I lost one last year and ended up finding some heavy gauge wire and bending a replacement with a vide and hammer and pliers.

I ordered from Amazon but it will not get here in time. In the meantime I drove all over and found this to use temporarily. Thoughts?

That should work as good as the original pins. Like others said once the bracket is in place with the chain on it it shouldn't move.

I have a different brand WDH and it uses the same pin you just bought never had any problems, I feel safer with the wire to hold it in place. Have a great trip.

A number 8 bolt has a smaller diameter. Should fit nicely.

Good idea, maybe I'll get an extra one. I currently use a lock but its too difficult to remove.

But it has thread, right? This is 1/4 inch. I had a hard time using a bolt with threads.
