You can put a padlock through the winding port to prevent inserting the shaft and the shaft is specific to the winder being 5 sided.

Does it drop it all the way to the floor or just release the pressure off it?
It might be a sealed unit but I'd protect it just in case, bit of amalgamating tape on the cable ends too Very Happy

Of course it has to drop to the floor or you'd never lift it.
The winder and cable are fine no need for any additions

I have come across wheels a lot bigger than that which you have to man handle onto the carrier some of which had cables and ratchet fitted
