The Push-Lock® Turnbuckle Threaded Bolt is an exposed, swageless, tensioning, face-of-the-post-mounted fitting that is suitable for level runs only, and is available for 1/8” and 3/16” diameter 1×19 stainless steel cable.
The Push-Lock® Turnbuckle Threaded Bolt can be used with any fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting consists of four separate pieces: the threaded bolt, the body, the lock nut, and the Push-Lock® Stud. The short thread of the threaded bolt is secured into a pre-drilled and tapped hole in the face of the end post. The lock nut is installed all the way onto the exposed machine thread of the threaded bolt first, followed by the body. The Push-Lock® Stud threads into the body, and the cable attaches to the stud fitting via our Push-Lock® locking wedge system which requires no special tools. Tension is created by using the body as a turnbuckle. Once sufficient tension is achieved, the lock nut is secured against the body to prevent the fitting from loosening.
The most likely application for this fitting would be when substantial take-up is required AND there is a preference for a swageless fitting, AND there is less than 2-1/2” of space available in back of the end post.
