Pin Spherical Joint

The sphere has 2 degrees of freedom: rotation around its longitudinal axis and rotation around a horizontal axis. The sphere is kept by two cone holes on green base and pink cover.
The pin-groove contact restricts the third rotation of a simple spherical joint.
The large circular hole on the pink cover is for inserting the sphere when assembling.
The cover is one fourth cut off for easy understanding.
