Container turnbuckles are used in combination with lashing bars to secure containers above deck on a container ship or barge.  The jaw end of the turnbuckle is secured to a d ring or lashing plate which is welded to the ships deck.  The other end of the turnbuckle is attached to either a short or long lashing bar which in turn is connected to a container corner casting.  Long lashing bars, about 4500 to 5000mm long are for use with the bottom fittings on the 3rd container tier.  Short lashing bars, about 2500 mm long are for insertion into the corner casting at the bottom of the 2nd tier of containers. 

Turnbuckles have a maximum and minimum opening length.  If you turn the bars of the turnbuckle they will tighten or loosen depending on the direction turned.  During container use, you want the turnbuckle to have all slack taken out of the system, but you dont want the fitting to be too tight.  Hand tight is plenty.
