Thanks for thinking of SWISCO.com for your hardware needs!

To identify what plunger pins you need, check out our selection of pins to see if anything there meets your needs. Knowing what material and size pins you need would be a big help, can you get back to us with that information?

TEXT OF MY RESPONSE:

Hi Mike,

I did view the "selection of pins" in your 6/12/17 response, however I still have the same question as "a quick learner from Minnesota" had in 2017. However I will share with you all the info. I know to see if you can help, thanks!

1.) I need replacement screen pins, but unfortunately, despite literally years of efforts, I have been unable to find out who made or installed the windows and screens.

2.) Just like "a quick learner from Minnesota" I have screens which, on the frame of the screens themselves, there is a sticker which says "A-X7164." I do not know if this information is relevant to the material and size of the pins themselves. (Maybe you can clear that up for me?)

3.) In your 6/12/17 response, you asked about the material and size of the pins. Pls. see attached photos:
-Material: the pins are clear plastic
-Length: from what I can tell from some of Swisco's posts (including Tom's 6/18/20 post), the "length" is measured in a variety of ways, so I am confused. So pls. see the attached photo with the measuring tape in it, measuring approx. 1-5/8"
-Also, not apparent from the photos but the pins have springs in them.

4.) It seems pretty clear to me that my pins do not match Swisco's "Window Screen Pin" (part #70-195). However, maybe the "5 Pack, Snap-On Plunger Pin Assemblies" (part #70-219) is what I need?

Thank you for any help you can provide! I am frustrated with my window installer, not Swisco, this process seems absurd so I am grateful for any help!

Thanks for reaching out to us. Sorry to hear you're having trouble with these parts, but I think we can help. To start out, you don't need to worry about window brand. Your screen parts look generic so it's entirely possible knowing who made the window wouldn't have been helpful to begin with.

Looking at your photos, I think your original pins are a closer match to our 70-009 and 70-008. Ours are metal, not plastic, but that doesn't really matter. I'm more concerned about size. Please review the two dimensions we show for these products and let me know if either part matches up. If not, let me know what dimension differs and I can see if I can find something better.
