The Anti-Pinch Pin helps you to use a 16mm or 19mm chain on items that have insufficient clearance to allow the chain itself to pass through. It is designed to be used with a Squire SS65CS (and SS65CS-XLN) padlock (other padlocks will not fit). The SS65CS lock is recommended over the SS65CS-XLN.

The Anti-Pinch Pin is available in a variety of lengths - select the length you require from the drop-down list below. Note that these are all nominal lengths - the overall length (i.e. including the thickness of the head) is about 10mm greater and manufacturing tolerances mean these are not precise - please contact us if you have a particularly tight constraint on length.

Please click for important information on Anti-Pinch Pin suitability and further details.

Note: An upgraded version (the Super Anti-Pinch Pin) is also available that offers improved angle grinder resistance.

You might find our Reminder Cable is a useful addition to help ensure you remove the Pin before riding away!When using a cable on an Anti-Pinch Pin, we recommend that you push the Pin through the cable before putting the Pin through the bike, so the cable sits next to the head of the Pin. That makes it far less likely that you might remove the cable but leave the Pin in the bike and still ride away, which is what we don't want! :-)

We also offer optional protection products to help keep your valuable items from damage caused by these pieces of metal! A self-adhesive rubber washer that we stick on the underside of the Pin or Super Pin head, plus heatshrink sleeving that we shrink onto the shaft of the Pin, plus a plastic end cap that is pushed onto the tip of the Pin. These offer protection to the majority of the exposed metalwork of the Pin or Super Pin. We can fit all these items (select the option when adding a Pin to your shopping cart), and the component items themselves are also available separately. Beware that you should still handle the Pin carefully as these protection products will only give a certain amount of protection to your valuables. You should also avoid exposing them to any hot surfaces, such as hot exhausts or engines.

Note: The plastic protective cap doesn't quite fit through the Protector 19mm chain links and thus may not be useful in combination with that chain. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Note: Shorter version Pins ("Mini Pins") are available for adapting undersize ground anchors to suit larger chains and for other situations where a smaller length, smaller head (and cheaper price) are desirable. More details are available in a separate product entry.

The Pins are supplied with either a zinc plated or black electrophoretic finish.

Very effective on my K1300

Should have bought this year's ago. Allows me to lock 3 bikes to a tree using my 4metres of Pragmasis 16mm chain. A Pragmasis U lock locks the back wheel of the first bike to the chain, then a link goes over the anti-pinch pin through the rear wheel tubread more
Excellent Idea

Used on a VFR800, through the rear wheel spindle and swingarm. (plus the chain, padlock and ground anchor),
Tea leaf has to remove the whole swingarm, or make a hell of a racket.
In practice they'd just look for something easier to nick.
Essential for securing my bike.

Without the pin there is nothing substantial to connect my Blackbird to my chain and anchor leaving the wheels as the only option and the weakest link.
A really simple and elegant solution.
