Aviation grade quick release ball lock pins must be manufactured to NASM norms, tested to NAS standards in a manufacturing process certified to EN91000D standards and be individually marked for full production lot identification. Wixroyd’s quick release ball lock pins meet all these requirements and are available in L, T, B or R handle variations and are ideal for in-flight or ground handling aviation applications; interior panel attachment, curtain tracking, tv monitor and folding table assemblies. A positive actuation button must be depressed to disengage the balls, allowing the shaft to be installed or removed, once released the balls engage and lock out the pin.
