The Push-Lock® Tensioner with Lag Clevis is an exposed, swageless, tensioning, face-of-the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for level or pitched runs, and is available for 1/8” and 3/16” diameter 1×19 stainless steel cable. It is a more compact design than our swaged Adjust-A-Body® fittings.
The Push-Lock® Tensioner with Lag Clevis can be used with any fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting consists of two separate pieces: the articulating lag and the Push-Lock® tensioning body. The lag is driven into a pre-drilled hole in the wood end post. The cable attaches to the body via our Push-Lock® locking wedge system which requires no special tools. The machine thread of the articulating lag threads into the body, connecting the two pieces. Tension is created by securing the post-side segment of the body onto the machine threads while preventing the cable-side segment of the body from turning.
While this fitting can be used on pitched or level runs, it is most appropriate for pitched runs because the threaded eye portion of the fitting pivots at the lag. The pre-drilled hole for the lag is drilled level, making installation easy.
