The Small but Significant Shutter Pins

By Alvin Green Subscribe to RSS | July 11th 2012 | Views:

Any industry today would be found to have hundreds of miscellaneous hardware in their premise especially when they have factories producing goods and products of any kind. There would be hundreds and thousands of odds and ends that keep the operational components in place for a smooth production; these would probably include shutter pins, rollers, sockets and the like.

Miscellaneous hardware

Shutter pins may be small items in the industrial hardware section with a ‘miscellaneous’ category but these small miscellaneous entities play a big role in the industry’s application. Many consumers may think that shutter pins may be difficult to find as they are small pieces of hardware which seem insignificant. However, there are efficient and professional hardware stores which keep a healthy supply of shutter and tension pins for the desperate consumers or technicians who do repairs.

Tension or shutter pins need to be of industry standard to be functional even though they are small pieces. They can be of Nylon 6 material which is the standard shutter pin range that offers durability and strength for many shutter applications.

Shutter pins may differ from dowel pins where the latter are usually used on extension tables which have plastic pins. Retainer clips on the other hand are used in the opening of a door or retaining panels and screens.


Tension or shutter pins have certain specifications to be rendered useful. They are usually made of nylon material in natural color as they are fitted into the desired environment in an enclosure. Hence, there is little view of these pins when they are put in use. Thus, the colors do not matter. The natural color is cheaper to manufacture as well as allows the consumer or technician to identify the condition of the pin or its presence during maintenance or replacement.

Shutter pins can be of various sizes and shapes to fit a diverse of applications; however, each form or shape must be of the right industry standard to ensure a correct and safe functioning of the component it is used in which would allow a smooth operation and desired results.

Shutter pins may seem small and insignificant but they can offer the desired strength in keeping the different components together for a smooth process to happen. When used correctly, these small pieces are very durable for the shutter application they are designed for.


Most hardware stores should carry shutter pins although some smaller sites may not have the full range offering. However, with the Internet availability today, it is easy to order any type of pins for any shutter application online.
