What is a Tension lock Trailer?
A Tension lock allows you to clamp a flap or door closed. You sometimes see this on toolboxes or suitcases. They are often used to secure the tailgate. A great advantage of a stainless steel Tension lock is the robust and reliable connection. You can use stainless steel turnbuckles to temporarily connect wooden panels. It gives you a dismountable connection that consists of two parts. These two connections are also called a tension fastener and a counter piece. They are ideal because you can loosen the fastener with one simple action.
Tension lock stainless steel and galvanised
You can often buy a Tension lock in stainless steel and in an electroplated state. A stainless steel Tension lock means that it is made of "Stainless Steel". This designation is given because the material is more rust-resistant than 'ordinary' steel. You can only call such material stainless steel if it has a certain composition. But what exactly is the difference between a stainless steel tension lock and a galvanised Tension lock? A galvanised (galvanised) buckle has a thin layer of zinc, which protects the material better against certain weather conditions. In addition, a galvanised model is a lot stronger than one made of stainless steel. But a galvanised turnbuckle is more susceptible to rust.
Steel Tension locks and aluminium Tension locks
Tension locks for steel side boards belong to the most commonly used trailers such as Anssems, TEMARED, Eduard, Humbaur, Hulco, Saris, Hapert, and many more. Steel shackles are often easy to use and have a strong construction. Tension locks made of aluminium do not differ much from the steel variant. They work in exactly the same way. The turnbuckle slides onto the lock and blocks any possibility of opening the side.
