Product Description

Lag Swage Rigging Screw 5mm is a turnbuckle Connecting wire to a timber structure. It is also known as a Lag Swage Bottle Screw. They are ideal fasteners for timber structure projects requiring tensioners or turnbuckles for stainless steel wire rope.  A Rigging Screw is a closed body turnbuckle.  These fasten with a swaged bolt connecting the wire and a threaded lag screw connecting the timber post. They easily adjust on a timber post or wall.   Tensioning occurs without twisting the attached stainless steel wire rope or fittings. Rigging screws  conceal the threads within the pipe for an appealing streamlined look.

Usage: The Lag Swage Rigging Screw 5mm will work with a limited range of fittings. Our Rigging screws consists of a closed body with a threaded Lag Screw, and a threaded Terminal Swage bolt. Firstly, fitment of the threaded lag screw requires a pilot hole. Secondly, fitment of the wire to the swage bolt requires hydraulic swaging.  A hydraulic swaging tool crimps the stud to the appropriate diameter of wire rope.  Finally, the slim body of the Jaw Swage Rigging Screw can easily provide tension to your wire rope, without bending or stretching the wire. Tighten the body of the rigging screw with a c-spanner by rotating the body clockwise until tensioned to your needs.

Usage Tips

  • Lag Swage Rigging Screws are ideal fasteners for timber frame projects requiring tensioners or turnbuckles for stainless steel wire rope.
  • The threaded Lag Screw, allow these fasteners easily adjust on a secured post or frame, but a pilot hole is necessary.
  • The Rigging Screw may also be used in an angled installation such as stairs or a ramp.
  • Turnbuckles use both right-hand and left-hand threads. Firstly, these allow the body of the rigging screw to easily provide tension to your wire rope, without bending or stretching the wire.
  •  Tighten the body of the rigging screw with a c-spanner by rotating the body clockwise until tensioned to your needs.
  • The threaded Lag Screw is fastened to a timber post or upright that form the frame or area that will contain the wire.
  • The rigging screw requires a hydraulic swager to crimp the fitting to the appropriate diameter of wire rope

Installation Considerations

  • Matching alloys is important and avoiding cross contamination is very important.
  • It is recommended that similar alloy fasteners are used so that a dis similar (corrosive) alloy reaction is avoided. Generally G304 Stainless Steel screws are used in timber (counter sunk screws in soft woods and pan head screws in hard woods). Generally, G304 Stainless Steel Rivets are used to attach fittings to metal surfaces (aluminium, mild steel, and stainless steel).
  • It may be necessary to (electrically) isolate and insulate fittings from the substrate material - again to avoid a galvanic (dissimilar alloys) reaction. Nylon washers can be very effective in this regard.
  • Additionally, all fittings and tools mentioned: c-spanner and hydraulic swagers are available through our store as well. These Rigging Screws are primarily sized according to the diameter of wire with which they work. Therefore, they are used in concert with other fittings. Consequently with a similar swaging style - these additional fittings work with the same diameter of wire rope.
