Trailer winch strap replacement

Recommended Posts

Replaced the winch strap on our extreme trailer today. Pretty straight forward except the bolt that came with the new strap was too long and the original bolt was badly bent. Is it normal for this thru bolt to be bent from use of the winch?

Hmm...just did mine and included bolt that is used to wind strap into the winch was too narrow and would have moved around too much - possibly gouging out holes larger. What brand did you buy? Mine was Boat Buckle brand, 15 foot.

Since existing bolt was fine, just reused that one...

Not sure what brand of winch strap, bought it at our local marina. It was 20ft long. The bolt fit but was too long and stopped the winch from turning. Hopefully it is all installed correctly with a new bolt.
