Specs. Factor 55 offers this winch lock to protect your investment. The winch lock bolt is a custom 3/8-16 inch security bolt made from high quality, 1045 carbon alloy steel. The bolt is heat treated to grade 5 yield strength for superb performance.

Construction. The key patterned head bolt is proprietary, and the matching key isn't something anyone can just pick up at the hardware store. The winch lock bolt can't be removed with ordinary screw drivers, pliers, or other commonly sold tools. If you use this winch lock, you can rest assured that your Wrangler's winch won't go missing.

Application. This lock bolts into place by replacing one of the existing 3/8-16 winch bolts. This bolt works with any 1987 - 2019 YJ, TJ, JK or JL Wrangler fitted with a winch.

          Winch lock

          Stripped out way to easy, not happy with this product! If it’s that easy to strip out, is it really going to secure my winch

          Good stuff

          It fits, it locks, a bit pricey and no sticker. Overall it's cheaper than replacing a stolen winch.

          Good Idea

          Heavy duty and secure. In retrospect it probably wasn't needed since the winch bolts that are now covered by a Deegan 38 front skid plate are not readily accessible. But should someone go through all that trouble, can't hurt to stump them with this.

          Winch Lock

          Nice affordable piece of safety feature to have a little more confidence and piece of mind, easy to install but very hard to take off with out the key. Very happy with it.

          I have to park my Jeep on the street out of sight of my place. I feel like my winch is safe from sticky fingers thanks to this little gem!

          Simple and effective

          This is a simple solution for keeping your winch yours (and not a thief's). Install is as simple as replacing one of the factory mounting bolts. The only reason that I'm dinging this from 5 stars is that the price is ridiculous for a single bolt. Even recognizing that it includes the install tool, the $30 is highway robbery.

          Winch Lock

          Does what it's supposed to do... you may want to look at your winch mount- this lock nut was not accessible once the Smitybilt bumper was mounted.

          Comforting Security!!

          Just Installed the Factor 55 Winch Lock Assembly and it couldn't be more easy than removing a winch bolt and replacing with this lock, it screws right in with the key and locks tight. Put your key away somewhere safe and forget about it!

          Careful which holes you use

          I bought two of these (I'm overprotective) to use on my new 12K Barricade winch. The fit was easy and perfect, though I did notice one thing to be mindful of. When installing these under the winches in some bumpers, you need to make sure to put the winch lock in the forward 2 bolt holes. That is, don't use them in the bolt holes closest to the radiator. There is a plastic trim piece that is between the front cowling and the frame, which is used to cover the gap between the grill and the bumper. On some bumpers, this trim piece is directly under the 2 closest holes on your winch plate, so you can either drill holes for the bolts to go through, or just use the holes that are farthest forward for the winch locks (that's what I did). Don't lose the key either, or you'll be forced to use a grinder to cut them off if you ever need to remove them. These are beasts, so I am confident that they'll do a great job of keeping my winch mounted to the bumper.
