Seems that all the winches/lines I have seen are about the same. A little lug for 2 gauge wire.

It just places the end of the rope, doesn't hold anything.

You could try the Red Green method of securing the end.

I googled after your suggestion and couldn't find the red green method, but did find some people putting another eye on the rope and looping it around the drum choker style.. that lug with sharp edges just scares me sitting right next to all my new rope...

Seriously, since there is no strength in the bolted crimp terminal method, duct tape may indeed be perfect.

The adhesive may melt a bit in the heat of the winch in certain situations, but you shouldn't unspool that much anyway.
