Swageless Heavy Duty Turnbuckle & Terminal Set w/Lags – Type 316 Steel
For those wanting a set of swageless cable fittings that are easy to install, this heavy duty turnbuckle and terminal is right for you. The lag terminal end is installed first and it just anchors cable on one end. You then install the turnbuckle which is responsible for tensioning and holding the cable. Swageless heads means you won’t have to crimp the hardware and cable together. Two wrenches will tighten or loosen the cable so they are very forgiving if mistakes are made. It is recommended to drill pilot holes first before driving the lags in. They’re made of T316 stainless steel so you won’t experience rusting, even in humid areas. Customers have used them on both commercial and residential applications.
While you prepare for the install, make sure you have a real cable cutter tool on your checklist. Some have attempted using grinders and other cutting tools but that can result in uneven or flattened ends – that makes getting them into fittings properly difficult. These swageless fittings are designed to be used with 1/8″ stainless steel cable. Out of the different configuration options out there, we’d point you towards the 1×19 construction if you are installing a cable railing system.
