    Merely stating that a key ring with a spring that weighs next to nothing wouldn't cost $9 with $12 in shipping.
    Besides its not whinning its more of a whimper and more about the having hunt around for them. Worst part is the neighbor didn't offer to replace them.

    Newty,

    I replaced mine with this style $3 galvanized pin (not sure if that is the exact size) from Home Depot and it's holding up great through one season so far. They are a lot easier to put in and remove than the stock one and no sign of rust so far.

    Thanks cab, I'm going to drop by west marine on the way home from work and see if they have a stainless version of that.

    if they don't,try hd/lowes. that's where I found mine. iirc, they have stainless. make sure you buy a few sizes to find the one that matches your platform. seems that I went through a couple of sizes before finding the one that fit the best.

    Pretty sure those are the ones. 1/4" I took a good look at one yesterday and they appear to be the same as the link.
