Type Retaining Methods
There are three options for holding type in these holders: a cotter pin, a draw pin, or Pannier’s special Roto-Pin. Cotter and draw pins are simple and economical methods of holding type. For easy and quick type changes, the Roto-Pin features a quick lever release to lock in type.
