Abstract : Shipping container latch pins are installed utilizing apparatus including two pivotally interconnected working members having opposite endportions. Motive means in the form of a bolt member are carried by one endportion of one working member and are operative to move the associated endportions of the working members away from each other, thereby moving the opposite endportions toward each other to press a pivot pin into a latch. The opposite endportions are biased away from each other by a spring, and include opposed pairs of open-ended slots for receiving the ends of the pivot pin.
