Show Me Your Winch Stop/Anchor

Last item I need to order and I did not like the anchor from Maximus-3. I have seen the hook anchor that I like on some Jeeps so do you mind either showing me yours or pointing at the place you bought them?

TIA

Curious. What is the benefit of this instead of the standard hook?

Sorry, I might be misleading folks. What I am looking for is a piece that goes between the hook and the fairlead to cushion and stabilize the hook. The ones I have seen look like they are made from either rubber or plastic.

What are these called? I've been wanting something integrated to use as a line weight.

I am certain that someone out there knows what I am talking about. Look at the picture in the 4th post and tell me what that is called and where to get one please.

I know it's not what you posted but I just ordered a plain winch stop from ebay for $14, and I have a removable half link sling winch hook from tuff stuff coming for $35. Should perform as well as any of the other solutions I have seen. It is shown on an ATV winch, but I think it's the right size for a hawse fairlead and 3/8" rope.

What you are looking for seems to be called a "winch isolator".

Yup, that is the one and I appreciate the winch stop suggestion as well. Thanks for the help.

That Factor55 Pro Link looks very nice. That makes two votes for the Pro Link. Hmmm. Very good suggestions folks.

Any benefit using that versus a hook?

Higher load rating than a hook. Probably a bit safer.

Maybe so but it doesn't matter since the line is rated way below the hook.

No one will ever convince me that they didn't do it for the looks of it. Nothing wrong with that at all, but dont try to sell me on it being safer and stronger.

Yup, just looks better/cleaner. I will be using one when my winch comes next month...

I wasn't selling you the pro link on safety or strength. It was more referring to using a 3/4 D Shackle as opposed to a hook. A Closed D shackle would be less likely to slip off in an extreme or rare situation. It would be the same to attach a shackle to the thimble as to a pro link.
You're right, it's about personal preference. If a hook and a piece of rubber tire as a stopper is your thing then god bless.

Just wanted to update, I got this hook today and it is garbage. I am sending it back for a refund and ordering a Warn premium hook.
