Abstract : This invention relates to a cable guide for a powered winch in a military vehicle. The improvement consists of a cable guide that includes three rollers having concave edge surfaces guidably engaged with segmental surface areas of the cable. One of the rollers is carried by an auxiliary frame that can be swung away from its normal position to thread or unthread the cable. The three rollers are equi-spaced around the cable guide space so that normal cable loads are borne by at least two of the rollers.
