One of the unique aspects of this 8 in Ronstan Palm Grip winch handle is its Quick-Lock mechanism. No more fumbling to get the handle in place during dicey maneuvers. The Ronstan Quick-Lock feature allows you to immediately place the drive head into the winch socket, without the need to rotate a knob or depress a button. Its stainless steel locking lever then retains the handle securely in place until you are ready to remove it. Offers a lightweight forged construction with corrosion resistant Hardcoat anodized finish. Palm grip handles are a great option where serious two-handed cranking is required. The smaller turning radius of an 8 in. winch handle can offer rapid action when speed is more important than power. They are also ideal for smaller boats with restricted space.
