UltraHook XTV Rope Guard

Please note, this is the Rope Guard only, Ultrahook not included.

Factor 55 rope guards attach to winch line shackle mounts to protect synthetic ropes from damaging UV light, abrasion, and impact, and can be used as a skid surface while attempting tall climbs or vertical obstacles.

While their look might be understated, their benefit is high and they’re very functional. These plates help to hide the exposed area of a synthetic winch line creating a shield to guard against impact and UV damage, thus helping to extend your rope’s service life. With just basic hand tools, these plates install quickly and easily and add invaluable protection to your winch’s rope.

Our Rope Guards are available for FlatLink, FlatLink XTV, FlatLink XXL, UltraHook, and UltraHook XTV.



Closed System Winching™ is a technique that uses rigging comprised entirely of closed-link hardware. The result is the most secure and reliable winch rigging available.
In Closed System Winching, the traditional hook is upgraded to a patented Factor 55 ProLink®, FlatLink®, or UltraHook® winch line shackle mount. When combined with a shackle, you’ll have an attachment that will contain loads even during momentary slack conditions where winch loads may shift. With Closed System Winching you get the extra security and confidence needed to tackle the most demanding winch recoveries.
