The nature of failure in a Turn buckle is investigated. It was found that the fracture had occured at the rivet hole close to the fork end. Electron microscope study of the fracture surface showed that the fork end of the turn buckle had failed by a fatigue initiated fracture and that the fatigue could have originated due to excessive clearance in this region.
