To freespool the winch line out, a simple turn of the clutch lever disengages the winch drum and allows you to pull the cable freely. On a side note, you will ensure longer cable life if you respool the winch after each pull, taking the time to lay all the winds out nicely instead of just letting the cable overlap or build up on one side of the drum.
