Can Tensioner be Removed from Bulldog Winch BDW15020 to Make it Easier to Freespool


I received the winch a couple weeks ago and I went to install it today . I noticed there’s a piece of curved metal pressing firmly on the drum , I’m assuming to keep the rope from nesting . Is this piece suppose to stay on or does it have to come off . I didn’t notice anything in the instructions and it’s pretty hard to pull the line out by hand when I unlock it .

I spoke with my contact at Bulldog winch and he stated that you can remove that tensioner piece you mentioned on winch # BDW15020 which should make it easier to freespool! So that is great news.
