Ultra-Tec Push-Lock Turnbuckle Threaded Eye
The Push-Lock Turnbuckle Threaded Eye by Ultra-Tec is an exposed, swageless tensioning fitting that's surface-mounting and suitable for either pitched or level applications with wooden end posts. The fitting consists of four different parts: Threaded Eye, Body, Lock Nut, and Push-Lock Stud. It can be used with any type of fitting on the opposite end of the cable run.
The fitting attaches to the metal end post by installing a Threaded Tab (not included) into a pre-drilled hole in the end post and then attaching the threaded eye portion of the fitting to the Threaded Tab with a Mounting Screw (not included). The lock nut is installed all the way onto the exposed machine thread of the threaded eye first, then followed by the body. The Push-Lock Stud will then thread into the body, and then the cable will attach to the Push-Lock Stud by using the Push-Lock locking wedge system, requiring no special tools. Tension is then created by using the body as a turnbuckle. Once the desired tension is achieved, the lock nut can be secured against the body in order to prevent the fitting from loosening and creating slack on your run.
This fitting can be used on both pitched and level runs, however it is most appropriate for pitched applications because the threaded eye portion of the fitting creates a pivoting action where it connects to the lag eye via the mounting screw. The most common application for this fitting is in scenarios where substantial take-up is required on pitched applications, with a preference for a swageless fitting, and there is less than 2 1/2" of space available in the back of the end post.
