Clevis Pins are a type of fastener that will allow the rotation or swivel of the connected parts about the axis of the pin linkage. A clevis pin, sometimes referred to as a link pin or hinge pin, consists of a head, shank and cross drilled hole. When using a fastening, such as a clevis pin, the hole which is at the opposite end of the pin to the head is inserted through the items to be linked, and then a cotter pin, R clip or similar retaining fastener is inserted through the hole to fix the clevis pin in place.
Like a set screw, a clevis pin is often used to prevent two other pieces from moving relative to each other, A clevis pin is less adjustable, in that it can hold two parts in exactly one relative position (because holes must be drilled in both parts) A clevis pin is also more secure, as it is less apt to work loose due to vibration., this is why clevis pins are often found in agricultural machinery.
