ME Hot Dip Galvanized Drop Forged Turnbuckle Hook Eye 1/4x4
Made of galvanized steel, this drop forged 1/4x4 hook and eye turnbuckle is recommended for straight or inline pulls, commonly used for adjusting the tension or length of wire ropes, aircraft cables, tie rods, and other tensioning systems. It normally have two threaded hooks, jaws,eyelets, or combination of any two of them, one screwed into each end of a metal frame, one with a left-hand thread and the other with a right-hand thread. The tension can be adjusted by rotating the frame, which causes both ends to be screwed in or out simultaneously, without twisting the end fittings(hooks, clevis and eyes) or attached rope or cables.
- End fittings are Quenched and Tempered, bodies heat treated by normalizing.
- Hooks and eyes are forged with a greater cross sectional area that results in a stronger hook or eye with better fatigue properties.
- Turnbuckles recommended for straight or in-line pulls only
- Modified UNJ thread on end fittings for improved fatigue properties.
