I have a 1994 Prostar. I do not have the locking pins that go through the bottom of the platform. What can I purchase to go there?

I've used cable ties in a pinch. You can contact your dealer, or one of those on this board for replacement pins.

On the newer boats the platform is secured with a spring loaded pin. I had an older prostar and the guy that I bought it from had used stainless bolts they self locking nuts. As long as it's not going to rattle off I don't think it really matters.

Here is a picture of one of this pins on my boat. It's sideways but I think you can figure it out.

Dang, that reminds me. I have one that doesn't have a spring on it anymore.

Tractor Supply and even Northern Tool has about every kind of pin that you could use.

Do you take your platform off much?

Pins gave me nothing but trouble and finally got deefed so I replaced with stainless nut and bolt combo since I only remove my teak a couple times a year.

That's what I did.

my local Ace hardware has the ones the Mastercraft gives with their X-1 platform brackets. They are not spring loaded anymore but they are a pin that slides all the way through and have a thick "wire" that arches from one side of the pin and slides over the other. They are no more than a buck each.

I think this is what you're talking about....... they come in two styles.... arched hoop and squared hoop (pictured)

either way, I use the squared hoop pin in my 91's platform.... perfect fit!
