    Using Lynch Pins for Mounting iMatch

    I had to take my iMatch off to put on the post hole digger, and it was kind of a pain using the cotter pins that came stock with the 3 point pins. Anybody use small lynch pins instead? I was wondering if there was a good reason not to. It will make a quick hitch for the quick hitch.

    I use lynch pins with my Land Pride QH, and no problems.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I have had the small sized lynch pins on my iMatch for 10 years probably.

    I bought hairpins at the dealer before I even installed mine. I'm not wrestling those large cotter pins anytime I need to take the iMatch off.

    As soon as I got the iMatch I changed put in lynch pins. If you look in the picture you can see them.
    And for those of you who don't have 3 hands, this dolly can help you put the iMatch on. Once it's resting on the dolly, you can swing it up with 1 hand to meet the lower draft arm. Use your other hand to pop in the pin. The higher wood on the back keeps the iMach from slipping off, the dolly moves to let the swing happen.
    And when you take the iMatch off, it's easy to move around.

    Well if that's what we're saying, then I'm jumping in too! I don't use the dreaded cotter pins either.
