Carbo® OneTouch® Locking Winch Handle features Harken SpeedGrip technology.
An independent swivel between the knob and the hand grip keeps your wrists and arms in the optimum ergonomic position for winch winding.
Speedgrip technology enables fast single handed trimming with palm downward at low loads and dynamic double-handed grinding when the traction becomes onerous.
OneTouch® technology means less fumbling when moving the handle from one winch to another under pressure.

** Harken Carbo OneTouch has a patented locking mechanism for attaching and releasing the winch handle from the winch.
The design feature that sets it apart from other locking systems is the full length squeeze bar which is really easy to grab making engagement and release much more efficient.
Depress the bar or squeeze it naturally in your hand to unlock the socket head ready to insert the handle or take it off.
This really does make a difference when the crew is under pressure during a sail handling manoeuvre.
