1-winchEver been annoyed by the way synthetic winch rope bunches at one end of the drum when you’re pulling to one side? If so, the Goodwinch Sliding Hawse is the answer to your prayers. It’s basically two fairleads, which fit over the payout for your winch: the bottom one is static, but the top one shifts from side-to-side, meaning you can control the way the rope pulls back into place.

The Sliding Hawse can be locked in a variety of positions, and is very easy to use. It’s made out of aluminium, which means it will be durable. Better still, by ensuring an even distribution of rope on the winch drum, it maintains an even pulling power, regardless of the direction in which your recovery takes you.
