Default What do you call this thing

What is the exact official name of a thing similar to what is in the picture attached but with a female threaded tube instead of the bolt? It is something like 1/2 turnbuckle. Most of the ones I have seen are cast rather than this fabricated version in the picture.

I need to buy one. I have tried every possible combination of search terms I can think of on the web to no avail.

Who might be a good supplier for such a thing?

Thanks

Larry

Yep, maybe more specifically "clevis rod end".

McMaster has them.

Welcome to the site.
I don't know what it is called, most members will just make one.

I hear there is a way to have Google search pictures maybe someone will elaborate on how to do a picture search..

That's a reverse image search. Google's reverse image search is a breeze on a desktop computer. Go to images.google.com, click the camera icon (), and either paste in the URL for an image you've seen online, upload an image from your hard drive, or drag an image from another window.
