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.
New Features and benefits for GO Windlass in 2019
GOWindlass is now offered with a choice of revolving handle or fixed handle.
Rotating handle versions benefit from a tough poly-carbonate outer tubing which gives less friction on the hand and a comfy ergonomic feel when in use.
This also avoids the "too hot in the sun" or "too cold to hold" metal handle due to differing weather conditions. The non revolving handled version retains its metal handle.
Boaters tend to love or hate spinning handles, the GOWindlass is engineered so that any windlasses purchased with a revolving handle can be reverted to the fixed handle or back again with the use of a hex key.
All windlasses have a re-shaped socket face that makes the locating of the windlass onto the lock spindle slicker.
In addition we conceal the retaining circlip for the socket giving a smarter than ever chrome surface finish.
The GO Windlass weighs 970 grams (fixed handle) 1040 grams (revolving handle).
