Locating Pin

Different size holes in plates l0 and l2 are held in a proper relationship by a pin l4.

The pin l4 has a cylindrical portion l6 that is press fit into the hole in an assembling mount l3. Rounded tips l8 of the remaining portion l4 of the pin contact the sidewall of the holes in plates l0 and l2 while spring 20 insures a tight fit in the larger hole in plate l2 and holds plate l0 in position until plates l0 and l2 are attached. Once the plates l0 and l2 have been screwed together, they are removed from the assembling mount and the pin l4 is removed from them. The holes in the plates l0 and l2 remain aligned for the insertion of a fastening bolt.

The illustrated locating pin has one spring 20. A locating pin with multiple springs can be used. The multiple-spring embodiment has one spring on each of the faces of the portion l4 of the pin.
