WINCH RINGS ARE IN PRODUCTION. EXPECT 3 WEEKS FOR FULFILLMENT.
Yankum Ropes is always looking for solutions to problems both big and small and with our new Off-Set Winch Snatch Ring we have done it again. There's a million "Snatch Blocks/ Rings" on the market and they ALL do the same thing, anchor to a soft shackle where the soft shackle allows the ring to spin along with the winch line as it goes around it. This puts all the friction on the soft shackle holding the winch ring.
The off-set center hole stops the ring from rotating on the soft shackle attachment, where the friction and heat build in only 1 location, and dissipates the heat and friction on to the winch line as it slides around the ring. This allows the heat to spread out and reduces centralized heat/friction.
When using, the line should dive through hole. In this configuration, you won't have the annoyance of the line falling out of the groove,
With the Type III anodized finish, this puppy will last a lifetime. Just treat it right and it'll always be your winching buddy any time you need it.

When performing a recovery, start with a single line pull, and work up to other configurations, ie 2:1 ---> 3:1 etc. The risk of overloading your tow/connection points increases with each additional configuration. Never exceed a 5:1 pull with this ring.
A 4:1 or 5:1 pull should ONLY be done by professionals, using 2 winch rings, a safety sling, double loop 7/16" soft shackles. In these configurations, it is easy to exceed the rating of some tow/connection points, you MUST know those ratings before use.
These are not designed for heavy wrecker use. Use ONLY electric bumper mounted winches rated at 12k lb or less.
