Universal XTV Splice On Winch Thimble (00355-04) by Factor 55®. Finish: Black. Compatible with: ATV / UTV. Splice on thimble for UTV/ATV winches. The world’s first splice on synthetic rope shackle mounting thimble with rope protection and integrated rubber pad for UTV/ATV. The unique machined rope passage provides a tough outer barrier to protect against rope impact and abrasion as well as UV exposure protection.
- Unlike the Factor 55 ProLink XTV and UltraHook XTV shackle mount products, the Splicer XTV requires synthetic rope splicing knowledge. Factor 55 recommends either the locking brummel splice or long bury splice.

- Connects to the pin end of common 3/4" shackles
- For synthetic rope diameters up to 5/16"
