Thicker window screen pins

A home owner from VA says:
Hi,
After about 10 years, a bunch of my windows need various parts replaced. The windows use plunger bolts on the side, and pins at the top to anchor in place.

I measured the diameter of our pins and they are 0.157 inches but I've only been able to find the 1/8 push pin here. Since the holes are already pre-drilled, do you have a slightly larger size pin, or will the 1/8 pin still work? I noticed it had a slight bump in the middle so I wasn't sure if that would hold the pin in place.

Thanks much,
Kathie

Kathie, take a look at the 70-009 Pluger Pin; it measures 5/32" at the top (0.156).
