Product Description

The Threaded Fork M6 LHT G316 Stainless Steel has Left Hand Threads (M6x1.0).  This Fitting anchors chain or wire rope to a fixed surface or turnbuckle.  Generally, this terminal fitting attaches to a fixed surface by drilling and tapping a thread to receive the fitting. The surface may be a post or plate. Please note the ‘handedness’ of each fitting option (LHT=Left Hand Thread and RHT=Right Hand Thread). You may need a special drill tap (we have them as well).  Another option is to drill the surface and  directly ‘bolt-in” the fitting..  As well, they can be used with a Turnbuckle Body.

Usage: The Low Cost Wire Stainless Steel Threaded Fork M6 LHT fittings specifically designed for general purpose and shade sail applications and suit most types of metric threaded Eye Nuts and Hex Nuts.  Also, these fittings are NOT “lifting” rated. Threaded Forks are threaded into an anchor point.   Consequently, this terminal fitting anchors chain or wire rope to a fixed surface by drilling and tapping the thread into a post or plate. Alternatively, they can be simply put through a hole and bolted in place or they can be used with a Turnbuckle Body

Usage Tips

  • Threaded Forks are threaded cast AISI 316 marine grade stainless steel and designed to attach to a wide range of fixtures and fittings such as Screw Eyes, Saddles and Eye Bolts.
  • Threaded Forks are threaded into an anchor point and connected to a fitting swaged to the wire (hydraulically). They can also connect to a thimble and ferrule that can form an 'end'.
  • The fitting is normally fastened to a saddle or a turnbuckle body or some sort of eye connection.

Installation Considerations

  • Low Cost Wire Stainless Steel Threaded Forks are specifically designed for general purpose and shade sail applications and suit most types of metric threaded Eye Nuts and Hex Nuts. Note that these fittings are NOT rated for lifting purposes.
  • 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
