The Turnbuckle Assembly
Lastly, we’d be remiss not to talk about the turnbuckle. These devices are also known as stretching screws. Its two ends are threaded in opposite directions, allowing you to increase tension between cables without having to twist or rotate them. Turnbuckles are used in construction, manufacturing, and even the entertainment industry. If you want the full turnbuckle, remember to buy the turnbuckle assembly instead of the turnbuckle body!
Turnbuckles are highly customizable, which makes them great to have around the shop. There are three main options for the ends of your turnbuckles, depending on the project. If the turnbuckle is being used on cables, it might have an eyebolt. You can also get your turnbuckles with jaw fittings, which use a pin to attach around an object. These are particularly useful when you have a stationary post to rig.
