Houston, TX (PRWEB) July 26, 2013
These cotter pins consist of a double bodied pin formed from half-round wire, a loop at one end of which provides a head. The finished part has one end of the wire extending beyond the other end, with a chiseled point. Cotter pins are used to anchor various assemblies by insertion into a drilled hole of a shaft or pin and spreading the points to hold the assembly in position. When used with castle or slotted nuts, it becomes a safety locking device.
Currently available in plain finish, zinc plated and 18-8 stainless steel for applications where corrosion resistance is needed.
