HEADER latch broke, help

Anyone have an easy fix for the header latch. one of the metal pins that holds it together came out. i looked around and did not see any replacement parts on line and before i try to fix it, i thought i would see if anyone has done this before and how. its the passenger side, outside pin. i don't have enough room to get a rivet gun in there to put in a new rivet. hmmmmm i said in an inquisitive tone????hmmmmmm ps its a besttop sail cloth TJ

Just remove the latch (It is held on by 2 torx screws) and check it out in comfort. I'd just replace the whole latch....
