I used this kit at a Bill Burke training this past September and learned how to splice/repair rope. This is a complete kit and all you will need in the field!
Everything you need to splice your winch line
Posted by Brenton Corns on 6th Jun 2014
While attending the Overland Expo 2014 (West), I had the opportunity to learn how to splice synthetic line from former Camel Trophy participant Andy Dacey. We used kits supplied by Viking Offroad, and they had everything needed to make the splice, either an end-to-end or eye loop. As soon as I returned home, I ordered my own splicing kit and have been practicing ever since!
If a winchline breaks, this is the tool to propely fix it to retain the same strength & safety as before the break. Synthetic winchlines break for 3 reasons. Most commonly they get abraded or cut minimizing the strength relative to the cut or abrasion. Reason two is due to snatching or towing. This should never be done w/ winchlines, steel or synthetic, because they do not stretch & cannot hold up to the shock. Reason three is that winchlines are sometimes incorrectly installed on a mismatched winch, such as an ATV line on a 9,000 Lb winch. It is very easy to mend the line, but the right tools & instructions are necessary. This is the tool.
