Every bolt, screw and split pin was taken out and made useless.
The split pin should be passed through the bolt as near as possible to the nut.
Another use of this plier, also indicated, is to bend over the ends of the split pin in order to prevent it from falling out.
To use, the open end of the tube is pushed over the valve stem and a split pin pushed through the tube and stem.
The simplest form of pin used for this purpose is the split pin, shown in Fig. 431.
Additional security is obtained by drilling a hole through the point of the bolt, and fitting it with a split pin E.
