Boydstun releases new Rapid Ratchet™ with Quick Release Positive Locking Pawl
Boydstun is releasing our new Rapid Ratchet™ with quick release positive locking pawl. The new winch, which is standard on all new Boydstun head rack and trailers, includes the following features:
Boydstun Rapid Ratchet™ (see video above)
With low enough resistance that it can be ratcheted by hand, it allows you to tie down and secure the vehicle without removing the tie down bar.
New Boydstun Quick Release Pawl with Positive Locking Feature
Boydstun Sliding Collar
This feature allows you to quickly align your strap with the vehicle tire and also quickly take up slack.
Easy Maintenance Feature
With just a 7/16 end wrench or socket - you can remove a nylock nut that allows you to replace any damaged part if it ever becomes necessary. The spring for the pawl (see pic) can be changed in just 1 minute if needed.
Boydstun has plated all the winch parts to reduce sticking issues that uneven paint can cause. As the paint comes off from abrasion the assembly starts to rust, causing some of the same issues. Our assembly is plated in yellow zinc which gives you a constant coating - less build up - more abrasion resistance and lasts longer.
