Here is the trick about how to attach a WINCH ROPE to the WINCH DRUM to make sure the winch rope stays connected to where it should be.
It’s a Plasma Lock as Red Winch calls them, and is designed to secure the rope to the winch drum. The normal terminals on the end of a winch rope are very light-duty and will fail if any force is applied to them. The Plasma Lock makes sure you maintain a minimum number of turns on your winch drum at all times. In this video, I show you how to install a Plasma Lock to your winch.
In the interests of disclosure, I don’t make any commission on the sale of the Plasma lock. To support my channel see the comment further down about A247.
