Quick-Lock winch handles

Racers and cruising sailors can rejoice: Ronstan’s new Quick-Lock winch handles have a drive head that inserts into the winch socket without rotating a knob or pressing a button.

A stainless steel locking lever automatically holds the handle in place. The handles are available in 8- and 10-inch arm lengths, with a traditional single grip or the two-handed Palm Grip for ultimate cranking power.

Retail prices range from $94 to $117. Ronstan USA, Portsmouth, R.I., (401) 293-0596.
