Clevis fasteners ensure simple selection 11 June 2021

Clevis fasteners in a complete kit format for faster and simpler specification, design and ordering are now available from standard parts and components supplier, WDS Components Ltd. The kit contains all the parts required to complete a secure fastening and is available in a wide variety of sizes and options.

Widely used in machinery automation and automotive manufacturing, clevis fasteners form pin joints with a wide range of uses from attaching machine shock absorbers to rod ends for gas struts. The clevis fastener comprises a clevis fork, clevis pin, a washer and a pin or clip used to secure the joint. WDS now supplies these components combined in an easy to order kit, removing the need for the customer to specify and select individual components.

Enabling faster design, the kits have a single part number and CAD file for download and import. Negating the need for four or more separate files when ordering clevis kit components separately, this makes design a much faster process. CAD files in a wide range of formats can be downloaded online.

The kit format also ensures compatibility according to fitting type required and size, saving time in ordering and speeding up manufacturing operations. As with all components from WDS, experienced customer service and technical support teams are available via phone and email to assist with any design specification questions engineers or procurement teams may have.
