Detent pins refer to pins that have a mechanical feature that prevents motion until this feature is released. One simple example is a pin that has a spring-loaded ball pressed into a hole along its length. The pin cannot be disassembled until the ball is pressed into the body of the pin, allowing the pin to slide free.
