Do you mean a roller fairlead? I made sure not to use the winch without a fairlead, and haven't needed the winch since I got it installed!

No, Joe, he is talking about the end of your winch cable where it is connected to your shackle. It needs a thimble in there.


EDIT: Although after looking at my winch, smittybilt just sells their **** just like that. Just a loop and a hook. And mine is yet to fail.

No, not at all what I meant. In the pic below you can see how the radius of the bend in the cable is kept larger by the thimble (the steel "collar" in the eye.)

Wire rope (cable) can only withstand a limited amount of "sharpness" in it's bend radius which depends upon its diameter and construction. A 1/16" diameter cable can easily bend around the neck of a beer bottle, right? But a 3/8" diameter cable can't wrap that tightly. If you were to force it to do so, you would have to "bend" it. This and permanently deforms and weakens the strands.

The small pin of your shackle/hook that the eye of your cable is secured with will cause the cable at the end of the eye to "bend" if it's loaded. It will fail at FAR below its rated limit if you do this.

PM if I've not explained clearly so this thread can get back to topic.

Sorry for the brief hijack, guys
