Single Direction Cable Winders

The Single Direction Cable Winders are specially designed accessories that provide reliable cable management for boat lifts, particularly those with side-mounted drive pipes. These cable winders, also known as cable savers, help the cable maintain its shape while under load on the pipe, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.

The cable winders are available in two sizes to accommodate different drive pipe dimensions: one for 2 3/8″ OD (1 7/8″ ID) drive pipes and another for 2 7/8″ OD (2 3/8″ ID) drive pipes. These winders are compatible with various boat lift styles and can be installed on slips where drive pipes are mounted on the sides.

Key Features:

  1. High-Quality Construction: The cable winders are constructed from durable aluminum material, specifically Sch. 40 aluminum. This ensures excellent strength, corrosion resistance, and longevity, even in marine environments.
  2. Single Direction Design: The cable winders feature a single direction design, meaning they allow cable winding in one direction, ensuring smooth and efficient operation during cable management.
  3. Cable Winding Capacity: The winders come with a 15.25-inch length, providing ample space to wrap approximately 36 feet of 7 x 19 aircraft cable. They are capable of accommodating boat lift cables with a maximum thickness of up to 5/16″ (0.3125 inches).
  4. Groove Design: The cable winders feature shallow grooves designed to cradle the lower part of the cable, helping it maintain its shape and reducing stress and wear during operation. The groove size is 0.28125 inches (9/32 inches), providing a secure fit for the cable.
  5. Easy Installation: Installing the solid cable winder requires removing the drive pipe from the hoist and sliding the winder into place. On the other hand, the split cable winder can be installed either before or after the drive pipe is mounted to the boat hoist. Both options offer flexibility and convenience during the installation process.
  6. Mounting Hardware Included: Each cable winder package includes stainless steel mounting bolts, nuts, and washers required for the installation. The use of high-quality stainless steel fasteners ensures durability and corrosion resistance in marine environments.
  7. Cable Hole and Cable Length: The winders come with a single cable hole located at the end, providing easy access for cable insertion and maintenance. They are designed to accommodate a cable hole size of 0.75 inches (3/4 inches). The cable winders are suitable for managing a total cable length of 24 feet for the 2 3/8″ OD winder and 28 feet for the 2 7/8″ OD winder.

Please note that while cable winders are essential for maintaining cable shape and optimizing performance, they slightly increase the outside diameter of the drive pipe, resulting in a decrease in the hoist’s and motor’s rated lift capacity. It’s important to consider this factor when selecting the appropriate cable winder for your boat lift system.

The Single Direction Cable Winders for boat lifts provide a reliable and effective solution for managing and maintaining the shape of your boat lift cables. With their sturdy construction, easy installation, and compatibility with various boat lift styles, these cable winders offer peace of mind and improved cable performance.
