Does anyone have a link to a basic primer on how to adjust and lock in open-body turnbuckles? I feel a little silly asking, but it doesn't seem so simple when you are actually doing it. Is there a way to adjust tension while the clevis pin is locked into the deck
toggle, or do you have to remove the shroud
from the deck
, adjust both bolts in the turnbuckle, and then pull down hard to get it back into the body of the toggle and pinned?
It seems like if you turn the turnbuckle while it's all connected, you are just moving one bolt in and the other out, for a net zero gain.
What are the pins that go through the bolts for?
