Expert Answers about Dutton-Lainson

  • Needing a Replacement Boat Winch to Replace Current Shelby Winch Model 5405
  • The best option to replace your current Shelby Winch would be to use a winch like the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, Single Speed, # DL15303. This winch has a 1,400 lbs horizontal pulling capacity and has the zinc Tuffplate finish for rust and corrosion protection. Unfortunately, Shelby is no longer in business and the mounting plate of this winch is the closest I found to your current winch. However, you may have to reposition mounting holes to install this winch on your trailer. The...

  • Is There A Trailer Jack Compatible With 1-1/2 Inch Hole On Vintage Trailer?
  • The smallest diameter jack we have with a footplate or wheel is the A-Frame Trailer Jack - Sidewind - 1,000 lbs. by Dutton-Lainson # DL22530. This is 2 inches in diameter at the top and 1-3/4 inches at the bottom, so you will need to enlarger the jack hole in your coupler. This is compatible with the Removable Wheel # DL22414 and the Removable Steel Foot with Pin # DL22541. I've attached a couple videos to assist.

  • Trailer Jacks Manufactured in the USA
  • There are some Dutton-Lainson trailer jacks that are made in the USA as well as a few that are not. Any jacks that we carry that are made in the USA have that as part of the description to help set them apart. Currently we have the following options: Pull Pin, Easy Swivel Trailer Jack with 8" Wheel - Sidewind - 1,500 lbs. # DL22800 Pull Pin, Easy Swivel Trailer Jack with 6" Wheel - Sidewind - 1,000 lbs. # DL22560 A-Frame Trailer Jack - Sidewind - 1,000 lbs. by Dutton-Lainson # DL22530 Pull...

  • Using Roller Bunks for PWC Ramp & Trailer
  • Roller bunks like the 5-foot Dutton-Lainson # DL21755 and the other similar products shown on the linked page will work best when they are positioned on the trailer or ramp surface in such a way that allows the maximum contact between the watercraft's hull and the flat top surface of the rollers. The fuller and more even the contact the easier the rolling action will be. On a PWC the hull can have many different profiles or shapes. These can include the common V and modified V, and the...

  • Trailer Jack Recommendations for a 10,000 Pound A-Frame Trailer
  • A trailer jack only lifts part of the weight of the trailer and not the whole 10,000 pounds of your trailer. A 10K trailer would have a tongue weight of around 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. But the higher the capacity of the jack the easier it is for the jack to lift the weight and the longer it will last. A jack rated for 5,000 pounds such as # TJA-5000S-B is an option. You could add foot # JF-99 as well. I have linked a video review of the jack for you. If you'd prefer an electric jack...

  • Replacement Sidewind A-Frame Trailer Jack with 2 Inch Diameter
  • The jack mounts used on a-frame trailers usually follow an industry standard pattern which is a 2-1/4" hole opening and three mounting holes spaced 3" apart. I have attached a photo to show this for you as well. If your trailer coupler does not follow this pattern and you indeed only have a 2" diameter hole to fit the jack through then I recommend using the A-Frame Trailer Jack part # DL22530 which has an outer tube diameter of 2". As long as the tongue weight of your trailer does not...

  • Hand Winch Recommendation that has a Hex Drive for a Drill
  • Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15721 does not have a hex head that is fixed and would allow you to use an electric drill attachment. For that I recommend using worm gear winch # DL11001 which does have a hex drive and you can use a 5/8 inch socket attachment to power the load in or out. Worm gear winches are brake winches so when you stop turning the drum, either with the handle or a drill, it will hold the load. There is also no minimum load required. This winch can accept up to a 82...

  • Replacement Crank Handle for Atwood Trailer Jack to Provide Better Tailgate Clearance
  • Sometimes a substitute part like a jack handle will fit on another brand of jack but we do not test items in this way since there are so many possible combinations. I did check the dimensions of an alternate handle, part # BD500171, and found that the shaft diameter on both is 3/8-inch. This handle does have a larger radius, 9-1/2-inches instead of 6-1/2 for the # AT25526. Odds are good it will fit the jack. But if you want the sure thing just replace the A-frame jack with a side-frame-mount...

  • Boat Winch That is Rated for a 10,000 lb Boat
  • The heaviest duty boat trailer hand winch that we have is the Fulton F2 Fully Enclosed, 2-Speed Trailer Winch with Adjustable Handle # FW32000101, which is rated for 3,200 lbs. The closest winch that we have to 10,000 lbs for your boat is the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Winch - Marine, part # DL25215, which is rated for 9,000 lbs. This is an electric winch that should get the job done for you. You will need to use a 12V battery to be able to utilize this winch. If you have...

  • Recommended Roller Bunks for Boat Trailer to Ease Launching and Loading Boat and Bunk Guides
  • The best option for your boat to move better on and off your trailer is to use the Dutton-Lainson Boat Trailer Deluxe Roller Bunks # DL21741. These rollers make loading and launching your boat easy. They are available in 4 and 5 foot lengths, so I've linked a page to assist. You will also need the roller bunk brackets like # DL21742. The attached video will also help you with the installation and operation. One note is that we recommend having a rope attached to your boat when using...

  • Safety Chain Hooks Won't Fit Class V Trailer Hitch on a Chevy Silverado 3500HD
  • I have come across this issue before. What I recommended was to loop safety cables # RM-910648-12 through the hitch safety chain holes and hook the safety chains to the loops. The cables are rated for 8,000 pounds which is the highest for these short cables. There doesn't seem to be any hooks that will fit directly to the factory Class V hitch on your Chevy 3500.

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack With Close To A 1-7/8 Inch Diameter
  • For an A-frame jack that meets that diameter criteria, I recommend the A-Frame Trailer Jack by Dutton-Lainson # DL22530 . This jack will have an inner tube diameter of 1- 3/4 inches and an outer diameter of 2 inches. It is constructed of heavy duty steel and has a zinc plated finish to resist corrosion. With this jack, I recommend the foot plate # DL22541 or the wheel # DL22414. These inner and outer dimensions are as close as we come to the 1-7/8 inch diameter.

  • Recommendation for Replacement Shelby 5470A Winch with Large Drum Storage Capacity
  • You are correct that Shelby is no longer in business. Based on my research it looks like your Shelby 5470A is a 2,800 pound hand winch. I wasn't able to locate the drum capacity on the 5470A but the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15440 that you mentioned can store up to 30 feet of 3/8 inch cable. It does have a very similar design to your existing Shelby winch but also features a slightly higher weight capacity of 3,200 pounds. This is the largest drum capacity hand winch we have available...

  • Recommended A-Frame Jack Caster Wheel for 1-5/8 Inch Outer Tube Jack
  • The Removable Wheel for Dutton-Lainson A-Frame Trailer Jack Model 6418 # DL22414 is a fit for a 1-3/4 inch outer diameter tube. This is going to be the closest wheel to the 1-5/8 inch outer diameter tubing on your inner diameter jack leg. I don't recommend mounting a caster to the bottom of a foot plate as that could cause more issues and would still not fit properly without customization. Your other option would be to customize a sleeve to allow the Ram Removable, 6" Poly Caster Assembly...

  • 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...

  • Split Reel Winch to Move Around Boat Hoist, Frame Into and Out of the Water
  • Yes, a split reel winch such as Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Split Reel for 2 Cables - 1,500 lbs. Item # DL10952 is what you would need. You may also end up needing some pulley blocks such as # SW7750A for changes in the direction of the line(s) if not always a straight line pull. For wire rope you could use 2 of # DL24069 which is a 3/16 inch diameter, 20 foot length of cable rated for 1,800 pounds.

  • Trailer Spare Tire Carrier for 15 Inch 5 on 4-1/2 Bolt Pattern Rim
  • Unfortunately, the Dutton-Lainson Trailer Spare Tire Carrier # DL22144 will only fit up to 12 inch rims. An option for your 15 inch rims with a 5 on 4-1/2 bolt pattern is the MaxxTow Spare Tire Carrier # MT70214.

  • Recommended 3000-lb Dual Speed Brake Winch and Wire Rope
  • The hand-operated brake winch I suggest for your application is the 3500-lb-rated two-speed Dutton-Lainson brake winch # DL14881. This extra-heavy-duty winch uses wire rope # DL24104 which is sold separately.

  • Recommended Electric Winch for Wheelchair Loading
  • For your electric winch, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm Electric Trailer Winch - Marine - 1,500 lbs # TW4015 which has a corded remote, or the Fulton XLT Powered Winch with Rugged Strap - 7,000 lbs # F500620 which has a wireless remote. These winches are more than enough power for your application and have enclosed housing to help prevent wear and keep your interior clean. The strap will help to keep your vehicle carpet and interior free from snags. If you prefer a wire to...

  • How to Install the Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket # DL21762
  • The Boat Trailer Roller Bunk Bracket # DL21762 will secure to the Roller Bunk by hooking around the bolt underneath the rollers. The slot in the bracket will be bolted to your trailer or your existing wooden bunks. The slot in the bracket allows it to be adjusted higher and lower on the bolts. These brackets are designed to work with the 4 foot # DL21754 and 5 foot # DL21755 Roller Bunks by Dutton Lainson.

  • Replacement Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Compatible with a Boat Lift and Wheel for a Handle
  • That is definitely a boat lift winch you have and it is definitely made by Dutton-Lainson. They have several winches designed for boat lifts and those winches are compatible with the big wheel you have. These include the following: Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 1-1/8" Drum - 1,500 lbs. # DL10770 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 3-1/8" Drum - 3,500 lbs. # DL24844 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 2-1/2" Drum - 1,500 lbs # DL14927 Heavy Duty Brake Winch, 1-1/8" Drum - 1,200 lbs. # DL10808 Heavy Duty Brake...

  • The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs. # DL14825 is the right hand drive winch that matches the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Left Hand Direct Drive - 2,500 lbs # DL15403. You may want to consider the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 5/16" Diameter x 25' Long - 2,500 lbs. # DL24102 for these winches.

  • Recommended Coupler Lock For Adjustable Ball Coupler
  • The HITCH-LOCK Trailer Guard Coupler Lock by Dutton-Lainson # DL13980 is a great option for both keeping your trailer coupler locked in place and deterred from theft. You of course need an external padlock like the Master Lock Shrouded Padlock # 37DAT for this application. If you are just looking for a lock when the trailer is not coupled, I recommend the Trailer Coupler Lock - Gorilla Guard for 2" Couplers # 63228 or # 63227 in 2-5/16 inch.

Therefore, this handle is compatible with a wide variety of hand winches. I have attached a product comparison page that lists all of the hand winches this ratcheting handle is compatible with.

  • Recommended Boat Trailer Roller Bunks for 3100-lb Boat
  • Roller bunks can make loading your boat on its trailer a lot easier and can also take away much of the stress on your winch by substantially reducing friction between the boat and trailer. Adding rollers to the trailer will not extend your trailer's reach into the water but it will make it easier to get the boat loaded once it reaches the rollers. You can see all of our roller bunks on the linked page, such as # DL21741, which you can mount right on top of the bunk boards, I suggest...

  • Distance From Top of Roller to Frame for Dutton Lainson and CE Smith Roller Bunks
  • I believe you are asking about the height from the top of the roller down to where the bracket would mount on a trailer. The # DL21741 is 2-1/2 inches for that dimension and then the # CE27710 is 2-13/16 inches. These are both hot dipped.

  • Replacement Dutton-Lainson Trailer Jack 22457 or 22560
  • I spoke to my contact at Dutton-Lainson and was able to confirm that the Pull Pin, Easy Swivel Trailer Jack with 6" Wheel part # DL22457 for 10" lift or part # DL22560 for 12" lift is a direct replacement for the jack you have on your trailer now. For future reference, the part number of the jack is a set of three digits on the black plastic handle. If you add "22" to these digits that will give you the full part number of the jack. The jack you have now should have either "457" if you...

  • Shelby 5408B Winch Replacement Recommendation
  • The max rating of your Shelby 5408B is 1,900 lbs which would be more than adequate for a 2,200 lb boat as typically the ratio for winch capacity to boat weight is 2 to 1. For a similarly rated winch we have the part # DL14627 which is rated for 1,800 lb. For a strap to use with this we have the part # DL24249.

  • Solution For Allowing Boat Trailer to Winch In Easier
  • The simplest solution may be to install roller bunks on the trailer to help you winch the boat in easier instead of using an electric winch for such a small boat. For a 4 foot long roller bunk we have the part # DL21754 which would be a great option. If you were to use the winch part # DL25200 it would mount to the same mount that your trailer has for it's current winch.
