90% of your turn buckles have both right hand & left hand thread. And finding a new locking nut for that left hand thread is nigh on to impossible.
Why you ask a turn buckle has both? Well when you are turning the barrel of said turn buckle both ends move in or out the same amount.
Inspect every turn buckle you have on your boat and you will see what I am talking about.
