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


Exactly what I needed. Super easy to install. Realized that it was an exact replacement done to the maker on my mid 70s sailboat trailer. So, it has a proven record.


Items appeared to be of good quality, service was very good and delivery was ahead of schedule. I have the web page bookmarked for any future trailer needs.


The dimensions work out perfectly and it functions great. I am using the winch to raise and lower a light weight work table in my garage to the ceiling. This allows me to get it out of the way when we need to garage the family car and lower it onto saw horses to work on model airplanes.

The product is working great and is holding up extremely well!
Terry A - 08/23/2016


The item was better than expected. I am VERY pleased with the product and the great service I received! It was shipped out quickly and I was kept informed thru the course from order to receiving the item. I would recommend them to anyone that needs products of this kind. Thank you very much for a pleasant experience!

Thanks for the follow up. I still love it!!!
Samuel B - 06/18/2018


The winches were exactly as advertised and they work great. Etrailer had to delay delivery because of a supplier delivery issue but the kept me fully informed, changed the delivery address which was necessitated by the delay and shipped them in an expedited manner to recover some of the time lost. Their service was excellent!!


Good product, easy to install.


Great product, replaced old rusted one on my jet ski trailer. This one matched perfectly, no additional holes to drill.


Product is as listed and fits my trailer perfectly. Easy to install and it arrived in just two days!

Working great, No problems at all. The price compared favorably with others and the speed of shipping and communication is superior. Thanks for the great service.

Product was what I needed.


First look/ inspection makes one become very impressed---have not put to work as yet, but look forward to doin so---feel that this item will provide positive results as to my needs----trying to decide as to using wire or strap for my needs----very good item with even better price----quality item made in the USA, with 5 year warranty which makes this item great for the everyday man!!!!JLF


I found the item excellent for my needs. Shipping was super fast
And the price was right. Good job etrailer , I will be shopping with
You again soon.
William Hawkins, Kite Ga.


Easy, Easy, Easy. The winch, which will replace a 15 year old 600 pound winch on a PWC trailer, came when they said and how they said.


Worked fine installation was easy. Using it as a replacement for a jet ski lift winch. Inexpensive replacement.


some rusting is apparent on the sprockets, even though the wear has been minimal,
the trailer is stored inside in a all weather barn. Cold true, but cold doesn't accelerate rusting.


Well made and a stronger upgrade over the 600lb. unit for my jetski trailer.


This hand winch is just what I needed for my deer hoist. Very reliable and easy to work. I highly recommend it for lifting a few hundred pounds.


works fine, upgraded due to chosen item was not available.
Con- you have to figure out how to put a strap on it without it slipping. I put the end through the round hole, and put gorilla glue and made a wrap, then a little more glue, then wrapped as tight as possible. Seems to hold.


just what i expected-- great quality--made in USA


Item was good quality and fit perfect.Not to mention very fast and great service and that something that's hard to find this day and time.Todd I


I received a great product and look forward to using it. I was going to buy at Ebay but too expensive. Thanks for a great winch.

It is working great and was interested in a winch that is double switched. It would have the ability to either tighten or loosen on a safety key that locks the winch.
Tim S - 01/07/2015


After one year the product is functioning like new despite the Florida sun and salt.


Good quality. Reasonable price. No comp laints.


Just what I needed!

I appreciate the follow up. I have not had any problems with my winch.
John - 04/20/2019


Easily installed, worked as stated. Fair price and shipped quickly.


Has a simple job and does it effectively at a low cost.

  • How to make the Dutton Lainson Winch # DL15002 Free Wheel
    If you have the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15002 that you referenced the free-wheel lever is actually pretty easy to locate and use. Check out the video I attached to see how it operates, fast forward to the 1:05 mark to see the lever operate. I also attached a picture that has the lever pointed out for you to see.

  • Mounting Hole Dimensions for Dutton-Lainson Single Speed 900 Pound Trailer WInch
    The mounting hole pattern for Dutton-Lainson winch # DL15002 has been independently measured more than once and the results are the same. From that round center hole to the near edge is approximately 1/2 inch. To the far edge it is approximately 3-1/2 inches.

  • Will the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap # DL24239 Work with Hand Winch # DL15002
    You will have no problem using the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Strap - 4,000 lbs, # DL24239, with the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch Model DL900A, part # DL15002. This winch has a maximum strap length capacity of 16 ft. Also, the weight rating of the strap will not affect its compatibility with this winch.

  • Winch Recommendation for a Deer Lift for 300 lbs
    I spoke with another member of our content team who uses a similar winch for deer feeder poles. He informed me that the Dutton Lainson part # DL15002, would be a great choice. If you flip the switch on the winch it can then free wheel in or out. This winch has a zinc coating that will help prevent corrosion as well. I attached a review video for this winch for you to check out as well. You wouldn't want to use the winch to permanently hold 300 lbs in the air. You would want to use the...

  • Will The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish 900 lbs Work To Raise 70 lb 16 Foot Canoe?
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Single Speed - 900 lbs., # DL15002, will meet and exceed your needs for lifting capacity. You can use a good quality synthetic rope instead of a wire cable if you like as long as it fits the manufacturers recommendation. In this case, the capacity of the winch is rated on using a 40 foot long 3/16 inch cable. If you want to have a more controlled load, you may be interested in the Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch with Hex Drive Handle...

  • Can the 900 lb Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch be Used for a Pop Up Camper
    There really are no limitations as to where you can install the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15002 just as long as it isn't a vertical pull. It has a max capacity of 3/16" x 40' when it comes to cable so the best option we have is the 25' Cable # DL24043. I have attached some review videos for you to check out.

  • How to Attach Winch Cable to the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15002
    The cable fastener, # DL24360, should be inserted into one of the holes in the side of the cable drum on the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL15002. The packaging for the cable fastener, see attached photo, shows that it should be installed in the slotted hole in the side of the drum, but on the smaller Dutton-Lainson hand winches, DL600A and DL900A, the slot is not large enough for the cable fastener so one of the round holes must be used. I provided a short video showing how the cable...

The overall dimensions and mounting hole spacing are shown on the attached photo. The overall size of the plate is 3-1/2-inches x 3-3/4-inches. The oval openings measure 7/16-inch x 13/16-inch.

  • Is there a Coated Cable that Works with Dutton Lainson 900 Pound Trailer Winch
    Hand winch cable # DL24043 is not coated. We do not have any compatible cables that are coated. The best thing to use would be a winch that takes a strap and not a cable at all. Winch # DL15002 that you referenced can be used with a strap, # DL24291. The winch and strap are made in the USA. A winch can be used in conjunction with pulleys to hoist the deer feeder but you will then need to secure it with chains and detach the winch cable or strap. The winch should not be used to hold anything...

  • Does Dutton Lainson Winch Part # DL15002 Come with Cable or Strap
    Actually the Dutton Lainson Winch part # DL15002 that you referenced does not include a strap or a cable. It is just the winch. For a 25 foot long cable we have the part # DL24043 or for a 15 foot long strap we have the part # DL6148.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Garage Door
    A worm gear winch wouldn't be a good choice as you'd need to crank to play out the cable and to retract it. I'd go with a plain old light duty boat trailer winch like # DL15002, which is inexpensive and manufactured in the USA. You'll also need some winch cable, part # FWC3250100. The cable would attach to the spool as shown in the diagram I provided. The 25 foot length will work just fine with your garage door. Since this isn't necessarily the application the winch was designed for,...

  • Replacement For Dutton-Lainson DL600 Winch That Fits Same Mounting
    For a winch that fits the exact same mounting pattern as your Dutton-Lainson DL600 you will need another Dutton-Lainson, the DL900A. The winch, along with the strap that fits the winch, are the following part numbers: - Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - Single Speed - 900 lbs # DL15002 - BoatBuckle Winch Strap with Hook and Safety Latch # IMF14210

  • Mounting Holes Measurements and Strap Width for Dutton Lainson 600 and 900 Pound Winches
    Both hand winches # DL15002 and # DL14125 have the same mounting pattern. I have included a picture that shows the dimensions for you. A 2 inch wide strap will work with these winches. You will want the strap capacity to be at least 1.5 times higher than the winch capacity for safety. For winch # DL15002 the recommended strap is # DL24291. And for winch # DL14125 the recommended strap is # DL24239.

  • Does the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch # DL15002 Have a Brake Lever
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch, # DL15002, does not have a hand brake lever. The lever on the front of the winch is the ratchet pawl that changes the direction of the drum. If you are looking for a braking winch, I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch, # DL14934. This winch has a slightly higher weight capacity than the winch you referenced, but when it comes to winch weight capacity, you can never really have too much. This winch is compatible with cable or straps. For a cable,...

  • Winch Recommendation for a Personal Water Craft (PWC) Lift
    There could be any number of brand winches on your personal water craft lift. The winch should have some sort of serial number and/or a manufacturer on it somewhere on in the owners literature for the lift. If you cannot find this information, I may be able to determine what winch is used based on the model and manufacturer of the lift itself. You could also use a different brand winch provided that it has the same mounting hole pattern as the existing winch. You will need to measure the...

  • Recommended Winch for Left Side Drive Comparable to # DL15002
    The Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Single Speed - 900 lbs # DL15002 can only have the handle mounted on the right side. If you want a left hand drive, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Brake Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish - Self-Locking - Left Hand Direct Drive - 1,200 lbs # DL16331. For either application, I recommend the Hand Winch Cable with Safety Hook 3/16" Diameter x 25' Long - 1,800 lbs # DL24043.

  • Recommended Hand Winch for Hoisting 110 Lb Chandelier
    To raise and lower a chandelier, I would recommend using an automatic brake winch like the Pro Series # PSKR10000301. The winch has a 1000 lb capacity, which would be plenty for a 110 lb chandelier. The drum of the winch can store up to 50 feet of 7/32 inch cable, which is sold separately as part # FWC7500100. A worm gear winch like the Dutton-Lainson # DL10950 would also work, but due to its 30:1 gear ratio, you would be cranking forever.

  • Winch Recommendations for Lifting Canoes and Kayaks to Storage Position
    For lifting and storing your canoes and kayaks, you will want to use either a worm gear or a brake winch. Worm gear and Brake winches, see links, prevent runaway loads, and do not have a free spool mode. The pulling winch you selected would not be the best choice for your application, because it could potentially release the load if not operated safely. I would recommend a worm gear winch for ease of operation. The Dutton-Lainson Worm Gear Hand Winch, # DL10950, or # DL10954, would be...

  • 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...

There should be a bow eye on the front of the wave runner that the hook from the strap connects to and then the jet ski can be winched onto the trailer. If you need straps to tie down the rear of the jet ski, I would recommend the Erickson Inboard/Outboard...

If you would prefer a cable instead of the strap, then I would recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch - TUFFPLATE Finish - Single Speed - 900 lbs # DL15002. The # DL15002 has a 900 lb capacity and comes with a 5-year warranty. This winch does not come with a cable so you can use the # DL24043 for a 25' cable or if you want...
