Bypass Pin Kits
The Bypass Pin Kits are used in the Ground Support (GSE). They are used as Gear Pin or Steering Bypass Pin for pushback.
When the pin is inserted, the steering hydraulics on the landing gear are bypassed. This allows the aircraft to be moved by a tractor without having to deactivate the entire aircraft hydraulics. A warning streamer with the text "Remove before flight" (RBF Flag) is attached to the ball lock pin by means of a retaining cable.
These new threaded lifting pins with rotatable shackle have the benefit that the shackle can rotate freely around the pin thanks to the bearing ring with its maintenance-free plain bearing bush.
