I use the quick release pins in place of the bolts used to attached the center console on my boat to the deck. The quick release pins allow me to quickly pull the pins so I can tilt the console forward to allow my boat to fit in my garage for storage. Without tilting the console forward there is not enough clearance for the boat to be backed into the garage.

Received a pin that was missing one if its two ball bearings. Given that they should never come out, I have to doubt the quality of manufacturing. Would not rely on this for anything critical.

    Comments about Ball-Lok Quick-Release Pins:

    I have 12 places on my Skeeter Iceboat that need to be pinned. I replaced all 12 of the clevis pin with safety pins the boat came with, with these ball-lock quick release pins. There were 3/16 dia, 1/4 dia, & 5/16 dia pins of various lengths. These new ball-locks speed up assembly and dis assembly immensely, thus allowing for more sailing time. My only complaint is that West Marine doesn't carry a more complete line of lengths. They need to fix this. I had to go to APS to fill in the missing sizes and at about double the cost.

            The are a good alternative to conventional clevis pins. However, beware of the locking balls. In some instances, one of them is stuck and the pin is then worthless. I had to return the first one I bought. You can double check this in the store by actuating it inside the bag.

            This was recommended by salesman as a quick release for Wichard snap shackles I ordered. Although the pin size was correct, the length was much too long. This product had to be returned because of size issue.

            Got this thing home to find that one of the balls was missing, so another drive to the store. This time I will inspect it closely.

              i used the quick release pin to replace a wire ring that i use to connect the forestay to the bow. It fits perfectly and is very quick to insert or remove .... since my wife does this while i hold the mast steady it is worthwhile to use quick release
