Bimini top attachment pins

Bought a used 07 246 and it came with a factory bimini top but no pins to attach it to the windshield frame.  I bought 2 different size quick release pins from the marina but neither works.  Can anyone tell me what hardware is supposed to attach it to the windshield frame, or a size, or a vendor that would know, or a link to the right ones?  Or is it special and maybe I have to drill for a new, more standard size??
Thx

    I have discovered that it is threaded, 1/4 x 20 with a sleeve.  I was able to fashion a working part from some 1" SS screws and packing washers I had laying around.  Not ideal but functional.  Boat is not here now so I can't get any pics.

    OK, here is a picture of what I was able to fashion for my factory bimini.  I sure would like to get ahold of the actual parts for this if anybody knows where I can find them.  Emailed Rinker parts, no response yet.

    Looks like that works from what your showing...the factory screws have big knobs on them so you can remove them by hand with no tools, west marine or on line- otherwise if your happy with what you have your good to go!
