Grand Cherokee Winch Thimble

Why Use a Winch Thimble?

Smart off-roaders have known for years that a shackle is better than a standard winch hook.

We could write a book on the advantages of a winch thimble, but a picture says it all so much more clearly.

Safe? We don't think so.

Safe

The Pro-Link winch thimble is the best thimble on the market. Not only does it eliminate the possibility of your winch cable or strap falling out of the strap and causing major damage to a vehicle or person, but it is also beautiful.

Designed in the Solid Works CAD program and stress analyzed with COSMOS Finite Element Simulation software, makes these winch thimbles meet and exceed Rocky Road's minimum requirement of bombproof equipment.

All Pro-Links start life as a chunk of Keiser billet aluminum and end up being an engineering masterpiece.

Classic ProLink Winch Thimble

Machined from billet 6061 aluminum, the Prolink provieds a safe method of attaching a standard 3/4" screw pin shackle to an existing wich rope or cable. The cable or winch rope is protected inside the body of the Prolink by a removeable shear pin. The ProLink winch thimble is compatible with Hawse and roller fairleads.

Here are a few advantages that the Pro-Link has over a standard hook.

  • 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
  • Engineered, Tested, and Made in USA - Patent Pending
  • Stress analyzed using COSMOS FEA and destructively tested for confirmation
  • Billet construction - precision machined from 6061-T6 Kaiser Aluminum round bar
  • 16,000 pound max load rating
  • Fits all steel cables and synthetic ropes up to 3/8" in diameter
  • Fits eyes equipped with standard or tube thimbles to 3/8 inch diameters
  • 1.2 inch shackle tab thickness virtually eliminates "shackle rattle"
  • Massive 5/8 inch diameter carbon steel double shear pin - 6Al-4V Titanium upgradeable
  • Optional EPDM "Rubber Guard" protects alloy Hawse fairleads - rubber barb attachment
  • Can be installed and removed in minutes - simple snap ring removal
  • Cinches neatly against all types of fairleads - Hawse or Roller
  • Beautifully anodized and zinc plated in the USA

ProLink FlatLink Winch Thimble

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 aluminum and is anodized/powder coated in 5 different colors.
