For you hardcore off-roaders and off-road trainers, the new UltraHook Rope Guard provides complete synthetic rope protection from damaging UV light as well as impact and abrasion damage. As you can see, when using the Rope Guard, all exposed synthetic rope surfaces are positioned behind the guard and fairlead, allowing you to use the Rope Guard as a skid surface when attempting to climb tall vertical obstacles. Made from Kaiser billet 6000 series aluminum and clear anodized for corrosion protection. Easy installation with 4 drive rivets. Keep your synthetic winch rope where it belongs – out of the sun and behind the fairlead.
