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.

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.

Already had a shorter pin and was looking for a disc lock for a Beemer but their brake discs are net standard. Came up with the idea of a slightly longer pin through the brake mount and an a squire padlock. Works a treat. Also has other capability as hand...

Having recently purchased a VFR800f I decided to upgrade the garage security, and having used Pragmasis in the past for securing my mountain bikes it was a no brainer not to use them again. A 340mm Anti Pinch Pin, 16mm x 1.2m chain with a SS65CS padlock n...

Excellent, but double check size!

First up, ordering and feedback from David was great. I got an immediate apology on placing my order (in the late afternoon) that it would not go out the same day - but it went out the next day and arrived with no issues.

The pin itself (with rubber s...

Perfect for the job.

Bought along with 16mm chain and Squire SS65CS padlock.

It is perfect for my requirements. Having nowhere suitable to fit a decent sized chain to my bike, this makes locking up the bike in the garage so quick and simple.

Pin through rear axle, att...

This is probably the third pin I've ordered, as the two previous pins were inadvertently left on the bike after removal of the lock. They are a brilliant solution and with the addition of a short chain and second pin, two bikes can be linked with one sho...
