Can I replace a pin similar to 70-195 with a push pin?

A home owner from CT says:
My porch screens currently have nylon push pins similar to your 70-195,1/8 x 1 1/4". After 10 years of the sun baking them, they have become brittle and many have broken and need replacement. As the holes for these are already 1/8", could I use your 5/32 push pins? The screen frame depth is 11/16"

Good Morning,

I believe this may work for you. Keep in mind, though, that you do not want to drill the hole too large. You will want a little friction so the pin stays in the "open" or "closed" position.

Thanks for the reply Dave,
I'm sure it'll work.
