Average Customer Rating:  4.6 out of 5 stars   (31 Customer Reviews)

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


As usual, etrailer made ordering fast and easy. However, when I received the winch, the 1/2 nut needed to hold the crank in place was not in the box. A trip to Ace hardware and some searching to find the right nut was required. So a little disappointed….. . But will continue to shop entailed when trailer parts are needed.


this box was put in between the two tires & the box was damaged, but all parts were in the box.

I am sorry to hear it arrived that way! It looks like you are already in touch with our customer service team. They will take good care of you and get this taken care of.


The winch has held it's finish. no rust noted after a year. Mine is mounted to an antenna pole to lift the 25' mast. Nice addition to my project.




Prompt service and checking in to make sure everything is good.
I have used etrailer many times. Never have been disappointed. Keep up the good work! It's rare nowadays.


Replaced the old wince with a new one. It was easy to install. I can now load and unload my boat with ease and confidence.


Not my first purchase from this outstanding company. Im imppressed by their extensive product line. Nobody had more hand winches to choose from and it was shipped FAST!

Great winch, costs more but worth it! Higher capacity reel.


Outstanding product - easy to install, did the trick


Purchased to replace the same on my boat trailer that lost some teeth when I had to winch it all the way in on a steep incline fully loaded because of an engine failure. It was easy to install and has worked fine.


Opened the box and was really satisfied with the quality. I shopped the big box stores and all they had were cheap made in China products. Thanks for being Made in USA!!! I won't have to tie my boat tie down to the frame of the trailer to get my boat home!!


Appears to be good quality and as advertised. I am happy with the item. I am also very happy with the service provided by etrailer. Their communication with the customer is excellent.


Exact replacement; quick shipping


I stripped the teeth off the first winch trying to pull a drill bit out of the ground. I hope this one is more durable


Works fine - no problems at all


Order expediting, pricing and delivery were excellent


My second one. Very reliable. Great service from e trailer.


I ordered 2 winches on the Friday before memorial day at 6:30pm and received an email from George less than two hours later stating he already shipped my items and upgraded my shipping to 2-day for free. I received my winches by 6pm the day after memorial day and had them both installed in less than an hour. Great products and great customer service. Thank you, George.


Great product and customer service.


Good quality, fast shipping and a very informative web site
Thanks, Dave from California


The item I ordered seem to go very smoothly. It was easy and arrived on time.


Well made and works great!


I was impressed with the quick turnaround. The product meets my expectations. Product was reasonably priced. Truely a good experience.
Thank you.

  • Dimensions of Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103
    I went out to our warehouse to take a look at the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - 1,100 Pounds # DL15103 referenced in your question. I was able to take the measurements you are needing and have attached an image with these dimensions labeled that you can check out. The mounting base on the winch measures 5 inches in length and 3-1/2 inches wide. The height of the winch, not including the handle, is 5-1/2 inches and with the handle it is 9-3/4 inches. The total length without the handle is...

  • Choosing a Lightweight Winch that is Rated to Pull 1200 lbs
    Our lightweight winches will range between approximately 7 and 8 lbs. I recommend taking a look at the Dutton-Lainson 1,400 lb winch, # DL15303. The Dutton-Lainson winch is the heavier winch between the two at approximately 8 lbs and comes with Dutton-Lainsons zinc TUFFPLATE finish for corrosion protection. This winch has a 4.4:1 gear ratio and a 1,400 lb weight capacity.

  • Strap Recommendation for Use with Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15103
    A 2 inch wide strap would be what you would need to use with the Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15103 that you referenced. For that you would want the part # DL24249.

  • Replacement for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Model DL1100
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL15103 is indeed the correct replacement for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Model DL1100 that you have now. This winch will ratchet to retrieve the load and then there is a free wheel feature that allows you to pull line out once you disengage the pawl. If you wanted a winch to both retrieve and let out under load you would want a brake winch instead, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch w/ Automatic Brake part # DL14934.

  • Recommended Hand Winch For Pulling 300 lb Catamaran 60 Feet Across Beach
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish # DL15103 would work well for you. It has plenty of capacity, keeping in mind that the capacity of the winch decreases with each layer of cable that wraps around it. This winch does have the option to freewheel, but it features a lock to keep the winch from backing off. It will also accommodate up to 79 feet of 3/16 inch cable. The cable isn't included with the winch, and the longest length we carry is part # DL24104 for 50 feet. You should...

  • Replacement Winch Recommendation for Dutton-Lainson DL1400 Model Winch
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15303 is a direct replacement for your older DL1400model winch so it is what I recommend using as a replacement. I reached out to my contact at Dutton-Lainson who confirmed this. Attached is a review video for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Hand Winch That Can Hold 70-Ft Of Wire Cable
    We do have a winch that works with cable and may workk great for you. I recommend the Fulton High-Performance 2-Speed Trailer Winch, part # DL15103. This winch can hold up to 79-ft of 3/16-inch wire cable and it has a 1,100-lb capacity.

  • Needing a 6 Inch Winch Handle to Fit a Dutton-Lainson DL1100 Winch
    The replacement 6 inch winch handle for the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch-Single Speed -1,100 lbs, # DL15103, will be # DL5703657. This handle is confirmed to fit the Dutton-Lainson DL1100A winch.

  • Does Duton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103 Require Cable Fastener # DL24361 to Secure the Cable
    Yes, you would need to get the Cable Fastener, # DL24361, to secure the cable to the winch. The winch will also require a cable if you do not already have one that will fit. I recommend Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook, # DL24044.

  • Replacement Winch Solution for Shelby 5403
    For a winch with a similar capacity as the Shelby you have now that will work great I'd recommend the Fulton # F142102. This winch comes with a 20 inch strap, has a 1,100 lb capacity and has a solid drum-gear construction which means it will last a long time.

  • 1,800 lb Capacity Handwinch with Long Cable/Strap Capacity
    What it sounds like you are looking for is a handwinch under $50 dollars that has the longest strap/cable capacity. Which based on that I think your best recommendation would be the Dutton Lainson part # DL14627 as this one can have a 9/32 cable up to 58 feet like part # DL24045 or up to 38 foot of strap. The longest strap we have is 25 feet though, part # DL24249. I attached an FAQ on hand winches for you to check out as well.

  • Is The Dutton-Lainson TW4000 StrongArm Electric Winch A Suitable Replacement For DL1100A Hand Winch?
    In most cases the Dutton-Lainson TW4000 StrongArm Electric Winch # DL25200 can be used to replace the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103. Both these have mounting holes which run down the center of the mounting plate for attaching to most boat towers. And while your hand winch has a smaller footprint the 7" handle is still going to give you a good representation of the overall size of the electric winch. As long as your handle has clearance you should not have any issues with fitment...

  • Recommendation for a Replacement Boat Winch for a Boat Trailer
    Dutton Lainson moved from an 800 pound boat winch and now have a 900 pound winch that I think would work well for you. Take a look at Hand Winch, # DL15002. This is a 900 pound winch with a TUFFPLATE finish that resists corrosion and would be a good choice for marine applications. This winch can be used with either a cable or a strap. For a cable, you can use # DL24044 with fastener # DL24360. Or, if you prefer a strap instead of a cable, you can use # DL24043. I have included a link...

  • Recommended Winch for Loading Cars On and Off of a Flat Bed Trailer
    Pulling cars onto a trailer will undoubtedly require pulling the vehicle up an incline, which will add extra resistance to the equation. If you are pulling a rolling load, not dragging the car and no flat tires, up just a slight incline like a 3 degree slope the weight capacity of the winch can be multiplied by 6.67 times, see hand winch article, Winching on an Incline, which I have linked for you to review. A steeper incline causes more resistance and reduces the rolling load capacity...

  • Does The Buyers Products Trailer Hand Winch Have A Ratchet Function.
    Yes, the Buyers Products Trailer Hand Winch - 800 lbs # 337HW800S has a ratchet and free spool function. The linked video will display how it operates. I do however recommend looking at the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - Single Speed - 1,100 lbs # DL15103. They are better built and will last long. It does not come with a strap though and you will need to get one if you wish to go with this product. The two I prefer are the Winch Strap with Hook - 2" x 15' - 2,600 lbs #...

  • Replacement Handle for Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch DL1100A
    While there is a replacement handle for your Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15103 (which is model DL1100A), the Replacement Winch Handle # DL5703657, a different handle will not give this winch a ratcheting mechanism. For that you would need to replace the winch entirely with the Single-Speed Boat Trailer Winch # 315-W1800D which has a ratcheting hand crank. This winch comes with a 20' strap and has an 1,800 lb capacity, though there are other capacities available: 2,000 lbs # 315-W2000D,...
