Mechanical pins - Used to connect and hold objects together and are used widely across many industries. Many fastening pins work together to create a secure link, for instance a cotter pin may be used to hold a hitch pin in place on a trailer.
Quick release pins- Designed to create a temporarily join, as they are easy to install and remove. This could be because the pins are used to connect objects together that are frequently changed. An example of this would be the use of snap ring linchpin to hold a brush hog onto the hydraulic arms of a tractor.
Dowel Pins- There are also more permanent fastening pins, such as pull dowel pins. These pull pins require a special tool to install and remove them and might be used to precisely align machinery or furniture components. They typically are only removed if they get damaged and need replaced.
