The shafts that are rotating or transmitting torque are not connected by it. for instance, the connection between a steam engine's crosshead and piston rod. A socket and spigot joint is another name for the Cotter joint. The Cotter's joint is composed of three major components. (I) Cotter (II) Spigot (III) Socket
