Take a look at our wide selection of Winch Bars, each designed to provide a comfortable grip to help make your winch tie down job quicker and easier. Each of our Winch Bars feature a knurled non-slip handle for a comfortable grip along with a tapered, ...
carbon-steel nose piece for extra strength. Many of our Winch Bars are available with either a painted or a chrome plated finish. Lightweight and easy to use, we’re determined to provide you with a Winch Bar that offers maximum comfort with maximum strength.
To operate our Winch Bar, simply insert it through both holes in the winch’s end cap. Be sure that the Bar is in both holes since using one hole in the end cap can damage the winch and the Winch Bar tip, which could eventually cause them to fail and injure the user. Use the Bar to wind the winch and the Winch Strap approximately a quarter turn. Remove the Bar and then repeat the process until you’ve sufficiently secured your load.
On the other hand, you could eliminate the "Remove the Bar and then repeat" step of the tightening process by giving our Ease-Z Winch Bar a try. Our Ease-Z Winch Bar allows for rotating the Bar 360 degrees without having to remove it for easier leveraging to tension a Winch Strap. This also speeds up the loading and unloading process to help get you out on the roads faster.
We also have our Standard Winch Bar, which is designed to offer a very comfortable grip that helps you gain optimal leverage easily, as well as our Combination Winch Bar and Combination Box End Winch Bar, both of which provide a much needed balance for those who tie down their cargo with both Winch Straps and chains.
When tensioning or releasing the winch tie down assembly, always stand clear to one side of the Winch Bar in case the Bar slips. Always maintain a firm grip on the Winch Bar and never release it without checking the pawl to ensure that it is fully and properly engaged between the ratchet teeth.
Our Winch Bars perform optimally and can be used in nearly any kind of weather condition. When tensioning or releasing the winch tie down in rain, ice, or snow conditions, be sure to properly position your feet and body to prevent slipping.

Standard Winch Bars
Our Standard Winch Bars are designed to help you achieve maximum leverage so that you can effortlessly tighten down your load for a secure tie down job. It functions just like a classic lever, giving you full control over the tensioning process. These Winch Bars come with a painted or chrome plated finish and measure up to 35.25 inches in length. The mushroom nose tip helps keep the Bar from slipping out of the winch for easier operation. Your winch tie down assembly will remain incomplete without this essential tool.
We are also offering our Standard Ease-Z Winch Bars, which offer 360 rotation so that you don’t have to keep removing the Bar from the winch in order to continue tightening the Winch Strap. Designed in our signature orange color, we’ve engineered our Ease-Z Winch Bar so that the handle and the mushroom tip are always parallel with each other, offering greater leverage when you’re trying to tighten down your load in limited spaces.
Combination Winch Bars
When you secure your cargo using both Winch Straps and chains with your winch tie down assembly, constantly switching between two different types of Winch Bars while trying to tighten or loosen the straps and chains separately can be a tedious, time-consuming process. Instead, using our Combination Winch Bars saves you a lot of time and frustration. In addition to offering maximum strength when tightening or loosening your Winch Strap, this Bar is designed with a modified end that allows you to tighten or loose chain level binders as well. No more constantly switching between Bars.
Our Ease-Z Combination Winch Bar offers the same kind of strength as a standard Combination Winch Bar but also offers 360-degree Bar rotation, eliminating the need to constantly remove and reinsert the Winch Bar into the winch. Designed with a non-slip knurled handle and non-slip mushroom tip, this Bar lets you smoothly and quickly switch between winches that use different tie down assemblies. Whether it’s Winch Straps or chains, this Ease-Z Combination Winch Bar gets the job done.
Combination Box End Winch Bars
We’ve designed a universal Winch Bar that you can use for tie down jobs that use both Winch Straps and chains to secure your load. Our Combination Box End Winch Bars are engineered to not only provide optimal strength and leverage when operating the winch with a Winch Strap, but it also works flawlessly to release lever style chain binders whenever you secure your cargo with chains. This saves a lot of time in the long run and helps get you back on the roads faster.
Want to save even more time? We’ve got our Ease-Z Combination Box End Winch Bar to help with that. Instead of constantly inserting and removing and reinserting the Winch Bar into the winch’s holes, our Ease-Z Bar is designed to allow 360-rotation so there’s no need to keep removing it from the winch. This also eliminates the need to use forceful upward or downward angles, which can help relieve some of the tension and stress that’s been building in that back of yours. The non-slip knurled handle along with the non-slip mushroom tip allow you to keep full control over the Ease-Z Combination Box End Winch Bar as you operate it.
