Factor 55 Prolink loaded Shackle

Installed a Factor 55 Prolink loaded shackle. This piece is a work of art.

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.

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
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
PATENT PENDING
