Rigging Screws and Turnbuckles also known as bottlescrews are an extremely important component in the standing rigging on a yacht because they provide the adjustment required to tension the rig correctly.

All parts of a rigging screw are generally manufactured from AISI 316 marine grade stainless steel but the turnbuckle body (barrel) may be manufactured from even stronger more resilient metals e.g. manganese bronze, high tensile bronze alloy with a chrome finish, naval grade, ultrasonically inspected aluminium bronze.

Rigging Screws are best set up 2/3 open to allow for good adjustment either way.

Bear this in mind when setting up the lengths of your rigging wires.

Rigging Screws facilitate adjustment of the tension in shrouds, stays, guard wires and lifelines.
