Replacement Screen Pins

A handy person from Montgomery, IL says:
Sir or Madam:

I would like to replace all the plunger pins in my window screens with something of quality as the current pins seem to break as soon as you use them. The white plastic handles become brittle and break and the spring mechanism seems to fail easily as well.

Attached are some photos that may help. Also, to add some detail to the photos:

The total pin length is about 1.75"

The width of the screen frame is about 15/16"

The thickness of the screen frame is about 1/4"

The pin is metal with a white plastic "handle" on the inside end of the pin.

The metal outside end of the pin is about 3/16" across (not diameter).

Please let me know which pin would be a good quality replacement.
If you need anything else from me, please let me know.

Thank you for your time and attention to this communication.

Hey, Tibor, thanks for posting. Take a look at either our 70-009 or 70-008. Could either of these work for you? Let me know what you think.
