Winch Installation Instructions

Winch

All winches shall be installed so the user can see the pawl, to ensure proper engagement. Additionally, the winch shall be positioned so the pawl drops between the ratchet teeth by gravity. Winches shall never be installed in a position where the user cannot see the pawl engagement, or where they must hold the pawl to engage the ratchet tooth.

Standard winches are designed for bottom mounting. To insure proper operation of locking pawl by gravity, do not install standard winches in side mount orientation.

Standard winches are designed for bottom mounting. To insure proper operation of locking pawl by gravity, do not install standard winches in side mount orientation.

Low profile winches are designed for side mounting (except for low portable and low profile slider winches). To ensure proper operation of locking pawl by gravity, do not install low profile winches in bottom mount orientation (except for low profile portable and low profile slider winches).

All winches, except portable and sliding styles, must be welded or bolted to the vehicle structure. Minimum welding requirements are 1/4" fillet weld, 4" long on both sides of the frame and 1/8" penetration. If winches are installed in track, the track shall be attached to vehicle structural members. The vehicle structure should have equal or greater strength than the winch.
