Single Direction Cable Winders

The Single Direction Cable Winders are a great solution for managing cables in boat lifts, especially those with side-mounted drive pipes. Also called cable savers, these winders are designed to keep your cable strong under load, ensuring it lasts longer.

Key Features:

  1. Durable Build: Made from strong Sch. 40 aluminum, these winders are tough, resistant to corrosion, and built to last in marine environments.
  2. Easy Cable Winding: Designed to make winding your cable in one direction simple and efficient for smooth cable management.
  3. Generous Size: With a length of 15.25 inches, they provide enough space to wind about 36 feet of 7 x 19 aircraft cable securely. They can handle cable thicknesses up to 5/16″.
  4. Smart Design: Cleverly designed shallow grooves gently cradle the lower part of the cable, reducing stress and wear during operation to maintain its strength.
  5. Easy Installation: Whether you choose the solid or split winder, installing them is easy. For solid winders, slide them in after removing the drive pipe. With split winders, you can install them before or after mounting the drive pipe.
  6. Complete Package: Each winder package includes stainless steel mounting bolts, nuts, and washers for a hassle-free installation. These high-quality fasteners ensure durability and corrosion resistance, even in challenging marine conditions.
  7. Convenient Cable Hole: With a single 0.75-inch cable hole, inserting and maintaining your cable is a breeze. Perfect for managing cable lengths of 24 feet (2 3/8″ OD) or 28 feet (2 7/8″ OD).

Important Note: Remember that installing these winders slightly increases the drive pipe’s diameter, which can affect the lift capacity of the hoist and motor. Consider this when making your selection. Choose wisely for a well-functioning boat lift system!
