Good Morning,
Could you tell me if you have the below product or similar, but with a length of 5cm (Aprox.2 Inches)to replace my originals of which date back to 1999.

Plunger Pin Latches, 5/32"
Product Code: 70-009

Thanks you/Best Regards,

I'm afraid we don't have any that long. The screen frames used today are not as wide as they once where. Today, the screen frames are narrower and that is why there is no need for longer pins. What I have done in the past is to cut the collar/neck of the black plastic cap that comes with the 70-009 so as to make the pin stick out further. It might work for you, but I'm not sure.
A quick learner from Germany says:
Dave,
Many thanks...but since the dufference is of some 2cm I will in all likelyhood have to fabricate something...am thinking of usind rivets which are 5 cm long as a starting base.
Cheers!
Gerry
