Safety Pin for Eaz-Lift WDH

We have a new-to-us light weight trailer that is equipped with a Eaz-Lift Recurve WDH which works really well. It also has the Prodigy RF brake controller and brakes on all 4 wheels.

While towing it home -- about a 450 mile trip -- I noticed one of the locking pins for the WDH bars had slipped 1/2 way out of its location. Inspection revealed that the securing detent ball was gone which allowed the pin to slip out of its hole in the mounting bracket. Needless to say if it fell completely out the bar would float free with who knows what consequences. As a temporary fix I put a wire through the hole and wrapped the pin with it. It kept the pin in place for the rest of the trip.

I plan to drill out the remaining hole and secure the pin with a small linch pin. I think that is a more positive way to secure it but would appreciate any pros and cons to this idea. The pin on the other side still has the detent ball in place and seems to be functional. This type of pin requires that a plunger be pressed to relieve pressure on the detent ball which allows the pin to be removed.
