## How are turnbuckles measured?

A turnbuckle body is designated by the diameter of the rod threading into it and the length of the take-up inside the turnbuckle rather than the overall length. For example, a 1” x 6” turnbuckle body has an overall length of 8⅞”, but has an opening or “window” measuring 6”. Common sizes available are 6”, 9”,12”, 18” and sometimes 24” take ups.

The emailer, Adrian asks the fair question: “is there a calculation for determining all of the other values on the diagram?” You dance around his question but don’t answer it. I’m just an ordinary guy that visits theI I go to the hardware store or vist the internet i see
D (or M or MI) , the rod diameter so how does the rod diameter so, how does that relate to A or C . By a little dividing from an aactual turnebuckle,A/C is (3/.25)= 12. Is “12” the missing magic number from your “hedgy” answers? Pls let me know how to read the turnbuckle literature.
Thanks. D Wilhoit

@Darrel- We are not aware of any specific calculations to determine the dimensions. The standard values are listed on our turnbuckle page, which were taken directly from the AISC Steel Construction Manual. The original data can be found in Table 15-6 in the 14th Edition of the manual.

@Patimat- We supply turnbuckles along with rods that we manufacture, but we do not typically just sell them by themselves. Additionally, we do not recognize the numbers that you reference, we would need more information in order to help.
