In the title monomeric trimethyltin(IV) isothiocyanate–4,4-dimethylpyridine adduct, [Sn(CH3)3(NCS)(C7H10N2)], the SnIV atom shows a trans-C3SnN2 trigonal bipyramidal coordination. The SnIV atom lies out of the equatorial plane by 0.033 (4) Å in the direction of the donor N atom of the N-heterocycle. The crystal studied was a non-merohedral twin with a minor component of 48.8 (2)%.
