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.

Made in the USA


The advantages of winching with a screw pin shackle over a conventional winch hook are many:

Conventional hooks are too small to safely fit both ends of a recovery strapScrew pin shackles are up to 5X stronger than conventional winch hooks

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
