Time: 2019-06-26

Turnbuckles are used to take up slack and apply tension to a rigging assemblyThey are designed to be loaded in straight pull, inline applications.

They come in a variety of types, sizes, and coatings to suit many suspending, tie down, and tensioning type applications.

But do you know the Different of the end fittings between each type ? Hope below information can give you some help

Hook End Fittings

Hook end fittings are used for temporary connections and are easily attached and detached from other rigging components.
We do not recommend hook fittings in situations where tension can unexpectedly release from the turnbuckle as this may cause the hook to dislodge.

Jaw End Fittings

Jaw end fittings are composed of a jaw, bolt, and nut. These are used to connect to other components that cannot be opened, such as an eyebolt or swaged sling eye.
Depending on size, some jaw turnbuckles only come with a pin and cotter.

Eye End Fittings

Eye end fittings are used with other components that can be opened and connect into the eye such as a shackle or quick link.

They contain no moving parts and are the most cost-effective end fitting of the three.

Toggle Jaw

Toggle Jaw is a specialty end fitting which is available on some of our stainless-steel turnbuckles.

It is especially useful when the turnbuckle must articulate in a direction that isn’t allowed by the other component used in the application.
