Contact Noel (The Knurl) about sending stuff to you from the US. He has been offering his help for years to guys down under who need stuff. Those seat pins would be really inexpensive to mail.

It is the UPS Fed/Ex DHL guys who charge ridiculous rates....and that's who most stores use.

I used to be I just dream about it.

You are trying to fix a problem that does not exist. Those pins are robust and don't break unless you do something ridiculous to them.

You are more likely to lose them...or the rubber caps...or break the rubber connection between the caps.

Not an issue to be resolved until the unlikely time you do something silly.

I have been using 5mm bolts with nylock nuts for like 5 years, you buy 35mm long SS bolts, and cut them so that there is enough thread left to screw the nut on.

The 35mm bolt has just the right amount of unthreaded part for the application. Why make this hard with some special over the top priced pins?
