I am elderly and have a really heavy double-pained glass and metal framed window in the back storage room that gets heavier to lift for closing with each advancing year. When it is closed in the up position and the position locks are released It wants to drop like a rock, all the way to the bottom position. I'm gradually losing the strength to manage it with weather changes and knew I had to do something to make it manageable when I get too old to lift it. I ordered this little winch and rigged a small cable, block, tackle, and pulley system, using a narrow but strong woven steel cable to wind the window up and down. With this little windlass I can now raise and lower the window easily and safely with just one finger. ... PROBLEM SOLVED ! ... This little windlass has a lever brake that engages and releases the cogs easily, regardless of the strain, and can be used to lock the unit at any hoist position. It cannot release totally for a free fall but must be released and manually wound...
This winch is probably great for natural or nylon ropes, but the hub is only about a 1/2" in diameter. This causes a pretty large strength reduction for the 1/4" wire rope I used with it. Reese indicates that a different winch (with a 1.75" hub) should be used used for wire rope in the instructions. Search the internet to find advice on how much the 1/2" hub radius will reduce the strength of your wire-rope.
The ratchet only acts in one direction.
It is still a good winch for the price.
I originally purchased a 2k lbs winch from harbor freight tools. Once that snapped under the force of 60lbs, i went to amazon and found this amazing piece of equipment. I couldnt be happier with the performance. The locking lever was a definite plus as well since I did intend on using it to hoist a canoe.
