BigZ is on a distinguished road
The locking devices only keep the pin from moving side to side, should be no need to get female threads on them. They also stabilize the upper end of the link plates, if your installation uses link plates. Does it?
As you are suggesting, I also switched to pin with cotter key holes rather than the threaded pin unit.
