The new TUG-FL1 fairlead is designed to make using your portable capstan winch easier and safer. The fairlead guides the rope and removes lateral strain from the winch. A fairlead is especially helpful when you use your winch for high-angled pulls. The fairlead provides a safety factor preventing the rope from sliding off the end of the capstan when pulling from high angles. If using our rope you must first remove the carabiner to enable the rope to pass through the fairlead. Please follow the 4 steps illustrated. The accessory attaches to your ETUG2 Tugger in 10 easy steps.
