Any One Know What This Is Called?

I would lose my head if it were not attached and before I lose these, I want to "stock up." Anyone know what these are called and where I could buy them. They are for my weight distribution system.

Tie a cord on them and attach the cord to something on the bracket they go thru.

Do a scan for hitch pins on google. There is nothing pictured that resembles what I need nor could I find anything a local hardware store, but thanks. Amazon sells them and they are called Weight Distribution Replacement Pins.

You are more accurate. That's what I used to call it when I had that kind of setup.

Yep, I don't know how it came off since it felt tight going on, I was sure glad I had spares.
