Ronstan Standing Rigging Fittings
Type 10 Turnbuckles
Elegant Design, Exceptional Perfomrance
From their clean lines to the use of the highest grade materials and quality finish, Ronstan Type 10 turnbuckles are engineered to deliver performance while enhancing the appearance of any yacht, or tensile project.
Type 10 closed body turnbuckles have a sleek, modern profile with no sharp edges. They are easily adjusted by turning the unique adjustment nut, which is free to rotate within the sleeve on the turnbuckle body, and are secured with a quick turn on the locking nut. A sight hole is provided in the body to verify adequate thread engagement. With fine thread and single end adjustment, Type 10 turnbuckles are much easier to adjust than conventional turnbuckles, and the use of dissimilar but compatible metals for the threaded components avoids the risk of thread seizure. Toggles are designed with full lateral articulation for easy installation and connection compatability.
Fine, rolled threads
Ronstan rigging fittings have rolled threads for maximum strength and reliability - unlike cut threads, the stainless steel bar is formed up and down to create a thread with the grain remaining unbroken and flowing the full length of the thread. Threads are UNF (Unified National Fine), short pitch threads for fine adjustment and reduced adjustment effort.
Roll swage integrity
Swage fittings suit industry standard roll swaging presses and dimensions are derived from the original "Milspec" for maximum integrity. They are suitable for use with modern and traditional wire constructions, including 1x19, 7x19 and compact strand.
Open Body Turnbuckles
Classic Styling with ultimate peace of mind
Ronstan open body turnbuckles are made from polished chrome plated high grade brass bodies with grade 316 stainless steel end fittings. This combination of materials not only avoids the risk of excessive thread wear or seizure under load, but also provides the considerable advantage of easier adjustment.
