    That “hook and bolt” bit of hardware is called a turnbuckle.

    The threads on one end are normal, while the threads on the other end are reversed, so it will pull both ends in at the same time.
    Tip: Start with both ends evenly spaced or you may run out of thread at one end at its extremes.
