Cotter pins can be an essential component in a range of mechanisms and scenarios, from ensuring that nuts remain tightly secured in place on shafts to keeping ramps in the correct position and allowing for ease of use when access is required. They act as an alternative to a staple, holding firmly in place using a pair of tines which need to be bent outwards to lock the pin in place.
Because of their design, a cotter pin that is removed after use needs to be replaced with a fresh pin. It is always a good idea therefore to have a few spare pins to hand, so that replacement can be carried out swiftly, as and when needed.
We stock a wide selection of split cotter pin products at Simply Bearings. So whether you need five, ten or a whole kit consisting of a range of sizes, we will be able to meet your needs and supply you with affordable items of the highest quality.
Our cotter pins are zinc plated and galvanised, making them particularly well suited to deployment outdoors, since they are capable of resisting corrosion and surviving in adverse conditions for extended periods.
These pins are generally sold in packs of five. Larger packs are available beyond this minimum amount to suit those who will have an ongoing requirement for this type of engineering part. Our range of pins includes various models with different lengths and diameters, meaning no task is too small or large to be taken on by the products that are on offer.
Investing in a cotter pin kit is sensible if you want to stock up on pins that cover the full range of lengths and diameters. This is not only convenient for the purposes of keeping a well stocked tool kit at all times, but is also one of the most cost-effective ways to procure a large quantity of pins.
