    Default How to take apart Hammerlock link

    Does any one know how to take these apart, I have the 3/8 size which has split spring sleeve, which is obvious, with a little force the pin will push out.

    This older 1/2" one has a solid sleeve in the middle and I can't seem to be able to push the pin out, these are pretty expensive in grade 80 or 100 which I think the yellow one is, I would like to reuse it if possible.

    Thanks, JB.

    I dont know if they come apart. I spent a half a day trying to get one apart and never did. I even tried putting it in the press and it wouldn't move.

    You could cut away the pin with a hand held grinder with the slim discs and replace the pin with a graded bolt and lock nut.

    I'd get the highest grade available if the application is a critical one.

    Perhaps some heat and a press. Are the outside pin ends peened over a little from use and could the sleeve be rusted on.

    No, the pin moves freely about 1/8" back and forth. there is another smaller sleeve/retainer between the outer sleeve and the pin, everything moves around freely.

    Tried pushing the pin out in a med size vise and broke the vise, didn't have enough thread in the vise and broke a couple threads off the end of casting the screw threads into. vise is OK now after some mods.
    I do have a monster vise I can try, but I think there must be a trick, found some info on these things with Google search but nothing describing dis-assembly.

    I don't think they are supposed to come apart.

    Found another link that leads me to believe the only way to disassemble it is to break the "stud tube" and replace it with the new "split retainer"
