Racers will maneuver faster and cruisers will have confidence in a reliable and easy-to-use Carbo® OneTouch® Lock-in Winch Handle. It only takes one hand to set or release the handle: Squeeze anywhere along the grab bar with your palm to unlock; release the bar for a secure lock. Independent swivel between the ball bearing knob and hand-grip allows fast trimming using the palm for low loads, and powerful two-handed grinding when loads are high.
At just 20.8 oz. (590 g), the Harken Carbo OneTouch is built to be strong but lightweight. The grab bar and main handle are made of high-strength, fiber-reinforced composite, UV-stabilized for excellent protection against long-term exposure to saltwater and sun. The handle and grab bar are cross-ribbed and braced for enhanced stiffness. An aluminum grip rod mates seamlessly to a forged aluminum handle insert to manage bending stresses. The black hardcoat-anodized octagonal drive gear is also integrated into the molding process, resulting in an extremely strong, one-piece structure. Its locking pins are tough 316 marine-grade stainless steel.
