The Wedge is a lightweight, patented, soft shackle only alternative to a traditional Winch Hook. The channel through the Wedge offers optimal support for soft shackles and eliminates risk of damage compared to other products with sharper edges and tighter bend radii. The design of the Wedge makes it exclusively for the use with Soft Shackles, and ergonomically designed to make it is simpler and easier to drag your rope up the track. The addition of the Integrated Rope Protection (IRP) protects the rope through the thimble from impact or other possible damage or wear.
The Wedge is manufactured from Aircraft Grade 7075 Aluminium for optimum strength, without excess weight, and is coated in Australia using Cerakote™. Cerakote™ is a ceramic coating designed to give strong UV stability matched with a durable, hardwearing surface. Rated to an MBS of 22,000kg, easily the strongest winch shackle on the market!
It conveniently uses our Rubber Fairlead Engagement Pads (RFEP) to engage with and protect the surface of the fairlead.
