My Dad's Diary : Tues 3rd June 1947

"Dull today. 

Fitted new cotters to bike. Garden at night - put runner bean net up.

Cotter pins locked the pedal arm on to the drive shaft of the bike.
I remember replacing mine once.
Worn pins would cause the pedal to jerk dangerously when you put pressure on them.
Halfords used to sell them!
