Surprise, AZ (PressExposure) June 27, 2011 -- C-Mack Supply Co., the one-stop-shop for all rigging and lifting hardware has expanded its information base and added new information about turnbuckles (http://cmacksupply.com/turnbuckles/).
There are a lot of hardware devices used for rigging and lifting. Turnbuckles are just one of them. These devices are used to reduce or increase the tension on cords, ropes and chains without having to twist the cords, ropes and chains in the process.
Turnbuckles are three-piece metal devices that can be oblong or rectangular in shape. Both ends are threaded inwards. The rope or chain is attached to the threaded insert on each end. Turning the buckle or center piece in a particular direction either tightens or loosens the cables or ropes.
These devices are used in construction, ships, planes, stages and a lot of other applications that require adjusting tension or the length of the rope or chain. It really is used for various lifting and rigging applications.
These are used in many industries and can be found in various sizes. The size does depend on the size of the cable or rope it is attached to. Suspension bridges make use of large and heavy turnbuckles. On the other hand, those used for garden fences are small and light. If the turnbuckle size that a person needs is not featured on C-Mack's website, they can still provide for these custom made devices, simply call or inquire through email for sizes and prices.
