Pulled out??

You mean to tell me that the retainer on the end of the winch cable cant even hold up to 12,000lbs of pull??



Keep a couple move raps on the drum next time

I shortened the cabe on my M15000, the original end looks like an automotive battery cable lug crimped on. My girlfriend took it to a store that makes custom battery cables, they wouldnt put an end on it because it was a winch cable. She took it to a winch cable store for an end and they wouldnt do it because part of the cable was a little flattened. She ended up getting a bolt on end for a house ground cable.

Battery cable crimp lugs are what we put on our lines if people want them. They aren't for pulling, just for starting to wrap the line around the drum.

I just use duct tape to start my syn line.

Tape the end to the drum then flip the tape over and wrap the drum with the sticky side up, flip the tape back over, stick it down and tear it off.

I find that helps if your syn line gets loose and tries to spin on the drum.

I'd like to see the guy that ties a knot in a piece of 3/8" wire rope!

I am using a piece of accessory cord instead of winch rope for demo. Pretend it has a eye splice like your working end of your winch rope. Couple things why I don't like thimble's in the end of your splice as well. You can use the rope like i am showing in the picture to instantly start winching to someone's bumper or hitch etc. without using any shackle or anything that will come flying back and catch you in the teeth. So a girth hitch is when you run your eye around the drum and run the tail threw the eye. It will lock down per direction of pull. if its's backwards it will spin. The option of duct taping it intially is good for the first few wraps in addition. Its just a much better way then the crimp garbage.

Clove hitch, some tape on the first 3-5 wraps, and you should be good.

One other reason I like the M8274-50s I have, they have a hole to place the rope through and tie a figure 8 and then do the tape trick...good stuff.

It pulled out on the first pull?

You likely failed then. Either at keeping enough wraps on the drum or by NOT loading the cable on the drum under tension before using it.
