Turn Buckle Threads

i meant for machine screws and nylocks to be used instead if cotter pins.
The nylock and screw serves the same function as the cotter pins - to keep the turnbuckle from turning. it is also beneficial as there is nothing to catch and
you do not have to use tape. the tape can lead to crevice corrosion and is nasty looking. works great on small and large boats.
