For all winching operations A must when using wire ropes and essential when entering winch competitions - even when using a synthetic rope.
WINCH BLANKET FROM GOODWINCHOur Winch Blanket, (or Winch Sail), from Goodwinch is a must for all winching operations. Made from a durable, heavy duty, waterproof fabric in a bright orange, it shows up well to highlight that winching is in progress. We recommend the use of a good Winch Blanket when using wire or synthetic ropes. Using a Winch Blanket, (or Winch Sail) reduces the risk of severe damage. It can be used to deaden the ferocity of a catapulted flying rope, of which the consequences could be disastrous. Our new, very robust Winch Blanket is easy to use with Velcro strips on the inside to hold the blanket closed onto the rope. Whilst rigging, the winch assistant can hang the blanket (inside out) over their shoulders and utilise the integral, internal pocket to carry snatch blocks, shackles etc, leaving both hands free to climb up banks and over rough terrain safely.
