Clevis Pins are primarily used to attach Turnbuckles and
Rigging to Deck and to Mast, but are also used in a wide variety of other
Rigging applications including Gooseneck, Spreader and Sail attachment, and
as Sheave Axles.
Clevis Pin diameter is equal to the size of the hole it is used in.
Clevis Pins are held in place with Cotter Pins (Split Pins).
Clevis Pins are measured by Diameter and Grip Length, a given Diameter is available in a variety
of Grip lengths. While a longer than ideal length may be used in some applications, proper
keeps dangerous protrusions and weight to a minimum. Rig-Rite stocks a large variety of
Pins - most are listed below.
