Rue Ring for Clevis Pin

Have you ever use a Rue Ring? Does it work well?

No but they look great. What kind of stainless are they and where are you thinking of using them?

You must be a farmer, I haven't called a shackle a clevis since I got down off the tractor.

They look good, but with that sharp end sticking out, you would need to tape them to keep from catching lines, sails, bits of flesh, etc. My choice would be what they call a circle cotter, since it is much less likely to catch things. Just another opinion. _______Grant.

No. It's for a clevis pin. Shackle pins are threaded and much heavier.

The rue ring does look easier to use, but those ends look more dangerous than cotter pins! I'll stick with circle cotters.

No, but you will need stainless ones, those are zinc. I have used circular split rings and have not had good results t them.

All I know about them, I read on the posted link. Just found them using google. It looks like they have ss version. I'd be using them on the pin holding my mast up and the pin holding my rudder on. Just a 15 foot sailing dinghy.

Re: Rue Ring for Clevis Pin

The only place I have encountered these are on Raritan toilets where they are used to connect the various handle/hinge components.

They are quicker/easier to remove than a standard round clevis (split) ring, but should likely be used with caution in critical applications.
