Le Vélo-Dictionnaire
<<Français/Anglais
clavette (f) cotter, cotter pin

An older way of attaching the cranks to the bottom-bracket axle, by the use of cotters, wedge-shaped pins threaded on one end to accept a nut. See my article on Cottered Cranks and my Tool Tips article on tools for Cotterless Cranks>>

<<Cotter Pin -- A piece of metal that is instrumental in activties like holding your axle bolt in place. It\'s sort of a long, thing piece of metal, bent in half with a small loop at the top. You put it through a hole, the loop keeps it from going all the way through, and then you bend the ends back towards the top to hold it in place>>

<<Cotter pin : goupille fendue, nf Goupille fendue le long
de son axe, dont on replie les extrémités après sa mise en place. ... >>

\"Cotter\" pin se dit aussi \"split pin\". Aussi, on abrège souvent \"cotter pin\" à \"cotter\". C\'est pourquoi je préfère parler de \"split pin\" pour \"goupille fendue\" et \"cotter\", voire \"cotter pin\" pour \"clavette\".
