For more than 130 years, the Crosby Group has been offering its clients a wide range of rigging and lifting equipment as well as other material handling products.

At Kennedy Wire Rope and Sling Company (KWRS), we carry many Crosby products including the tough, durable Crosby turnbuckle.

Turnbuckles: The Basics

A turnbuckle is a component for rigging equipment. Operators can use this device to adjust the ropes, wire and/or cable of the rigging to the right the tension. It is a very basic type of mechanical device. The most common components are:

  • A minimum of two threaded eye bolts
  • A small metal frame

A Crosby turnbuckle is one example of this product at its most capable. It comes in many configurations to meet the requirements of its applications including offshore oil rigs and in mining, marine, and towing industries. They are engineered to meet and even exceed ASME specifications.


Crosby turnbuckles afford operators a variety of options. At KWRS, we recognize them for their:

  • Excellent Fatigue Resistance: Resulting from heat treating of the entire unit
  • Superior Corrosion Resistance: Galvanization enables use in any environment, including harsh and marine
  • Durability
  • Versatility: The turnbuckles come in various sizes, and the ends can be identical or dissimilar to meet different needs

Such qualities make them ideal for specific application in harsh environments.
