The Adjust-A-Jaw® is a swaged, tensioning, face-of-the-post-mounted fitting that can be used on level or pitched runs. This fitting is available for 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”, 5/16”, and 3/8” diameter 1×19 stainless steel cable.

The Adjust-A-Jaw® can be used with any fitting on the opposite end of the run. This fitting attaches to the wood end post by installing a Lag Eye into a pre-drilled hole in the end post and attaching the threaded jaw portion of the fitting to the lag eye with a button head screw (see information at bottom of page). The cable is retained within the body portion of the fitting by a ferrule swaged onto the end of the cable. The lock nut is installed all the way onto the threaded jaw first, followed by the body, which is secured onto the jaw, creating tension on the cable. Once sufficient tension is achieved, the lock nut is secured against the end of the body to prevent the fitting from loosening.

While this fitting can be used on pitched or level runs, it is most appropriate for pitched runs because the threaded jaw portion of the fitting pivots at the lag eye. The post hole for the lag eye is drilled level, making installation easy.
Use of this fitting requires an appropriately sized ferrule that is swaged onto the cable, which must be purchased separately .

For sleeved posts with an outside diameter of greater than 4-1/2”, use the extended length lag eye. The extended length lag is 3” long, designed to reach past sleeves and drywall to find the wood post or frame underneath. Extended lag eye and screw sold separately.
