This non-corrosive winch handle is a perfect, low-cost alternative to traditional winch handles. Constructed of reinforced engineering-grade resins and aluminum, this handle is non-magnetic and will not rust. Best of all, it floats! Although they are strong, these handles are NOT intended to replace bronze handles.

Floats and is lightweight, but I broke this thing in half on a single-speed winch raising my main on a Laguna 22. You'd think it would be stronger than that. I ordered I good ol' fashioned metal one - it won't float, but it also won't fail!
Great Buy--Works Flawlessly
For the J22 this is the best handle for the money.
I just returned from sailing with my Bernard winch handle in two pieces! It broke in half under medium load. I have another Bernard winch handle that I'm going to replace this afternoon because I don't want to risk having another one break!!

Latchless Winch Handle
The square insert fits my star-shaped winch socket all right, but there is nothing to keep it in place but gravity. I wanted an inexpensive spare, and this will be my backup, but I prefer another floating handle that locks in place.
