Order Quantity 1 = 1 SXS Winch Ring   

For use with synthetic HMPE winch line and SXS or smaller vehicles ONLY

WARNING: When performing a SXS winch recovery, start with a single line pull (1:1), 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 pull should ONLY be done by professionals, using 2 winch rings, a safety catch sling, and double loop 5/16" soft shackles are required. 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-duty wrecker use. Use ONLY electric bumper-mounted winches rated at 8k lb or less. NEVER use Steel Cable with this ring, Only use a Synthetic (HMPE) winch line no larger than 5/16" diameter. Not for over-head use.


Weighing in at 1.85 lbs you can now reduce your total weight in your recovery gear kit SIGNIFICANTLY. Two of these rings (and three soft shackles{2 double loops and 1 single loop}) can do the job of 4 standard snatch blocks and 5 hard shackles! That is a huge reduction in total weight and gives you a massive increase in configuration options! Gone are the days of worrying about corrosion or bearing maintenance after a messy and wet recovery. 

High-quality HMPE winch line can handle operating temperatures of 190°-212° Fahrenheit  (100°C) and typically begin to melt around 300° Fahrenheit (144°C) over an extended period of exposure.  The SXS Off-set Winch Ring operates in temperature bands less than that of allowable maximum HMPE operating temperatures ensuring your winch line is as happy as can be. Current parasitic friction loss while pulling at peak loads is estimated to be around 10% depending on the quality of the winch line coating.

A traditional winch ring requires someone to babysit the winch line, making sure it doesn't fall out of the groove while the line is slack. Also, if you have ever winched while climbing rocks, the vehicle can lurch forward, causing the line to drop out of the groove, then the vehicle can slip back down, causing the full tention to be placed on the soft shackle. Needless to say, it needed a solution for this. With the offset winch ring, on a 2:1 set up, you can dive through the hole instead of the groove, now the line will never fall out.


We designed the offset winch ring as the first to allow an extension to pass through the ring, whether it be through the hole or around the groove. You can now park farther away from the stuck vehicle and reduce the amount of times you have to stop and redo the rigging. Simply connect two winchlines by using the "cow hitch" shown in the image.


From birth to finished product, the manufacturing process covers less than 150 miles.

Dan from Flawed Offroad breaks down how the winch ring works and shows it in action.

Casey Ladelle dropped a video on the new winch ring and broke the internet. This is his response to people who resist innovation.


Yankum has set out to constantly revolutionize the recovery world. We have done it again.

Single Ring Setup

With a single ring, you are able to place tension on two parts of the line, making one line act like two winches. This allows you to either double your pulling force, or redirect your pull, in the event you are not able to line your vehicle up with the stuck vehicle.

Two Ring Setup

Here we add one more winch ring. On a redirect we now see a 100% increase in pulling power over a single ring setup. In the alternative setup, we're generating around 2.7x the input, while distributing the force across multiple points on the stuck vehicle. This decreases the load placed on the winch, the winchline and recovery points.
