These inexpensive, reusable fasteners are often used together, with the cotter pin used to secure the clevis pin in place after it is installed. This simple combination provides a sturdy and reliable connection for mated mechanical components and similar applications. Cotter pins and clevis pins are commonly used with agricultural equipment, hence the alternate term “corn picker pins”, popularized in the early twentieth century.

What Are Clevis Pins?

“Clevis pin” refers to a type of non-threaded, low cost metal fastener. Functionally similar to a bolt, clevis pins are inserted into drilled holes and used to secure two or more items together, most often to affix one piece of machinery to another. Most clevis pins have either a groove around or a hole through the end, to which cotter pins are matched.

What Are Cotter Pins?

“Traditional” or straight cotter pins are metal fasteners with two parallel tines that are bent after installation to secure the pin in place. Also known as cotter keys or split pins, they are inserted through holes in clevis pins. Hairpin cotter pins, also called R-pins or R-keys, feature a design that allows them to be used with either grooved or holed clevis pins.
