December 27, 2018 — Kinedyne LLC, a designer, manufacturer and distributor of cargo control technologies, including cargo securement, capacity and access solutions for the transportation industry, announced the formal introduction of its EASE-Z Winch Bar family The EASE-Z Winch Bar is a patented Z-shaped winch bar that rotates 360 degrees. The bar comes in one standard model and two combination versions that have modified handles that can be used to release tension on chain binders.
The EASE-Z Winch Bar has eat-treated carbon-steel and a mushroom-shaped head, and helps keep the bar seated in the winch cap, preventing it from slipping out during revolution and when the user is applying torque. A knurled non-slip handle with a flanged grip ring on the bar’s upper shaft helps prevent it from slipping out of users’ hands even in moist conditions.
The Z-shaped EASE-Z Winch Bar can be rotated up to 360 degrees, enabling users to position themselves and the bar to deliver leverage when tensioning winch straps. The rotation of the bar without having to remove it from the winch cap eyelet provides a pivoting action that lets users orient the bar as needed to avoid obstacles and to achieve posture while applying up or down force.
The EASE-Z Winch Bar is available in three models. The 80177 standard bar comes in a length of 34 inches. The 80178 combination bar has a handle with greater girth, can be used to release tension on chain binders and comes in a length of 34 inches. The 80179 combination box-end model can also be used to release tension on chain binders and comes in a length of 39 inches.
