Multi-speed winch handle gadget
OK, how about this idea. A round thing about an inch thick and the diameter of your winch with a built in handle that FOLDS over the top so the handle stays on the winch but when folded is out of the way with the grip being down. It has gearing on the inside so that the handle that is necessarily shorter than a normal handle operates with as much torque as a normal handle. Pushing it down further causes it to increase torque by 2X. So, handle in uppermost position, less torque than a normal handle, middle position, same as normal, down all the way is most torque.
