When and Where to use Nixalite Hook & Eye Turnbuckles:
  • Use at least one turnbuckle on each run of cable.
  • Do not turn corners of a perimeter cable installation without installing at least one turnbuckle.
  • Each large eyebolt or screw eye will accept connections from up to 4 small turnbuckles, 3 medium turnbuckles or 2 large turnbuckles.
  • Use to tension corner support cables used to stabilize fence posts.
  • Most commonly used with Nixalite’s Tensioned Perimeter Cable Hardware. Can be used with deer and perimeter fencing hardware and any overhead cable grid systems.
Stainless Steel Hook & Eye Turnbuckle Installation Tips:
  • Always install the turnbuckles at the maximum safe open length. This allows for the most amount of tensioning in the cables.
  • When fastening cable to the turnbuckles, always make the loop connection to the eye end of the turnbuckle – never to the hook end of the turnbuckle.
  • Always follow the Cable and Cable Hardware maintenance schedules available from Nixalite of America Inc.
