Turnbuckle M8 heavy, SP 08280

Stainless steel turnbuckle

Product sheet


Heavy turnbuckle made of stainless steel A2 with hooks and eye, open version, with right and left-hand thread, M8, length approx. 190 -280 mm, max. tension 9 cm, jaw width of hook approx. 10 mm. >>> Price



As a cable tensioner in wire and cable trellises for cables with 4 mm diameter, above all, as an adjusting element for free-standing wire frames in accordance with system 0050. Please refer to the general information about cable clamps, etc.. for more support if needed.



Before installing the turnbuckle, eye and hook(s) are screwed as far away from the clamping body (the turnbuckle) that their threaded shafts still protrude about 1 cm into the sleeve. (Attention: right-hand AND left-hand thread!) The following installation of the entire tensioner into the cable should be carried out in such a way that cable and/or wire is already easily tightened thereby. For wire frames according to the  system 0050, the turnbuckle with the hook is hooked into the ground anchor EA 12800. Then the final tension can be achieved with a few turns of the clamping sleeve. To this an awl (mandrel), nail, or screwdriver is inserted through the middle of the sleeve, and the sleeve is then turned so that both threaded shafts pull inwards evenly. Both are then screwed into the sleeve with about half its length into the threaded sleeve; this gives a harmonious appearance, and there is still plenty of space available for any re-tensioning that may be required later.
