Source for the 4" quick release pins for the Oliver rear bumper


Recommended Posts

I have this part bookmarked from another thread, but looking at it, this isn’t the right size (mine measure ⅜” dia x 3” usable length). But it might be a good starting point for you -

If you do find the right part, please post a link; I need to order a few myself.

Edit - this looks like a pretty good source:

The full stainless ones aren’t at all cheap, but hopefully you’d only have to buy them once.

Fastenal has the Monroe/vlier at around $26. $20 if you have a wholesale account, and buy online. 

We have similar t-handle pins on our 2008. Glad we haven't lost one, at that price.

Thanks guys,

Good sources. Since my pins were frozen due to corrosion (north west costal salt air) I ordered the hi-grade 18-8 stainless. OUCH!! VERY SPENDY!!  they cost more than the pins you had marked.  Hopefully getting the good stuff will prove to be a good value long term.   They are on order from McMaster-Car.

Their website is most user-friendly,  I think.

You can define diameter and useable length/grip.

A little more expensive,  but definitely easier to use 

Plus, I trust their specs 

I've also used fastenal, locally, for hard to find fasteners and hardware.

Probably too late now but putting a WD-40 or rust remover on the balls and moving thme with a screw driver or other tool would loosen them up so they work fine. Try it and save the pins for spares.
