I have 6 handles on use and two spares in a box
Good for you.
I charter a lot, often with inexperienced crew.
Usually only two handles are on board with some old spare (non locking is standard for spare).
Often the locking spring is broke (due to mishandling), so my normal policy is: handle goes in the pocket after use.
But the policy is not strict and we often leave them in the working winch if the locking mechanism works - specially those one-hand-release models, which are great.
