They're far from being a self tailer, and not intended to be! And mine have never failed me. I've had people aboard stating that they wish they had my set up. KI$$

Many Barients and Barlow winches can be converted to self tailers. Check out Self-Tailing Winch Conversion fits Barient, Barlow, Cathay, Universal and others: Winchmate

I've seen their kit but never installed or used. You may want to find someone who has actually used it.
