Where to Find Quick Release 'Lock Pin'

My Bruce anchor uses a 1/2" diameter x 7" pin to lock the anchor to the pulpit and I have looked all over the internet and can't find a replacement. Any ideas? This is a pin that goes through one side of the pulpit, through a hole in the forward end of the shank of the anchor and out through the other side of the pulpit. It had a simple swiveling piece of metal on the end that prevented it from pulling through unless the piece of metal was lined up with the holes(s).

try Mcmaster Carr catalog #115 on page 3298 The part number for a typical pin like you reference is PN#98416A562 for $6.02 in Zinc Plate. The biggest shown in 18-8 stainless is for a 3/8" dia pin PN#98480A135 @ $6.47 ea. Go to their web site and type in locking pin and see what comes up for you.

1/2" stainless rod is pretty cheap
By 7" (they should cut it to length for you)
A drill press and 1/8" drill and a 1/8" roll-pin ought to do the job
Chamfer the sharp edges with a bench grinder or even an angle grinder...

Wow. Nice variety. Might be something that will work there.

Yeah. Good point. Sounds do-able if I can't find ready-made.
