What Are Turnbuckles Used For?

Turnbuckles may be referred to as Wire Tensioners, Cable Tensioners, or Cable Tighteners. These pieces of hardware are engineered to absorb slack and apply tension to a rigging system without twisting the cables or wires. When Turnbuckles is used in cable termination and tensioning, the Turnbuckle itself will twist rather than the cable or wire.

Turnbuckle Applications And Features:

  • Applying Tension To A Rigging Setup
  • Taking Up Slack In A Rigging Assembly
  • Preventing Wires, Cables, And Lines From Twisting

What Are The Different Styles Of Cable Tensioners?

Turnbuckles/Cable Tensioners are classified by how they attach to assemblies at each end. Turnbuckles have two ends and can be configured with different connectors on each end. For example, a Turnbuckle that has a Hook Connector on one end and an Eye Connector on the other end would be classified as a Hook/Eye Turnbuckle. A Jaw/Jaw Turnbuckle has a Jaw Connector on both ends of the tensioner.

US Rigging Offers 3 Styles Of Turnbuckles:

Eye/Eye Turnbuckles These are tensioners with eyes that connect to other components of a rigging system on both sides of the hardware. Eye connectors add extra security and won’t detach from a rigging system accidentally. Because of this added security, they can be difficult to use in coordination with thimbles.

  • Highly Secure Connections
  • Won’t Detach From Systems Unintentionally

Jaw/Jaw Turnbuckles With jaws on each end, these turnbuckles include removable pins on each jaw. Jaws work easily with thimbles and are more secure than hook connectors. Like eyes, jaws prevent turnbuckles from becoming detached unintentionally.

  • Secure Connections
  • Work Easily With Thimbles
  • Won’t Detach From Systems Unintentionally

Hook/Eye Turnbuckles These turnbuckles have a hook on one end of the hardware and an eye on the opposite end. Hooks are less secure than jaws and eyes but are easily removable. These turnbuckles are ideal for applications where temporary connections are being applied and you want to remove tension more easily.

  • Easily Removable
  • Ideal For Temporary Connections
