Fabrics expand over time. It is recommended to use a turnbuckle to keep the fabric taut. Screw the forked ends of the turnbuckle in or out to adjust the lengths of the turnbuckle. This way, the tension of the sail can be maintained. Don‘t forget to reduce the dimensions of your sail accordingly during your planning process and mind the correct pulling direction.

Eye nuts can be attached to the pole in two different ways:

  • Method 1: The eye nut is held by a screw which is put through the pole frombehind. The screw is then secured with the eye nut and washer or screw glue. Select the screw in accordance to the length of your pole.
  • Method 2: Only used at the top of the pole. The screw is installed from the inside of the pole and secured with the eye nut. In this installation, the protruding end of the screw is not visible. The cap of the pole has to be removed to install the nut .

Stainless steel cable

Ø 4 mm | 6 mm

Ends with threads or stainless steel thimbles

Sometimes it is necessary to bridge long distances to a suitable fixation point. In these cases a stainless steel cable or a chain can be useful. But be aware that with increasing length of the cable, the sail tends to swing in the wind. Even with increased tension, this cannot be prevented. Consult your specialty retailer or sun protection specialist for advice.

Cable pulley

Stainless steel block with 1 wheel / 2 wheels

With a cable pulley it is easy to build a hoisting mechanism (see sketch) allowing you to quickly fix each sail even to tall poles. The upper pulley is attached to the eye bolt (snap hooks are not necessary). Depending on how easy the hoisting should be, a pulley can be built with several blocks. The lower end of the rope can be fastened to a cleat. Polyesterropes (Ø 6mm) are available in desired lengths.
