Traditional open turnbuckle body that eliminates galled threads.
C.Sherman Johnson turnbuckle bodies are cast bronze to eliminate galled threads and remain adjustable throughout a wide range of loads. A chrome plated finish provides a matching look for conventional stainless steel rigging. The open body design allows the turnbuckle to be easily rinsed with freshwater and provides access for routine inspections. Threaded with right-hand (RH) and left-hand (LH) threads for normal use each turnbuckle body is sized according to stud and thread pitch.
