Trust West Marine for quality rigging hardware.

Sailboat turnbuckles and stay adjusters are adjustable terminals located at the base of a sailboat’s forestay, backstay or shrouds. They enable you to adjust the length and change the tension of the stays or shrouds. Turnbuckles can have an open- or a closed-body design. A typical boat turnbuckle consists of a threaded swage fitting, a long or a short turnbuckle body and a threaded toggle fitting. Turnbuckle bodies are often made of chrome plated bronze, which helps to prevent galling of the stainless steel terminals. Items associated with turnbuckles include clevis pins, cotter pins and 1 x 19 stainless steel wire. West Marine offers quality corrosion resistant turnbuckles by Alexander Roberts, C.Sherman Johnson, Hayn and Ronstan.
