Erwin Halder KG is the leading manufacturer of metric ball lock pins
Available within 14 days even if ordered with custom dimensions
Erwin Halder KG is widely known for their vast selection of standard parts and colossal variety of available variants. One area where they tower head and shoulders above the competition is ball lock pins. Not only do they carry and constantly expand an exhaustive in-stock selection of various dimensions and models in this area, but they can also supply many custom dimensions in no time at all - thanks to optimised manufacturing processes.
Ball lock pins are used for a host of different applications across a wide range of sectors and industries - in other words, anywhere where connections need to be released frequently and quickly, e.g. for attaching loudspeaker systems and securing transport container locks or as belt strap clasps in air planes and fasteners of brake discs, front spoilers and rear wings in motor sports. Our portfolio also includes pneumatically controlled ball lock pins for use in mechanical engineering, e.g. in fully automatic tool changers.
A sizeable in-stock range expanded yet again
The available variants and dimensions of our ball lock pins need to be as manifold as the areas of applications for which they are used. After all, every application comes with its own set of specific requirements: While all ball lock pins need to prevent connections from coming undone inadvertently, certain types of ball lock pins must be particularly inconspicuous – even in various different sizes. Erwin Halder KG keeps in stock a supply of twelve different variants that come in various models - both with metric and imperial dimensions.
“We take great pride in the fact that our selection offers such an enormous range of options and that we still managed to expand this selection even further. The latest enlargement of our ball lock pin range has earned us the spot as the leading manufacturer in this segment. Available from stock are ball lock pins with function lengths, i.e. the length from the ball to the collar, of up to 150 mm and with diameters ranging from 5 mm to 25 mm. On request, we can also manufacture custom ball lock pins with longer dimensions and larger diameters”, explains Bernd Janner, Sales Manager at Erwin Halder KG.
Even if sporting extended function lengths and diameters, our ball lock pins with diameters and lengths of up to 25 mm and 150 mm, respectively, are available with an ergonomic T or L-handle made of aluminium, with a compact button handle and with a safety handle protecting against inadvertent detachment. The latest addition to this already extensive selection is a simplified version and a version that comes with an ergonomic thermoplastic handle. Both of these new models can be supplied in four colour variants with diameters and lengths of up to 25 mm - previously 20 mm - and 120 mm, respectively. Also new to the product family is a special version that offers an adjustable clamping length. The clamping length on this new model can be adjusted continuously over up to 10 mm by means of a nut/lock nut. All ball lock pins included in Halder’s standard portfolio are made of either stainless steel (1.4305) or precipitation hardened stainless steel (1.4542).
Customized solutions delivered in a flash
“We routinely tailor our ball lock pins to the specific needs of our customers, allowing them to use the product in exactly the way they need to in their components”, adds Bernd Jenner. “If these custom ball lock pins are based on catalogue standards - and include, for instance, standard handle options and no additional surface treatment - we can deliver quantities of up to 500 units inside of 14 days.”
In an effort to complete orders for ball lock pins with custom dimensions even faster and guarantee a delivery time of two weeks for the majority of these made-to-order ball lock pins, Erwin Halder KG has optimised their manufacturing process specifically for these products. This enhanced manufacturing capability has cut down process cycle times tremendously.
The fast lane to the right ball lock pin

This configurator streamlines both the process of finding a perfectly tailored solution and the search for standard parts.
Erwin Halder KG boasts long years of experience in the manufacturing of custom-made solutions and engineers products that match the customer's particular application to a T. “If a customer, for instance, requires resistance to salt water, acid or excess temperatures, we will gladly make them ball lock pins from special materials such as A4 steels or titanium. Throw us a challenge and allow us to impress you!”, concludes Bernd Janner.
