The Polyfab Pro™ Turnbuckle is a versatile piece of hardware that can be used to tension wire, like in lifelines or wire hung canopies, or between two end pieces to tension a fabric structure like a shade sail. This turnbuckle features an open body and two closed eye end attachment points. This piece is made from marine grade 316 stainless steel by Polyfab USA, a world-leading producer of high-quality hardware for shade sail applications. Sailrite recommends using Permatex® Anti-Seize Lubricant on the threads to minimize thread galling.
Please note: When installing this shade sail hardware as a part of your application, it is your responsibility to make sure the finished structure is built in accordance with local building codes and that, given those codes, the proper hardware is being used.
