More Information

The Barton wincher is a specially designed rubber moulding which can be retro-fitted over the top of standard plain-top winches, converting them to self-tailing:

  • When a line is sheeted under load, the wraps climb up the winch drum and grip the underside rubber body of the wincher.
  • The line can then be locked into the ribbed central grooveof the wincher, completing the cleating and self-tailing process

Barton wincher cleating

Barton Wincher Cleating: lock sheet into ribbed groove

Barton wincher sheeting

Barton Wincher Self Tailing: the entire winch must be stacked with line

Barton winchers are easy to fit with a bowl of boiling water, a firm manual grip and a 'teasing' tool e.g. the handle of a dessert spoon.
