pretty good winch handle pocket

After a few years, I've had to buy this replacement because the drain hole in the bottom will no longer keep the handle off the deck.

Might Not Be Large Enough

Decent quality and reasonable design for shorter standard winch handles with smaller drive ends, but this holder is too narrow for at least some of the new one touch handles to fit inside....Read complete review

Decent quality and reasonable design for shorter standard winch handles with smaller drive ends, but this holder is too narrow for at least some of the new one touch handles to fit inside. Also, 10" handle grips will stick out more than you might like. Can't find a molded holder large enough, so mesh/fabric may be the only option for Dax, Lewmar, and Harken one touch handles. Wish I had known before I bought the handle and discarded the packaging.

    Comments about Lewmar Winch Handle Pocket:

    I purchased a Standard Horizon handheld marine radio and didn't want it rattling around in my small open Boston Whaler. As I was not able to find a custom designed radio 'holster' I found that this provides a great solution. It's still easy to hear the radio, which slides in and out easily. All in all a good solution.

        Helps improve our speed in racing! Searching for winch handles is the most absurd time waster in a race. In rough weather, the handles are nested in place, near the jib trimmers, as they should be, not knocking about the cockpit* * * * Ease of access and replacement of winch handles is due to the flawless design of these flexible and smooth pockets. THANKS FOR PROVIDING THEM!!

                Comments about Lewmar Winch Handle Pocket:

                Smaller than the holders they replaced, but they hold the winch handles well, while making them easier to grab. With three screw holes on top and one on bottom, each holder is both more secure and less in the way than its predecessor, so it is less apt to be torn off its screws by crew movement in the cockpit. The one unknown is whether they are as UV-resistant as claimed. The last pair became unsightly in a hurry.

                  I replaced an old wench handle pocket that had turned black with old age. Probably installed in 1983. The new one has drilled holes for installation and was easy to install. Quality is good.
