Review of Bubba Rope Mini Grabber

Posted by AJ Koenes on Aug 26th 2022

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber is the safe and easy way to connect a synthetic winch line to your UTV winch drum.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber is a tiny, compact, and simple-to-use tool that will make winding your synthetic winch rope on your UTV, ATV, or Trailer a snap.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber comes in a tiny, compact package, and the product appears to be very simple to use. The part that is bright orange sticks out the most, especially when you're approaching the end of your spool. The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber's operation is really simple to follow. This piece is not difficult for novices to utilize or understand.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber's setup and usage are straightforward. There are many free videos on the internet that can answer certain questions and help you with the installation, but all you have to do is thread one of the ends of your artificial rope through one of the ends of the Bubba Rope Mini Grabber. Then, once you have secured the mini grabber to your winch's drum with the remaining of your artificial rope line, wrap it around it and tighten it down. Because there was some tape on the backside of the tiny grabber, I paid no attention to it. To ensure my synthetic winch line was safe for safety reasons, I wrapped it carefully around the tiny grabber.

Unfortunately, we do not have a cool graph to make since the specifications are rather limited with this Bubba Rope Mini Grabber. It was utilized with a 3/16 steel winch line connected to a UTV, but based on how it's built, I think it'll also work with a quarter-inch synthetic winch line as well. The product is compact yet adaptable. The majority of the pressure is applied to your drum rather than the tiny grabber. The tiny grabber serves as a placeholder for the end of the winch line.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber's Field test results were outstanding. The winch line never let it go, and the mini grabber worked as intended. Because they aren't strong enough to keep the rope secure after several wraps, it took me a few wraps to get the winch tight enough to activate the push button. Hand wraps are recommended for the first wrap since they are not sturdy enough to keep the rope in place. On this tiny grabber, everything is about technique. After wrapping 50 feet of rope around your drum with the little grabber, you should be able to stretch the synthetic line and tighten it against the drum as you wrap another 50 feet of rope on top of it.

One of the great things about the little grabber is that it may be reused. In my situation, I didn't need to utilize the three M tape backing on the Bubba Rope Mini Grabber. So if I want to unwind or rewrap my drum, I don't have to worry about it. A second advantage of using a Bubba Rope Mini Grabber is that it saves time when installing synthetic lines. If you ever need to replace your synthetic line, replacing it is simple and inexpensive without having to buy another mini grabber.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber's construction is unique. It appears to be a looped piece of nylon webbing with a middle retainer made out of the same substance as heat shrink tubing. If you've ever worked with heat shrink tubing, you'll know that it's extremely hard and slick, making initial wraps on your drum difficult. This is alleviated by 3M tape, which serves as the backing. I decided not to utilize it so that I could reuse the tiny grabber at a later date. It also enables me to easily remove the mini grabber. If you apply 3M tape to your winch, you may find yourself in a bind trying to remove the mini grab or re-spooling it for future use.

The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber is an excellent tool that saves time and effort when changing or installing a synthetic winch line on a UTV or all-terrain vehicle. It can also work rather well with smaller winch lines since it is not big enough to be used with conventional large-sized winches found on most motor vehicles. The Bubba Rope Mini Grabber comes in different colors and is available in a full-size version that works with regular full-sized winch lines.

I have come across a brand-new method for removing trees from a hill, one that works beautifully. As you can see, the Bubba Rope Mini Grabber worked effectively when I was pulling trees down a hill, and it stayed put in every scenario. When you insert a little grabber, you will notice that recovery techniques are really easy to understand. It demonstrates that the stress is placed on the number of wraps around your drum rather than the number of pulls made with your arms. The fewer wraps there are around the drum, the fewer wraps there will be on your winch line as you spool out of it. Because of this, your line has a greater possibility of blowing away. This is an important truth that no gadget, not even a tiny grabber, can prevent. You must exercise caution. To avoid your drum unwinding too far, take good care of the product.
