Pins GN 214.2
Ganter enlarging its range of pins with the pullring versions GN 214.2 / 214.3
Pins are usually found wherever constructions need to be set up, dismantled or changed quickly. This is why cotter pins with various designs and dimensions have long been part of the Ganter range of elements.
One typical application is their use in height adjustment.
Ganter has now once more enlarged its product variety by adding the pin types GN 214.2 and GN 214.3. Instead of the handling knob, they now feature a pullring – a design which is always advantageous in confined spaces because the ring is simply dropped sideways. The pullring also allows the easy attachment of the GN 111.2 retaining cable which prevents the loss of the pin. The new pin is available both in steel design (GN 214.2) and in stainless steel design (GN 214.3) if this special application is required for use in corrosive atmosphere or in areas with higher requirements in terms of hygiene. Both variants are available in pin diameters ranging from 6 to 16 millimetres. As with all Ganter pins, the locking pawls can be released by a red and readily identifiable polyamide pushbutton.
The square shape of the locking pawls made of stainless sheet steel creates a linear contact area (instead of the point contact in ball-type locking pins) which is capable of taking relatively high axial forces and so preventing the inadvertent loosening of the connection. The locking pawls will be unlocked only after manually operating the pushbutton, allowing the locking pawl to be pulled off. This principle is also used in Types GN 114.2 (steel with PA knob), GN 114.3 (stainless steel with PA knob) and GN 114.6 in all stainless steel design.
