Cotter Pins

A Cotter pin (split pin) is a pin that is driven through holes and the two legs are bent outwards in order to lock the pin in place.

We predominantly keep Imperial Cotter pins in stock but may have the odd metric size kicking about somewhere.

The main difference between a Cotter and a Sellock pin is that a Cotter pin is able to be bent to prevent it from falling out while the Sellock pin is sprung to stay in the inserted holes.

A common application is to secure a Castellated nut, if you require a specific size not listed, give us a shout!
