Wire lock pins, also referred to as snap pins, have a similar design as hitch pins, except for the additional feature of a pivoting spring wire connected to the head of the pin. As the pin is inserted into a part, the spring wire extends across the part, wrapping around the pin and ensuring it is secure in place. Snap pins are used in various applications in the commercial and agricultural industries. At ITW Shakeproof Industrial we are your source for exceptional quality, durable wire lock pin devices.
Wire lock pins function as if there is a pin and cotter in one protected assembly. The wire loop is placed over the end of the pin, effectively locking it in place or removing it from the pin. As a single piece fastener, this lock pin prevents the loss of cotter pins and is compatible with most quick release requirements.
Wire Lock Pin Applications
As a popular device, quick connect and disconnect pins are utilized in various applications with shafts and equipment. The cold-headed shank of the pin is made from low carbon steel. The retainer wire is developed from tempered spring wire. We offer lock pins in sing and double wire versions. In addition the complete wire lock pin assembly is zinc plated.
