Default RE: Pin or not

I had hinges come loose in my trainer because I didn't do a good job gluing them in. Now I do a good job gluing them in and always pin them. They probably wouldn't come out even if I didn't use the pins, but I prefer to crash my planes from pilot error and not have them go in because something failed that I could have easily prevented. Necessary - maybe not. But pinning my hinges makes me feel better.
