Clip-Locking Turnbuckles utilize 2 locking clips instead of lock-wire for safety. The turnbuckle barrel and terminals are slotted lengthwise to accommodate the locking clips. After the proper cable tension is reached the barrel slots are aligned with the terminal slots and the clips are inserted. The curved ends of the locking clips expand and latch in the vertical slot in the center of the barrel. They are available for different cable diameters and thread sizes in inches covering desired minimum breaking strength requirements.Different turnbuckle components are used in turnbuckle assemblies. They are sold separately to meet application requirements. Please refer to the attached documentation.

Stainless Steel Aircraft...

AVIATIONEU NEW ERA Aircraft...

Aircraft cables are stranded wires used in a wide variety of applications on or around the aircraft including flight control surfaces and tie-downs or other purposes. The term "wire rope" is also used when the diameter is larger than 3/8 inch (9.52 mm), with smaller gauges designated as cables or cords. They are specified by the number of strands times the number of wires in each strand. For example, “7x19” means the cable has seven (7) strands, with 19 wires in each strand. 7x19 is the most flexible aircraft cable construction, approximately twice as flexible as 7x7 construction.

McFARLANE® AVIATION FAA PMA...

McFARLANE® AVIATION  is one of a few DOD QML-6117 certified manufacturers of aircraft cable assemblies with over 4,500 cable assemblies and chains in stock. The flight control cables meet the highest standards possible and exceed the military specifications governing the respective cables. 

McFARLANE® AVIATION cables are FAA-PMA approved and offered in corrosion resistant stainless or high strength galvanized steel for most 100 and 200 series Cessna aircraft, PA28, PA32, and PA34 series Piper aircraft and G-164 series Ag-Cat aircraft. The company also stocks cables for single engine piston and many turbine and twin engine Beechcraft, and stabilator adjust cables for Piper J3, PA11, PA12, PA14, PA16, PA18, PA18A, PA20 and PA22 aircraft.

Galvanized carbon steel and stainless cables are soaked in a Mil-SPEC rust preventative and lubricating compound. The advantages of galvanized steel cables are their wear resistance and cost. Galvanized cables resist abrasion wear four or five times longer than those of stainless steel. Their use is recommended except in coastal geographical areas, agricultural aircraft, float planes, and other applications where the cable is exposed directly to water. In these cases stainless steel cables should be preferred. 

Stainless steel cables are high in nickel and much softer than those of carbon steel. They will show signs of wire wear at pulleys and fairleads much quicker than the galvanized carbon steel wires. In addition, stainless steel cables cost about 30% more than galvanized steel cables. 

McFARLANE® AVIATION cables are sold separately or in kits for convenience and economy. Flight control cable and trim chain kits are available for most single engine aircraft from the Cessna model 120 through model 210 and cable kits for most Beechcraft and Piper single engine airplanes.
