Factor 55 brings to you the industry's first folding shackle mount for recovery winches. Eliminate the conventional winch hook and replace it with a safer and stronger FlatLink shackle thimble and D-ring. With less than 1.75 inches of thickness, the Flatlink will work with all roller fairlead license plate mounting brackets.
Some Conventional winch hooks can fray & cut the recovery straps and often allow strap ends to escape during momentary slack cycles of a typical winching recovery. Screw pin shackles do not allow strap loops to escape due to the secure screw pin attachment.
The NEW FlatLink does not require splicing and is compatible with steel cables or synthetic ropes up to 3/8 inches in diameter. The cable eye is retained in the FlatLink by a 5/8 inch diameter grade 5 steel double shear pin and internal snap ring. Best of all... it installs easily in minutes.
The EPDM Rubber Guards protect alloy fairleads and are securely attached to the FlatLink with 4 barbed tips. The FlatLink stows neatly against either roller or Hawse type fairleads and is designed to be used with common 3/4 inch shackles.
The FlatLink is constructed of 6000 series billet aluminum and is anodized/powder coated in 5 different colors. (MADE IN THE USA)
