The GN 124.1 Quick Release Pins from JW Winco are used for quickly connecting various parts and workpieces that are made of materials like iron and steel. A neodymium magnet is recessed into the underside of the bolt and axially retains the bolt in its inserted position. High-quality surfaces with perpendicular locating holes promote magnetic flux to produce excellent axial retention.

“As quick release pins are some of the most universal and frequently used standard parts across many technical applications, we are excited to have improved our pins by eliminating the mechanical retainer, as a strong magnet takes care of the necessary axial hold,” said John M. Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco.

The materials of the locking pin are selected in such a way that the magnetic flow is not hampered and the holding strength can be completely utilized. Instead of a tactile latching action, the magnetic pin orientates its correct position as soon as the magnet contacts the hole edge.”

Like all JW Winco quick release pins, the new Stainless Steel Magnetic Quick Release Pins also have holes around the knob edge. Available with customized specifications for diameter and lengths, these pins also allow for attaching retaining cables or ball chains that protect the pins from getting lost. These include JW Winco’s GN 111.5 Stainless Steel Ball Chains, with 2 key rings; GN 111.2 Stainless Steel Retaining Cables, with 1 key ring and 1 mounting tab or with 2 key rings; and GN 111.4 Plastic Spiral Retaining Cables, with Stainless Steel Connecting Rings.

The adjustable hand levers with solid stainless steel handles are intended for use in hygienic design applications, such as in the packaging, food processing, medical, and dairy industries. the sealed mounting surface enables fastening without dead spaces. The high quality finish and impervious exterior surfaces prevent adherence of dirt and facilitates cleaning.

“These levers are ideal whenever parts have to be clamped in a confined space or in a particular lever position, as the insert is connected to the lever via serrations that can easily be disengaged,” said John M. Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “When pulling up on the handle, the serration frees itself and can be re-located into any required position. Engagement is achieved by releasing the lever.”

The handle features a stainless steel precision casting, while the threaded insert is stainless steel AISI 304. The sealing ring/wiper is made of hydrogenated acrylonitrile butadiene rubber (H-NBR) that is FDA compliant and temperature resistant from -13 °F (-25 °C) to 302 °F (+150 °C).
