These high quality, marine grade silicon bronze cotter pins (also known as split pins) come in handy for all kinds of uses on a boat. From securing classic sailing yacht rigging, to locking your prop's castle nut so it doesn't fall off, they are always good to have around. Pick up a few of each size and be sure that you'll be able to solve those inevitable issues right out on the water.
Our cotter pins are made from SOLID alloy 873 silicon bronze, also known as Everdur. No plated rubbish here! They are incredibly resistant to saltwater and will hold your clevis pins, props, turnbuckles, and other various fittings securely for years to come.
We're proud to say that Fair Wind Fasteners carries the largest selection of silicon bronze cotter pins in the United States, and on the web.
Cotter pin thickness (diameter) is the thickness of the shank across both prongs, and the length is measured from the bottom of the head to the shortest prong. Please see the diagram in the photos for sizing help.

Exactly what I’ve been searching for and super speedy shipping!
Recently discovered I was not getting the quality cotter pins that I thought I was. Just because it’s stainless steel doesn’t mean it’s good. The outrageous prices the major boat dealers charge for a single stainless steel cotter pin doesn’t mean it’s good either! Looking at the purity and quality of the Silicone Bronze cotter pins it was a no brainer. I recently changed all the cotter pins in my boat props and trailer wheel bearings. Dealing with Fair Wind was a bonus, seriously, their customer care and service is second to none. Fair Wind just got another life long customer. Very respectfully, Larry Cote, Coastal North Carolina
Finally found a supplier of marine fasteners that offers good quality at a fair price and service is fast. Not sure if they offer tools; it would be a nice addition.
Awesome hardware. All according to request and of top notch materials. Just one question…how much do I have to spend to get a free t shirt?? I’ve got to be close!! Lol! Thanks.
