It is important to incorporate a tensioner into you wire rope run to keep your line taught and offer adjustment once your job has been complete. A tensioner can be an integral part of your steel wire rope line. Order yours online today.
A tensioner works as it has a right handed thread and the opposite end a left handed thread. Tension can be adjusted by rotating the central body, this causes both ends to be screwed in or out simultaneously.
As a rule we always recommend to double the size of your turnbuckle from your wire diameter... eg. 3mm diameter steel wire rope we would recommend to use a 6mm diameter turnbuckle
