A turnbuckle is a hardware device used for tensioning wire rope to which one end of the turnbuckle is attached. The other end of the turnbuckle is usually attached to a fixed surface.
The Bridco turnbuckles below are made with AISI 316 Stainless Steel and are designed for wire rope rigging and for balustrading in particular.
We also supply an economy range of turnbuckles please contact us for pricing.
In Australia a turnbuckle is also called a rigging screw and can also be called a bottlescrew when it has a closed body around the screws.
A turnbuckle usually refers to an open body rigging device where you can see into the frame and view the two opposing screws.
Turnbuckles provide tension by rotating the turnbuckle body that surrounds the two opposite-threaded screws or eye bolts so that the two ends, one of which is usually attached to wire rope, can be brought closer together to tension or moved further apart to slacken.
Only the turnbuckle body (or frame or housing) is rotated while the screws and wire rope stay fixed and do not twist or rotate.
