This resolution and infill combo seems to be totally sufficient for the PLA I printed with.

It's effectively solid.

How I Designed This

First things first, I whipped out the micrometer and measured the hell out of the OEM pin.

Once I had a good set of measurements, I opened up Autodesk 123D Design, and started laying down the parts. The flare on the shaft of the pin, near the cap, seemed like it flared out a little, so I replicated that using stacked cones.

Nice! I need to make a locking mechanism for mine. Damn raccoons! :D
