Rigging Pins are largely (in shorter lengths) a less costly alternative to
commonly used in covered applications such as Masthead
Primary modern usage is as
Clevis Pins, but in applications
where longer individualized lengths are impractical, and in those rare applications
where the Pin should be removable from either side.
Rigging Pins are measured by Diameter and Grip Length, a given
Diameter is available in a variety of Grip lengths.
Grip Length is the maximum length between 2
Cotter Pins. While a longer
than ideal length may be used in some
applications, proper sizing keeps dangerous protrusions and weight to a minimum.
Listed below are commonly stocked Rigging Pins, normally secured with
Cotter Pins (Split Pins).
Part numbers are as Clevis Pins (diameter in 1/16's, lengths in
1/32's), meaning that a
RP8-64 can be substituted for a CP8-64 (and vise versa).
