Invented by Pivot Point, the popular Bow-Tie Locking Cotter™ works like a Hair Pin Cotter or R clip, but locks itself on! Push or pull the cotter pin leg into the mating hole, the Bow-Tie Locking Cotter Pin snaps into a zero- tension locked position. It is easily released by lifting the loop and sliding the cotter pin off. The Bow-Tie reduces the risk of being accidentally knocked or vibrated off, as with hairpin cotters, R clips or other cotter pin clips. Made from hard drawn MB spring wire with an attractive zinc plated finish, or stainless steel where available. Use in any hole location to ensure secure fastening. Other cotters pins available from Pivot Point include Circle Cotters, Hair Pin Cotters and our other popular cotter pin invention- Rue Ring Locking Cotter Pins.
