Factor 55 ProLink Winch Shackle Mount - Black Info & Specs

Factor 55’s ProLink winch shakle mount replaces conventional winch hooks with the new safer, stronger, and smarter way to play. Factor 55 introduces the new ProLink shackle mount for winch cables and synthetic ropes. Engineered and machined in the USA from lightweight billet 6061 aluminum, the ProLink shackle mount provides a safe means to operate and easily attach a standard 3/4" screw pin shackle to existing winch cable and rope eyes The cable or rope eye is captured into the body of the ProLink by a removable oversized 5/8" double shear pin. The front of the ProLink shackle provides the precision shackle mounting hole and massive 1.2" thick mounting tab. The ProLink shackle mount is compatible with both Hawse and Roller fairleads and snugs neatly against both versions. 

The advantages of winching with a screw pin shackle over a conventional winch hook are many:
Screw pin shackles are up to 5X stronger than conventional winch hooks
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 fibers, 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
