Bow Safety Cable.

Does anyone on here make or sell these with a loop and snap hook. Its gotta be better and more convenient than using rope.

I have looked on fleabay and internet but can only find hitch cables.

Cheers K.

you looking for a safety cable from trailer to bow eye?
Few links of chain, stainless snap hook one end and a shackle to the trailer at the other n "bobs your uncle", just clip on when you finish winching.
Oh and take it off just before you launch it

Can you undo the eye and just use a spliced piece of rope
I was looking at mine on sun and can get away with a bolt that goes through the wick post and eye

Thanks but I would prefere cable rather than chain as I have not got a lot of room between the bow eye and the actual winch hook itself.

I was looking at those on fleabay Nick, the only thing that puts me off is the snap hook which doesn't look strong enough to me, especially if being tractor launched with 2 or 3 people going down the ramp with fuel and kit on board. If the winch snapped would it do the job.

These days fibre products are strongern then the same size wire.

I have replaced many wire products with dyneema of various types as well as PBO and vectran which are all soft fibre modern replacements.....

If you can give me a working load I can spec you something that would suit you with any end fitting on.....

The only down side is chaf, but the are chaf covers that can be installed over the core material.
