That's funny. I have noticed those loops on my old tractor's lift arms for a few decades now, and I never stopped to think that was what they are for.
My old MF has those holder loops. A great way to lose a pin. Drive over some brush or tall grass, ring gets opened, and ‘poof’ it’s gone.

Ouch clips, particularly when they hit the thumbnail.

Ever use a “Band-Aid” before”
”Kleen-Ex”?
“Crescent wrench” is a perfectly fine name for an adjustable or open end wrench….we use it around here all the time.

I only discovered this after seeing lynch pins in those loops on new tractors at the dealer.

Some lynch pins are a pain in the arse. Flip em one way and they stay tight, flip em the other way to lock and they'll slide out on you. I've lost em from cultivater wheels to three point hitch attachments. Next time at the tractor store buy an assortment for your equipment. And on your finding that pin, check all around. I just found one on top of my 3 pt. quick attach bar, but be dammed where it came from. Maybe I left an extra one or somethimg. Wife might be right... I need Previgen memorey meds. lol

This pin fell off my new T474. Anyone have an idea what it's from? FYI I've done a lot of loader work since I bought it (10 hours on tractor). thank youView attachment 736343
Walk around your loader and have a look at the all the pins and you should see more of these. Must be one missing on one of the pins.

They sell lynch pins that are stronger. If there is a Tractor supply store you will see some that are darker, black in color. These have a stiffer spring and will fall off less often. They cost a little more, just pay more attention to finger placement.

Was there anyone around while you were working? I have a neighbor that brags about how his tractor is better and cleaner and blah blah blah. When he is working on a project with his tractor, I go over to 'talk' and drop a few lynch pins (heavily used) along with other items on the ground where he can find them. My cellular game camera records him crawling all over his tractor for hours looking for where the pins or parts came from.

Don't forget the ominous "Motor Stables" e.g., mil speak for routine/preventative maintenance.

As far as the Fallopian tubes, when I was still working in the OR, we used to tell the new scrub nurses/OR Techs we would need some for the next days surgeries. The whole hospital was in on the gag and would send them from one end to the other trying to find them. The smarter ones would realize what was going on after the second or third stop, others would be sent from the lab, maternity, CMS, OBGYN, ER, etc, etc. until someone finally let them in on the fun - kill joys!
Don't they have to take anatomy classes? I'm surprised so many don't know what a fallopian tube is.
