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 (the maximum length between the Head and a
Cotter Pin), a given Diameter is available in a variety of Grip lengths. While a longer than ideal length
may be used in some applications, proper sizing keeps dangerous protrusions and weight to a minimum.
Rig-Rite stocks a large variety of Stainless Steel Clevis Pins - most are listed below,
as are some Titanium Pins.
If you require a Clevis Pin not listed here, please contact us specifying dimensions
