Tow Bar Pivot Pin

I just replaced my antique Roadmaster tow bar with a Demco Dominator (used)
on our DX3 & decided to make some new pivot pins for it. I made the pivot pin from a 1/2" stainless steel bolt (no more rust) & screwed and glued into to medium size screwdriver handle. They're easier to install & remove than the common bent style. I also replaced the common hair style retaining clips w/ 3/16" tractor style lynch pins. I find them easier to use & were only 50 cents ea. at the local Tractor Supply store. To use with existing pivot pins, you'll probably have to drill a larger thru hole.

Would this be the wrong time for a guy to admit to using an actual screwdriver in place of the pin to make it to the parts store for a replacement?

Pivot Pin

The actual pivot pin is a 1/2" dia. stainless steel bolt, to which I attached a plastic screwdriver handle for extra leverage. Using a standard screwdriver for a pivot pin is probably not a good idea.
