Ball lock pins according to aviation standards (NASM / MS 17984 - 17987) are self-locking, single acting pins. The balls are unlocked without tools by means of a press button. Often ball lock pins are are also called locking pin, safety pin or quick release pin. They can be used as fixing, locking, connecting, adjusting or for a quick change of positions. Ball lock pins are used in Ground Support (GSE) or in Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO). Ball locking pins are used, for example, as gear pin or steering bypass pin for pushback.
Ball lock pins are extremely resistant to shearing, corrosion resistant and thus optimally protected against wear.
