Quick-Lock™ is the quickest and most user-friendly winch handle available for racing and cruising sailors alike. In addition to its super fast grab-and-release mechanism for foolproof singlehanded removal, it is the only handle to feature an auto Quick-Lock mechanism that allows you to place the drive head straight into the winch socket without the need to depress or rotate a knob. Its stainless steel locking lever secures the handle until you are ready to remove it. The large easy to locate release button extends up the length of the handle providing foolproof grab-and-release operation. This makes the Quick-Lock™ ideal for operation at full extension and with only one hand. A precision ball bearing race in the handgrip provides free rotation for high speed or high power cranking, and the refined ergonomics ensure efficient transfer of effort.
