After installing my new winch, I decided I should use a cover for when there is frozen ice and snow. Here's a cheap suggestion: the small Weber grill covers are currently on sale at Home Depot for $8.50.

Yeah, it says weber on it. Paint, scrape, or just don't care. It's a cheap cover! :-p
Draw strings on front and back, and elastic on the ends.

Find an upholster and have him make a cover . It will be the cost of a case of beer and last at least a year . No weber !

Learn to use a sewing machine & make one out of whatever old awning material you come across. Then spray some waterproofing on it. Probably get away with almost free depending on how resourceful you are.

I've made numerous mirror, rack & swimstep covers on the boat this way myself. It's one of those skills like welding.... once you have it down, there is always a ton of things you can do with it.

Here's my cover. The winch would look better with no cover but it serves its purpose and that's all I really care about

Here you go.
I plan on using something else to hold the cover on. I think the elastic and draw strings are not strong enough to prevent highway speed from pulling it off. I will likely secure this with some black velcro or bungee cord.

Four letters... GLAD. At least no one will try to steal a "Weber" winch... nobody wants an off-brand.
