    I made a stainless steel locking pin myself for the cb6000. Feels better with much more security than the plastic pins.
    The plastic pins are easy to cut with a kitchen knife! Wife is happy and i am trapped and at Her mercy..
    Now it would take some serious tools and time to cut the hard stainless steel. Of course one can cut the plastic but that feels dangerous.
    Suddenly it actually works as a chastity device.

    I have been looking for metal locking pins for the CB range for ages. I don't understand why they don't make them as standard. Also don't understand why they don't make lightweight metal versions of the CB3000 and 6000.

    Anyone know where I can buy metal pins, or might i be able to persuade you to make one for me too. I don't have the tools or expertise, so would gladly pay for your kindness.

    Go to your local hardware store ask them if they have clevis pins, well that's what we call them in the states, i bought them in a size that fits me 3k. They come with 5 or so predrilled holes. All you have to do is pick the one you want to use and drill it out some to allow the lock to fit. Cut it to length and girnd or file the edge round.

    Clevis pins sounds like a good idea. Do they have them in stainless steel? (Don't want to get rusty...)
    The problem is the oval shape of the pin for cb6000 series. If you find one with correct big diameter
    you still need to shape the oval form.
    I prefer stainless steel, you are more safe from allergic reactions and you can have a shower without rust afterwards.
    Maybe i have too much of a mechanical brain? Stainless steel is very hard to cut. Mild steel is only a little bit better than plastic if you want to feel secure from escape.

    Sophia,

    i don't know if they are stainless or not could possibly be zinc but i have had mine for over a year, wear it in the shower daily and it hasn't rusted yet.

    i didn't think about the oval shape of the 6k. i have a 3k and it works just fine.

    Just saw this in another thread
    Email [color="#000000"]Lms4620@tiscali.co.uk[/color] they do a security loop and ring that does work for 3 and 6 models and is reasonable in the curve and 2000 as well as stainless steel lockpins forall cb and birdlock.

    Thanks everyone. Clevis pins sound like the way to go.

    I also used a clevis pin, bought at Lowe's (home hardware chain store), with my CB3K. There are pictures of it in my Albums. That was one of my objections to the CB6K when it came out: the oval pin cross section would make it hard to use a metal replacement pin. That, and there were too many small separate parts. If you can afford it, buy one of Mature Metal's products. In fact, he may be able to make a metal pin that would fit the CB6K. Wouldn't hurt to ask.

    I don't remember the diameter of the pin for the CB3K. I just measured the plastic one with a ruler, and whatever standard size was close was a perfect fit. I think the one I bought was measured in inches, as is the custom here in the US of A, (which has yet to catch up to the rest of the world in using metric).

    You will need a Dremel tool, or something similar, to enlarge the hole for the lock to fit.

    Thanks so much for the idea of a clevis pin! They are cheap, so even if you have to replace them every year for corrosion it isn't bad.

    I bought a stainless steel clevis pin from a hardware shop yesterday. I don't think you'll
    get them from the big name DIY shops. It cost the grand sum of 15p and fits the CB3K perfectly.
    I just need to driill out the hole to make it slightly bigger to get the padlock through. Very easy and
    cheaper than chips for a locking pin that can't be cut.

    I'm a bit late here, but I just want to cover some things.

    First off, AL Enterprises and their sales associates will not warranty their devices against breakage if you are using metal locking pins or guide pins. The reason is that the nylon pins that come with the units have a little bit of "give" to them, which allows the cage to flex slightly when up against (for example) tight jeans, exercise equipment, etc. The metal pins *may* place stress on the area around the holes, causing stress fractures that might lead to breakage.

    Of course, I've broken the cuff rings using the plastic pins anyway; in fact, I find that I go through about 2 solid rings a year.

    With that in mind, I have experimented with making my own stainless steel locking pins. Since I own a machine shop, I made them from scratch, instead of modifying a clevis pin. This way I could duplicate (and actually, improve upon) the original plastic design. I've made several of varying lengths, and have not noticed any issues. That said, my cage already has some slight stress fractures which I've needed to repair with super glue; however, this had happened while still using the plastic pins - in fact, the fractures are around the (plastic) guide pins.Go figure.

    So, as long as you are aware that using a stainless steel locking pin could possibly create stress fractures and void the warranty, then modifying a clevis pin might be your best bet.

    And yes, I have considered selling my own pins, and I've got something in the works, but it's still in the planning stages at the moment.

    My Birdlock pin lasted just about a week. Cheap piece of crap. The lock itself was crap, and I had to grind down the edges because I actually scraped myself on the corner.

    I've thought about making a metal version; it wouldn't be difficult, but I just haven't been motivated enough to try it. I've been busy modifying the Fort and doing some other things.

    lockit - did you ever get the steel pin from lms4620@tiscali.co.uk? Never got one I ordered.


    Tom Allen - If you make some available - there are sure lots of us looking for an alternative to the breaking plastic locking pins.
