Freedom Recovery Gear Winch Line Extenders are stronger than steel cable of the same diameter, and light enough to float on water ! Our large Double Soft Eye with nylon wear pads make them versatile and wear resistant and easy to rig. the 12 Strand Nuetral Brade, coils quickly and easily for storage. For greater flexibility we include a movable third wear pad in the middle in case you need to double up your rope for greater strength or as a bridal.
Our winch Line Extenders starts with Premium Dyneema® SK78 synthetic fiber based rope manufactured in Canadian ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility which maintains the highest quality standard and every batch or rope is strength tested and verified before shipping to us. Next we hand splice both ends with a locking splice, and finish with a proper length taper before we burry the 2 fid length tail for maximum strength. Before packaging we hook up all Winch Line Extenders on a custom designed tensioning table and pretention each rope so the splices are set and its ready to use when it arrives.
The final step to ensure you get the recovery gear you deserve is all of our rope products and shackle designs are sent to a company that specializes in rigging certification and destructive testing on a certified digital test bed. This gives us real Minimum Break Strength or M.B.S. for our assemblies and not a theoretical calculation.

MINIMUM BREAKING STRENGTH (MBS) IS THE MINIMUM FORCE NECESSARY TO CAUSE A PIECE OF RECOVERY GEAR TO FAIL.
Working Load Limit (WLL) is the maximum working load designed by the manufacturer. This load represents a force that is much less than that required to make the lifting equipment fail or yield.
In line with the Cordage Institute Guidelines CI 1401-19 Recommended Safety Practices for use of Fiber rope. We apply a Design Factor DF 5:1 to our Soft Shackles, winch lines and Winch Line Extensions.
As an Example, that mean a product with a Minimum Break Strength of 40,000 lbs would have a Working load Limit of 8000 lbs.
