The MAXTRAX Winch Ring is generally safer than a steel snatch block. Steel blocks use the same ideology but are heavy and require hard shackles. While high-quality and well-maintained traditional steel snatch blocks are unlikely to break, if something in the setup, like the anchor, fails, the snatch block can become a heavy projectile.

The idea here aligns with MAXTRAX's aim to remove heavy items like steel winch cables and shackles from recovery setups wherever possible.

The Winch Ring 120 is also significantly lighter than a steel snatch block, saving valuable storage weight in your rig.

Double Line Pulls Explained:

For those new to winch recoveries, let’s explain a double-line pull. Running the winch line through a pulley (traditionally a steel snatch block pulley) and back to the vehicle makes it possible almost to double the winch's capacity. Your truck only moves forward half that distance for every length of winch we roll on the drum.

Think of it as low-range for your winch. Sometimes, a single-line pull will be more than enough, but it’s an easy trick to get more winching power when you need it in extreme recovery conditions.

The MAXTRAX Winch Ring rigs up in the same layout as a traditional snatch ring. It’s designed for synthetic winch lines only. It’s a simple matter of placing the winch line over the ring and connecting the Winch Ring to an anchor point using a soft shackle as pictured.
