Hex Socket Tensioner
Hex Socket Tensioner fittings (also known as Female Hex Adjusters) are forged AISI 316 marine grade stainless steel and designed to attach to stainless steel wire rope and a range of stainless steel fixtures and fittings.
Female Hex Adjusters are use with the Swaged Male Terminal Ends to provide an tension adjustable point for 1 end of a wire run. Together, this set of connectors will work on either a metal or a wooden post of up to 100mm in diameter.
First drill a 8mm hole through the post. Swage the Wire to the Swaged Male Terminal End. Insert the Male end into the hole. Enlarge the hole on the backside of the post to 8mm, then screw on Female Hex Adjuster and tighten as appropriate.
