The Master Lock No. 2953DAT features a portable 12-Volt DC electric winch designed to withstand up to 2,000 pounds of pulling capacity. The winch includes a galvanized steel cable and hook for additional safety. The winch is attached with the provided steel mounting plate.
No need to buy a winch for each vehicle or trailer, this portable DC-powered unit mounts to any hitch or flat surface to haul in that boat, vehicle, trailer, and more! The winch can be temporary or permanently mounted to either a ball-mount hitch or a flat surface. A parallel-shaft gear ensures efficient power for rolling wheeled trailers and vehicles up to 6,000 pounds, pulling things up to 5,000 pounds through water, or dragging items up to 2,000 pounds. The winch shuts down automatically if overloaded. And, a toggle remote control lets you control the action from a distance. The winch is equipped with a 20-foot cable that reaches easily from the front of any truck back to a standard trailer--a nice feature for towing the boat in snug up against the trailer. --Brian D. Olson

UPDATE: Year two with this winch. Neighbor got his 1979 International Scout plow pehicle stuck up against a standing fuel sistern. He had chains on the back and cables on the fronts. The plow blade was caught on a railroad tie retaining wall. This was a mess of a recovery a few days after the Super Bowl 2016. It was near the top of an elevated driveway, so there wasn't a lot of room to work. We pulled his GMC up next to it. I figured the only way to get this done was to drag the front sideways first to get the plow blade off of the retaining wall railroad ties. Then drag the rear sideways away from the fuel tank. We couldn't pull it straight back because it was resting against that fuel tank. We used the doubler/block to increase our pull because we new we would need the force. Instead of pulling out the Scout, the GMC was dragged sideways. We used shovels driven through the snow and into the gravel to chock the wheels of the GMC from sliding but it just climbed and then folded the shovels ruining them and slid over anyways. We were working off of his front bumper, so I strapped off the other side of his GMC's bumper to a distant tree to try to stop it from moving anymore. When the strap went tight to the tree the winch dragged that scout sideways through the snow, first the front off the ties and then the rear off the fuel tank. If/When this thing dies, I am going to get another. I think it has already paid for itself with these two recoveries. I keep this winch, my snatch strap, regular heavy straps, D-rings, clevis pin hook, short axle straps, and tree saver short strap all inside of one of these: Rothco Canvas Parachute Cargo Bag . I was watching a car show recently where my wife pointed out the crazy mechanics had one of these mounted to their car trailer for loading/pulling junk cars out of the weeds to turn into great cars.
My only complaint is that the power and controller cable connections are extremely wobbly and the slightest wiggle they come loose. I have to sit next to the winch and hold it perfectly still as it runs which is a safety issue.
Also, this does not have a reverse gear. You have to twist the knob and pull hard to unwind. Its annoying because I have to do a lot of extra work just to unwind and reposition the hook. Not a major problem but wanted to mention it.

The tipping point that convinced me to buy it finally was that I acquired an old Crown Victoria station wagon in non-running condition and needed a way to get it on a Uhaul Auto Transport, which is their rental car trailer and is not winch-equipped (probably for liability reasons). I got air in the tires, knocked off a seized brake caliper, towed it out onto the road with the truck and tow strap, and then used the Master Lock winch to pull it up onto the trailer.
I did not attach/anchor the winch "correctly" and am fairly sure its manufacturer would not endorse how I used it. However, at the end of the day it, a shackle, a couple straps and a cheap pulley hook acting as a snatch block got a 4000lb car with a dragging drum brake on a trailer. I found it sufficiently powerful, though I did trip a thermal overload or circuit breaker of some kind inside it a couple times. It is very noisy as others have noted, specifically the ratcheting clutch mechanism, and it requires constant tinkering with the clutch release to pull out a lot of wire rope in one go, but it did the job beautifully.
I did also use it attached to a parked vehicle in my driveway to unload the station wagon, and that time, I did hook it onto the hitch ball. The hitch ball mount works very well. You just need to be mindful about possibly dropping it when moving or adjusting the position of the winch. I found that it nicely "wedged" against the hitch ball and kept the winch more or less suspended horizontally rather than trying to droop towards the ground, which was a nice effect, whether it was designed-in or not.
About the photo: I initially attached the winch to a D-ring which is welded onto the trailer until the majority of the weight was up on it, to avoid causing any issues with the surge brake. Then I moved it to the hitch safety chain loop as shown.
Although it doesn't have much of a guide to ensure this happens, I did notice that the cable wound up more or less evenly on the drum and didn't require a lot of adjustment while winching it in.
Anbull SMPS 110V AC to 12V DC Converter Power Supply Adapter Switch Transformer Max 50A 600W as a power supply, as well a chain attached to it as an anchor, and an additional pulley. I hauled a 27ft, 3000lb boat out of the water on to the land. Allowed winch to cool off periodically, it did the job. The only complaint I had was the wire rope was damaged inside the reel by the load being applied, leading me to question the quality of the wire.
