A ROLL PIN (also called Tension Pin or Spring Pin) is a mechanical fastener that secures the position of two or more parts of a machine relative to each other. Roll Pins have a body diameter which is larger than the hole diameter, and a chamfer on either one or both ends to facilitate starting the pin into the hole. The 'spring' action of the pin allows it to compress as it assumes the diameter of the hole. The force exerted by the pin against the hole wall retains it in the hole, therefore a 'spring' pin is considered a self retaining fastener.
