crimped my first broken winch cable connector the other day just like the factory one at the far left of the pic







HOOK STRAP
Bought the connector at a cable/chain supply place. Bag of 10 for $4. Looks like a figure 8 and u put the cable in and loop it back through and squeeze it with a brake flaring tool clamp(1/2"hole)in a vice, to make it round.Worked perfectly and looks like factory except for the gripping lines from the clamp (racing stripes).They're crimping tool was over $200 and ive seen cheezy bolt cutter style ones for $50ish which wouldn't work near as good. Way better than them crappy u-bolt style wire clamps that dont fit through the roller fairlead

I'm facingthe need to make a repair to my winch cable in the future. Any advise from you or others as to how to do the crimping. Pictures would be really helpful as I take on this project. I don't want to spend big bucks buying a swagging tool, well over $100.

Any possible way to have you take a picture of the tool you used to do the crimping when you had it in the vice. A picture of the figured eight thing you made the fix with would also be appreciated.

Thanks in Advance.

Just put the crimp (attachment) on an anvil or top of a vice and beat the hell out of it with a Hammer...I did mine one like that about a year ago...

here's one of the connector thingymabob before crimping. Put the wire rope in and squeeze it the best way you know how to make it look like your original.



and a brake flaring tool like i used

With the synthetic rope, you can just tie it in a knot and be done with it. To each his own, though.
