Located in Boise, Idaho we are an engineering design firm specializing in mechanical design and analysis. Our staff has extensive experience in the Aerospace, Defense, and semiconductor industry but we have always been passionate about off roading through out our careers. All of our products are designed in house using the latest 3D CAD software and optimized using Cosmos FEA ( Finite Element Analysis). Before we release any products to the public, we also perform a destructive test on each design with the assistance of a test facility equipped with test measurement and data recording equipment. We take great pride in knowing all of our products are derived from sound engineering disciplines.

Why go through all of this for the off road market? Simple, we want to make sure we are producing the highest quality, best value products for our customers.



SAFER STRONGER SMARTER


Replace conventional winch hooks with the new safer, stronger, and smarter Factor 55 ProLink shackle mount.

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 provides a safe means to 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 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.

Still doesn't tell me anything sorry, it might be REALLY strong, but your still attaching it to the same cable and loop, so it might not fail but the cable still will,

I like, I could snug my winch cable up good and tight against the fairlead. :thumb:

The point is that you are not using a hook. A shackle is stronger. ZERO chance of the tree saver coming off of the shackle versus a hook. I don't know how much recovery you have done but some of the tree savers and straps are pretty big and don't fit very good on hooks. That's why most of us use D-Ring shackles. Its about safety. On top of that its a bonus that its cool. Really nothing else to it.

Yeah I've done plenty of recovery, my hook is large and has a safety clip on it, I see why if it didn't this would be needed

dkeven 06-08-2012 04:05 PM

just busting. but if you add the same shackle to the above pic with the hook it works fine too, cost minimal. They do look cool though how much for the red to 37034

necromancer_tat 06-08-2012 06:40 PM

I like the snug against the fairlead thing, but I agree that a D-ring and a normal winch hook is just as good for winching. What's the cost?

EDIT: Nevermind!!!!! $150 dollars for a thimble??? My winch came with a hook on it, and a 3/4 inch D-ring costs 12 bucks. Sorry, but I just don't see the value.

I run this thimble. I just had to use mine extensively on Sunday and the mental confidence was worth every penny. It is a product so detailed in material and workmanship that we also stock them in store.

I would like the Pro Link Loaded Shackle Mount. They look awesome but I think it's a little over priced at $149.95. Let me know if there will be a sale going on any time soon.
