Safety Thimble II – for 5/16″ to 7/16″ Synthetic Winch Rope
Our Safety Thimble II is the “Original” Winch Thimble since 2004. The Safety Thimble II sets the standard for superior synthetic winch rope termination! Designed for 5/16″ to 7/16″ synthetic winch ropes found on most Jeeps, Trucks and other Off Road Vehicles. The Safety Thimble II is designed to work with our TRE Soft-Shackles or a 3/4″ (7/8″pin) steel bow shackle, either by the pin or the body of the shackle.
The Safety Thimble II 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 II, unlike hooks, standard eye thimbles and other winch thimbles, do 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.
