features the same measurements you took on your mounting hole. The hole on this handle measures 3/8 inch to the square sides and 1/2 inch to the rounded sides. Keep in mind though that this handle has not been tested with your Shelby winch...

  • Recommended Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch 1500 lbs. # DL14996
  • I have a recommendation for you, but unfortunately we do not have a Worm-Gear Hand Winch that has a free wheel option. The closest winch we offer to fit your needs is the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch with TuffPlate Finish # DL14996. This winch is self locking, has a weight capacity of 1,500 lbs. and has a free wheel option. The handle sits on the side and is not reversible. It does need at least 75 lbs. for this winch to operate properly and the handle is included with this...

  • Can Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch be Used to Lower a Dock Ramp
  • The Dutton-Lainson Winch # DL14996 has a maximum weight limit of 1,500 pounds so it shouldn't be an issue lifting the ramp. It is able to lower the ramp as well without just freewheeling although it can freewheel if you so choose. There's a lever you can disengage to allow the winch to freewheel.

  • 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.

  • Winch Base Width Dimensions and Bolt Hole Pattern for the Freewheeling Brake Winch # DL14996
  • I attached a drawing showing all of the dimensions for the base of the Dutton-Lainson Freewheeling Brake Winch, # DL14996, for you to review, see link. The overall width of the base, including the curve created by the bend in the plate, adds up to 4-3/4 inches and the overall length of the base is 5-1/2 inches.

  • Replacement for Shelby Winch Used To Lift PWC
  • For starters, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake part # DL14996 cannot be used to hoist objects in the air which it sounds like you are trying to do. If that is the case then you would instead want to use a worm gear winch, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL10954. In regards to comparing a wheel style and level style action, we do not have any conversion kits for this nor would I be able to recommend any retro fit advice. I recommend you use a standard style level...
