Aluminum Scaffold, Short Pin Interlock Clips
Short pin interlock clips what are they used for?
Short pin interlock clips are used on your aluminum scaffolding to hold the frames together. Short pin interlock clips are easy to use and field replaceable if lost.
How to use your short pin interlock clips:
There are two holes at the top of each frame. The bottom hole is used to hold the interlock clip while not in use. The top hole is used to connect the two frames together with the short pin interlock clip. You will notice on the short pin interlock clip that there is a positioning line. This line should be at the bottom of the short pin interlock clip when positioning it in the top hole or bottom hole. If the positioning line is at the top of the short pin interlock clip, the clip will not be able to fit into the top hole. This is due to the pin being offset making a clearance issue between the short pin interlock clip and the bushing of the scaffolding frame.
The short pin interlock clip is made to stay on:
The short pin interlock clip is made of sprung steel. The reason for this is for the ability to pull the clip apart a bit and slide it down into the bottom hole or up into the top hole without having to pull it off the scaffolding. This is why the ends of the short pin interlock clip are bent inwards. This gives you a place to grab when pulling the pin apart as well as preventing it from coming off the scaffolding frame.
Short pin interlock clips are used on your aluminum scaffolding to hold the frames together. Always use short pin interlock clips that are made for your brand of aluminum scaffolding. Do not use other items to hold your frames together for example nails, screws, miscellanies metals, etc.
