THE Sky-Loc range of rapid release pins, available from Concept Fasteners , has a wide range of uses for both fastening and locating operations. The pins operate on a locking ball principle assuring secure and safe fastening.

These positive locking pins will not release until the button on the handle is depressed. Once the button is depressed, the balls retract into the pin allowing the pin to be removed from the hole.

Because they are positive locking, they can replace traditional fasteners such as cotter pins, nuts and bolts, hitch pins, etc., in many applications. They also allow the user to remove the pin without the use of tools, saving time and lost parts.

The pins are available in three different materials: commercial grade stainless steel, high strength stainless and steel, for both fastening and locating operations.

The commercial grade Sky-Loc pins are made from 304 stainless steel and are designed for applications where shear strengths are not demanding. While these pins offer lower shear strengths than other positive locking pins, they are strong enough to meet the needs for many applications. These pins take advantage of the positive locking and rapid release features at a more affordable price.

The high strength Sky-Loc pins are made from 17-4 stainless steel and are designed for applications where higher shear strengths are required. This strength makes it a clear choice for a wide range of demanding applications.

The Sky-Loc hardened and plated steel pins offer high strength and economical cost. They are suited to applications where strength is needed and corrosion is not a factor.

Concept Fasteners is the sole Australian distributor for Big Sky Distribution.
