Safety Thimble II “The Original” by TRE – Black

The Black Safety Thimble II by Tactical Recovery Equipment is designed and manufactured 100% in the USA! It is a precision made CNC machined 6061 Aluminum heavy duty thimble. The Winch Safety Thimble is designed to prevent the thimble from getting pulled into the Hawse Fairlead where most accidents happen in winching, often due to winch “run-on” from electric winches. Unlike hooks and standard eye thimbles it does not scratch your aluminum hawse fairlead which causes damage to synthetic winch ropes. It is also the lightest and most versatile recovery option to be used with synthetic rope.

Black Safety Thimble II Features:

  • CNC precision made 6061 Aluminum
  • Designed for 5/16 to 7/16″ synthetic winch ropes
  • Designed to be used with a 3/4″ shackle that fits into the safety thimble in either direction
  • Smooth lightweight design, that does not cause damage to your fairlead
  • Made in the USA

NOTE: Winch Safety Thimbles are designed to be used with shackles for rigging.  Hooks can not be used.

*Please note that while TRE uses the highest quality anodizing process, all colors except Black are prone to fading when exposed to direct sunlight over time.
