where to buy: tire swing spring loaded pin?

in the middle of building my tire carrier and ive been lurking the TJ rear carrier build by bersrk, and i notice some guys used a spring loaded pin to keep the swing arm from coming back..

anyone know where to buy this? did you have to piece it together at a hardware store/lowes etc or does it come in a kit of some sort?

IMHO you are better off with a latch like the De-Tas-Co. More secure and easy to open. The spring pin does not add tension like a latch does.

I made mine. Used some 3/8" rod inside some steel tubing which was slightly larger inside diameter than the rod. Cut the tubing into two pieces about 1.5" inches long. Used 3/8" washers to capture the spring between the two pieces of tubing which I welded to the spindle carrier. Bent the rod in an "L" shape after heating it with my torch. Bought all the pieces at Lowe's. I would like a tighter fit between the rod and the tubing it slides in, but it does the intended job, so I'm not worried about it.

Any place that sells swing up trailer jacks will have them in a kit. It's the same spring pin for locking the jack. They are like $5, I used the 1/2" pin.

Anyone else find these for a good price? I'm curious to see the different designs people are using...
