A hitch pin is a removable fastener commonly used for securing trailer hitches to vehicles, as well as attaching agricultural implements to tractors. The design typically includes a straight pin with a handle or knob on one end and a clip or cotter pin on the other end. Hitch pins facilitate quick and temporary connections by passing through pre-drilled holes in the components, allowing for easy attachment and removal. Widely recognized for their versatility, hitch pins are employed in recreational, agricultural, and industrial settings where frequent coupling and decoupling are necessary. Their straightforward design and efficient functionality make them a practical choice for applications requiring a reliable yet easily adjustable connection between towed equipment and towing vehicles.
