Knothead,
Yes, this is the wire that connects to the eye-bolt with a thimble. The turnback is the length of the bitter end of the wire measured from the end of the thimble to the end of the wire. The clips are the u-bolt/saddle clamps that connect the bitter end to the standing part. Rigging.net/clips.html has a pretty good description ( I can't include the direct link yet- not enough posts).
