Turnbuckles are an essential component of most zip lines. Turnbuckles are primarily useful in adjusting zip line tension once your zip line is operational and the cable stretches from use. The Chetco Zipline Kits come with one turnbuckle and the Rogue Zipline Kits come with two turnbuckles.

  • Each turnbuckle includes a turnbuckle backup kit with a cable and 4 cable clamps.

Turnbuckles allow for adjusting tension on a zip line cable at any time. Turnbuckles can also be used for tensioning guy wires.

    Hi All,

    I just got your 5/8" x 12" turnbuckle in the mail and was surprised it came with a cable backup kit. Awesome! You need to let folks know this is included in your webpage verbage - or have Josh do a new video.

    It would be helpful to have a description of the backup kits that you provide with these turnbuckles. Might be nice to show those in the video and how they would be used too. And FYI- the rating stars are totally transparent in my Chrome browser until I mouse over them. I didn't even know they were there.
