    Does anyone make a safety thimble isolator that can be installed once the line is already on the winch spool?

    I think you would get better response in a different topic.

    That's actually from factor 55.

    OP is talking about a rubber thimble isolator though, not what you posted. An isolator will keep the thimble from banging and making noise on the fairlead.

    gotcha.

    OP, if you're ok with the look, i'd jsut cut a circular piece of rubber with a slid leading to a hole in the center. just slide it on when you pull in your line, and put it in your pocket when the winch is in use.

    This is the item I'm looking for and I think your approach Colin is the likely solution. I will probably get two, cut one for now and when I get around to unspooling the line put the uncut one on.
    Thanks

    sounds like a good plan. I can't imagine a piece of polyurethane like that cost too much either.

    Actually I was just looking at hockey pucks at Dicks Sporting Goods. 1"X3" and just $2.00 Drill a 5/16" hole and cut a slot to the center. The viking isolators are $8.00 to $3.00 shipping. I can ge the puck tomorrow and order the isolator. I think this will be a quick temporary fix.
