(A) and (B) of figure 5-26. The clip-locking method is
used only on the most modern aircraft. An example of
an aircraft using this method is the EA-6B. These
aircraft use a turnbuckle that is designed for use with
the wire clip. The older type of aircraft still use the
turnbuckles that require the wire-wrapping method.
Detailed instructions for using both the clip-
locking and the wire-wrapping methods of safetying
turnbuckles can be found in
Mechanic (H&S) 3 & 2, NAVEDTRA 12338.
