The GO Windlass is the innovative Ratchet Windlass
Welcome to the GO Windlass web site, The GO Windlass lock key has been designed to ease the operating of lock paddles on the inland waterways across England and Wales.
The GO Windlass is a ratchet windlass with an assured action which is strong, easy to use and is designed to fit tapered spindles.
The windlass has a reversible ratcheted socket for raising lock paddles which allows a pump action, and a separate integral socket for controlling the descent.
When raising a canal lock with a conventional windlass, applying considerable effort is often required in all leveraging positions.
Using the GOWindlass completely eliminates the need to rotate the windlass through 360 degrees and allows you to pump the handle whilst standing in an upright position.
Lightweight Ratchet Windlass, The GO Windlass weighs less than 1 KG.
All GO Windlass despatches are sent with parcel tracking.
The handle provides a comfortable but sure grip and is large enough to accommodate holding with both hands. The ratcheting motion allows you to pump or wind the spindle in a manner most comfortable for your own personal use. It can be used in both a clockwise and anti-clockwise direction depending on your situation.
We have carefully considered the optimum design for the “GO” Windlass to ensure dependability, safety in use and an acceptable weight.
We are confident that you will find the GO Windlass an asset to have onboard. If you have purchased one we would love to hear how you are getting on with the GO. Please do use our feedback form. We read all feedback, welcome your comments and like to hear about your experiences.
