Slotted Spring Pins consist of a single coil of spring steel (or stainless steel) with an open slot sufficiently wide to enable the pin to reduce in diameter as it is driven into a hole of appropriate size. As standard, our spring tension pins are normally supplied in the heavy duty form, but a light duty version is also available.

As an alternative to ISO 8752, we can offer in some sizes JIS B 2808 (Japan Industry Standard). This has an expanded diameter relatively smaller in relation to the nominal diameter (hole size) which makes assembly easier
as a countersink in the hole is not needed and the slot is narrower so does not entangle in bulk processing, such as plating or hopper-fed assembly machines.

It is possible to increase the shear strength of slotted pins by inserting a small diameter inside a large one. This should always be done by inserting the larger pin first, then inserting the smaller one, taking care that the slot is
between 90° and 180° away from the slot in the larger pin.
