The turnbuckle body is left hand threaded on one end and right hand threaded at the opposite end. Without twisting other rigging components, slack is removed from the rigging assembly and tension is increased by turning only the turnbuckle body, drawing both end fittings into the body simultaneously. The jaw end fittings are also threaded left and right.
Jaw end fittings allow for quick attachment or detachment to hardware that cannot open, such as wire rope eyes, chains or eye bolts, and are ideal for use with closed or fixed anchor points.
Turnbuckles are designed for straight pull, in-line applications. They are not intended for lifting, as they are designed to take up slack and apply tension for support or suspension, or to adjust the length of rope, cable, or tie rods.
Offered in corrosion resistant hot dip galvanized 1045 steel.
