Ever seen an Easy Crank Winch Socket?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried one of these? Check out the videos on utube. I'm just not sure if I want to be the first to buy one around here, I fall for everything and it is $50 with shipping. My 8 x 16 is a hard cranking house, this might work but I wonder how many times a battery lasts for.

This thing looks incredible!

Got a link? I have had a couple on boat trailors,Dont know if they are what you speak of?? The hand crank winches I used were a extra gear added.More cranking but less resistance.Just geared down for heavier loads.

Just looked at utube,Heck you can do that your self for using a battery operated drill motor.Just replace or grind down the spindel to accept a impact socket.

Good idea, but how is this different from a normal socket or impact socket?

Doesn't Sears or any other socket manufacturer make one that would fit?

Another question is-that house has compound pulleys on it which might make it actually easier to lift than my single. Is that thinking proper math? Mine is a real bear to crank, how in the world can a drill do that? Another thought, that winch must have brakes on it. If I take off my handle and the safety I'm going to be in freewheel, I wonder how that will work.

I noticed that their comment on the YouTube video contains the HSOforum address The address is incorrect. Missing the "n" in winch.

I contacted him and let him know.

http://www.winchdrivertools.comI went with ICNUTS that cheap easy crank winch socket was junk I have been using ICNUTS for 4 years now great product life time warranty winchdrivertools.com there tool did not damage my winch shaft like the eazy crank socket did. I had a friend with an ez up adapter and that also damaged his winch no fun having handles fall off winch shafts.

This is my OLD post. I went with Nutz too. The easy crank guy never answered the phone or returned repeated emails. Nutz guy answered and price on his winches was very good, he even offered me free parts to fix a winch I had on my boat!

Yeah I was really impressed by ICnuts Company wish every place had service like that these days . Hopefully he will succeed I know it's a small family business that is really trying hard. I know it's hard to build a business these days but I found his pricing below most others and they do free priority shipping as well and his tool system is lifetime warranty I think they will do good I seen a post last year that they donated to veterans at icog and that's how I found there company meant allot to me .

    • I’d say it depends on how fast we want results and what the public will tolerate.  I do think a closure during their most vulnerable time is worth serious consideration.  We close the season for other fish for the same reason.  Now we’re realizing the never ending supply of quality panfish does really have an end.   It’s really going to be up to us to understand and accept the facts about how we affect the fisheries.  Getting this information out there and talking with each other is a big help.  I personally know several people who have changed their view on filling the live well or bucket with the most and biggest panfish they can to self imposed limits.  But I also know several people who are still proud as can be to bring home that pile of upper end fish, and worse yet making several repeat trips and bringing others with to do the same.  It’s hard to tell friends what their doing isn’t helpful.   One group of people can substantially fish down smaller lakes in 1-3 years and they’re fine with that.  On to the next lake.  I literally heard that just yesterday.  The limit was dropped on that particular lake to 5 this spring and that has curbed the number of trips they’ve been taking out there.  To me, it doesn’t get to be any clearer than that.   Minky, your practice sounds like what we need to get that 10% group of takers to adopt.
    • Wanderer, any ideas? Would the reduced limit and one over 9 or 10 inches be enough? Should there be a short season closure in the late winter / early spring?  Only catch and release in May and June. I love catching them, eating a few and releasing the rest.
    • here is a new idea to try:  
    • I would have to say that Wanderer is the biggest turkey so he gets my vote. 😀
    • I was out at a local lake last night and found the gills on beds with a few crappies mixed in.  I was learning the lake and planned on keeping moving and targeting bass but couldn’t resist pulling a few pannies in.  As always it was fun but I didn’t keep any and ran into several beds. They were topping out at a solid 8 inches on the board.   As I moved along I could see someone down the line, I thought maybe he was fishing bass also but he didn’t move until I got within about 75 yards.  When I got to the spot he was fishing there was another set of beds but I couldn’t see a fish on them.  Threw my bait in and didn’t get bit.     I’ve been that guy before but I’ve seen that scenario play out too many times to be OK with it anymore.  I know the panfish get hammered all winter and that’s probably putting the biggest hurt on the population but stripping the beds is something we really need to curb IMO.
    • Yes - absolutely thank you to Borch for running this again!   And thanks to everyone who entered!  Having the contest and getting some encouragement helped me get more back in tune to the spring turkey season than I have been lately.  And learn the lesson (again) to not under estimate what’s available and what can happen for anyone.
    • Yes- a cheap go pro knock off. 
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Thanks once again Borch for doing this. 
    • If I could only keep 5 or 10 sunnies this size (around 7 1/2) for the increased chance to catch & release 10+ inch sunnies it would be worth it!
    • Congrats Wanderer!  Shoot Rick a PM to make arrangements for your prize.     Thanks everyone!  It was a challenging but fun season.
