This unit consistes of a turnbuckle body with a left-hand toggle jaw at the lower end. Also known as a partial turnbuckle or turnbuckle less stud, use this turnbuckle on new rigging when terminating wires with mechanical stud terminals, such as Sta-loks, or if re-rigging and your wires terminate in a swaged stud, which you plan to re-use.
Traditionally, the left-hand threaded terminal of a turnbuckle is used as the lower end and is attached to the chainplate. As a result, stud terminals on rigging wires tend to be right-handed. Beware if you have a boat built in Taiwan, however, as these yards sometimes use the right hand end of the turnbuckle as the lower one, with left-handed studs on the wire.
• Bodies come standard in highly polished chrome over forged bronze, and a 316 stainless steel stud which eliminates stainless on stainless galling
• Especially useful when used with field maintainable mechanical wire studs for open ocean cruising
