Tennis Post Winder Handle – Large
This large winder handle is the key component in tightening and changing the height of a tennis net. The winder handle needs to be wound clockwise to adjust the height of the tennis net.
Tennis net posts are usually sold with winder mechanisms and winders already attached. In the scenario that you lose your net winder or it needs replacing for any reason you will need to purchase a tennis winder. At this point you need to investigate whether you need a ‘Small’ or ‘Large’ winder. The ‘Large’ winder as shown in the image above is suitable for a slightly larger winder mechanism. There is no difference in the shape or size of the net post itself, it is purely the winder mechanism that is slightly different.
The main difference in winders, other than size, is the hole that slots onto the winder mechanism is round. As opposed to square (which is the shape of the Small Winder). This is an important difference because if you buy the ‘Small’ winder for the ‘Large’ mechanism they will not fit together. If you have any questions on the difference between the two winders or winder mechanisms please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly staff.
Of course there are instances where the winder itself isn’t damaged. It could be the case that the winder mechanism is broken, in which case the entire mechanism needs replacing as opposed to the winder itself. In this instance again you need to look into the type of mechanism that is in the tennis post before ordering. Sometimes the ‘teeth’ of the winder mechanism break, you do not need to buy an entirely new net post if this happens. It is the winder mechanism that needs replacing.
The Large Winder Handle is made from solid brass, as is the winder mechanism itself.
