Factory 55 Black Aluminium ProLink Winch Shackle with 16,000lb Capacity.

Conventional hooks have many downfalls, including tearing recovery ropes and even letting them slip out during moments of slack, but with this Black Aluminum Pro Link Winch Shackle from Factory 55, you won't have to worry about any of that. It has features far superior to other winch hooks and a 16,000 pound capacity. This shackle can be used with both steel cables and synthetic ropes for recovery situations.

The ProLink Shackle (P/N: 00015-04) is precision machined from billet aluminum right here in the USA where it is also engineered and tested for quality assurance. Each mount is stress analyzed using COSMOS FEA and destructively tested as well. It features a hard anodized black finish and is zinc plated for additional durability over time and corrosion resistance. With this shackle mount you can easily and safely attach a standard 3/4" screw pin shackle to existing winch cable and rope eyes. The eye is captured into the ProLink by a removable over-sized 5/8" double shear pin. This thimble works with both Hawse and Roller fairleads and will snugly cinch against each version.

Matt Mohl:

Now, while this Factor 55 ProLink is going to be a great piece of recovery equipment, it also is going to look really awesome on the front end of your Jeep. You've probably seen a lot of these, maybe at your local mall or on the trail. However, it makes a nice piece of winch jewelry up front. It really cleans it up, but in the end it's ready to recover. This is a great piece to have. I'm going to show you how to put it on the Jeep.

All you've got to do is put the thimble right through the back of your synthetic line, get that pin in, so let's get going.

We've already pulled the retention pin out, used a pair of snap ring pliers to get that retaining clip out as well. Now to put the thimble in, all you've got to do is slide it in through the back, and drop this in here. Now this little snap ring is all that holds that sheer pin in. If that were to fail, it's all built into this aluminum housing here, so it's extremely durable. This is just to make sure that pin doesn't fall out. If you set it into place, and get yourself a pair of snap ring pliers, tighten it, and then it'll fall right into a groove in there. That's when you know it's in the proper location.

Here's a close up shot of that snap ring in there. You can see that it's fully seated, and going to make sure that that pin stays into place, where it won't fall apart. The ProLink is fully mounted up on top of our Factor 55 Hawse Fairlead. It's a really awesome combo, plus it's going to be super safe when you're out on the trail. I'll show you how to put the D-ring on the front and get that full closed loop winching system. Slide your D ring over the front, place the shackle fin through it, and get it tightened down. Now with that on there, you can run a tow strap through down here. It's a completely closed loop system, meaning that this isn't going to break, and this isn't going to fail either here. You've got the full working 16,000 pounds on this, which is for more often than not going to be more than your winch capability. It's a super safe system and I really recommend it for you guys.

This Factor 55 ProLink is fully mounted up, and it's also available in a bunch of different colors and styles for the front end of your off road rig. You can find them all right here at CJPonyParts.com.
