How to fit a Spring Pin / Roll Pin…

Here is some helpful information when it comes to fitting Spring Pins, also known as Roll Pins.

Firstly, make sure the spring pin or roll pin is the correct size. These are always listed by the hole size they are fitting in to. For example, a 5mm spring pin, will suit a 5mm hole.

Then make sure the holes in both the Spring Pin, and the hole in your application are aligned accurately so the pin can be inserted smoothly.

Once the pin is aligned to the hole, gently tap the pin in using controlled strikes to avoid misalignment or deformation.

Finally, ensure the pin has a flush fit to the components surface, this will provide a secure connection.
