Curious to see how it will hold up. The pins give the impression of being larger then lockrights or Aussie. But the pins in fact are hollow. The the spot where the abuse will take place on the pins is the smallest diameter of the pin itself. The pins have a groove so you can hold the pin into the locker half when assembling it. Then once installed, you pull the pin and it releases the locking pin. The spring that holds the outward pressure in the locker is what sits inside the hollow pin.

Just finished install on a D44.

i had a detroit e-z locker in my dana 30 on my tj with 35's and then 36's for about 60,000 miles. never had an issue. mine was installed my a jeep tech i know and trust. its still in there being used today by the new owner. probably has another 10,000 miles on it by now.
it survived broken stub shafts on 2 different occasions. im sure some people do flog their vehicles harder than i do, but was used significantly. many w.o.t. assualts at the citadel. it has been all over drummond many times. done silver lake and the mounds many times. numerous trips to the u.p.
nothing is unbreakable, but i know alot of people using them with great results. perhaps you got a bad unit from the factory? defects happen?
perhaps it was just bad luck.

not that there is anything wrong with a detroit or a spool or even a welded carrier. to each there own.
