Anyone ever used these? If so is small the right size to fit original Prelude winches? Do they work well enough?

I'd say the lack of tailing winches is the biggest issue when sailing -Often end up pulling the sheet tail across the cockpit & tying off on the opposite cleat, as it's easier to make quick adjustments, especially when heeled over, when I'd rather have the main sheet in my hand. Obviously new proper self-tailing winches would cost a fortune. So at 50quid I'm thinking worth a punt..
