J.W. Winco, Inc. announced it now offers GN 113.8 Heavy Duty Ball Lock Pins with Plastic T-Handle, in metric sizes.
These RoHS compliant ball lock pins are used for rapid connecting and securing of components or work pieces. Since the pin is fabricated of heavy duty, hardened and highly abrasion-resistant stainless steel, they have an extreme load capacity. A typical application is locating pins that have to be regularly moved in and out of position. By depressing the spring-loaded push button, the two balls are freed, and by releasing the push button the balls are locked.
The T-handle is black plastic (Polyamide PA), and the pin, balls and spring are all stainless steel. To avoid loss or misplacement of these ball lock pins, J.W. Winco also offer GN 111 split rings with various lengths of chain, and GN 111.2 retaining cables.
