i was thinking about getting a bunch of cotter pins and adding them to my toolbox for when i go out to the field. i could just use a new one each time. bend it back and it wouldnt move. Is this a good idea?

I don't understand, I've used these same pins for years and never replaced them. I'm thinking your field may be selling you some sort of soft metal pins(cheap immitation) rather than hardened spring steel ones. That's the only reason they would bend and pop off repetitively -

no actually my field carries lots of spyder parts, and it is a spyder pin lock, not the pin, however each time i play i seem to misplace it with my wreckless running/sliding skills. i am trying to get a pin that will not be able to just pop off or slide out.

Man I wish I could remember where I saw it, (maybe someone else will) but there's a company that makes a replacement pin that doesn't use a cotter key to hold it in place. It's a quick disconnect type pin that has what looks like a push spring release, or with a type of ball bearing spring loaded detent. It's a totally different design than the stock unit. I'll look for it and give you the link if I find it.

You can use a key ring in the hole for the pin. It will not come out and you can run and slide all you like.

and if you need replacements you can go to a local home improvement store and get them. They have them in all sizes, so either bring your current pin, or bring the gun so you can get ones that fit. But if you use the key ring idea you will not lose it any more.

Use a safety pin. Ugly as sin, but works! (Also, Hacker's idea is a good one!)

key rings are a pain in the tush...

take a piece of fishing line 10lb test would suffice...tie it to the clip and leave about 3" and then tie it to the back frame screw (under the head) and tighten it on top of it
