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

The winder and cable are fine no need for any additions
