Tyler Tool Manual Cable Winches are composed of an aluminum body with a pair of jaws connected to levers that pull and safely release a load. They are equipped with a double locking load pin and have a breaking load of 4 times the working load limit.

Tips
During operation it is important to keep the cable free from excessive grease and debris to prevent the internal jaws from fouling. Use a rag or napkin to wipe down the cable, as needed.

Any properly sized steel cored wire rope or cable can be used, but cable with fused and tapered ends are much easier to feed through the jaws.
