Title: RE: Rod bracing

Rod bracing is a pretty low-tech system (I'm not knocking it when I say that). It usually consists of the rods, clevises or similar devices at the ends and a turnbuckle, sleeve nut or similar device somewhere along the length of the rod. This system is "tightened" up using the adjustability in the fittings, particularly the turnbuckle. I put tightened in quotes because I mean as tight as you can hope to get rod bracing.

Can anyone point me to a document telling me how rod
bracing should (or shouldn't) be installed?  Is
snugging both rods it?  I'm sure there must be a
proper procedure for this but I really don't know
where to look.
Thanks
