C.S. Johnson Hand Crimp Turnbuckle
C.S. Johnson's closed body jaw to hand crimp tubular lifeline turnbuckle is used at the bow or stern rail to tension the longest section of your lifelines. The attachment point is a "T" bolt style jaw with 1/4" pin size. Adjustments are easily made via the cross-hole in the center of the turnbuckle. Secure locking is achieved with two check nuts on either side of the turnbuckle body. Available for 1/8" and 3/16" lifelines.
Hand Crimp Life Line Fittings were designed for easy do-it-yourself installation by the boat owner or professional. A properly installed hand crimp fitting will hold 65-70% of the breaking strength of 7x7 cable. The proper crimping tool and instructions must be used to assure a safe installation. Please use either our bolt type or lever type crimping tool, both of which are available from Defender. All components are USA MADE from type 316 marine grade stainless steel.
