As practical as sliced bread, the Daystar? Winch Isolator stops the rattles. Installation is as easy as 1, 2, 3! Simply disconnect your winch hook, run your cable through the isolator and reinstall your hook. You're done! Once installed the Daystar? Isolator rests between your hook and the fairlead and will not interfere with winching operations.
Keeping your winch hook safe and secure is easy with the Daystar Hawse Fairlead Isolator. It works as a nice safety feature to drop the winch line, should it ever snap. Simply install, cinch, and enjoy!

This thing is a wonderful idea however there are some major flaws. This DOES NOT WORK if you have a Smittybilt winch. The fairlead roller they supply is about .5" smaller in horizontal width, therefore i had to use a table saw to cut it down to size. also THIS DOES NOT work if you want to also add on the roller snap on license plate bracket. Does not leave enough room for the clamps to fit over the rollers. I was finally able to get it to work with my smittybilt winch and the license plate bracket but only after chopping off a total of .5" on both sides for a total of 1" cutdown. Other then those flaws, it is a wonderful product.

I had read the earlier reviews that indicated some people's hook did not lay flat in this isolator. I have a Warn M8000, with the stock hook. The hook sort of snaps onto the plug in the isoloator, so it's perfectly secure, and definitely lays flat. In fact I have my front license plate mounted using the Mag-Lite brackets (a fairly common method) and it works perfectly with that, except that I had to grind away a bit from each lower corner of the isolator, so the clips had room to clear; since the isolator fills the space between the fairlead rollers.
