Automotive Glove Compartment Handle

The customer was using a semi-tubular rivet as a hinge pin in their glove compartment handle application. They were experiencing major problems during the crimping operation of the rivet, and requested a fastener that would meet the application requirements and eliminate the crimping problems.

SPIROL Coiled Spring Pins
Engineering replaced the long semi-tubular rivet with two Coiled Spring Pins. The standard duty Coiled Spring Pin was chosen for this application because it provided a similar "feel" as the rivet when the hinge was actuated.

The Coiled Spring Pin is self-retaining which eliminated the need for crimping to ensure that the pin remains in the hole.

Our staff of engineers will review your application needs and work with your design team to recommend the best solution.
