NOTE: Turnbuckles are intended for straight or in-line pulling only.

During tensioning, make sure no deformity of this product occurs. In case of deformity, the tension should be decreased immediately and deformed parts should be replaced. Extreme circumstances or shock loading, if applicable, must be considered when choosing the correct products for your application. Green Pin® turnbuckles are recommended for the rigging of wires, ropes, rods etc. The Working Load Limit (WLL) should be applied in a straight pull only and overloading is not permitted. Side loads should not be applied.

It is not permitted to adjust the length of the turnbuckle under full load. Tensioning below the WLL is permitted. It is recommended to first adjust the length of the turnbuckle and then load the turnbuckles to a certain tension. The tension should not exceed the WLL.
