Tensioning of wire with terminals
As well as serving as an attachment to a given construction, threaded terminals, once on to the wire, can serve as a tensioner. Where tension cannot be applied to the thread via a nut at the end, the wire can be tensioned by use of e.g. right handed and left handed thread terminals at each end of the wire, by turning the whole wire it will be tensioned.
