Factor 55 Prolink Winch Recovery Hook

Factor 55 introduces the new ProLink shackle mount for winch cables and synthetic ropes. Engineered and machined in the USA from lightweight billet 6061 aluminium, the ProLink provides a safe means to easily attach a standard 3/4″ screw pin shackle to existing winch cable and synthetic rope eyes.

The cable or rope eye is captured into the body of the ProLink by a removable oversized 5/8″ double titanium shear pin. The front of the ProLink provides the precision shackle mounting hole and massive 1.2″ thick mounting tab. The ProLink is compatible with both Hawse and Roller fairleads and snugs neatly against both versions. All ProLink products come equipped with titanium pins and rubber guards.

Features of Factor 55 Prolink Winch Recovery Hook.

  • Screw pin shackles are up to 5X stronger than conventional winch hooks
  • Anodised and available in Red, Silver, Black, Blue, Grey
  • 16,000 pound max load rating
  • Conventional hooks are too small to safely fit both ends of a recovery strap
  • Recover straps cannot slip out of a shackle like they can with hooks
  • Hook safety latches are not rated for loads and can tear recovery straps
  • Conventional hook surfaces add higher stresses to recovery strap fibres, resulting in decreased strap ratings
  • Shackles can be quickly removed and stowed away until needed for winching.
  • Hooks do not cinch neatly against fairleads and are prone to rattling and loosening
  • Conventional winch hooks are designed for chains – not commonly used recovery straps

    Factor 55 Flatlink Shackle Winch Recovery Hook 

    Eliminate the conventional winch hook and replace it with a safer and stronger FlatLink shackle thimble and D-ring.

    The FlatLink shackle mount is the Industry’s first folding shackle mount for recovery winches. With less than 1.75 inches of thickness, the Flatlink will work with all roller fairlead license plate mounting brackets. Conventional winch hooks can cut and fray 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 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. It is installed 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. MADE IN THE USA, the FlatLink is constructed of 6000 series billet aluminium and is anodised/powder coated in 5 different colours.

      FlatLink Expert Product Features

      The FlatLink E (Expert) is a variation of our popular foldable standard FlatLink winch shackle mount. The FlatLink E provides a means to eliminate the conventional winch hook and replace it with a safer and more secure screw pin shackle resulting in a CLOSED SYSTEM WINCHING operation.

      The large pear shaped shackle mounting hole allows for attachment to either the pin or bow end of common screw pin shackles, as well as common OEM recovery points. This makes the new FlatLink E more versatile than the current FlatLink design, but it also adds the possibility of a dangerous shackle side loading condition (See Picture), especially during momentary slack conditions. A shackle side loading condition is not possible with our standard FlatLink shackle mount due to the shackle pin mounting constraint.

      For the recreational off roader we highly recommend the safer standard FlatLink product, not the FlatLink E. This way the winch operator does not have to monitor whether the shackle may have shifted and rotated in the recovery tackle. The FlatLink E is only available in the Military Specification Anodising (Mil-A-8625 F Type III) hard anodised grey finish. Conventional winch hooks can cut and fray 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 their secure screw pin attachment.

      The FlatLink E 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 E by a 5/8 inch diameter 6Al4V Titanium double shear pin and internal snap ring. Installation takes only minutes. The EPDM Rubber Guards protect alloy fairleads and are securely attached to the FlatLink E with 4 barbed tips each.  

      The FlatLink stows neatly against either roller or Hawse type fairleads and is designed to be used with common 3/4 inch shackles. MADE IN THE USA, the FlatLink is constructed of 6000 series billet aluminium and is anodised/powder coated in 5 different colours.

      Factor 55 Winch Hawse Fairlead Product Description

      • Factor 55 introduces a new line of Aluminium Hawse Fairleads.
      • The 1.0 and 1.5 fairleads are CNC machined from 1 and 1.5 inch thick USA 6000 series aluminium bar.
      • The industry standard fairlead thickness is .75 inches thick.
      • The thicker aluminium bar results in a larger outer fillet radius for the synthetic rope to slide against.
      • This results in less stress on the rope fibres during high angular pulls, increasing the life of your synthetic rope.
      • These fairleads come in a durable MIL-A-8625F TYPE III gun metal grey hard anodised finish with a laser engraved logo.
      • For synthetic winch rope only.
      • MADE IN THE USA
      • WARNING! Always confirm that the synthetic rope cannot make contact to any sharp edges like the opening in the steel fairlead mounting plate or bumper opening.

        Factor 55 introduces a new Aluminium Hawse Offset Fairlead. These 1.5 fairleads are CNC machined from 1.5 inch thick USA 6000 series aluminium bar. The industry standard fairlead thickness is .75 inches thick.

        The thicker aluminium bar results in a larger outer fillet radius for the synthetic rope to slide against. This results in less stress on the rope fibres during high angular pulls, increasing the life of your synthetic rope. The Offset fairleads are the industry's first Hawse Offset fairlead compatible with larger %u00bd inch diameter rope tube thimbles.

        The rope slot height opening is taller to allow the larger %u00bd%u201d tube thimbles to pass through. There is also a machined outer corner chamfer to reduce rope stress for those than plan on using the winch as a front suspension %u201csuck down%u201d device. These fairleads come in a durable MIL-A-8625F TYPE III gun metal grey hard anodised finish with a laser engraved logo.

        What is the best surface finish for Hawse aluminium fairleads? Without a doubt it is a Type III hard anodised coating. Not cosmetic Type II anodised finishes, not powder coated, and not raw or polished aluminium. Why? Because a hard coating can resist the abrasion damage from a dirty/gritty synthetic winch rope rubbing across it. Especially during extreme side pulls where rope fibre stresses are extremely high. A Mil-A-8625 Type III hard anodised finish leaves a .002%u201d thick Al2O3 ceramic coating that is in the top 5 hardest materials known to mankind (See chart under Corundum/Sapphire). Not too far away from diamond hardness actually. Another valuable material property from hard anodised coatings are the low coefficients of friction. Low friction = lower rope heat. Only drawback? Hard anodising is not offered in typical bright and fancy anodised colours. All Factor 55 fairleads only come in Mil-A-8625 hard grey finishes. Not fancy, but it is the proper finish to extend the life of your synthetic rope.

        Overall Dimension: 11.75? x 3.25?

        Offset Opening: .80?

        Thickness: 1.5?

        For synthetic winch rope only.

        Factor 55 SHORTY STRAP Description

        At Factor 55 we have been using a version of our custom ultra short flat straps for years to assist in a variety of useful vehicle recovery applications. These short straps are not constructed like typical recovery/snatch straps. The Shorty Straps are not designed to store energy from stretch. They are designed to serve as a versatile short soft link to attach to vehicles and are constructed of an ultra low stretch (low energy storage) polyester, not high stretch nylon like typical snatch straps.

        The applications vary from easily attaching to vehicles that are not equipped with recovery points, to using your winch and Shorty Strap to field repair/straighten bent steering components like tie rods and drag links. The inherit flat shape of the straps prevent the straps from rolling and twisting when attached to tubular shapes like bumper stingers, steering components, and nerf bars. We prefer flat straps over round ropes for this reason. Even polyester webbing materials retain a small element of material stretch and since the total energy stored is a function of the % of stretch and the overall length of the strap, we have designed the strap to be as short as possible but still retain the necessary webbing overlap and stitch count necessary for the rated loads.

        The overall length of the Shorty Straps is 3 feet, and this is reduced to only 1.5 feet long when used in the common basket configuration. Low stretch/energy storage equates to less recoil energy during a possible component failure.

        • These straps are manufactured in the USA to Factor 55 specifications by the Certified Sling Corporation, the parent company to the well known Bubba Rope Company.

            Factor 55 Prolink Bridle description

            The ProLink Bridle provides winch owners with a means to replace the conventional winch hook with a safer and stronger screw pin shackle/D-ring. The ProLink Bridle is a multiple shackle mount product designed for winch cables.  The ProLink Bridle is a specialised commercial product designed primarily for the towing industry.

            The three individual shackle mounting holes allow the winch operator to mount fixed length bridle links to the outside positioned holes for common bridle towing, as well as a single centred shackle mounting point for a conventional single shackle recovery point. Dedicated shackle mounting points prevent dangerous shackle side loading conditions due to the pivoting feature of the shackle pin mounting hole. This allows for Closed System Winching techniques to be applied.

            For commercial high repeating bridle towing, dedicated self centring shackles result in a safer means to bridle tow.  This ProLink Bridle operation is similar to fish plate towing used in the ship towing industry where boat yaw is undesirable. Like all models in the ProLink family, the ProLink Bridle is engineered and made in the USA  from 6000 series billet aluminium and is equipped with a 6Al-4V titanium double shear pin. The ProLink Bridle is only available in the Military Specification Anodising (Mil-A-8625 F Type III) hard anodised grey finish.
