You asked for it and we listened. Factor 55 introduces our new 10 inch Standard Duty Soft Shackle. The Factor 55 10 inch Standard Duty Soft Shackles are Made in the USA under the uncompromised Factor 55 quality standards. Like all Factor 55 rigging products, these shackles have been lab and field tested to assure consistent repeatable minimum breaking strength values. Each Standard Duty soft shackle is constructed of 7/16 diameter UHMWPE 12 strand rope similar in construction to synthetic winch lines. WLL and minimum breaking strengths clearly marked. Minimum Breaking Strength – 39,000 pounds WLL – 7,800 Pounds. Weight – 6.3 ounces. Similar to our Extreme Duty Soft Shackles, each individual soft shackle is serialized for manufacturing date and material lot traceability. You can now decide whether you need full outer sheath protection for severe conditions or a less extreme, more affordable option. The Factor 55 10 inch Standard Duty Soft Shackle will be a great addition to any recovery kit.

@nissanmylo making quick work of this recovery with his F55 Kinetic Rope. 🇺🇸😎🤘Fun Fact about @navajomylo - not only is his photography amazing, he spends his time taking @goalzero solar lighting to Navajo families who don’t have lights or electricity in their homes. #lendahelpinghand #mylorules ・・・ On our way down to Monument Valley to do more solar installations for families without electricity, we needed a ladder. We turned around South of Moab and saw this truck in a pond. Though we were in a rush, we took a few minutes to help him. The tow strap is from @factor55llc — I should have told him to put it in neutral. Another quick rescue. We eventually found a ladder. More homes have light on Navajoland. #TITANadventure #CallingAllTitans #NissanMylo - @nis@nissanusatrucks @general_tire @visionwheel @magnaflow @airaid @nissanusa ・・・ #factor55 #closedsystemwinching #shadebrigade #precisionengineering #professionalrecovery #itsyourwinchonlysafer #madeinusa #madeintheusa #buyamerican #winch #winchsafer #winchsafety #vehiclerecovery #trailridesmatter #racerecovery #innovationnotimitation #hookreplacement Closed System Winching™

In just a few weeks, Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame Inductee and owner of Adventure Architects LLC, @chriscollardphoto will be joined by fellow Hall of Fame Inductee and Jeeping guru @rickpewe , retracing the tracks of the 1969 Simpson Desert East-West Australia Expedition (the first Jeep crossing of the entire Australian continent). To celebrate this milestone adventure, Ben Davidson of @sevenslotexpedition , along with Ian McDonald and John Eggleston (two of the three surviving members of the original expedition), Hall of Fame Inductee @suemead.adventuregirl , and Justin He will head a group of Jeeps from different eras including TJ, JK and new JL Wranglers replicating the 1969 adventure. The crossing will take 20 days +/- and cover 3,000 miles through some of toughest outback terrain. Highlights and challenges for the crew will include the remote tracks and deep, soft, unforgiving sand of the northern Simpson Desert before reaching Alice Springs. From there they will head to Uluru and Kata Tjuta before heading west across Outback WA to reach Steep Point and the Indian Ocean. Crossing 37 degrees of longitude. We are honored to have been chosen as the supplier of winch safety and vehicle recovery products for this historic adventure. The 50th Anniversary project- BFGoodrich East-West Australia Jeep Expedition – starts in a few weeks and we wish Chris and his entire team a safe and successful journey. @bfgoodrichtires | @jeep | @warnindustries | @bestopteam | @teraflexsuspension | @jeepkonection_offroadkonection | @jeepactionmagazine | @jeepfreeks | @offroad_animal #builtonbfg #km3 #jeep #sevenslotexpedition #warn #teraflex #bestop #jeepkonection #offroad_animal #factor55 #closedsystemwinching #shadebrigade #precisionengineering #professionalrecovery #itsyourwinchonlysafer #madeinusa #madeintheusa #buyamerican #winch #winchsafer #winchsafety #vehiclerecovery #trailridesmatter #racerecovery #innovationnotimitation #hookreplacement #equippedtoexplore

@dooganflynn with the full send this weekend while prerunning @gambler500idaho @thegambler500 those fateful words “Better grab a strap..” 😂 With a HitchLink 2.0 and Soft Shackle he was out in no time. Love using USA Made/Idaho Made 🇺🇸 equipment in the Idaho Backcountry. The Sawtooths are definitely breathtaking. #dontmovehere #idahoisclosed #idahomade ・・・ #factor55 #closedsystemwinching #shadebrigade #precisionengineering #professionalrecovery #itsyourwinchonlysafer #madeinusa #madeintheusa #buyamerican #winch #winchsafer #winchsafety #vehiclerecovery #trailridesmatter #racerecovery #innovationnotimitation #hookreplacement Closed System Winching™

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT You asked for it and we listened. Take a look at our new Made In USA tow straps. These straps are tested and made to Factor 55 specifications by a certified USA rigging manufacturer. We offer these straps in two models, Standard and Extreme duty. Both straps are a double ply 2 inch wide by 30 foot long constructed of low stretch 100% Polyester. Both straps have Cordura reinforced eyes but the entire 30 foot length of the Extreme Duty strap is sleeved in Cordura for maximum abrasion protection. Like all Factor 55 soft goods each strap is individually serialized for date and material lot traceability. All straps are clearly marked with Working Load Limits (WLL) based on the various strap configurations. We prefer double ply 2 inch strap construction over wider single ply 3 and 4 inch wide straps. We have discovered that the wider strap edges get abraded and worn easily versus narrower straps. Remember, tow straps are not dynamic elastic recovery straps like “Snatch”, “Yank” and Kinetic Ropes. Tow straps retain very little elasticity and are designed for longer distance prolonged towing. Because of this, the Factor 55 Standard and Extreme Duty Tow Straps may also be used as winch line extensions. Visit our website for more details on these strap differences. You will not find a higher quality tow strap on the market today. Have a safe weekend.

TBT – Congratulations to @paul_horschel for winning the premiere @ultra4racing 4400 class at the recent El Rey de Las Bajas. 🇲🇽🏁🏆 Winners don’t take chances with possibly damaging the end of their winch lines. The UltraHook and Rope Guard were designed for just this type of race abuse. Note on Paul’s race car that there is no visible portion of Paul’s synthetic winch line in harms way. Even the very end of his line is safely stowed behind the Rope Guard. Paul chooses to use the Rope Guard as a skid plate and bashes into obstacles without any damage to the end of his winch line. Take a look at what Paul did to our skid plate after a King of The Hammers finish. The end of the winch line was undamaged. Aluminum and Titanium for the win. Great job Paul! Factor 55 – Race Tested, and as always Made In The USA 🇺🇸 #factor55 #closedsystemwinching #shadebrigade #precisionengineering #professionalrecovery #itsyourwinchonlysafer #madeinusa #madeintheusa #buyamerican #winch #winchsafer #winchsafety #vehiclerecovery #trailridesmatter #racerecovery #innovationnotimitation #hookreplacement

Our friends over at @7p4x4 attended the recent @overlandexpo in Flagstaff and taught several classes including how to properly field repair/splice a broken synthetic winch line. If you haven’t already learned this simple but very useful technique, you should. Remember, due to the slippery nature of UHMWPE fibers, tying knots in synthetic winch line reduces the strength by 50% or more. Learn to splice, it could mean the difference between getting your vehicle unstuck or not. #selfreliance #factor55 #closedsystemwinching #shadebrigade #precisionengineering #professionalrecovery #itsyourwinchonlysafer #madeinusa #madeintheusa #buyamerican #winch #winchsafer #winchsafety #vehiclerecovery #trailridesmatter #racerecovery #innovationnotimitation #hookreplacement
