Lightweight and fast-acting, the Carbo® OneTouch® ball bearing locking winch handle makes grinding winches easy! Racers will maneuver faster and cruisers will have confidence in a reliable and easy-to-use winch handle. The Carbo OneTouch locks in and out of the winch using its patented locking mechanism and ergonomically-designed grab bar. It only takes one hand to set or release the handle—squeeze anywhere along the grab bar with your palm to unlock; release the bar for a secure lock. Harken added SpeedGrip handle technology to the OneTouch for fast and efficient winching. Its independent swivel between the ball bearing knob and hand-grip allows fast trimming using the palm for low-loads, and powerful two-handed grinding when loads are high.
At just 590 g (20.8 oz), the Harken Carbo OneTouch is built to be strong, but lightweight. The grab bar and main handle are made of the same tough material as our Carbo block line: high-strength, fiber-reinforced composite, UV-stabilized for excellent protection against long-term exposure to saltwater and sun. The handle and grab bar are cross-ribbed and braced for enhanced stiffness. An aluminum grip rod mates seamlessly to a forged aluminum handle insert to manage bending stresses. The black hard coat-anodized octagonal drive gear is also integrated into the molding process, resulting in an extremely strong, one-piece structure. Its locking pins are tough 316 marine-grade stainless steel.
