Rather expensive, does what a turn buckle fork should. Does not have slit for using turn buckle locking wire...

It is the exactly what I needed, but only 1/4 of my order. I received 1 and was told the others are on backorder. I was told that the person I spoke with would check to see when the others are expected and would let me know, but she never contacted me with any information. As I near the final segment of my build before I cover the plane, I need those parts to complete the flying wire setup for my wings. Not happy with the customer service and apparent poor inventory of the part.

Catalog states this part number is used with locking clips. That is not the case as the parts I received did not have the clip slots. I am having to use safety wire to secure this part.

Q: What does the number to the right of the dash stand for when ordering turnbuckle forks?

The number after the dash represents the fork dimensions. We have added a reference chart which should assist with ordering.

Q: Can you cross reference the AN161-32LL to the MS21252 number?

Yes, equivalent is MS21252-5LL.

Q: What are the lengths of the -16S and -16L forks? (I have a short barrel, but need to replace a fork that looks longer than the diagram)

AN161-16LS is 1-1/8 inch long.
AN161-16LL is 2-1/2 inch long.
