Factor 55 Prolink Expert (E)
If you are still using a conventional winch hook, perhaps this Flatlink product will finally convince you to make the change to a closed loop system. The Prolink ‘Expert’ differs from the regular Prolink with a triangular shaped opening. This design allows you to pass either the pin or the shackle end of your D-ring through, and it’s large enough to slip over OEM tow hooks. The design also eliminates some rigging junction issues. Constructed of powdercoated 6000 series aluminum, with ultra smooth rounded corners to protect soft shackles, and designed for either synthetic or steel line, it has a max load limit of 16,000 lbs and a tested ultimate strength of 40,000 lbs. It is a fairly tall piece at 11.6 cm, so vehicles with low winch mounts should consider another Prolink product to maintain a better approach angle.
