Help with a come along winch

Post  Lindacol on 2/26/2012, 10:47 pm

I know some of you are a lot more experienced working with tools than I am. This is only distantly related to gardening as I was making something in the barn for milking the goats that produce the manure used in my compost, plus they consume garden leftovers.
I used the come along winch to tighten an 8 foot span of the headpiece for the milking stand (3 adults couldn't get it together but the winch did what was needed). Now I can't get the flippin winch to release. I know that I need to press both levers but is there another step?
I have used it before to pull & tighten chainlink fence. Now I am about ready to try to dismantle it but I have a feeling that could be dangerous.

Any ideas on what to do would be appreciated.
When this is done I can move on to putting together my last SFG bed which I hope to do this week.

Did you figure how to release the winch?

Yes. Called my brother (a constuction superinendent) over. It took both of us because it was on tight. He slightly tightened it while I pushed the release lever.
I also finished and installed the last garden bed. It is already partially gridded and planted with onion starts.
