Review of Redline Hitch Accessories 516-212TR


Today we're going to be reviewing part number 516-212TR. This is Redline's Snapper Pin. Snapper pins have many uses on equipment, trailers, couplers, pintels and many more applications. The quick-connect and disconnect feature makes them very easy to use and very desirable. This one in particular has a nice, double-wire mechanism that's going to keep it securely locked during use. The pin diameter is going to measure 5/16 of an inch.

We take a measurement of the amount of usable space that we have, or the usable length; it's going to be from the clip portion right here to the base of that collar. That's going to give us a measurement of about 2-1/2 inches. Overall length of the unit is going to measure right around 3 inches. We take a measurement from the top of the pin to the base of that double-wire mechanism; that's going to give us a measurement of 1-5/8 of an inch. The last measurement I'm going to give you is just the measurement of the actual pin from the base of the collar to the end of the pin.

That's going to give us a measurement of about 2-3/4 of an inch. It's a really simple installation and operation. All you've got to do is place the 5/16 inch pin through whatever pinhole you need to, depending on your particular application, bring the clip portion around. Now, this is a round-style tab so it's not a square design. That pin's going to fit right here in this little guide tracking system and all you've got to do is push it into place and it's going to snap securely into position.

That's going to do it for our review of part number 516-212TR. This is Redline's Snapper Pin with a 5/16 inch diameter pin. .
