This also applies to turnbuckles, tensioning screws or deadeyes, as well as to connective elements such as shackles and bolts, and universal swivels such as toggles. Turnbuckles consist of a sleeve with two screwed-in counter-rotating threaded pins. The material used is stainless steel, galvanized steel or bronze.
