Maintenance free with no servicing unlike costly greasable clevis pins.
The ANTI-SEIZE COTTER PIN is designed to hold the clevis pin forcing the slack adjuster to rotate around it each time the brake is applied. It will also keep itself from seizing to the inside of the clevis pin holes through tension reflection movement between the cotter pin and the clevis pin holes. Without these rotations the clevis pin can become seized due to corrosion on the contacting metal surfaces.

WHICH PIN DO YOU NEED?
WHY DO I NEED THE ANTI-SEIZE COTTER PIN?
Manufacturers of automatic slack adjusters advise the clevis pin must always be free to rotate so not to cause brake binding.
A seized clevis pin is a time consuming process to remove tying up both maintenance staff and the equipment.
Often a hammer or a torch is the only option to release a seized pin. This stress and heat means potential damage to internal working parts of the slack adjuster.
The ANTI-SEIZE COTTER PIN is manufactured from STAINLESS STEEL to reduce corrosion.
The ANTI-SEIZE COTTER PIN is inexpensive, easy to install and completely maintenance free.
