I have a Dobinson's swing-out (dual jerry cans and spare-tire). The pull pins have a big warning sticker on them "Warning: Manual Operation Only", meaning that the pin must be lifted rather than rammed into place. Last weekend, while I was setting up our camp, my darling bride proceeded to ram the spare-tire swing out into the pin stay 3-4 times.

Bent the pin so that it won't lift or lower, rendering it useless.

I've got to cut the pull pin off and weld on a new one.

This looks like a good option: Spring Loaded Pull Pin - https://www.tmrcustoms.com/products/spring-loaded-pull-pin

Anybody else have any recommendations?

Do any of our vendors offer such things?

Thank you in advance for your input.

Take'er easy.

You might look at Mcmaster-Carr. They have something similar that will lock into the retracted position (called the "wife setting").


And here are some other links:
