Operating and Spooling the Tyler Tool Manual Hand Winch

Tyler Tool Manual Hand Winch: Spooling Winch
To spool the hand winch, begin turning the handle while holding constant tension on the cable and guide the cable onto the spool until the cable is equally distributed across the spool.

If you release tension from the cable while winding, the cable will likely bird nest on the spool.

By not spooling the cable properly, the cable can knife into other layers and get wedged, kinked, and undergo severe abrasion, reducing the life of the cable.

Tyler Tool Manual Hand Winch:Minimum of 4 Wraps of Cable on Spool
To maintain its proper load holding capacity, a minimum amount of 4 cable wraps is required on the winch.

Tyler Tool Manual Hand Winch:Maximum Cable on Spool
The maximum amount of cable on the spool is determined by the cable diameter and must sit two diameters below the portion of the reel where it starts to angle outwards. Visit the hand winch section of our website to see a table with the maximum lengths of cable you can spool on the winch in various cable diameters.

Tyler Tool Manual Hand Winch: Mechanical Advantage
Keep in mind that the greatest mechanical advantage, and the lowest force required to pull a load is achieved when you have the fewest layers of cable on your winch. It is good practice to keep the shortest length of cable on the winch that will work for your application.
