Tongue Part - Hitch Pin and Lanyard
The 3/8" x 1 1/2" cotterless hitchpin joins the tongue clevis to the bicycle hitch. It is secured to the end of the tongue with a webbing lanyard which is fitted with a grommet to allow the connecting bolt to pass through it.
The pin is 3/8" in diameter with an effective length of 1 1/2". a small ball in embedded in the pin to prevent it from accidentally comming out of the connecting hole. It is made of steel and plated with zinc. The webbing is 5/8" wide x 8" long. It is fitted with a #0 brass spur grommet and washer on one end and a sewn loop to fit to a split ring that also passes through a hole in the head of the hitch pin.
The pin mates with the 3/8" hole in the tongue clevis and the 3/8" hole in the rod end joint affixed to the hitch.
