Factor 55 introduces created an amazing line of Aluminum Hawse fairleads. The 1.0 and 1.5 fairleads are CNC machined from 1 and 1.5 inch thick USA 6000 series aluminum bar. The industry standard fairlead thickness is .75 inches thick. The thicker, Factor 55 aluminum bar results in a larger outer fillet radius for the synthetic rope to slide against. This results in less stress on the rope fibers during high angular pulls, increasing the life of your expensive synthetic rope.
The 1.0 and 1.5 fairleads are the industry’s first Hawse fairleads compatible with the larger ½ inch diameter rope tube thimbles. The rope slot height opening is taller to allow the larger ½ inch thimbles to pass through. There is also a machined outer corner chamfer to reduce rope stress for those that plan on using the winch as a front suspension “suck down” device. These fairleads come in a durable MIL-A8625F TYPE III gun metal gray hard anodized finish with a machined logo.
Warning – Always confirm that the synthetic rope cannot make contact to any sharp edges like the opening the steel fairlead mounting plate or bumper opening. In some cases it may be required to grind this slot larger. Always sand and deburr this opening after any grinding operation.
