Turnbuckle Frames in Stainless Steel, Hot Dip Galvanized & Carbon Steel
Forged Turnbuckles, also known as stretching screws or bottle screws, are devices used to adjust the tension or length of ropes, cables, tie rods, and other tensioning systems. Turnbuckles in this selection consist of just the open frame or body. One end of a turnbuckle's core is left hand threaded and the other end is right hand threaded allowing precise adjustment of the tension and length to be permitted by simply rotating the turnbuckle frame itself, without twisting the turnbuckle fittings or the ropes, wires, or cables they are attached to.
Turnbuckle bodies are purely the frame or "core" of the turnbuckle allowing you to make your own custom turnbuckle assembly with whatever end fittings desired.
Turnbuckle frames from Albany County Fasteners are Drop Forged, Passivated and Electropolished for a durable corrosion resistant finish. Forged Turnbuckles are available in carbon steel, hot dipped galvanized steel, and 316 stainless steel.
Turnbuckles should only be applied in a straight, in-line manner only. Keep in mind that the larger the thread diameter of the end fitting, the more load capacity the turnbuckle will have. The longer the length of the turnbuckle body, the more slack it can take when tightening or loosening the turnbuckle.
