STANDARD TURNBUCKLES
 
 
Turnbuckles are available with various sizes and terminations. All have a locking nut on the RH thread.

 

 

 

 

Part number system for turnbuckles having 2-56 threads:
The first three numbers determine body length.
The next two numbers determine body diameter.
The next letter is the termination on the left hand threaded end.
The next letter is the termination on the right hand threaded end.
Many of the configurations that use 1/4 inch diameter bodies, can have #4-40 threading for heavy duty.
EXAMPLE: P/N 15025CE has a body length of 1.50 inch and a body diameter of 0.25 inch, and has a clevis on the LH end and an eye on the RH end.
