C.SHERMAN JOHNSON–Hand Crimp Turnbuckle for 3/16" Wire, 3" Range
Hand Crimp Turnbuckle for 3/16" Wire, 3" Range
Clean closed body lifeline turnbuckles with hand crimp terminal.
These streamline closed body turnbuckles are great for smaller boats in freshwater. The compact design uses hex nuts to lock the turnbuckle in place and eliminates the need for cotter pins that can catch on lines and rip sails. The 316 stainless steel body and toggle terminals provide a great blend of strength and corrosion resistance. The hand crimp threaded terminal is also constructed using 316 stainless steel and is sized to the wire and can be installed using proper hand crimping tools. Clevis pin is secured using a cotter ring. For a rigging solution that won’t catch on lines or rip sails, switch to tubular-body stainless steel turnbuckles.
