    Clevis Pins
    3D CAD models available

    The most commonly used clevis pins—just slide a cotter pin into the hole to secure parts. These pins have a flat, low-profile head to fit in tight spaces. They're less likely to get in the way than pins with a loop grip or T-handle but aren’t as easy to grab if you want to remove them frequently. Add your own cotter pin, or choose a clevis pin that includes a reusable hairpin cotter.

    Carbon Steel—Stronger than stainless steel, these pins won't deform from stress and vibration. They perform best in dry environments since moisture will cause them to rust.
    Zinc-Plated Carbon Steel—These pins withstand occasional exposure to moisture. However, since friction from moving parts can wear away the finish, they're not ideal for wet environments. While not nearly as corrosion resistant as stainless steel, they are stronger and won’t deform under stress.

    18-8 Stainless Steel—The choice for wet and outdoor environments, these pins resist rusting. They're strong enough to fasten most components but won't withstand stress and vibration as well as steel.
    17-4 PH Stainless Steel—The strongest stainless steel pins we offer, these are the least likely to deform due to stress and vibration. Similar to 18-8 stainless steel, they're suitable for most wet and outdoor environments. However, they won't hold up to the harsh conditions and chemicals that 316 stainless steel can.

    Tethered Loop-Grip Clevis Pins
    3D CAD models available

    A lanyard or chain prevents your pin from getting lost when removed. With a large loop handle that's easy to grip and pull, these clevis pins are often used for towing and other applications where you regularly secure and release components.

    Zinc-Plated Carbon Steel—These pins withstand occasional exposure to moisture. However, since friction from moving parts can wear away the finish, they're not ideal for wet environments. While not nearly as corrosion resistant as stainless steel, they are stronger and won’t deform under stress.
    Zinc Yellow-Chromate-Plated Carbon Steel—With a more durable finish than clear zinc plating, these pins hold up in wet and outdoor environments although not as well as stainless steel. Because the plating resists wear and the steel holds up under stress, they're good for pivoting parts, like rod end linkages.
    Painted Carbon Steel—Stronger than stainless steel, these pins won't deform from stress and vibration. The dark enamel creates a finished look but offers minimal corrosion resistance. They're best for dry environments.
    Cotter Pin Included—The hairpin cotter is quicker to install and remove than a linch pin but not as secure.
    Linch Pin Included—Less likely to get knocked or shaken out of place than a hairpin, the linch pin has a ring that snaps down and locks.

    T-Handle Clevis Pins
    3D CAD models available

    With the widest grip, these pins give you the most leverage. They’re also the easiest to grab with gloved or slippery hands but take up the most space when installed. To secure, slide a cotter pin (not included) into the hole.

    Loop-Grip Clevis Pins with Toggle
    3D CAD models available

    For components you need to lock in place but also disconnect frequently, these pins have a toggle end and large loop handle. No need for a separate cotter pin, the toggle swivels so you can insert into a hole and then swivels back to secure. Fold down the handle to save space when installed.

    Clevis Pins with Locking Retainer
    3D CAD models available

    Secure and release these heavy duty pins with one hand. Swing the welded solid steel retainer closed, and it locks onto the pin until you press the lever to open. Unlike other clevis pins, you don’t have to reach around to insert a cotter pin or worry about it falling out. These are often used for towing since they make it easy to hitch and unhitch your equipment.
