The Tuff Stuff® Polished Aluminum Hawse Fairlead is specifically designed for use with Synthetic winch ropes. The polished & rounded edges allow the synthetic or Dyneema winch rope to run smoothly without binding up. Tuff Stuff®'s aluminum fairlead also eliminates damage your rope and does not build up friction as a metal fairlead would.
The Tuff Stuff® aluminum fairlead prevents the synthetic rope from fraying on the sharp metal roller fairlead edges, which can cause irreparable damage to your expensive rope, leading it to snap while winching your rig, or somebody else. The use of a synthetic rope is also a much safer alternative to cable as a cable can create a major safety issue if broken under a load.
