The Safety Thimble I is a smaller version for 3/16″ to 1/4″ synthetic ropes and are perfect for ATV and side by sides that use the smaller winches. They are designed to be used with a 1/2″ bow or D-ring shackle.
The Safety Thimble I sets the standard for superior synthetic winch rope termination! Designed for 3/16″ to 1/4″ synthetic winch ropes found on most ATV’s, UTV’s, Side x Sides and other Off Road Vehicles using winches generally less than 5,000 lbs. The Safety Safety Thimble I is designed to work with our TRE 1/2″ Soft-Shackles or a 1/2″ steel bow shackle, either by the pin or the body of the shackle.
The Safety Thimble is designed and manufactured 100% in the USA! It is a precision made heavy duty winch thimble. The Safety Thimble is designed to prevent the winch thimble from getting pulled into the fairlead where most accidents happen in winching, often due to winch “run-on” from electric winches. The Safety Thimble, unlike hooks, standard eye thimbles and other winch thimbles, does not scratch your fairlead which otherwise can cause damage to synthetic winch ropes. It is also the lightest and most versatile recovery option to be used with synthetic winch line.
