Fac­tor 55 Prolink Ex­pert (E)

4WDrive - - Review - www.fa ctor55.com MSRP $199.95 USD

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.
