Answer:

The line must be reeled on to the winch drum in the right direction and manner. Band brakes are designed for the line to pull directly against the fixed end of the brake band.

This is the correct method of reeling.

Reeling the line on to the drum in the wrong direction may reduce the brake holding power by up to 50%. Winch drums should be marked to indicate the correct reeling direction. Winches fitted with disc brakes are not subject to this problem.
