Wichard Patented Self Locking Mechanism

Wichard Self Locking Feature

The Wichard Design and Development Team have come up with an ingenious method of preventing the shackle pin from loosening accidentally.

Firstly, the head of the pin screws a bit further into the shackle than usual.

Then the design indentations play their part.

The specially shaped pin head locates into an indentaion at each quarter turn.

The pin is locked in position, but it is still possible to undo the pin with a shackle key.
