    Lynch Pin Retainers

    I seem to hear locals grumping about losing lynch pins and never finding them or to find them by running over them with the mower.
    I have been using this method for about ten years and have yet to lose one. I still have them get popped off from time to time but they never get away. I drill out the butt splice with a number 43 drill to get rid of the little center bumps inside the splice them cut the wire cable to 12 inches and use a crimper to secure them.

    That is a great idea!

    I went into the GTT store to try and find the black heavy duty ones and I found these that have the chain already attached.

    Green Tractor Talk Store - Linch Pin 7/16 with Chain

    I buy the black ones at TSC, I think they are these Heavy-Duty Lynch Pin, 7/16 in. - 0265537 | Tractor Supply Company

    They are 2 to 3 times the cost but they will not open on you when you do not want them to! They are tough.

    Amazon has them, but I am unsure if out tractor pins are 7/16.
