I'd like an answer to this too! I have a Muir Hercules manual windlass. I can take the chain in... but the chain won't go out. What's a chain stripper?

See this link to download a PDF manual.

On our Muir electric, I use a handle to rotate the top squared socket counter clockwise to unlock the clutch to let the chain free fall.

That is odd. I would think that the weight of the chain because of the distance of the fall would provide enough pull.
