I would like to try out a component that operates like a combination of the two pictures provided - spring loaded pull pin, with a pin finish like a tubular latch (chamfered/filleted finish).

Do these exist?

If somebody can tell me their correct name or better still, provide me with a link to a manufacturer's site that would be great.

Thank you

  • $\begingroup$ I’m not sure it exists, but you could get the top one, and grind the shape you want on the end of the pin. That said, you may find a detent with a spherical end which may work for you. Browse Carr-lane or McMaster. $\endgroup$ – GisMofx Oct 8 at 10:47

please note that (since there is a huge amount of manufacturers) it is not our job to look for your part. But as starting point:

Here are some sites where you can look for an index plunger. There is a ton of options but on first glance I couldn't make out the smae type you were looking for. It's likely that you have to resort to GisMofx's hack and grind/mill the bevel on the standard part.

I'll extend this list to more sources whan people comment.

Thank you GisMofx and M.Bauer for the advice, those website will come in handy for future research.

Norelem actually have one, which can be found here.

I also found a spring-loaded slide bolt latch from McMaster-Carr which will also suit what I need (Link).
