Pin to hold window screen in window

A handy person from Mars, PA says:
Hi,

I need replacement pins that hold the window screen in the window. It has a 1/2" spring around a 1/8" dia. pin that is approximately 1" long. There is a plastic cap on one end (approximately 3/8" long, with a flange head, on the screen side) and a metal cap (approximately 1/2" long) on the other end.

Thanks.

Look at our 70-008 and 70-009 and see if either of these can work for you. If not, please take a few pictures of the pin in question and we can try to find a better match.

Hi, Thanks for the information. I looked at these earlier, because this is what mine look like, but I am confused about the length. What is the 5/32" and 7/32" length? What is this measurement?

Thanks Tom.

That measurement is the size of the pin head. Check out these images to see what I mean.
