What is a Hand Winch 

A hand winch is a manual device used for lifting or pulling heavy loads. It typically consists of a drum or spool, a crank or handle, and gears. The drum is attached to a cable or rope, which is wound around it. When you turn the crank or handle, the drum rotates, winding the cable or rope onto it. This action creates tension in the cable or rope, allowing you to lift or pull objects with less effort than would be required using brute force alone. Hand winches are commonly used in applications such as hoisting boats onto trailers, raising heavy objects, or tensioning cables and wires. They are often portable and can be used in various outdoor or industrial settings where power sources may be limited or unavailable.
