Video: Demonstration of the mechanics of stainless steel turnbuckles.


Turnbuckles are designed to make adding or releasing tension to a rigging assembly an easy process, without adding undue stress.

Twisting the barrel in one direction expands the fitting, twisting in the other direction contracts the fitting - to provide the required tension.

Remember: It is important to note that the working load limit should always be taken into consideration when sizing and matching turnbuckles to other rigging components.
