KINGPIN

AtlasKingpin

The grade 8 kingpin is custom made to taper at a 1:20 ratio. The baseplate hole is tapered as well which centers the kingpin and allows for a precise ride since the kingpin will sync up to the baseplate as snugly as possible when tightened down. This zero tolerance fit provides a secure grip of the kingpin along its entire length whereas a straight hole only truly secures the kingpin along its top area, leaving the rest unsupported in the opening (slop!). With the Atlas design, the kingpin and the baseplate act as one unit instead of two separate parts.
