Cleco >< Skin pins

Recommended Posts

As per title.

Which one is the prefered one ?

Have tried the skin pins but not the Cleco.

Does the Cleco pull hard enough ?

Pros and cons please.

My only experience of either is on aircraft work (apprentice aeronautical engineer) and i prefer clecos as they are much quicker/easier to use. The have a strong spring and pull the skins together very effectively, as opposed to hand tightening the collar. Don't forget you fill require the cleco pliers as well.

Hope this is of some use

The Cleco ones seem to pull up well enough when i've used them, but that has been on light gauge sheet. The big advantage is the time they take to set and remove which is quick with the pliers.
