Hey guys, one of the Swim Platform Pins fell out the other day out on the lake. Any idea what these types of Pins are called so I can replace it.

Thanks

They are called swivel lock pins. Search online and you'll find plenty of places that carry them.

I just went to hardware store and bought Clevis Pins

home depot carries clevis pins. much more secure than the pos that skiers sends with the boats.
I busted 4 swivel pins the first year, and are still on my first set of clevis 2 years later...

no. think it's 5/16, but just take the one you have left in and match it up.
I bought 4, 2 to use and have 2 spares on the boat, but haven't used one yet..

agree! definitely go with these, way stronger than the stock swivels and cheap

I just bought the clevis pins myself from Home Depot. Drilled out new stainless brackets to 5/16". Everything good to go now.

1/4" fits perfectly on the stock holes.

thanks for the tips!
