Torklift International FastGun turnbuckles have a locking turnbuckle feature that allows you to protect your investment and enjoy a worry-free experience when on the road.

Do you need locking turnbuckles? Take a moment to consider if the following is important to you:

1) Deter and prevent turnbuckle theft
With locking turnbuckles, it greatly increases the effort put forth on behalf of a thief, decreasing the likelihood of theft from taking place.

When recalling stories about stolen FastGuns, Torklift General Manager Jay Taylor recalled an instance in which a thief tried to resell the stolen turnbuckles in the exact campsite in which he stole them.

 “I couldn’t believe that someone would walk up, nonchalantly take the turnbuckle off the camper and try to resell it to other campers at the same campsite,” said Taylor. “Luckily the original owner approached the person and was able to get the stolen FastGuns back. Luck was surely on his side.”

As avid travelers, many of us who camp often like to explore. It’s these adventures while out on the road that make experiencing the outdoors so enjoyable. With locking turnbuckles, leave your equipment at the campsite and go enjoy a scenic hike, fish along the shoreline of a mountain lake or take a bike ride with your family. You won’t need to give any thought to leaving your gear. Traveling should be leisurely and worry-free, right?

FastGuns are the best turnbuckles your money can buy. As the most convenient and fastest installing turnbuckle available, protect your investment with FastGun Locks. High quality turnbuckles from Torklift International will last a lifetime and are covered by Torklift’s legendary lifetime warranty.

4) Secure turnbuckles while on the road
The FastGun Locks act as a locking snapper pin that latches into place once the FastGun lever-action handle is secured down.  Other models of truck camper turnbuckles have a small pin that can be easily pulled for simple removal. If they fall out or are lost for any reason, the turnbuckle is not completely secured.
