Eye Eye Turnbuckles
Eye Eye Turnbuckles are in the category of Open Turnbuckles because the body of the Turnbuckle is ‘open’. They are ideal fasteners for projects requiring tensioners or turnbuckles for stainless steel wire rope. With a welded eye at both ends, these fasteners are extremely secure once installed and easily adjust on a secured post or frame when attached to a saddle providing a rustic or industrial appearance for that timeless look.
With both right-hand and left-hand threads, the body of the turnbuckle can easily provide tension to your wire rope, without bending or stretching the wire. You can tighten the body of the turnbuckle without a c-spanner by rotating the body clockwise until tensioned to your needs with your fingers.
Certified G316 stainless steel, these Turnbuckles will work with a range of fittings. Generally, these Turnbuckles work with terminal loops formed with ferrules and thimbles. The ferrules are manually swaged fittings that require a manual hand swager to crimp the fitting to the appropriate diameter of wire rope.
All additional fittings and tools mentioned: saddles, lag screw eyes, c-spanner and manual hand swagers are available through our store as well. The Eye Eye Turnbuckles are primarily sized according to the diameter of wire with which they work and they are used in concert with other fittings – normally with a similar swaging style – that work with the same diameter of wire rope.
