Streamline design that will not catch on sails, lines or gear.
Tubular turnbuckle bodies are ideal for streamlining the appearance of lifelines or preventing sails and lines from catching on the standing rigging of smaller boats. C Sherman Johnson uses 316 stainless steel in the construction of their tubular turnbuckle bodies for its blend of strength and corrosion resistance. This style of turnbuckle body replaces cotter pins that can snag lines and sails with locking nuts.
