GN 214.2 rapid release pins are used for quick
fixing, connecting and locking of various jig and fixture
systems. A typical application is locating pins which must
be removed and re-placed frequently.
The two securing pins can be retracted by pressing the button;
when it is released, the pins will once again return to the
The rectangular shape of the stainless steel securing pins creates
a linear contact area which increases axial shear strength.
This type with swiveling lifting ring is ideal for use in confined spaces.
Slide/push button temperature resistet up to 176° F (80° C)
Axial load values in the table at shear stress are theoretically obtained and indicative only without taking safety factors into account.
For version with stainless steel shaft, see GN 214.3.
