What the hell's a clevis?
Sounds like a southern boy's middle name to me.

You probably wouldn't have to replace a threaded rod and clevis ends as often as a coat rod.

I don't really care if he uses string or a coat rod - it is a good idea.
Poking fun B, I would do as you suggested also.

Clevis is an attaching device that has 2 legs with a hole for a pin and the end opposite the legs is threaded. Not a southern thing, even the Yankees use them.

Can't show you a pic, maybe someone else can, but a clevis is a U shaped fitting that has a hole drilled thru the open end and is threaded on the other end end.

Yeah "even the Yankees use them." We used them on the farm to attach the "O" shaped attachment of a farm implentiment ( plow, disk etc) to the drawbar of a tractor.

Radio Control vehicles use threaded rod and clevis to make adjustable connections. Also called "pushrods."

Lou - thanks, but I must take exception to you saying clevis are "Also called "pushrods."

Pushrods are the tubes that the clevis is attached to. The clevis is a component of a pushrod. They are, as you correctly say, adjustable.

And naturally I have to take exception, pushrods are hollow tubes that sit on lifters and rest in sockets on rocker arms in engines to operate the valves.
