The 70-195 window screen pin does not come with a spring. This pin is not used with a spring, it fits through a tight hole in the window screen frame and is used to keep the window screen in place. It is not recommended for new applications. If you need a window screen pin with a spring, take a look at the 70-009 plunger pin.
A home owner from Atlantic City, NJ says:
For an exisitng installation using this type of pin, are there other more durable replacements (metal) that I can consider?

Currently the 70-195 window screen pin is only available in plastic. There are no other alternatives to this window pin at this time.
