U.S. Patent No. 6,872,039 & 7,147,420. Foreign Patents Issued
The SLIC Pin is truly one slick pin! SLIC is an acronym for Self Locking Implanted Cotter Pin, and as the name implies, is a pin and cotter all in one! It is cost saving, fast and secure. It functions as a quick locking pin wherever you need a quick lock function. This revolutionary fastener is understandably highly popular and used successfully in a wide-range of applications.
SLIC Pins feature a strong, spring-loaded plunger that functions as an easy insertion ramp. The plunger retracts when inserted, then springs back up when through the joined material. The vertical face at the rear of the plunger prevents backing out and locks the pin into place! This patented design is ideal for limited-space applications where cotter pin or retaining clip access is limited.
SLIC Pins eliminate cotters, bolts and nuts and clips; and does not require tools for use- thereby greatly speeding assembly times! The SLIC Pin is well suited for automated assembly and is easier, safer and faster. Whether you choose to call it a SLIC Pin or a slick pin, we’re sure you’ll love it.
