That type is available at pretty much any farm type store and a few other places. Not sure the extra kick in your diagram is necessary.

Don't use cotter pins on those particular pins.

If I'm not mistaken you are showing the hairpins that lock the lynch pins on your 3-point stabilizer arms. I use hairpins at that location and have narry lost one. Now - go down lower, where your 3-point arms attach to the rear differential housing or whatever. I've lost a few at this location. I now use high carbon bolts and Nylock nuts.

After all the searching and finally using these bolts & nuts. The neighbor takes a pair of pliers and makes a 45 degree bend in the final inch of the straight leg of the hairpin. Like me - his only reason for removing the 3-point arms would be to repair damage.

Roy, i've been looking for these as well. I dropped one and it's long gone. i was using cotter pins for a while, then a piece of rebar wire. then i gave up and don't bother using anything. Ive bladed a few miles of road, mowed a bit with the brush mower and have yet to loose a pin. I'm likely just lucky. At least i have some luck somewhere....
I find i was pulling those pins almost every implement change. Gotta have something quick and easy.
