Lock Mechanism 2.0

This is the new lock mechanism I made using 1/2" thick steel, cut on the waterJET, and TIG-welded together. It's about 3 times as thick as my last lock, which failed under heavy load (see image below). This set up also is external to the winch, so that the moving parts aren't subjected to the same stresses as the winch (which caused lots of problems on the last setup.)

Below is the old set up...
