Thanks Bryan,
I realise that's the normal quick way.

I've included a picture to see if anyone knows how its done.

It might be (I heard) that the fishing community have a tool to do it?

But where can you buy one of these. I could use that in both model boats and my fishing tackle. I want one.

That is a neat little tool. I see in the video that he was using a soft wire and assume when using a bit of stainless wire for the hook end of the turnbuckle you will need to put the tool in a vice -my fingers are not that strong.

The tool has arrived from Wheelspin. Its a bit smaller than I expected but it looks like "it does what it says on the tin".. I'll try it out in a few days when I get a moment.
