Termination and Ends
The rope thimble is the preffered termination for winch ropes. This allows easy connection of a bow shackle. Stainless steel shackles can be useful in high wearing situations.
Some comp guys prefer to go straight onto a latching hook for speed. In this case a small loop is all you need.
The ring terminal has no strength and is designed to assist with fastening to the winch drum. A clove hitch, placed after the ring terminal on the winch drum, will ensure that the rope will not accidentally pull out. You need at least 5 turns (neat and tight) on the drum before a full load is placed on the winch.
