Captive Jig Pins
New Item!

Similar to a standard Jig Pin, except that the pin body is positively retained in a locking bushing. In fully retracted position, the bushing's spring clip snaps into the pin's groove. This holds the pin fully retracted by spring force and positively prevents removal. Spring pressure also holds the pin in intermediate extended positions, an advantage especially if the fixture is turned upside down. Like standard Jig Pins, Captive Jig pins have an integral shoulder to keep the handle raised. Available in pin diameters from 3/16 to 1/2". Made in USA.

Locking-Pin Bushings are designed to press fit in a standard reamed hole. Secure with the included Lockscrew to positively hold the bushing in place. Shorter or longer bushings are available in most sizes, for thinner or thicker plates (see Locking-Pin Bushings).
Captive Locating Screws
New Item!

Captive Locating Screws can be used for locating and clamping, or for clamping only, by selecting the appropriate screw length. The locating screw's precision-ground body is positively retained in a locking bushing. In fully retracted position, the bushing's spring clip snaps into the body's radial groove. This holds the screw fully retracted by spring force and positively prevents removal. Spring pressure also holds the screw in intermediate extended positions, an advantage especially if the fixture is turned upside down.  Available in thread sizes from 1/4-20 to 1/2-13. Made in USA.

Locking-Pin Bushings are designed to press fit in a standard reamed hole. Secure with the included Lockscrew to positively hold the bushing in place. Shorter or longer bushings are available in most sizes, for thinner or thicker plates (see Locking-Pin Bushings).
Captive Locating Screws with Hand Knob
New item!

These Captive Locating Screws have an integral hand knob for tightening by hand. Captive Locating Screws can be used for locating and clamping, or for clamping only, by selecting the appropriate screw length. The locating screw's precision-ground body is positively retained in a locking bushing. In fully retracted position, the bushing's spring clip snaps into the body's radial groove. This holds the screw fully retracted by spring force and positively prevents removal. Spring pressure also holds the screw in intermediate extended positions, an advantage especially if the fixture is turned upside down. Available in thread sizes from 1/4-20 to 1/2-13. Made in USA.

Captive Locating Screws with Swivel-Washer Hand Knob
New item!

These Captive Locating Screws have an integral hand knob for tightening by hand. This version has an integral rotating washer, which provides smooth clamping with consistent force. Captive Locating Screws can be used for locating and clamping, or for clamping only, by selecting the appropriate screw length. The locating screw's precision-ground body is positively retained in a locking bushing. In fully retracted position, the bushing's spring clip snaps into the body's radial groove. This holds the screw fully retracted by spring force and positively prevents removal. Spring pressure also holds the screw in intermediate extended positions, an advantage especially if the fixture is turned upside down. Available in thread sizes from 1/4-20 to 1/2-13. Patent pending. Made in USA.

Headed Slotted Locator Bushings (Press Fit)
New Item!

Slotted Locator Bushings can be used with many types of alignment pins and locating pins to align two holes without binding. Precision bushing with a tight tolerance in one direction and full relief in the perpendicular direction. This headed version provides more resistance to axial loads. The head can be left exposed, or recessed by counterboring the installation hole. Available for pin diameters from 3/16 to 1/2". Made in USA.
Ball Lock Pins
Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank. The standard single-acting type shown here is positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the locking balls to retract. This version has the widest range of handle styles and sizes. Choice of four handle styles -- T, L, Button (B), and Ring (R). Made in USA.

Available in standard pin diameters from 3/16 to 1" (5 to 20mm in metric), in alloy steel or stainless steel. Any grip length up to 6" (150mm in metric) is available as standard, at no extra charge. Available from stock in many standard grip lengths, or quickly made to order in custom lengths. 
Marine Ball Lock Pins
Marine Ball Lock Pins are similar to our standard single-acting Ball Lock Pins, except they are available only in stainless steel, and their handle is slightly shorter and made of stainless steel (instead of aluminum) for extra strength and corrosion resistance. Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank. They are positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the balls to retract. Choice of three handle styles: Button (B), Recessed Button (M), and Ring (R). Made in USA.

Available in standard shank diameters from 3/16 to 1" (5 to 20mm in metric). Any grip length up to 6" (150mm in metric) is available as standard, at no extra charge. Available from stock in many standard grip lengths, or quickly made to order in custom lengths.
Heavy-Duty Ball Lock Pins
Heavy-Duty Ball Lock Pins are similar to our standard single-acting Ball Lock Pins, except they are available only in stainless steel, and have a larger, heavier handle for rough service. Handles are made of solid stainless steel for maximum impact strength, and are specially shaped to prevent accidentally pressing the release button. Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank. They are positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the balls to retract. Choice of four handle styles: T, L, Button (B), and Ring (R). Made in USA.

Available in standard pin diameters from 3/16 to 1/2" (5 to 12mm in metric). Available from stock in many standard grip lengths. Other grip lengths are available as specials (extra charge and longer delivery time).
Adjustable Ball Lock Pins
Adjustable Ball Lock Pins have an adjustable grip length. They can be used for clamping, or simply to provide a variable grip length. The threaded handle turns to provide a +/- 1/4" clamping range or adjustment range. When used just for variable grip length (not for clamping), the handle can be secured with the supplied knurled locknut. Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank. They are positive locking until released by pushing the button, which moves the center spindle forward to allow the balls to retract. Adjustable Ball Lock Pins have four balls as standard, instead of two, for more-distributed ball-pullout force in clamping applications. Choice of three handle styles: Knob (K), T, and L. Patent no. 3,101,641. Made in USA.

Available in standard pin diameters from 1/4 to 1" (6 to 20mm in metric), in stainless steel only. Available from stock in many standard grip lengths. Other grip lengths are available as specials (extra charge and longer delivery time).
Double-Acting Ball Lock Pins
Double-Acting Ball Lock Pins are positive locking until released by either pushing or pulling the center spindle, which is connected to the handle. Pushing on the handle releases the balls and inserts the pin in one motion. Pulling on the handle releases the balls and removes the pin in one motion. Ball Lock Pins are high-strength, quick-release alignment pins with a precision ground shank and positive locking. Choice of three handle styles: Ring (R), T, and L. Made in USA.

Available in standard pin diameters from 3/16 to 1" (5 to 20mm in metric), in stainless steel only. Any grip length up to 6" (150mm in metric) is available as standard, at no extra charge. Available from stock in many standard grip lengths, or quickly made to order in custom lengths.

L Pins
L Pins are removable locating pins, precision ground for accurately aligning holes. The pin body is inset into a solid handle and silver soldered to create a sturdy assembly. The handle end has a small hole for attaching an optional cable. Available in pin diameters from 1/8 to 3/4", including some number and letter sizes (4 to 20mm in metric), most in a choice of several pin lengths. Made in USA.
