good quality product and fit my needs perfectly. gave a lot more room to winch jet ski up without hitting the one across the front. Only complaint is difficult to release if the ski is up tight on the bunk. 711834

Just needed a simple way of loading my 80lb portable generator to the bed of my pick up truck. Easy to set up. 299985

it was what I ordered and works fine for my older jet ski trailer that does not allow a handle protruding from it. 824554

Haven’t used it. Hope I never have to. Gonna put it on a calf puller I made. Seems to be a perfect choice. Great people to deal with. 806045

Awesome simple unit. I am using it on a bunk load on a granite shore line on the St. Lawrence River. It is perfect for my 12 Alumacraft boat. It also keeps my boat high and dry and I can pull the plug. This also allows more boats to be parked at the bigger docks with my boat not taking up dock space. 801479

Product arrived, installed and ready to pull and latch. I was matching the winch with one that was missing pieces. Looks like it'll work, won't use jet ski trailer until probably next year. 718302

by:

Shopping experience was very slick. Product arrived ahead of schedule thanks to free shipping upgrade. The winch is working as anticipated. The back and forth stroke instead of circular stroke is just what I needed due to installation location. Trying to engage/disengage the two pawls to release tension is a bit cumbersome, but it does the job. 705677

Guess it is a good product but didn't work well for our purpose. We tried using to pull out inflatables onto a dock. We screwed it to the dock surface. The angle was wrong and the pulling power was very very slow. Seems it would be better for absolutely straight pulling. 503290

I've ordered from these guys three times and everything was great each time. UPS messes up by handing off my package to the USPS and that made it take a little longer one time but that is not these guys' fault at all. I live in a small town and UPS only comes a couple times a week. These guys are great to work with and I will go to them with all my trailer needs! 272728

Ask the Experts about this Dutton-Lainson Trailer Winch

  • Difference Between 4:1 Winch and 1:1 Winch
    A 1:1 ratio will be much harder to turn than a 4:1 ratio. The 1:1 will move exactly 4 times quicker though. The Dutton Lainson winch part # DL16003 has a 1:1 ratio and a 400 lb capacity. It would make easy work of what you are trying to do since the needed ratio in your application is 2:1 (sorry to use more confusing ratios). What that means is that for your application you can get by with a winch that has half the capacity of the boat. So a 150 lb winch would work fine, and a 400 lb...

  • Winch Recommendation to Raise and Lower 175 LB Monster Jeep Tire
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with 12 Ft Strap, # DL16003, is built for multipurpose hauling and lifting operations with a capacity rating of 400 pounds. Although I do not have a recommendation as to where or how this winch could be mounted for your application, this winch does have the capacity that you would need in order to lift the 175 pound spare tire of the monster Jeep. I have included a video for you to check out.

  • Winch Recommendation to Pull an 850 lb Jet Ski on a Floating Dock
    Generally, the boat-size-to-winch capacity ratio is 2 to 1. If you have a long winching distances and wooden bunks for the jet ski, then that ratio may reduce to 1 to 1. If you have a short winching distance and you are using good rollers as opposed to wooden bunks, then you could increase the ratio to 3 to 1. If you are simply pulling the jet ski directly on the dock without any bunk guides or with wooden bunk guides, then I would stick to a 1 to 1 ratio. For your situation, I would...

  • Light Duty Brake Winch that Brake Operates in Reverse
    For the ratcheting style winches like the part # DL16003 that you referenced there aren't any options that allow for a controlled feed out. For a winch that has a brake that works in both directions the Dutton Lainson part # DL14934 would be a great option. It has a bit more capacity than you would need at 1,200 lbs but it would still work great.

  • Availability of a Replacement Ratcheting Handle for a Trailer Winch
    We carry a couple of trailer winch replacement handles that have the ratcheting feature. If you you have a B Series brake winch from Dutton-Lainson, you can use Replacement Handle, # DL70346. If you have a DLB series brake winch from Dutton-Lainson, you can use Replacement Handle, # DL70347. These are the only 2 ratcheting handles we have. If your winch is a different brand or model, I can try to find if one is available with the winch make and model number. The handles listed above...

  • Availability of a Light-Duty Hand Winch for Use in a Cargo Application
    We do offer lower capacity hand winches that are like the 600-lb-rated Fulton Single Speed Winch FT6000301 that you referenced. Dutton-Lainson offers their single-speed hand winch # DL16003 that includes a 12-foot strap with hook, a handle, and a Tuffplate zinc finish for protection from corrosion. This winch is rated for 400-lbs. An article on winches is linked for reference. If your application is to secure cargo, you will be better served by a few sets of ratcheting tie down straps,...

  • How to Attach Hand Winch to Roof Rack Crossbar
    Since you likely won't have enough clearance for a winch that uses a standard rotating handle, a winch with a ratcheting handle like the # DL16003 would be your best bet. I'd recommend using a couple of U-bolts to attach the winch to the crossbar. Also keep in mind that your roof rack crossbars are meant to withstand a weight equal to their weight capacity bearing down on them. A set-up like you propose will put lateral force on the crossbar and roof rack. I'd proceed cautiously, and carefully...

  • Worm Gear Winch Recommendation for Hoisting a 150 lb Float
    Based on what you are doing I would recommend you use a Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch # DL10954. Worm gear winches are great for hoisting things because the load cannot reverse the direction of the winch and there is no free wheel option. Check out the review video for this product for you. For a cable I would recommend you get a Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook # DL24100.

  • Recommended Ratcheting Winch To Pull Light Boat On To Beach
    I recommend a ratcheting winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, part # DL16003. You may want to secure the winch to something solid that you can stand on while using the winch. This winch is a ratchet-style so it would not have to worry about being close to the ground when it is being used. This winch has a one-way ratcheting system. The handle can be released for free spooling to release the load. This winch also comes with a 2 inch x 12-ft strap that has a hook on the end. I...

  • What is Mechanical Advantage and How is it Calculated on a Hand Winch
    Essentially to calculate mechanical advantage, first take the output force and then divide it by the input force. Input force is how much force you apply to the handle. Output force is how much force is applied to the load. Some of the winches are for use with a cable only, and they will state that in the product description. If a strap can be used it will either state that it can or it will give an indication that one can be used, for example it might say max drum capacity when using...

  • Mounting a Hand Winch on the Front Cargo Rack of a Yamaha Grizzly ATV with a 5 ft Moose Snow Blade
    I would recommend using a ratchet crank hand winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, part # DL16003. This would allow you to mount the winch to your front cargo rack and not worry about the full 360 degree rotation. This will also give you the lift you need for your blade and includes a 12 ft strap already installed. We also offer standard winches with ratcheting replacement handles like the B Series Dutton-Lainson Heavy Duty Brake Winch, part # DL10770, with B Series Ratcheting Replacement...

  • Using a Boat Winch On Roof Rack Of 2013 Nissan Frontier to Winch 70 Lb Boat Onto Truck Bed Cover
    I cannot say without a doubt that your roof rack could not be damaged by attaching a winch to it to pull the boat. It also may void any warranties that may be on the rack itself or vehicle since it is not designed for that use. However, most of the weight will be on the winch itself so it is ultimately up to you if you want to take that chance. I recommend to use the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL16003 which has plenty enough capacity for the 70 lb boat. This has a ratcheting handle...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation to Tilt a Folding Motorcycle Trailer For Storage in the Garage
    The MaxxTow Positive Lock hand winch that you referenced # MT70176 will work for your application. This winch is rated for up to 1,000 pounds capacity. So it would work for your 230 pound folding motorcycle trailer. Please be aware that this is a one way ratcheting system. You can place the handle in free spool mode to release the strap, but if you would like to use the ratcheting system you will have to turn the handle. For your reference this handle is 9 inches from the attachment...

  • Recommended Winch For Vertically Lifting Light Loads With Limited Handle Space
    The best option we have for you to help lift your laundry rack would be with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL16001 because it has a ratchet handle that does not require full rotations to turn the drum. In order to add a cable you can obtain the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook part # DL24104 but we also offer this winch with a strap, the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch part # DL16003.
