I contacted Coleman, and happily they sent me 4 free additional pins. 2 of the 4 pins were broken during transit. This particular item, the green pin, seems to be a design flaw, as it is too brittle, too delicate for the purpose for which it is intended. I cannot take responsibility for others actions, but I am certain that I will use either a trimmed wooden toothpick to…
