Abstract : This patent pertains to a tension indicator-turnbuckle. An object of this invention is to permit the effective use of a novel turnbuckle without the prior art necessity of having to adjust and readjust the turnbuckle numerous times in order to properly tension load the turnbuckle (i.e., to connect the turnbuckle quickly and easily to the tension load members with which it is to be used), thereby resulting in the saving of significant time. Another object of this invention is to teach a novel turnbuckle which, in addition to its other fundamentally advantageous features, is simple in structure, is easy to operate, and is 'fail-safe' in reliability. Still another object of this invention is to teach a novel method of manufacturing the inventive tension indicator-turnbuckle.
