Thank you for posting.

Begin by taking a look at the Bifold Door Pin Assemblies.
A home owner from MARYLAND says:
Thank you....I had already looked at these & I do not see anything that comes close to what I need.

Have you taken a look at the 23-115 and 23-118 top pivot pins?
A home owner from MARYLAND says:
Yes, I did...my doors are metal and the screw is a threaded screw.

Can you submit a closer picture of a pin that is not broken? If not, please submit a close-up image of a broken pin.
A home owner from MARYLAND says:
The screw in pin is approximately 1" 1/4 long but longer replacement would be no problem & diameter is 3/16. Plastic cap is 13/16 long & 5/16 diameter..The srew fits into plastic cap and then it screws into top of metal bi-fold; cap fits into top track...I lost the previous screw & cap.

Sorry, but we're having some difficult locating this exact set-up. Are there any markings on the part or on the door itself?
A home owner from MARYLAND says:
The only thing on the door is a small sticker with what looks the the manufacture date 3/88 with 173 under the date....I'm not positive but I do believe I bought the at Hechingers who have long gone out of business and they may have been Stanley but that's just a guess...Sorry, I can't be of moor help.

I'm sorry, but we have not had any luck with identifying this pin. I spoke to a few experts and not one seemed to be familiar with this piece.

Thank you for your patience and allowing us time to research this part. I am sorry we can't be of much help to you at this point.

Thank you for your time & effort.
