HG-227 forged steel turnbuckles feature a Quenched and Tempered clevis pin jaw fitting on one end, with a tapered eye fitting on the other. They satisfy Federal Specifications FF-T-791b, Type 1, Form 1 - CLASS 8, and ASTM F-1145. They are hot galvanized and offer a 5:1 safety factor.
HG-227B Variations Now Available
Crosby has created new part numbers and technically, a new catalog number (HG-227B), for Jaw & Eye turnbuckles that feature a bolt, nut and cotter key instead of just a plain pin and cotter key. This ensures better retention of the pin, which increases safety. These turnbuckles are often specified for tower rigging jobs where an extra measure of safety is required. Currently available in four sizes only (see bottom of page).
