Already popular in the USA, the new quick locking SLIC Pin™ from Pivot Point will be introduced to the European market as part of this year’s Route to Fastener Innovation Competition.
Patented in the USA and Europe, the pin functions as a pin and cotter all in one. SLIC is an acronym for Self-Locking Implanted Cotter, and as the name implies, the pin is secure and self-locking through the use of an implanted plunger (locking detent) that effectively functions as a self-contained cotter pin.
