Hello friends,

I’m an artist (painter) and a novice wood worker. I have this pochade box (painter’s box) that features the pin and spring (see pic). That pin pushes down and locks the drawer when the lid is down. This pin is broken, the bolt that threads into the bottom side of the pin is gone and the pin itself is snapped off. The bolt keeps the pin from falling out when the lid is open and the box is moving around.

What is this pin/spring gadget called?

Where could I order more?

I’ve tried searching all kinds of word combinations and searching google images and nothing. Many thanks for your help on this!
