Please NOTE: The Safety Thimble is no longer in production and sold by Viking Offroad, however the Safety Thimble Isolator is still available through Viking Offroad.
The Safety Thimble isolator is used to protect fairleads (hawse & rollers) from metal to metal contact that can scratched & damage the fairleads. If winchlines are not properly installed under vehicle load, or you forget to tighten the thimble against the fairlead, it has a tendencey to loosen up a bit & scratch up the fairlead. This is a simple & inexpensive solution to provide a cushion between parts.
Note: NOT FOR ATV SAFETY THIMBLES (made for the large truck thimbles)
