When working with an electric winch safety should always come first. The Keeper Winch Safety Blanket should be used when operating an electric winch with wire rope . The blanket helps prevent rope recoil in the event of a rope failure. The blank will help the rope fall to the ground and absorb most of the kinetic energy should it occur. The blanket should be positioned around the mid-point of the rope and secured with the velcro strips near the top. Equipped with pockets located on each side to add additional weight for safety or to be used for accessory storage.
